Pressure of pro days, combine drive some to steroids

Ross Tucker / Sports Illustrated


More than 300 of the top college football players in the country will be pulled, prodded, tested and queried almost to the point of exhaustion as the annual NFL meat market known as the combine begins this week.

Unfortunately, the intense pressure to put up outstanding results in Indianapolis, and at the pro days that follow, leads some players to make decisions regarding performance-enhancing drugs that they otherwise might not have made.

I recently spoke with two newly retired NFL players who admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs before and/or after the combine, and they shared with me the basis upon which their decisions were made. Full Story – Sports Illustrated
