More than 40 NFL Draft eligible collegiate football players, including running back Saquon Barkley (Penn State) and quarterback J.T. Barrett (Ohio State), and veteran players have been working out this offseason at the Tom Shaw Performance Camp at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.
Workouts for Shaw’s NFL Draft hopefuls continue this week with the 2018 NFL Combine set for Feb. 27-March 5 while the NFL Draft begins April 26-28. The draft prospects and NFL veterans have been working side-by-side at the sports complex for the past six weeks. Shaw and his team work with the players on the exact drills, techniques, and strength and conditioning workouts they will encounter when they go to the NFL Scouting Combine in late February in Indianapolis.
Shaw has worked with 145 NFL first-round draft choices, 10 No. 1 picks and 11 Super Bowl MVPs. Other NFL players who have trained with Shaw at Disney include Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl tackle Eric Fisher, the number one overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott, Detroit Lions all-time leading receiver Calvin Johnson, Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl linebacker Kahlil Mack and Devin Hester, the NFL’s all-time kickoff and punt return leader (20 combined TDs).
Prior to establishing his own performance camp at Walt Disney World Resort, Shaw was on the strength and conditioning staffs for Florida State University, the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints.
