The 2023 NFL Combine is here, which means we’re about to see some fast 40-times, eyebrow-raising bench presses, and a lot of three-cone drill discourse. Draft stock will be reaffirmed, rise, or fall based on what happens over the next several days in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Before we get into the key details I’m excited to announce that Field Gulls will be live at the NFL Combine! Our own John P. Gilbert is headed to Indianapolis as part of the large group of media, so we’re going to have a lot of cool content coming to the site over the next few days. John won’t be there for the Pete Carroll and John Schneider media availability on Tuesday, but he will be present for other stuff when he arrives later in the week.
The NFL Combine runs from Monday, February 27th through Monday, March 6th. Here are some other key dates and facts you must know:
