The NFL Weight room - why is it special?

It's something I've always kind of wondered about. You frequently hear talk about "needs an NFL weight room" or "give him a year in an NFL weight room". It was the write up on Glennon that sparked this recent thought.

What exactly is different about an NFL weight room that a guy can't get in the NCAA or even from a private trainer?


Surely it's not knowledge. I would assume that a good trainer is a good trainer regardless what level he's working at. Can the trainers in the NFL really know that much more than the trainers at a school like Alabama?

So is it just more time spent in the weight room? not having classes and such? because let's be honest, are classes that much of a burden on NCAA football players? particularly at big football schools like LSU which aren't exactly known for the education side of things.

More money = better equipment & more personal attention from the trainers? I would assume the big football schools aren't skimping in this dept either.

Stricter diet control? More money on better food/supplements? Do NCAA teams provide supplements to players?

What makes the NFL weight room so special?

a combination of all these things?
