Heading into the opening of the 2015 preseason, 47 players who attended an NFL Regional Combine and/or the NFL Super Regional Combine in 2015 currently hold roster positions.

NFL Clubs signed players from the 2015 Regional Combines hosted from February though March, including 25 players who were invited to the Super Regional Combine at the Arizona Cardinals Training Facility in Tempe, Ariz., March 21.

The inaugural Veteran Combine was held the following day, also at the Arizona Cardinals Training Facility, and 17 players who participated in the Veteran Combine are currently on an NFL roster.

Twenty-six of the league's 32 teams (81 percent) have at least one 2015 Regional Combine and/or Super Regional Combine participant on its roster, and six of those teams – Atlanta, Green Bay, New York Jets, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington – retain at least three 2015 Regional/Super Regional Combine alums.

The Oakland Raiders currently have two players on their roster who attended a Regional and/or Super Regional Combine in 2015.

Wide receiver Milton Williams III attended the Baltimore Regional Combine, and wide receiver Austin Willis attended the Denver Regional Combine.

Both rookie wide outs will be in uniform tonight as the Oakland Raiders open the preseason against the St. Louis Rams at O.co Coliseum.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. PST.
