Sigler, a 6-foot-3, 311-pound native of Mobile, Ala., was one of more than 300 prospects invited to participate in the 2016 combine in their quest to achieve their NFL dreams. He is the first Gamecock to participate in the combine since Alan Bonner in 2013.
The combine will be held from Feb. 23-29 at the home of the Indianapolis Colts. According to the schedule of events on the NFL's web site, defensive linemen will have media interviews onFriday, Feb. 26 and on-field workouts on Monday, Feb. 29. The combine will be televised on the NFL Network and on NFL.com.
Sigler was a second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference selection as a senior despite missing most the season with injuries. He still recorded 32 tackles, including 2.5 for a loss and two sacks, while also breaking up four passes. He diverted opposing offenses on a defensive unit that ranked 12th nationally and first in the OVC in total defense.
As a junior in 2014, he grabbed multiple All-America honors and was named the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year after leading the JSU defensive linemen with 37 tackles, nine for a loss and 3.5 sacks.
