Behind the Scenes: NFL Combine Athletes Getting Ready Night Before Workout

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistFebruary 25, 2013

If you are a draft junkie, you watch the NFL Scouting Combine from start to finish, analyze 40 times, long and high jumps, reps, etc. But did you ever know what players at the combine do the night before their scheduled workout? 

You'd never guess: they actually work out. We visited Athlete's Performance in the lower lobby of the Omni hotel in Indianapolis at around 10:30 PM to find guys sprinting, stretching, doing drills, etc. 

It's not what you'd expect at all. They aren't sleeping the night before, they are getting ready for the biggest audition of their lives.

Some players in the video include Sio Moore of UConn, A.J. Klein of Iowa State and Corey Lemonier, amongst others.  

Check out the video above as we take you on a brief look behind the curtain of what goes on the night before the NFL Scouting Combine.
