FOS-TV: The Next Level

A host of former Lions are on campus preparing for their NFL careers. See what they are up to as Draft day draws near.

More than a dozen former Penn State football players are set to enter the NFL next week, either via the Draft or as rookie free agents.

At some point over the past few months, nearly every one of them has worked out at the Nittany Lions' facilities to get ready for their NFL careers. We stopped by Holuba Hall recently to watch PSU speed development coach Jeremy Scott put A.Q. Shipley, Gerald Cadogan, Mark Rubin and Lydell Sargeant through an intense workout that lasted more than an hour.

This was one of two sessions the players went through Friday, and involved working on different aspects of their mobility and endurance. Later in the day, they hit the weight room to work their lower bodies.

Typically, Mondays and Thursdays are spent doing drills in Holuba Hall and then working the upper body in the weight room. Tuesdays and Fridays involve the drills and then the lower-body work. Wednesdays are usually a lighter workout where the athletes can catch their breath, so to speak.

Where earlier workouts may have been geared toward getting the athletes in shape to excel at the NFL Combine and/or Penn State's Pro Day, the latest sessions are aimed at preparing them for the rapidly approaching NFL mini camps.

Check out our exclusive video of the most recent Friday drills below. This is about 10 minutes of a session that stretched well past one hour.
