When you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort, you really never know who you might run into.

For instance, if you happened to be hanging out at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex this week, you might have spotted a few of the National Football League’s top draft eligible players like former Penn State star running back Saquon Barkley, who a few NFL experts think has a chance to become the first player selected in the 2018 NFL Draft coming up in April.

You also might have run into J.T. Barrett, Ohio State University’s star quarterback who led the Buckeyes to 38-6 record and to the College Football Playoff national championship in 2015.

Barkley and Barrett are among the 40 NFL prospects and veteran NFL players working out this offseason at the Tom Shaw Performance Camp at Walt Disney World Resort.

Players come to Disney to work Shaw because of his strong track record of producing NFL stars which includes training 145 NFL first round draft choices, 10 No. 1 picks and 11 Super Bowl MVPs.

They also come to the sports complex because they know they will learn how to run faster, get stronger, increase their endurance and add years to their professional careers – long term goals for all professional athletes.

  • Any precise dates? We are coming early May, likely just around the time of the actual draft so we probably will miss this, unfortunately.
