NFL Video Directors

Most likely the main reason the Big Ten Video Coordinators meet in Indianapolis during February is the contact we have with those in the NFL. And at the beginning of the NFL Combine, the league's Video Directors gather to discuss how they will make their partnership stronger for each other and for their teams. Led by Mike Perkins of Jacksonville (left on head table) and Dave Levy from Tampa Bay (seated to the right of Perkins), the NFL discussed the need to implement HD league-wide. Again, the only two teams that experimented with HD in 2011 were the Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers. But after much discussion it was decided the league would be HD in the 2013 season. The recommendation heads to the NFL Competition Committee, and upon approval would be voted upon by the owners in March.

Meetings wrapped up on Wednesday the 22nd. Only the Video Directors remain in Indianapolis while their staffs head home. The Directors are responsible for shooting all drills during the 2012 NFL Combine.
