Iowa State senior receiver Allen Lazard has been touted as an NFL prospect the past several years. Now he'll get a chance to prove it. Lazard has been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

The combine is an invitation-only event for the best players in college football. It will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis from February 27th through March 5th. The event puts players through various physical and mental drills that can have a big impact on when a player gets drafted in the NFL Draft.

Lazard appears custom made for the NFL. He was a four-year starter for the Cyclones and is the school's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, and games with a reception. At 6'5" and 225 pounds, he is also physically ready for the play of the NFL.

ESPN Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. projects Lazard as a mid-round draft pick.
