The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine officially begins today in Indianapolis, Indiana.
With the 2018 NFL Draft two months away, all 32 teams will have their coaching staffs and front offices (or at least members from each) in attendance to work with each other, assess free agent markets, investigate possible deals, set draft stock and of course...evaluate the 336 prospects in attendance this year.
The first of those 336 prospects officially arrive today as special teamers, offensive linemen and running backs will arrive, check in and have some precursory meetings:
2018 NFL Scouting Combine - Day 1 Schedule
|Group 1 (PK, ST, OL), Group 2 (OL), Group 3 (RB)||Registration | Hospital Pre-Exam & X-rays | Overflow Testing | Orientation | Interviews|
So no, it’s not going to be a day of on-field workouts or measurements or a ton of reporting...but it’s the combine nonetheless!
Things heat up tomorrow when Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Sean McVay speaks to the media at 10:30am ET. General Manager Les Snead will hold his availability on Thursday at the same time.
Stay tuned. We’ll have full coverage all through next Monday when the Combine comes to a close.
