NFL Scouts Check Out Talent At Sanford Fieldhouse

NFL Scouts Check Out Talent At Sanford Fieldhouse

The Sanford Fieldhouse has become home to an annual NFL pro day for KELOLAND standouts. It's location and with easy access to the airport, it's a quick stop for scouts.

More than a handful of NFL scouts came to see the best South Dakota has to offer. Tyler Starr, a draft hopeful from the University of South Dakota, is one of several athletes that came out to take part in drills.

"Really comfortable here. Got everything you can imagine here. Plenty of space, plenty of equipment and the technology is all state of the art. Couldn't find a better place to perform," Starr said.

This is the second straight year athletes and scouts have met up in Sioux Falls. While the centralized location of the Sanford Fieldhouse is nice, there's no limit to the testing scouts can put athletes through here.

"There's a lot of versatility to it. You've got half the field dedicated to football with football lines and then you got the other dedicated to all sports. The fact that you have got a field and weight room all together in one spot, as far as getting workouts done and training these guys across all sports, especially football, it's impressive to have," Vikings scout Mike Band said.

And that's why more and more scouts are showing up. From the Vikings, Broncos, Chiefs and even the Raiders, it was a packed house.

Former South Dakota State University defensive lineman Doug Peete tried to make the most of the extra attention.

"Everything you need is here. Lots of room, lots of open space. Being in Sioux Falls, which is a big city, a lot of people have access to it. Well located. I just think it's a really good facility," Peete said.
