Early Days of the Combine

The NFL Scouting Combine has become "Must-See-TV," but not that long ago, college prospect evaluation ahead of the NFL Draft was an entirely different ballgame.

The Oakland Raiders began play in 1960 in the American Football League, which would later merge with the National Football League in 1970. The "Silver & Black" have played in five Super Bowls, winning three - Super Bowl XI (1976), Super Bowl XV (1980) and Super Bowl XVIII (1983). The franchise boasts 25 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame including iconic maverick owner Al Davis (1929-2011).
