Each February, hundreds of the very best college football players are invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind., where executives, coaches, scouts and doctors from all 32 NFL teams conduct an intense, four-day job interview in advance of the NFL Draft.
LBU Staff Prepares You for Each EventLBU staff prepares you for each event to maximize your effort in the best job interview of your life! Here is a brief breakdown of the measurable drills:
The 40-yard dash is the marquee event at the combine. It’s kind of like the 100-meters at the Olympics: It’s all about speed, explosion and watching skilled athletes run great times. These athletes are timed at 10, 20 and 40-yard intervals. What the scouts are looking for is an explosion from a static start.
The 3 cone drill tests an athlete’s ability to change directions at a high speed. Three cones in an L-shape. He starts from the starting line, goes 5 yards to the first cone and back. Then, he turns, runs around the second cone, runs a weave around the third cone, which is the high point of the L, changes directions, comes back around that second cone and finishes.
The bench press is a test of strength — 225 pounds, as many reps as the athlete can get. What the NFL scouts are also looking for is endurance. Anybody can do a max one time, but what the bench press tells the pro scouts is how often the athlete frequented his college weight room for the last 3-5 years.
The vertical jump is all about lower-body explosion and power. The athlete stands flat-footed and they measure his reach. It is important to accurately measure the reach, because the differential between the reach and the flag the athlete touches is his vertical jump measurement.
The broad jump is like being in gym class back in junior high school. Basically, it is testing an athlete’s lower-body explosion and lower-body strength. The athlete starts out with a stance balanced and then he explodes out as far as he can. It tests explosion and balance, because he has to land without moving.
The short shuttle is the first of the cone drills. It is known as the 5-10-5. What it tests is the athlete’s lateral quickness and explosion in short areas. The athlete starts in the three-point stance, explodes out 5 yards to his right, touches the line, goes back 10 yards to his left, left hand touches the line, pivot, and he turns 5 more yards and finishes.
As an NFL Prospect you want to make sure you are working with a team that knows the science of working with little time to prepare you to do your best. Once a NFL prospect has completed his college football career, he typically signs with an agent and reports to a training facility to begin preparing for the “biggest job interview” of his young adult life. Most players will arrive at a training facility during the first week of January.
LBU Understands the Importance of Time and PerformanceAthletes typically have up to six weeks to work to prepare for the NFL Combine and NFL PRO DAYS. NFL agents make a big investment in their clients and LBU understands the importance of time and performance. The goal for the athlete is simply to become stronger, faster and better.
Nothing is more important than maintaining the highest level of skill set possible. Our NFL veterans understand that to extend their career means training with the best skill and performance trainers available. At LBU we understand the time constraints on a professional athletes schedule. We understand that results driven training is a must. We also understand that sharpening the skill is the most important factor in your career. That is why players and agents work directly with LBU staff to further develop the health and career of the professional athletes.
