Former Auburn players Ben Tate, Antonio Coleman get ready for NFL combine

I wrote a story for today's newspaper about Ben Tate and Antonio Coleman preparing for the NFL combine, which starts today. Here's how it starts:

AUBURN, Ala. — The NFL combine has been in mind with everything Ben Tate has done at the Bommarito Performance complex in Miami the last month and a half.

The former Auburn running back’s daily schedule runs the gamut, from specific drills he’ll do in front of NFL scouts this week to full-fledged workouts to prepping for the barrage of questions he’ll be asked during the interview process.

“You know, this is a job now,” Tate said, “so definitely everything is focused all toward this.”

Tate and defensive end Antonio Coleman will be the Tigers’ two representatives at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis for the NFL’s scouting combine, which lasts from today until March 2. In that time they’ll be subjected to a seemingly endless series of drills, tests and interviews by more than 600 NFL personnel, including coaches, general managers and scouts.

Read the full story here. And follow the blog on Twitter.
