The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is a thing of the past, and there are times when the entire event feels like a whirlwind. Just when you are getting comfortable watching the quarterbacks working out, the defensive backs are wrapping everything up on the final day.
The on-field workouts are awesome to watch, but often times the off-field interviews are the moments which don’t get much publicity and carry some very significant weight to them.
Thanks to Rebecca Toback of SB Nation, who attended the event, she was able to capture some great video from several players who could be viewed as prospective players for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Check out interviews with defensive backs, safeties and some linebackers as they kick start the first part of their journey to the NFL.
Check out the interviews below:
