The NFL scouting combine is a whirlwind event for draft prospects, involving far more than just the workouts that get the bulk of media coverage.

As soon as players arrive, they submit to a variety of medical tests -- and the lucky ones, like Louis Nix in the video above, might even get a lollipop for their cooperation.

Then there is the endless media scrutiny from those outlets covering the combine, scrutiny that will only increase should the players punch a ticket to the NFL. There are also throngs of fans and autograph seekers.

Check out the video to see how Nix, Tajh Boyd and Jake Matthews deal with the initial crush of combine madness, and what just might be their initiation into the frantic life of an NFL star.
