TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A quartet of Sun Devils will be making their way to Indianapolis as they eye a future in the NFL.

On Friday, the NFL released the full list of participants in the annual NFL Scouting Combine. Among the 337 participants were four former Arizona State players: wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, running back Eno Benjamin, offensive lineman Cohl Cabral, and punter Michael Turk.

Aiyuk and Cabral exhausted their collegiate eligibility, while Benjamin and Turk were early entries.

A stellar senior season had Aiyuk shoot up draft boards, and he is frequently being mentioned as a first round possibility. Aiyuk caught 65 passes for 1,192 yards and eight touchdowns, showing elite playmaking ability after the catch.

In two years as the starting running back, Benjamin set numerous ASU records, including the single-game and single-season rushing records. He is being mentioned as a possibility as early as round two through the middle rounds.

Cabral was an All-Pac-12 pick in 2018 as a center, but team needs saw him shift to left tackle to open the 2019 season before sliding back to center. A team captain, Cabral has shown the tenacity and versatility to be a second or third day selection.

Turk burst onto the scene by setting the NCAA's single-game punting record in his first game as a Sun Devil. He put together a strong season and was named to the All-Pac-12 first team. His decision to skip his final two years of eligibility surprised many, given the history of punters being selected in the draft.

The combine will be held in Indianapolis from Feb. 24 through March 1. ASU will also hold their Pro Day later in the spring.

The first round of the 2020 NFL Draft will be held on April 23. Rounds two and three will fall on April 24, while rounds four through seven will be held April 25.
