About NFL Combine 2024

A bevy of top executives, coaching staff, player personnel department members, and medical personnel representing all 32 NFL teams will be at the event to evaluate the nation’s top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft.


An intense, four-day job interview, the period is an exciting time for athletes and a crucial step in achieving their dreams of playing in the NFL. The NFL Scouting Combine for the year 2024 will be held between February 26 - March 4, 2024. This year’s iteration sees a few quarterbacks in the mix with USC Trojan's star signal-caller Caleb Williams widely projected to be the first overall pick. Other notable players on the radar include quarterbacks Drake Maye and Jayden Daniels, wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., and Malik Nabers as well as a few offensive tackles.


On the defensive end, the first round could see edge rushers such as Dallas Turner, Jared Verse, and Laiatu Latu as well as cornerbacks like Cooper DeJean, Nate Wiggins, and Terron Arnold amongst many more.



What is the NFL Combine?

The NFL Draft Combine is a near-week-long event that takes place after the NFL season is over. This event is for collegiate football players who are looking to take the next step in their careers as football players and look to enter the upcoming NFL Draft. The purpose of the NFL Combine is to test collegiate athletes on their physical as well as mental abilities to get a general gist of how they would fare once drafted into the professional league.


The NFL Combine is an invite-only event meaning not all college football players get the chance to perform in front of scouts, experts, team owners, and coaching staff. While scouts are continuously monitoring college players year after year, the NFL Draft Combine provides an added opportunity for players to showcase their abilities and interact with various team personnel such as coaches, and owners. As a result, the NFL Combine goes a long way in deciding where a player may get drafted which in turn affects his draft status and salary when he joins the NFL.

How are players selected for the NFL Combine?

The NFL has a player selection committee that selects which players are to be invited each year. The committee takes into account the opinions of all 32 NFL teams as they are provided with a list of all the draft-eligible players. This committee is formed by the Directors of National and BLESTO scouting services who together represent 28 of the 32 NFL teams. They are also joined by other player personnel departments.


The committee then votes on each player on a position-by-position basis and tries to come up with the best possible list of invites. The invites are then sent out according to the highest number of votes in each position to try and bring in the best talent from the upcoming draft class. While the system may not be foolproof, it aims at inviting as many of the top collegiate talents that are entering the draft.


NFL Combine Invites 2024

A total of 321 prospects have been invited to Indianapolis, which is two more than last year’s pool. The invitees are decided by the Player Selection Committee, which comprises directors of both the National and BLESTO scouting services and members of various NFL player personnel departments.


According to the league, each team can provide input on draft-eligible players before the selections are made. There are more prospects than draft picks in April, so for many players, the stakes are extremely high as they try to make their mark on the various teams.
