BLESTO/National Scouting Reports
There are two scouting reports that 25 teams in the NFL pay to belong to a scouting service, 12 with National Football Scouting and 13 with BLESTO. The remaining 7 teams operate independently and do their own individual scouting.
National Football Scouting
Founded in 1961, National Football Scouting provides their 12 member teams with a master list of senior prospects soon after the colleges have completed their spring practices. Scouts compile the player’s collegiate stats, film and other intangibles, along with the names, positions, heights, weights, 40-yard dash times, Wonderlic (intelligence) test scores and an overall grade is given to the players. Also, each team receives an evaluation form filled out by National scouting. Teams then use this information to determine which players they want their own scouts to evaluate when the colleges start two-a-day workouts in late summer.
Also founded in the early 1960’s, BLESTO takes its name from its original members; Bears, Lions, Eagles, Steelers, Talent Organization. BLESTO holds one major distinction from its National counterpart. National utilizes its own scouts while BLESTO relies heavily on scouts allocated by each membered team working closely together. Consequently, the BLESTO scout visiting your school may also be a scout for the New York Giants or any other of the BLESTO teams.
Proverbs 3 | 5-6 - New International Version (NIV) 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
BLESTO/National Scouting Reports
BLESTO Teams - (13)

Independent - (7)

These scouting reports can change during the course of a season. Not every player on the National Scouting report and the BLESTO will be drafted. Approximately 28% to 32% percent drafted will not be on the aforementioned scouting reports.
Deuteronomy 31 | 6 - New International Version (NIV) 6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
College All-Star Games
As the season comes to a conclusion there will be all-star games for selected seniors for all levels of college football. There is the senior bowl which is held in Mobile Alabama and arguably the most prestigious of the all-star games. The East-West Shrine game is held in Florida. NFLPA game (formerly Texas vs the Nation) played in San Antonio Texas. The Casino del Sol College All-Star Game played in Arizona. The Dixie Gridiron Classic played in Utah (only pac 12, Big Sky, Conference USA, Big 12, Mountain West, and WAC). The Battle of Florida played in Florida. These games are designed to showcase the top talent at every level. This is an opportunity that players can use to increase their draft stock or potentially sabotage it if not taken seriously. These are examples of some of the AllStar games that are played.
Matthew 16 | 26 - New International Version (NIV) 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?

TAK Sports Preferred Training facility is Raw Fitness in the Lake Norman area of Charlotte North Carolina. Coach Mike Montefusco formerly of API will be the lead trainer.
Mike is a certified trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is a certified speed and agility specialist through the IYCA. He has his certificate in the Functional Movement Screen, and assesses an athletes’ movement quality. He knows how to correct dysfunction and build performance on a solid foundation. In AZ he studied strength and conditioning at the world famous Athletes’ Performance Institute. He had the privilege of watching Trent Richardson prep for his 2012 pro-day while he learned the exact system that produced 14-1st rounders in the 2012 NFL draft. Mike believes no great athlete should perform poorly on the combine tests, so his passion is to create the most explosive athletes on Earth, and give them all the answers to the combine tests.
Hebrews 11 | 6 - New International Version (NIV) 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Our in depth training program based on the exact formula that Coach Mike Montefusco has learned during his education Athletes’ Performance. FMS (Functional Movement Screen) Complete assessment of postural mobility and stability. These elements predict injury and represent the foundation we need to build upon so as not to pour fitness on dysfunction. During the course of our training, we will eliminate any barriers to your performance. Pillar strength The core is in the center of all movement and no force can be properly expressed through an inefficient core. We will bulletproof your pillar so that superman will be jealous. Movement preparation Have you ever been so warmed up that you feel completely in the zone? We will show you how to duplicate that everytime you step on the field and especially the day of your combine. Plyometrics The human body can be trained to store and release free explosive energy just like a stretched rubber band. Plyometrics will develop your muscles and tendons to be extra elastic and springy to give you that extra explosive edge. Movement skills There is no room for guessing games when it is time to perform your combine tests. We will give you the exact techniques to excel and use slow motion video analysis. We will drill it until you are more comfortable running your tests on the laser than you are comfortable breathing as you read this. We have our own hill, and sand pit to train with. Turf will feel like a trampoline that you spring off of after using our methods. Power Power is the combination of strength and speed. This is the name of the game gentlemen. After using the same cutting edge techniques the pros use, you will realize the best athletes are not born, they are made. Heavy sleds, Vertimax training, as well as using Keiser air loaded equipment, will not only make you ready for the NFL, but make you ready for superhero duties. Strength Training There is a reason players lift weights. It works! We do simple things savagely well. We will program for you the most “bang for your buck” exercises. We will outline every set, every rep. We will do all the thinking so you can spend your thoughts on football. Energy Systems Development We will program the precise interval methods to make your body adapt to the right body composition and energy production capabilities. Lombardi said, “fatigue makes cowards of us all.” Lombardi didn’t have access to our scientific methods. Nutrition This is the hinge that the door of freaky results hinges on. We will be handling your nutrition plan for you. Nutrition can make a good athlete great and a great athlete good. You will get the right foods and the right supplements for the job. You will not believe how well the human body can perform when fueled correctly! Regeneration Training does not make you faster or make you explosive. At the end of our sessions, you will actually be slower and weaker! Regeneration after each session will make you stronger and faster. Strategically placed naps, massage, cold hydrotherapy, flexibility work, etc, will all play a key role in your success so we leave no stone unturned.
Philippians 4 | 6 - New International Version (NIV) 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
This February, roughly over three hundred of the very best college football players will be invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) in Indianapolis, Indiana. Top Executives, Coaching Staffs, Player Personnel Departments and Medical Personnel from all 32 NFL teams will be on hand to evaluate the nation’s top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft. This intense, four-day job interview is an exciting time for the athletes and a vital step in achieving their dreams of playing in the NFL. The NFL Scouting Combine will be held February 20 – 26, 2013. Participants are determined annually by a Selection Committee. The Directors of both National and BLESTO scouting services, which combined represent twenty-five NFL teams, are joined by members of various NFL player personnel departments to form the committee. The participating NFL executives can rotate on a yearly basis, and remain anonymous. All eligible players are reviewed and voted on by the committee members. Each athlete receiving the necessary number of votes, by position, is then extended an invitation. While it is not a perfect science, the goal of the committee is to invite every player that will be drafted in the ensuing NFL Draft.
The official invite list will be posted in early February.

College Pro Day
College Pro Day is another opportunity for the player to showcase his talent and ability. The same drills that are conducted at the NFL Combine will administered at the Pro Day. Again, Pro Days are attended by a bevy of NFL personnel (including, scouts, coaches, general managers, and even owners). Pro Days usually begin around the first week of March and is held at the University of which the player played football. However, there are times where some players are eligible to take part at other institutions pro day. Pro Days are crucial because this is the last opportunity to impress before the draft.

Undrafted Free Agents
A priority free agent is able to sign with any team that makes an offer. After the draft, teams will make multiple contract offers to players who were not drafted. This is not to be perceived as a negative thing. The benefit to being a free agent is that the player will then get to choose from multiple team offers and they are able to pick the best fit for their career. In addition, instead of renegotiating after three seasons if you’re drafted (per collective bargaining agreement drafted players must play three full seasons before they are eligible to renegotiate their contract)your contract can be renegotiated after two seasons. Roughly 1/3 of priority free agents that are signed make team rosters in some capacity. Furthermore, undrafted players who are not priority free agents can also get a mini camp invite and have the opportunity to showcase their skills. If the player performs well than he would get an invite to training camp. Roughly 1/4 of undrafted mini camp invites get an invite to training camp.
