2023 NFL Scouting Combine: Schedule, how to watch, top participants, prospect rankings, mock draft core

Super Bowl LVII has come and gone, with the Kansas City Chiefs hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in four seasons after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in a thriller at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

So… now what? Well, the 2023 season will end in high gear. There’s free agency, as well as a trade deal that could include many big-name prospects. Then comes the 2023 NFL Draft, perhaps the biggest event of the year in terms of core team building.

But before that is the NFL Scouting Combine, where hundreds of employees of the scouting department will descend on Indianapolis to evaluate more than 300 of the nation’s top prospects.

When is 2023 assembled? Who are the names to watch? Here’s everything you need to know:

Where is the meeting?

The 2023 NFL combine will be held at Ola Lucas Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the Indianapolis Colts. The event has been held in Indianapolis since 1987 and will continue to be held there until at least 2024.

After that, however, the position may change. For the first time ever, the combine was offered, similar to the process of other major league events such as the NFL Draft and the Super Bowl. But at the NFL’s Spring League Meeting in May, the owners voted to keep the combine in Indianapolis through at least 2023 and 2024.
