A look at the 2017 NFL Combine schedule by position, seeing when each group will be testing.
Though media days have been ongoing, the 2017 NFL Combine is now set to really get underway. Friday marks the start of the positional drills, interviews and the real reason that fans care about the event at all. Between the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump and the various other tests, we’ll see how athletic all of these 2017 NFL Draft prospects are.
Obviously some tests are more important for some positions than they are others. What’s more, the drills for each position may give a better indication than some of the other testing at the NFL Combine. What’s clear, though, is that we will see just how freakishly athletic many of the prospects in the 2017 draft class actually are.
Most football fans know by now the names that you need to keep an eye on at the 2017 NFL Combine. Players like Myles Garrett, Jabrill Peppers, Leonard Fournette, Deshaun Watson and so on will all be under the microscope throughout the weekend. What’s more, they should all put up impressive numbers as the athleticism for this class as a whole is through the roof.
However, you may be asking when these players will be taking the field. As the NFL Combine is scheduled by position groups, that’s what you need to know.
With that in mind, here’s a look at when each position group will be participating at the 2017 NFL Combine:
Day 1 – Friday, March 3: Running Backs, Offensive Linemen, Specialists Day 2 – Saturday, March 4: Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends Day 3 – Sunday, March 5: Defensive Linemen, Linebackers Day 4 – Monday, March 6: Cornerbacks, Safeties
Many times there are days throughout the NFL Combine that feel lesser than others. With Leonard Fournette and company on Friday, the quarterbacks and receivers on Saturday, the likes of Myles Garrett on Sunday, and the highly touted defensive backs on Monday, that’s not the case in 2017. So be sure not to miss any of the action.
