NFL_CombineLater this month, over three hundred of the very best college football players will be invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. Top Executives, Coaching Staffs, Player Personnel Departments and Medical Personnel from all 32 NFL teams will be on hand to evaluate the nation’s top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft.  The NFL Scouting Combine will be held February 23 – 29, 2016.


The NFL will conduct five Regional Combines beginning on February 13 in Houston, TX, and concluding on March 12 at the New Orleans Saints Training Complex in New Orleans, LA. NFL Regional Combines, hosted throughout the country, serve as a supplement to the NFL’s National Scouting Combine and provide an opportunity for current draft eligible players to display their skills before veteran NFL talent evaluators.

“Combines have long provided draft eligible players with the forum needed to showcase their skills to NFL teams,” says Director of Football Development MATT BIRK. “I know how important participating in combines was for my NFL career. It is our job at the NFL to provide this opportunity to any college football player that wants to chase his dream of playing in the NFL.”

NFL Regional Combines are conducted specifically for the following players:

  • ​Position players eligible for the 2016 NFL Draft. The Regionals are only open to players who played college football during the 2015 season.

Regional Combines are hosted at NFL facilities. Players are tested and evaluated by experienced NFL scouting personnel, and measurements, combine results and videos are compiled and entered into a database available to all 32 NFL clubs.

This event is part of the NFL Combine Series under the NFL Football Development platform.
