Former Oklahoma State wideout Chris Lacy was one of several receivers that made the Cowboys’ 2017 offense one of the most difficult to stop in the country.
Lacy, the team’s sixth-leading receiver with 264 yards receiving on 20 receptions last season, saw a slight decline from his 2016 statistics because of how loaded Oklahoma State was at wide receiver and a shoulder injury that slowed him down early in the year.
His dip in production didn’t keep Lacy from earning an invitation to the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, however, but the news came as a shock to Lacy, according to the Tulsa World’s Kendrick Marshall.
Don’t get Lacy wrong, he was thrilled to learn the news while he was on his way to class.
“I automatically lit up,” Lacy told the Tulsa World. “I was so excited that I couldn’t pay attention in class.”
Lacy, who’s been training for the 2018 NFL Draft, will get the opportunity to prove his talents among the best of the best at the NFL Combine, scheduled for Feb. 27 to March 5.
He was one of three Oklahoma State receivers invited to Indianapolis. He’ll join Biletnikoff Award winner James Washington and 1,000-yard receiver Marcell Ateman in Indianapolis.
