Rhode Island wide receivers Isaiah Coulter and Aaron Parker and Rams’ offensive lineman Kyle Murphy will represent CAA Football at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, which takes place Feb. 27 – March 1 in Indianapolis, Ind.

Rhode Island is the only FCS school to have more than one player participating in this year’s Combine, and it’s the first time since Jacksonville State in 2017, and just the fourth time since 2000, that a FCS school has had three players invited. 

Coulter and Parker will show off their skills in front of NFL scouts on Thursday, February 27, while Murphy takes the field on Friday, February 28. NFL Network will provide television coverage of the Combine all week.

Coulter made the All-CAA second team in 2019 after ranking among the top five in the conference with 72 receptions for 1,039 yards and eight touchdowns. He had three games with at least 100 receiving yards, highlighted by making 12 catches for 171 yards and a TD vs. in-state rival Brown.

Murphy garnered first-team All-CAA and numerous All-America accolades after a dominant season at left tackle for the Rams. URI was one of two CAA teams to accumulate more than 3,500 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards during the regular season and they allowed just 2.1 sacks per game while averaging a league-high 42 pass attempts per contest. 

Parker earned first-team All-CAA and multiple All-America honors this season after leading the league with 81 receptions for 1,224 yards and nine touchdowns. He finished his career ranked second on URI’s all-time list for catches (216) and receiving yards (3,460) and third in TD receptions (30).

The 2020 NFL Draft will be held April 23-25 in Las Vegas. CAA Football has had at least two players drafted for 14 consecutive years, including three a year ago – Delaware’s Nasir Adderley (2nd round – Los Angeles Chargers), Elon’s Oli Udoh (6th round – Minnesota Vikings) and JMU’s Jimmy Moreland (7th round – Washington Redskins).
