Late February means the "Underwear Olympics" are about to take over the football headlines. The NFL combine is only days away, and LSU will be sending a multitude of players yet again to Indianapolis for the festivities.
According to LSU director of player personnel Austin Thomas, the Tigers have had more players invited to the combine than any other school in the SEC over the past four seasons. LSU will be sending 11 in 2014.
Testing well at the combine does not mean a player will be great. Showing great athleticism in tights is far different than performing well in pads.
Also, the combine is not the final time that players will get to showcase their skills in front of scouts. Schools will still host their own pro days before the NFL draft.
Nevertheless, running a blazing fast 40-yard dash can skyrocket a player's stock, which could result in millions.
