Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
What exactly does it take to be drafted into the NFL and excel? This video tries to answer that question by interviewing players and coaches who believe they've discovered the answer. Drew Bledsoe, the first overall pick in the 1993 draft, talks about how he prepared to become an NFL player. He talks about his earlier playing experiences that proved critical to his success. Bledsoe set many records for the number of attempted and completed passes. Dennis Byrd, the resilient New York Giants player who miraculously recovered from serious injuries on the field, discusses his youthful football experiences and why he believes he made it into the ranks of the NFL.
