On March 25 - 26, 2010 fifty six (56) free agent specialists came to Phoenix, Arizona to get evaluated trying to qualify for Coach Zauner's Free Agent Specialists Combine. A total of 87 specialists started out in the event and sixty four (64) made it into Saturday's showcase event.
A total of 24 NFL, 3 CFL (Canadian Football League) and 4 UFL (United Football League) Teams attend the event. It was a good turnout however it was a little disappointing for me that a six NFL and 2 CFL teams did not follow through on their verbal commitments.
On Saturday morning March 27, 2010 at 8:00 am I met with the Special Teams Coordinators, Special Teams Assistants, Pro Personnel Directors and Scouts.
In the photo above I am giving the group profile, background and contact information for all the specialists participating in the event. In this meeting I also went over the top list of sixty four (64) specialists that attended my College Senior Specialists Combine in Phoenix, Arizona February 20-21, 2010.
