INDIANAPOLIS — If a college football player wants to go to the pro's, the NFL Combine is the biggest interview of their life.

"It's huge," NFL Events Senior Manager, Carly Slivinski, said. "So this is their first step into the professional football league, this is their path to the draft as we say."

Up to 335 of these athletes can be invited to the combine, and you can see this all for free at Lucas Oil Stadium.

"They run the 40 yard dash, they do medical testing, they do psych interviews, they do MRI's at the hospital, it's a big deal for them," Slivinski said.

At the convention center, you can check out the Vince Lombardi trophy and Superbowl rings.

You can also see the guys get as many reps as they can on the bench press.

"The best part is to come cheer them on and help them do those last few reps that might get them ahead of somebody else," Slivinski said.

Official 2019 invites include three players from Indiana University and eight from Notre Dame.

The NFL Draft is right around the corner and you have a chance to see who you think will join Colts Nation based on their performance during scouting weekend.
