Utah Utes linebacker Devin Lloyd led a group of five players with Utah ties who participated this past week at the 2022 NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Lloyd is considered a first-round draft pick and the top inside linebacker in this year’s draft class by some experts, including ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.

“I feel like everyone out here feels they’re the best, as they should,” Lloyd told NFL.com during combine festivities. “These are some of the top athletes in the country, and so everyone has every right to feel that way.”
