The Arizona State Football team bid a fond farewell to 17 seniors at the Annual Awards Banquet on December 8. A select few were invited to the NFL Scouting Combine which begins Wednesday, February 20 in Indianapolis.

The NFL Scouting Combine or National Invitation Camp is a week-long event that subjects former college players to several physical and mental tests in front of NFL general managers, coaches and scouts. These drills are administered without names, only numbers, and allows for an even playing field for lesser known players from smaller programs.

Of the 333 players invited to this years showcase, three of them are former Sun Devils hoping to improve their draft stock in the upcoming NFL Draft on April 25-27.

The players are divided into 11 groups depending on their position and are scheduled for events over a four-day period. Here are the schedules for the three Sun Devils invited and the events in which they will be participating.

  • Broad Jump
  • 20-yard shuttle
  • Three cone drill
  • 60-yard shuttle

Each NFL team is allowed 60 interviews in 15-minute intervals at the end of the first three days, so it’s safe to assume that each team would do 20 per night, for a total of five hours interviewing potential draftees.

The numerous accolades of Hubner, Johnson and Magee have allowed them the opportunity to showcase their skills and meet with the best minds in the NFL. With any luck and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, these men will realize their NFL dreams in late April.
