Canadian Adam Thibault is heading to the NFL Super Regional Combine in Detroit.
The Laval Rouge et Or defensive back/kick-returner gained the invitation following his showing Sunday at an NFL regional combine in Baltimore.
Despite suffering a mild hamstring strain during the CFL combine March 23, Thibault posted a time of 3.93 seconds in the short shuttle in Baltimore. He also recorded a vertical jump of 38 inches.
Thibault will be one of two Canadians at the NFL Super Regional Combine, which will be held April 12-13. David Foucault, an offensive lineman with the Montreal Carabins, was invited following an earlier NFL regional event in Florida.
