The NFL Scouting Combine is moving to prime time this year, and with a bigger spotlight comes more bells and whistles.

The league announced Friday that 16 new drills will be added to next week's workouts and 10 older drills have been removed.

Among the added drills is an end zone fade for the quarterbacks, a popular play in today's NFL. Quarterbacks will also now be throwing a timed choice route called a smoke route in which the receiver adjusts based on the coverage.

Defensive linemen will run a "figure eight" drill using two hula hoops.

Coverage of the combine begins Thursday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m. with quarterbacks and receivers taking the field.
