So no, take this crappy idea elsewhere.
If the NFL thought they could make significant money out of moving the combine around and opening it up to the public you bet they would do it. Being an event for teams to scout players means very little when you start bringing up dollar signs.
The only issue is, not enough fans watch the draft after the first round, let alone go to the combine where they will have never heard of most of the players.
The idea would be great for die hards but casual fans just won't buy into it.
