The "joke" is that Syracuse Orange Football's best player is often their kicker or punter. In the case of 2015, it was a reality thanks to Heisman Winner* Riley Dixon.
As he prepares for his post-Syracuse career, Dixon looks to the NFL for a shot at the next level. He'll get a chance to get up close and personal after receiving an invitation to the 2016 NFL Combine.
These dudes had to stop mid-camp on the field to accept invites to the NFL Combine. Couldn't happen to better guys! pic.twitter.com/sZXJymvyPY— Bret Culbertson (@BretCulbertson) January 4, 2016
The NFL Scouting Combine is scheduled to be held February 23 – 29, 2016. It's not clear as of yet how many other SU players will be invited (have to figure Ron Thompson will be there as well). Makes sense that Riley would lead the way just as he did all season long.
