USF football senior defensive tackle Deadrin Senat has joined teammates QB/GOAT Quinton Flowers and WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the third player to get an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine.
Senat enjoyed a career year in 2017 as he finished second on the team in tackles with 66, only behind USF all-time leading tackler Auggie Sanchez. Senat also finished second on the team with six sacks, one behind fellow defensive tackle Bruce Hector.
He earned a first-team all-AAC selection this year and was named to the second-team in 2016. Senat was also the defensive MVP for the Bulls in 2016.
The senior from Immokalee emerged as a force inside during the last five games of the season. He had a career-high 13 tackles as well as four TFL, and 2.5 sacks in the loss to Houston. Three weeks later he added 12 tackles versus Tulsa in an extremely emotional senior night.
In the 38-34 Birmingham Bowl victory over Texas Tech, Senat made himself some money when he recorded five tackles and a career-high three sacks.
Senat finishes his USF career with 179 tackles, 23.5 TFL, and seven sacks.
The NFL Scouting Combine begins February 27.
