Video: Stanford takes you inside the call of a lifetime

The dream of playing in the NFL is a very powerful driving force for thousands and thousands of guys playing football across the country. According to NCAA research, just .08% of players that participate in high school football make it to the NFL, and an even smaller number than that hear their names called on draft day.

Stanford helped to take that motivation a step further by taking you inside the New England Patriots War Room to experience Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft placing a call to Cardinal defensive back Jordan Richards. Stanford ended up having a total of six guys go in the first five rounds (151 picks) of the NFL Draft last weekend.

This seems like it would be a pretty good motivational strategy for the guys on your roster with NFL dreams.
