03:25 PM ET 02.21 | Layers of the NFL's immense popularity continue to peel back. The draft lays out what lies ahead for the league and its teams; the combine shows what to expect at the draft itself. With the 2013 NFL Combine set to begin on Saturday, organizers of the event are already looking for ways to draw more fans to the evaluation of prospects in the future. Bringing an element of direct competition to the combine's drills could be next, Albert Breer of NFL.com reported on Tuesday. Already-popular drills such as the 40-yard dash, bench press and positional drills could pit prospect against prospect in head-to-head races, workouts and skills tests in an attempt to make the event even more made-for-television.
