The 2020 NFL Combine is officially underway in Indianapolis, Indiana. Quarterbacks, tight ends, and wide receivers arrived in town on Sunday, February 23rd and are in full swing with team interviews already underway, and measurements taking place on Monday. Special teams players, offensive linemen, and running backs arrive on Monday to begin their process. Defensive linemen and linebackers arrive on Tuesday, and defensive backs arrive on Wednesday.

The whole week is important for the 300+ participants, but viewers of the Combine will be looking at a couple different parts of the week. Draft media will be tracking measurements and the weigh-in process, and then they along with fans will be watching the on-field workouts later in the week. The 40-yard dash does not tell us a whole lot given that it takes place in shirt and shorts, but that does not stop it from being a highly watched event.

The 40 and other such workouts do offer some insight into a player, but the position-specific drills are a little more interesting for considering a player’s worth. Most players will have a pro day in March or April to show off what they can do, but that is pre-planned and with a certain comfort level in place. Position drills at the Combine put players in slightly more unfamiliar situations. They know what the drills are, but it’s not quite at the comfort level they’ll get at their home field.

NFL Network will be covering the Combine all week, but the on-field workouts is when the TV coverage picks up. We’ll see some of the bench press on its own, but the primary television coverage starts Thursday when quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends hit the field. NFL Network will be airing coverage from 4-11 p.m. each day from there, and then 2-7 p.m. on Sunday.
