NFL prospects have arrived in Indianapolis today to kickoff the opening day of the combine. Over the next three days players will be going through medical testing, weigh ins and measurements, and team interviews.
March 1st is the first day of workouts from the special teams, running backs, and offensive line. Then on Saturday you will get to see the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends on the field. Possibly the most anticipating moment of the combine will be seeing if Kyler Murray is going to participate in drills and throw, so that will be something to look forward to.
The next day the defensive line and linebackers go through drills. To scouts and GMs, Saturday may be their most exciting day because there are a lot of quality edge players that could go in the first three rounds of the draft. Players like Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Quinnen Williams, and Ed Oliver will be the stars to watch on the defensive line.
The draft is always a great time for super-fans to get an idea of the disappointment they’ll get to feel when their team doesn’t draft their favorite prospect. It’s always interesting to see how much the combine impacts pre-draft drama, especially with an emphasis on the athletic testing. While this process does have huge implications on prospects draft positions, the most important case they have for their future pro career is the film they had put on tape.
Following the combine we will be breaking down the best performers along with The Ball on the 25 Mock Draft 1.0.
