Scott Porter: What was the NFL combine experience like for you?
Buster Skrine: It was an amazing feeling for me. It means so much to be invited to the NFL combine. I know you have to get enough votes to get an invite to the combine so it means that there are a lot of teams out there that have an interest in you and have been impressed by my play on the field. I went there looking at it from a business prospective. It was a business trip for me to showcase my talent to those who haven’t seen much of me. I went in with a chip on my shoulder being a smaller school prospect. I came into the combine wanting to separate myself by showcasing my footwork, speed and my ball skills. I was very happy with how I did.
