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.

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.
