Video: Watch Carson Wentz's Combine interview with the Eagles last year

Posted by: Chris Vannini on Thursday March 02, 2017


What is an NFL Combine interview actually like?

At the Combine, teams are allowed 15-minute private interviews with players. You can only fit in so much, and you can always have interviews later at Pro Days and other times, but it’s a chance for everyone to be around the player and create situations and reactions. Bruce Arians likes to have offensive players draw up their 2-minute offense.

On Thursday morning, the Eagles posted a 5-minute video of Carson Wentz’s Combine interview from a year ago. The Eagles would later pick Wentz at No. 2 overall.

In the five minutes, Wentz is asked about his flexibility in calling plays, his reaction to criticisms of FCS, and then a lot of questions about film as he goes through it with coaches. The room is packed, and the questions are detailed.
