Two Wyoming Cowboys were invited to the 2017 NFL combine this weekend in Indianapolis. The two Cowboys were among the top performers at their position through the duration of their college careers. In Indianapolis, they got to put their skills to the test in front of 32 employers looking to sign them to an NFL contract later on this year.

Chase Roullier and Brian Hill put their talent out for the NFL to see on Friday. Roullier was auditioning for an offensive line job. At Wyoming, he played guard for most of his career, then moved to center for his senior year. Pro Football Focus graded Roullier out as the ninth-best player in the trenches in 2015.

Brian Hill is coming off of a stellar 2016 season where he ran for 1894 yards and 22 touchdowns to lead the Cowboys in rushing. Hill landed in the top ten in rushing yards nationally this past season. Hill declared for the NFL draft his junior season, wanting to potentially cash in on an NFL contract sooner than later.

Here’s how each graded out at the combine:
Brian Hill, RB, 6’1”, 219lbs, 31 3/8 arm length, 8 7/8 hands

40 Yard Dash: 4.54 seconds (13th among RBs, TJ Logan – North Carolina, 4.37)
