I'm -- the director of football operations -- test football academy former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman himself -- -- in now joining us on line you don't. We are doing well -- now we the reason wherever you were here obviously is because you have that -- football academy and you'll. Start getting guys ready for the combine and I've always I go back to what Ron Wolf said in. My former partner a Brian Noble from the Packers. They always said you know what that is where all you -- -- do is determine if you're right or wrong on a particular player because you wanna see what they can do in the forty and all that. We -- me a football player on film any day of the week so how do you take football players that are on film and they're good. And make them better. -- basically what we do was we we are able to take a player and -- that are potential -- -- -- resonate -- for the important. It job interview a lot so we just want to make sure that they come -- -- prepared -- -- -- -- pretty certain drills. And make sure that they can look at that back up there there -- or thirteen summit you'll. But it's it's -- any. A particular. Very very specific ways that we go about it there's hours and hours of research you know scientific studies. But everything that they do this for a reason it works. We talk about guys -- can you run fast that they can no -- you know the 225 they can do it twenty times thirty times were put it's always been fascinating. When the one -- scores get leaked out. It's it's just seems to be what we focus on -- in some cases mainly with quarterbacks you can tell whether somebody's got the good news smart's actually perform. In the NFL for people that aren't sure what the one Ehrlich is can you give us like some examples of questions it would ask -- Right -- ridiculous. Names and they say. You know which one doesn't. Belong which one I'll repeat itself -- you know math equations. Just simple you know. -- testing -- that you can process. Information and how quickly -- permission. -- -- or you know. Simple blue -- commissioner division. You know. Just. Different random questions for -- -- of the process -- -- and you know it is true. I would say it more quarterbacks -- at its they want to see everybody and -- what part of your day. Dogs I've always found that fascinating you get a guy that you know scores really low on the wonder Lincoln certainly he's an absolute mental moron and you know -- Trying to cast him aside Nancy can turn out to be a pretty good player. Com bowl when you get into it did -- the come -- and -- am sure you talked to GM's all over you've been through yourself you what specifically are they looking for. Independent in the to come by process. Just gonna come on -- this year because like I said -- most of the time you're coming there to see everybody but you know. What guys look like on film if you've done your homework. Right now -- but we're just looking to see. If that the product that -- -- are the ones who are you wore a due to -- here. So poker project all medically arm and again -- backyard football with these tests the potential to improve your speed of the criticism alms folks ability. But more important than but it crosses the important part -- because. You know. If you're gonna regret this where there's millions of dollars -- -- -- want to make -- -- making the right decisions so that -- -- -- doing their research -- their investment basically. I guess do you tell guys when it goes through the interview process how to interview. Because -- -- some questions of just been wacky weird man. Yeah no -- actually be prepared for everything yet we -- we have. Our sport psychologist on that that the rubber placed. He -- want to look -- If you just drop. So these guys you know don't just wanted to test book edited to to -- and get ready physically but also mentally and everything that encompasses. Becomes -- -- Beisel took a one stop shop we looked at but to say about -- -- -- could we we we touched on everything. But they're going to have to see so there's no real surprises -- I'm -- rhetorical questions that. You know that are going to be -- -- weird but. We we always say to prepare person. Is our most of the teams similar. When it comes to -- because I think as much as we concede. Say trying to get a guy to bench 225 pounds in ten times more than what we already does is that. What -- -- -- as his when do you start taking these guys in your camp. And assuming they're ready out of there after their bowl games arm. With our hearts dirt start is January 6. We have about you know anywhere between 68 and couple weeks to get them prepared your -- Prepared ready for the combine and in February. So -- You know we're just trying to get -- and you're sort of possible. Make sure we. Success there in -- being -- -- for shall movements -- Dribbled and taken in and -- weak point -- either into the trees. Look at all that put them in the correct. Correct movement pattern and start stacking. Weights arm to cardiovascular big shouldn't do this technique correct so -- got a really Britton down physically first and then build them back. -- had a guy that's had a okay college career but you've got in so well prepared for the Tom -- and that is his stock is they say Rose dramatically. He got cheered that you have just an absolute test and freaked out market and I'm article today -- projects -- That players here where -- -- well -- that -- you know injury plagued career war. They can have the from the -- out but. A team was willing to seek. A potential on the player I mean that's you know that's what good looking for and usually sometimes. Tensions -- Smaller school school kids. They'll come from the big big program that might consultants teams -- a governor did because they wore it and it -- our. Coached or -- and so they see on a ton of potential in -- law. You know so you wouldn't eventual. Actually. The long -- like -- here. What that was so what's a typical day for guy coming through your camp. Well. -- all. Usually around seven to let them have breakfast -- put you know. Depending other nutritional -- all the on the practice rounds seven into the facility eight start doing their mile structurally so arm. Centerfold role in the future all the removed schools there are correct as what -- -- before we reported to look at best and be cute and corrective exercises to court the movement patterns. So that you -- your work on that. Our speed session depended on the day. Either -- or -- direction that'll last for about an hour and a half to two hours. They'll have a break will have their third ships in the supplements are ready. Their great start back -- -- Now anywhere between an hour and a half two hours there and let. Whether it's an upper body push the world body -- or probable but it -- upper body pull. Arms. Out of that war happening you know they're probably. -- -- And another. How war breaks and walk right into position also we have all the talk and speak about position that great. A great on the professional but all of next professionals or current pros you know -- the country for the receivers were extra Olerud -- lost and then for the so -- we -- students. With everything that they do not only for the common -- to be what could be and to see how did to be who -- professional. From an actual current or past well. It's absolutely fascinating how much goes into the preparation for very few seconds I guess when they actually get a chance to be judged. By general managers and -- it just it's always been astounding to me that guys. You know like a show they they put their body work on tape but -- have to almost come their prove yourself all over again it's just to kind of confirm my guess would GMs are already looking for. -- real quick before -- let -- -- What's more important the mental side of things in the interview process in the one Erlich and everything goes -- whether or is it the physical side. -- it's due to bowl equally good if you if you flop -- warned him that. Through the roof on the other you know I ever heard chip and that you have to you have to know that you -- -- RR Michael -- It's change and so Woody -- wouldn't. The past five years if there's spot coming up all around the United States so. Everything in every war and -- so much invested and that's. That this business is growing because -- so much emphasis on both mental and physical and they want. To make sure that they get that much unrestricted popping up there's -- -- for.
