The NFL Combine is right around the corner, and college players will have the opportunity to show off their measurables to NFL scouts, coaches and GMs. Have you ever wondered what your 40 time is? Vertical leap? Short shuttle? Broad jump? I'm going to find out exactly how unathletic I am this weekend at the NovaCare Complex when I (along with BGN member GreenInBaltimore) try out for the Philadelphia Soul. I'm debating between trying out for QB or WR, but I'm thinking QB. Any of you that went to BGN Bowl 1 saw my mediocre arm in action, as we stomped all over D3Keith's team, but I digress.
Anyway, you too can try out. Soul head coach Mike Hohensee will be evaluating all players in attendance, and you will be put through the measurables listed above, as well as other position drills and one-on-ones. The tryouts will be this Saturday, January 29. Registration begins at 7:30am, stretching begins at 9am. If you're a kicker, you can try out later at noon, once all the men have cleared out of the building. It is $60 to try out if you pre-register here.
