FWG: Training for the NFL Combine

Typically a college athlete will train at a facility with which his respective agent has a "relationship." This relationship means that the agent will send his clientel there, year after year. If you want to delve further into this, I highly suggest the book, "The Draft" in which Pete Williams follows several college football players from the end of their season, through agent selection, combine prep and then eventually the 2004 NFL Draft.

But, back to the combine. We train day in and day out for what amounts to about 10 minutes of work. The bench test, pro-agility, L-Drill and the all important 40 yard dash (where fortunes can be made or lost...4.9 Maurice Clarett? C'mon).
