NFL Combine 2023 Guide: Schedule, TV Channel & How To Watch
While the 2022 NFL season has concluded, that doesn’t mean that football entirely vacates the headlines. After all, the XFL got off to a great start this past weekend and NFL free agency is now less than a month away. If that isn’t enough to hold you over, the 2023 NFL Draft takes place on April 27, a month after free agency begins.
But before we can get to all of the offseason drama, we first have to get through the 2023 NFL Combine. At this event, players at all position groups will be scouted and judged on their performance in a variety of categories and exercises. Here’s a look at when the 2023 NFL Combine will take place, plus a primer on how to watch it.
