03/16/12 - Football isn’t all about what happens on the field. Sometimes what goes on inside a player’s head can be just as important. And that is where Monroe graduate Audie Cole believes he stood out in the recently completed NFL Draft Combine in Indianapolis. The combine is the showcase where NFL teams get to test, observe, measure and judge the character of the top prospects for next month’s draft. Cole, who completed an outstanding career at North Carolina State this season, was one of the linebackers invited to the combine. His best performance was in the three-cone drill, where he was fifth among the linebackers. Cole had been training for the physical tests for months, but didn’t put together his best day at the combine. “I wasn’t all too happy with my performance,” he said. “I think I did OK on some. There were some others where I know I could have down better. But that’s part of the experience. They try to wear you down and see how you will react.” He will get a second chance to perform the physical tests that he was disappointed with at the combine. “I’ll keep working after the Pro Day,” Cole said. “That’s when teams can come in and start working out players individual. Then in April, they might bring you to their facility for a workout.” Between the Senior Bowl and the combine, Cole believes he has been interviewed by every NFL team. But he has no idea which teams are most interested in him. “I have no idea,” he said. “I could go anywhere. Anywhere is fine with me. It’s not important where I go.” - Niles Kruger, Monroe Evening News
01/04/12 - Monroe graduate Audie Cole has completed his football career at North Carolina State, but he will have one last hurrah. Cole has been chosen to play in the Senior Bowl Jan. 28 in Mobile, Ala. The all-star game will be carried on the NFL Network at 4 p.m. Cole is a middle linebacker who finished the season as North Carolina State’s leading tackler with 108. He had 13 1/2 tackles for loss, 5 1/2 sacks, forced 4 fumbles and broke up 4 passes. After making 328 career tackles in 51 games, the 6-5, 239-pounder is projected as a NFL draft choice. The Senior Bowl will be a good place to showcase his talents. NFL coaches and general managers evaluate the players leading up to the game. - Monroe Evening News
