The Colorado Buffaloes have a couple of players eligible for the NBA draft this year with Evan Battey and Jabari Walker.

During the 2021-22 season, Walker even generated talks as a first-round choice. However, Battey is the bigger question mark of the two despite an excellent career in Boulder.

But, Battey is doing his best to get noticed by NBA scouts and is now headed to the Tampa Bay Pro Combine along with other NBA draft-eligible prospects. Others headed to Tampa include Kimani Lawrence of Arizona State, Abu Kigab of Boise State and Alex Barcello of BYU, among a number of others.

The Tampa Bay Pro Combine is a perfect chance for lesser-known players to get noticed, and it comes without having to compete with top-tier talent.

The combine will take place from Tuesday to Friday, and this is the second year the event has been held, so it will be interesting to see if this opportunity works out for these players.

Battey has a path to being drafted, and he will need to put together a nice stretch of performances to get more buzz heading into the summer.
