In the last five years, 25 FCS players have been selected in the NFL Draft despite not receiving an invite to the Combine. With only 14 FCS prospects invited this year, there are sure to be several more players to add to his list.
One guy that appears to be headed this way is Jacksonville State offensive guard B.J. Autry.

The 6-foot-5, 340-pounder is graded at a 5.54, which on NFL.com's scale means he has a chance to become an NFL starter. NFLDraftScout ranks Autry as the 16th best offensive guard in the draft.
It's been a winding road to get to this point. After stops at Baylor and the junior college level, Autry developed into a 2017 All-Ohio Valley Conference First Team player and a 2018 Walter Camp Football Foundation All-American.
Autry's last collegiate honor was an invite to the Senior Bowl in January. Even without competing at the Combine, the big man is firmly on NFL radars and could be another overlooked FCS prospect who hears his name called at the draft.
