NGL staff will then work participants through specific drills designed to improve athletic ability, speed, and explosiveness. Here, athletes have the opportunity to tap into the secrets of proper workouts that have helped players make it to the NFL, including cone and ladder drills. This period educates participants on how to improve football-specific speed, agility and quickness movements, and also how to train specifically for the needs and requirements of their positions.

Participants are separated into position groups (QBs, RBs, WRs, OLs, DLs, LBs, and DBs) to work individually on football skills and techniques with league position coaches with college and NFL experience.

ONE-ON-ONES

Each NGL Tryout concludes with one-on-one passing and linemen drills, which may be the highlight of the workout.
