The University of Connecticut's No. 10 ranked defense will be well represented at the Senior Bowl in January.
Defensive end Trevardo Williams and corners Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Dwayne Gratz were all selected to participate in the college showcase, which is a a major attraction for NFL scouts.
Williams totaled a team-high 11.5 sacks and led the league with 0.96 per game this past season. Williams finished his four year career at Connecticut as the all-time leader in sacks with 30.5.
Wreh-Wilson and Gratz were longtime starters and were staples in the secondary for four years. Gratz finished his career with 41 career starts while Wreh-Wilson had 39. Gratz led the Huskies this past season with three interceptions while Wreh-Wilson had one.
The Huskies have had a player selected in the NFL Draft in each of the past six years. Last year Kendall Reyes was a second round pick of the San Diego Chargers.
The most players the Huskies have draft were four each in 2009 and 2011.
