Former Georgia Tech B-back Patrick Skov will play in the NFL Players Association Bowl Game, a pre-draft showcase game in Los Angeles.

The game made the announcement Tuesday. Skov fought through shoulder injuries to play 11 games this season, starting eight, after coming to Tech as a graduate transfer from Stanford. He had 93 carries for 377 yards and six touchdowns, as well as three passes for 44 yards and two touchdowns.

Skov played fullback for three seasons at Stanford, filling a role as a blocking back in the Cardinal’s pro-style offense, as well as special teams.

Skov is ranked the No. 7 fullback on the CBS Sports draft rankings and projected as a seventh-round pick or undrafted free agent.
