The scouting combine is for prospective athletes trying to be drafted to show off their skills for NFL teams.

The USA Today reports that NFL executive vice president of football operations, Troy Vincent, first outlined the new rule in a memo sent to teams days prior to the Super Bowl.

Prospects that refuse to submit to a background check will also be barred from participating.
