It was Tuesday, February 16, 2010, a day I’ll never forget. It was the day I got the call that every elite college football player in the world hopes to get. It’s the call that informs you that you have been invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine.
The combine represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase your talents for NFL executives, coaches and scouts.
I knew, if invited, I would have no problem standing out from all the rest of the world class athletes invited to participate. You might ask, how could I be so confident? Well, I’m not an elite college football prospect. I’m an avid NFL and league operations fan who is closer to 40 years old than I am to the last time I ran the 40-yard dash.
For the first time someone other than a prospect or a NFL insider was going to the scouting combine.
