Former Toledo football players Logan Woodside and Olasunkanmi Adeniyi have been selected to participate in the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The combine will take place from Tuesday, Feb. 27, through Monday, March 5.


Woodside finished his four-year Toledo career as the Rockets’ all-time leading passer, throwing for 10,514 yards. He also set the school records for touchdown passes (93) and passing efficiency (162.9). A two-time, first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection, Woodside was 29-9 as a starting quarterback. As a senior, he led the Rockets to a MAC Championship, throwing for 3,882 yards and 28 scores. He was named 2017 MAC Offensive Player of the Year and was honored with the Vern Smith Leadership Award, given annually to the league’s top player.


Adeniyi, a 6-2, 248-pound defensive end, was a second-team All-MAC selection in 2017, finishing third in the MAC with 20.0 tackles for loss. In his three-year career at UT, Adeniyi racked up 115 tackles, 28.0 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks.

Toledo had three invitees to the NFL combine last year: running back Kareem Hunt, tight end Michael Roberts and defensive tackle Treyvon Hester. All three were selected in the NFL Draft. Hunt went on to lead the NFL in rushing and play in the Pro Bowl in his rookie season with Kansas City.
