I love football.


I played collegiately at the University of St. Thomas (as long as we consider being a kicker "playing football").

The NFL Rookie Combine


As part of the draft process in the spring, the NFL rookie combine has grown in popularity in the last decade or so.

  • 225 lb bench press reps until failure

  • Various change of direction running drills

  • Vertical jump

  • Broad jump

  • And a few more positional specific tests
