BOISE -- Former Boise State wide receiver Cedrick Wilson has received and accepted an invite to participate in the NFL Combine, a source told KTVB on Wednesday.

Wilson was one of the most explosive receivers in college football this past season. He led the FBS with 26 catches of 20 or more yards, and his 1,511 receiving yards set a single-season school record and ranked No. 2 nationally in 2017.

Wilson is the first Boise State wide receiver to earn an invite to the NFL Combine since Titus Young and Austin Pettis both participated back in 2011. Young ended up getting drafted in the second round by the Detroit Lions that year, while Pettis was selected in the third round by the St. Louis Rams.

The NFL Combine has been held in Indianapolis each year since 1987. Wide receivers will go through their on-field workouts on Saturday, March. The event will be televised by the NFL Network.


Wilson will is currently gearing up for the NFL Draft at the Athletes First Training Facility in California.

Wilson is getting to work with former UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, a potential top 10 pick, along with former Florida State safety Derwin James, who many consider one of the top defensive players in the draft.
