What’s it like to attend an NFL scouting combine? Courtesy of cooperation between the league and the Bridgestone Corporation, both parties made it possible for a handful of fans and team bloggers to experience the environment that resides in Downtown Indianapolis and inside Lucas Oil Stadium during the 2014 NFL Combine.
Feb. 23 marked the second day of player workouts. This day featured the quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs. The players were broken down into two quarterback groups, two wide receiver groups, and a running backs group. Most of the quarterback and wide receiver drills required cooperation from both parties. The overall coverage lasted a little more than eight hours.
Titan Sized editor Joshua Huffman was invited as a special guest. Huffman got to spectate all of the activities from the first group of quarterbacks and wide receivers. These were conducted around 8:00 to 10:30 AM Central Time. He spent the entire weekend taking in everything from the bus trip to Indianapolis, a one-night accommodation at the Hyatt Regency and the actual combine event.
What’s so different about viewing the combine at the stadium as opposed to watching it at home? What made it such a unique experience?
