When is the NFL Combine? Dates, schedule for 2024 NFL Draft scouting showcase | Sporting News Australia

The NFL season ended just two weeks ago, but the league is already back in action with the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. Hundreds of prospects will descend on Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis looking to make an impact on NFL teams.

While 321 players are invited to the combine, there are only 256 spots in April’s draft. So players will aim to leave lasting impressions on the 32 NFL front offices.

Prospects will go through medical examinations, interviews and on-field drills to showcase their talents.

The workouts begin Thursday, Feb. 29 and extend through Sunday, March 3. Each day will feature different positions, with the defensive lineman and linebackers kicking it off Thursday.

Here’s all you need to know for the 2024 NFL Combine, including start times and TV schedules.
