INDIANAPOLIS -- The NFL Scouting Combine has grown into one of the biggest spectacles in sports since it's launch in 1982. Almost every national media member in the NFL industry has flocked to Indianapolis to see how young athletes handle the pressure.

Andrew Perloff, also known as 'McLovin' from The Dan Patrick Show, caught up with Bears Insider John 'Moon' Mullin at Lucas Oil Stadium to share why the Combine is one of his favorite events of the year.

"It's almost like a real sporting event," Perloff said. "The draft is the third most popular sport in the country now. It goes NFL, then college and finally the NFL Draft."

Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel drew one of the biggest crowds over the weekend for his media session. People want to see how he's grown since his hard-partying days at College Station. Perloff thinks the former Heisman Trophy handled the pressure about as well as he could of.

"Manziel is so polished. He had a message he wanted to get out," Perloff said. "I think Manziel is going to be a great team player. He's a star, he's like a Beatle walking around this place."
