NFL Pro Bowl Experience

“With the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft…”  I panicked when I saw this part of the event because you can really pretend that you are in the NFL combine, showing off to the scouts!

They have a huge, interactive fan zone set up where you can participate in various activities, such as attempting your best vertical jump or seeing how fast you can run the 40-yard dash.  It’s all pretty awesome.
