2019 NFL Draft – Pro Day Schedule

2019 NFL Draft – Pro Day Schedule

On the eve of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, the Pro Day schedule was announced and begins the day after the week long combine in Indianapolis. The process for the 2019 NFL Draft continues up to the event on April 25th thru the 27th. Coaches, personal men and scouts turn their attention to the NFL Combine starting Tuesday Feb 26th thru March 4th with the pro day workouts starting the following week. The Pro Days are not as comprehensive as the NFL Combine, though they address the important events and update the vital medical information and rehab process. NFL teams provide key decision-makers to most of these events as the critical final part of the scouting process.

This year’s pro days are listed below by date. Some schools will book a 2nd Pro Day usually in April if they have injured players.

QB Kyler Murray Faces Important NFL Combine 2019 Decision

NFL Combine 2019 Announces Invitation List

QB Kyler Murray Faces Important NFL Combine Decision

   Frank Coyle – Head Scout

Former Oklahoma QB Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray was included on the official list of invitees for the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Murray has already declared for the NFL Draft 2019 and he will most likely have to pick between the NFL and MLB where he was first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics. Murray wants to become a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, but needs to accept the invitation and attend the combine. The A’s have already made a big push to convince Murray to pick baseball over football and they still expect him to attend spring training. The reporting date for spring training actually begins before the NFL Combine on Feb. 15. Murray is at the crossroads and will either miss critical time in spring training for the A’s or bypass the NFL Combine workout in early March which would create a major conflict of dates for any two sport participation. He is expected to announce a decision related to the NFL Combine soon, though he still insists he wants to play both sports. That has never proven successful for any prospect especially with QB ambitions and his delay beyond this winter could actually hurt his career potential in either sport.

The NFL released a list of 338 players who will attend the NFL Scouting Combine which gets underway in Indianapolis on February 26th. The list includes extensive players from the Power Five Conferences with 261 of the 338 invitations going to prospects from those schools.

 Mississippi State DT Jeffrey Simmons and Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams were not invited to the event after personal conduct rules infractions. Simmons is considered an early first round prospect while Williams is graded as solid early middle round player.

NFL 2018 Scouting Combine Starts – Player Schedule

The NFL Scouting Combine – February 27 – March 5, 2018

The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is here with the early part of the process underway with 336 draft-eligible players in attendance. This has become an annual event in Indianapolis, where they will go through the gauntlet of team and media interviews, physical and medical testing, and more. The results usually have a huge impact on their status for the upcoming NFL Draft.

On this list are all of the top prospects in the draft, as well as many players who will inevitably go undrafted. After all, the NFL Draft has just 256 selections, and there will be additional players who are selected despite not being invited to Indy.

NFL 2018 Scouting Combine

The best college football players are invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year 336 players will show up for extensive testing over a week as a critical part of the scouting progress for the NFL Draft. Top NFL 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, four-day job interview is an exciting time for the athletes and a vital step in achieving their dreams of playing in the NFL.

With increasing interest in the NFL draft, the scouting combine has grown in scope and significance, allowing personnel directors to evaluate upcoming prospects in a standardized setting. Its origins have evolved from the National, BLESTO and Quadra Scouting organizations in 1977 to the media event it has become today.

The NFL Combine 2018 features the national champion Alabama who has the biggest group, with 14 players invited. They are followed by Ohio St (11), Georgia and LSU (10), Florida St and Miami (9) with Penn St (8), Washington (7) and Texas (6) and Oklahoma (6) each. On average, there are 110 NFL Combine players who will go undrafted while on average, 35 non-invited NFL Combine players will be drafted in April.

Athletes attend by invitation only. An athlete’s performance during the NFL Combine can affect their draft status and salary, and their career. The NFL Draft has popularized the term “workout warrior”, whereby an athlete’s “draft stock” is increased based on superior measurable qualities such as size, speed, and strength, despite having an average or sub-par college career.

How are players selected for the NFL Combine?
Participants are determined annually by a Selection Committee. The Directors of both National and BLESTO scouting services, which combined represent twenty-five 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 ensuing NFL Draft.

Tests/ Evaluations include:
40-yard dash
Bench press (225 lbs. repetitions)
Vertical jump
Broad jump
20-yard shuttle
3 cone drill
60-yard shuttle
Position-specific drills

Interviews – each team is allowed 60 interviews in 15-minute intervals
Physical measurements
