Justin Rogers, a former defensive lineman for Auburn, is set to attend the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis from Feb. 27 to March 4. This announcement was made through a social media post by the program on Wednesday morning.

Auburn is poised to have a significant presence at the NFL Combine, with Justin Rogers, a former defensive lineman, joining the ranks. The invite-only event, scheduled from Feb. 27 to March 4, serves as a platform for NFL scouts to assess top draft-eligible players. In addition to Rogers, three other representatives from Auburn, namely Jaylin Simpson, Nehemiah Pritchett, and D.J. James, who are defensive backs, have also accepted invitations to participate in the Combine.

Justin Rogers earned his invitation to the NFL Combine based on his impressive performance during his sole season at Auburn. In the 13 games he played, Rogers accumulated 17 total tackles, two tackles for a loss, and a sack. Notably, he showcased his prowess during the Ole Miss game, where he started, registering four total tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a sack.

Rogers’ notable contributions in the 2023 season secured his position as a starter in Auburn’s defensive front. Prior to his stint at Auburn, he played three seasons at Kentucky, amassing 60 tackles and recording five tackles for a loss in 33 games.
