At this time of year hundreds of college football players are hoping to impress enough to secure themselves a professional contract in the NFL.
But what happens if it doesn't work out come May?
Well for Pittsburgh defensive tackle Tyrone Ezell the WWE could be next it seems:
"I am really thinking about getting into it," he said recently.
Ezell didn't get an invite to the Combine, instead working out at Pittsburgh's pro day Monday and he is aware he has only a limited time to impress NFL scouts.
The 6' 3", 310 pound player spent the last two years are Pitt's starting defensive tackle, and although he spoke to Chiefs, Colts and Browns staff at the pro day, he is only projected to be a late draft pick at best, and could potentially go undrafted altogether.
So while football remains his first aim, as a self-proclaimed WWE fanatic he is giving serious consideration to swapping the gridiron for the ring:
"It is a possibility. I was thinking about getting into that if it doesn't work out.
"That was my first love and still is my first love, to be honest with you," Ezell told reporters.
Ezell has previous when it comes to the wrestling organization.
In December 2013 he paraded around the field with a replica WWE Championship Belt over his head after Pittsburgh had won the Little Caesars Bowl.
Ezell would be following a star-studded set of individuals should he make the switch with The Rock, Titus O'Neil and Roman Reigns all former college football players.
