NFL Scouting Combine 2015 - Player Workout Schedule

NFL Scouting Combine 2015
NFL Combine 2015 - Feb. 17-23, 2015 - Lucas Stadium, Indianapolis, In

This week over three hundred of the very best college football players will participate in the NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) 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. This intense, six-day job interview is an exciting time for the athletes and a vital step in achieving their dreams of playing in the NFL. The NFL Network will televise the complete NFL Combine weeklong event that consists of four days of workouts.

How are players selected for the NFL Combine?
NFL Combine participants are determined each year by a Selection Committee. The Directors of both National and BLESTO scouting services, which combined represent 25 NFL teams, are joined by members of various NFL player personnel departments to form the committee. The participating NFL executives can rotate on a yearly basis, and remain anonymous. All eligible players are reviewed and voted on by the committee members. Each athlete receiving the necessary number of votes, by position, is then extended an invitation. While it is not a perfect science, the goal of the committee is to invite every player that will be drafted in the upcoming NFL Draft.

2015 Schedule reflect a new day pattern, as the event will shift 1 day earlier than the historical pattern.
