Time for the at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine to take off. We’ve got out first on-field workouts as the defensive backs arrive today making today the only day that all four prospect groupings are in attendance.

2018 NFL Scouting Combine - Day 4 Schedule

Group Status
Group Status
Group 1 (PK, ST, OL), Group 2 (OL), Group 3 (RB) On-Field Workout (timing, stations, drills) | Departure from Indianapolis
Group 4 (QB, WO), Group 5 (QB, WO), Group 6 (TE) Psychological Testing | NFLPA Meeting | Media | Bench Press | Interviews
Group 7 (DL), Group 8 (DL), Group 9 (LB) Measurements | Medical Examinations | Overflow Testing | Interviews
Group 10 (DB), Group 11 (DB) Registration | Hospital Pre-Exam & X-rays | Overflow Testing | Orientation | Interviews

So while the NFL Network will pick up live coverage about an hour from me writing this, bear in mind as we start today...that 40-yard times really aren’t that important. And honestly, they’re not even as important as the two times within that station: the 20-yard and 10-yard splits. No, the most important parts of the combine are medical evaluations and the private sessions teams get to have with prospects. Oh, and the fact you’ve crammed all 32 teams’ coaching staffs and front offices within the same building making it possible to share intel, offer offseason insights and even just talk football.

But of course...it’s the combine. And once dudes start running, well, we all know the inescapable grasp of a flashy chyron, Rich Eisen’s voice and the entire package.

So let’s get running!
