The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine will be in Indianapolis this week. Here is the list of all the events taking place at this year’s combine.

We are in the heart of the NFL offseason. The 2020 NFL Draft in fabulous Las Vegas will be here before you know it. Now that we are a few weeks removed from Super Bowl 54 down in Miami, we turn our attention to the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

The combine is one of the most anticipated events of the NFL offseason. Not only do front office executives and diehard football fans get to watch prospective draft-eligible players sprint in their underwear, but they get to learn a little bit more about these guys. The combine is an opportunity for those in the league and covering it to mingle, as well as interview these coveted prospects.

Here is a rundown of the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine at Indianapolis.

Thursday, Feb. 27

  • Tight ends, quarterbacks, wide receivers (4:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

Friday, Feb. 28

  • Place kickers, special teams, offensive linemen, running backs (4:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

Saturday, Feb. 29

  • Defensive linemen, linebackers (4:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

Sunday, Mar. 1

  • Defensive backs (2:00-7:00 p.m. ET)

The weekly rundown in Indianapolis has become pretty standard at this point. It makes all the sense in the world for the quarterbacks and those in the receiving corps to take part in their activities at Lucas Oil Stadium. The first day is all about the pass and catch.

The second day of the combine is a strange allotment of football talent. While it makes sense to have the place kickers and special teamers grouped together, throwing the offensive linemen and running backs in there seems a little jumbled. Then again, this is what we are used to, so this isn’t really a big thing at all.

Day three of the combine prominently features players that starred in college in the defensive front-seven. This makes a ton of sense because these player are often grouped together. Regardless of if a team runs a 3-4 or a 4-3 base defensively, it’s all about seeing where these big defensive bodies can be plugged in and played in any defensive scheme.

Finally, the defensive backs get a day all to themselves. These are the track stars people flock to Indianapolis to see run 40-yard dashes. Having them take care of their business on Sunday afternoon and evening allows for everybody at the combine to quickly get out of town on the first flight home on Monday morning.

Overall, the television spectacle that is the scouting combine will be on display this weekend in the late afternoon and into the night. Interviews with prospective draft picks will be held throughout the week, but this is when you need to tune into the NFL Network for some peak offseason entertainment.
