Last NFL activity prior to a work stoppage?

With the Super Bowl now in our rear view mirror the next big bit of business for the league and its teams is the scouting combine. From February 23 - March 1 players invited by the league will strut their stuff for coaches and personnel people in Indianapolis. The fact that March 4th seems to be something of a drop dead date (what's with all the alliteration?) should not concern any of us, I'm sure.

The complete list of invited players can be found here. After the showing of the Steelers secondary in Super Bowl I am especially interested in the defense backs who will be available. With that in mind, here are the names of the 35 defensive backs participating in the 2011 scouting combine:

1. ALLEN, CORTEZ - Citadel
2. AMUKAMARA, PRINCE - Nebraska
3. BRINKLEY, NILES - Wisconsin
4. BROWN, CHYKIE - Texas
5. BROWN, CURTIS - Texas
6. BROWN, JALIL - Colorado
7. BURNEY, KENDRIC - North Carolina
8. BURTON, BRANDON - Utah
9. BUTLER, MARIO - Georgia Tech
10.CARMICHAEL, RASHAD - Virginia Tech
11.CHEKWA, CHIMDI - Ohio State
12.CUFF, VANCE - Georgia
13.CULLIVER, CHRIS - South Carolina
14.DOWLING, RAS-I - Virginia
15.GILCHRIST, MARCUS - Clemson
16.HARRIS, BRANDON - Miami (FL)
17.HOGAN, BRANDON - WVU
18.HOUSE, DAVON - New Mexico State
19.MARSH, CURTIS - Utah State
20.MAXWELL, BYRON - Clemson
21.MCGEE ANDREW - Oklahoma State
22.PATRICK, JOHNNY - Louisville
23.PETERSON, PATRICK - LSU
24.ROGERS, JUSTIN - Richmond
25.RUCKER, CHRIS - Michigan State University
26.RUTLAND, KEVIN - Missouri
27.SHERMAN, RICHARD - Stanford
28.SKRINE, BUSTER - Tennesse-Chattanooga
29.SMITH, JIMMY - Colorado
30.THOMAS, JOSH - Buffalo
31.THOMPSON, BRANDYN - Boise
32.TORRENCE, DEVON - Ohio State
33.VAN DYKE, DEMARCUS, Miami (FL)
34.WILLIAMS, AARON - Texas
35.WRIGHT, SHAREECE - Southern Cal

Let's hope there is a full 2011 season for these players (and all the others) to play in.
