CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Except for the few who already have donned cap and gown, most of the 330 prospects heading to the NFL Combine next week have put their pursuits of a college degree on hold so they can focus on their football futures.

They've traded campus life for high-tech gyms where they're trimming milliseconds off their 40-yard dashes and three-cone drills and facing mock interviews to prepare for the grilling from general managers in Indianapolis.

Pats' Brady does face-plant while skiing

Turns out Tom Brady is better at throwing touchdown passes than landing a jump on skis.
