University of Delaware’s senior defensive back Nasir Adderley has been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, according to the Blue Hens press release given Tuesday.
The six foot, 200 pound defensive back had 87 tackles ( top-20 nationally for DB’s), four interceptions, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble in the 2018 season.
The Philadelphia, PA native was also the only college football player in the country with over 160 tackles and nine interceptions in two seasons.
The Blue Hen defensive back has earned a lot accolades in his impressive career including two-time All-American, three-time All-CAA performer, first team ECAC All-East and STATS Inc. National Defensive Player of the Week Honorable Mention.
Adderley will be able to show his skills and speed at the combine as he joins some of top college players in college football. The NFL draft prospects will be evaluated by NFL coaches, executives, scouts and medical staff at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Adderley will be the latest Blue Hen invited to NFL Combine which the list includes Bilal Nichols (2018), Nick Boyle (2015), Zach Kerr (2014), Joe Flacco (2008), Pat Devlin (2011), Ben Patrick (2007) and Eddie Conti (1999).
The Blue Hen defensive back does have a NFL blood line though, as Adderley’s cousin Herb Adderley played for the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. Herb Adderley was all-pro defensive back, won three Super Bowls and was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.
