WATCH: Bodybuilders Race NFL Players in the 3-Cone Agility Drill

TEST Football Academy pitted pro football players against pro bodybuilders in the 3-Cone Drill. Who won?

NFL Combine athletes are some of the fittest humans on the planet. Before they even begin training for the Combine events, elite college football players spend thousands of hours training to improve their athletic performance. Once their final game wraps up, they focus on fine-tuning their abilities to achieve a perfect balance of strength, speed and agility for the Combine.

One event that measures all three of those attributes? The 3-Cone Drill. Also referred to as the L-Drill, the 3-Cone Drill requires athletes to run a distance of 30 yards and change directions five times. Moving swiftly and fluidly through the cones is a great measure of overall athleticism, and top performers at the Combine complete the drill in under 6.65 seconds.

It takes only seconds for a player to complete the drill, but the hours that went into it number in the hundreds.
