Prospects for this week's NFL Draft are giving local kids a taste of the drills they've gone through themselves.
It's part of the NFL's "Play 60" initiative, which encourages kids to be physically active for at least 60 minutes each day.
Eighty children were put through the gauntlet of drills without the pressure of scouts looking on.
Some of the kids were impacted by the Harlem gas explosion in March.
"It was fun being out here with these kids, man, and being to see how they look up to us as athletes, and being a role model for them in so many ways," said NFL prospect Khalil Mack.
"It felt really good," said one young participant. "We're getting a good workout with them. We're having fun doing it."
"Keep your head up. Even if you missed a catch, keep going. Don't stop," said another.
The draft will be held at Radio City Music Hall.
It runs from Thursday to Saturday.
