Ex-USC receiver George Farmer participates in NFL regional combine

Former USC receiver George Farmer participated in an NFL regional combine in Colorado last week

Former USC receiver George Farmer was not invited to the NFL scouting combine last week in Indianapolis, but he participated in an NFL regional combine at the Denver Broncos facility in Englewood, Colo.

“I’m a competitor,” Farmer told the NFL Network. “Of course I wanted to be in Indianapolis, but I’m blessed to be here to showcase my skills.”

Farmer, 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, declared for the NFL draft with a season of eligibility remaining.

The former Gardena Serra High standout caught 25 passes, four for touchdowns, last season at USC.

He was slowed or sidelined by injuries his freshman and sophomore seasons and was sidelined in 2013 after knee surgery.

“I definitely think the adversity I’ve overcome in the last four years has built me to be who I am now,” Farmer said.

USC’s Pro Day is March 11.
