2003 Combine Schedule

TFY takes an early look at the schedule of workouts for players invited to the annual NFL Scouting Combine at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis. This year's event will run from February 18th to the 24th, providing a full 6 days for interviewing, examining, and testing the NFL prospects.

The reasoning behind expanding the process from five days to seven is clear, considering the difficulty in recent years of processing all of the top prospects through the interviews and medical exams that both increase in number and complexity every year, and still squeezing in the gauntlet of workouts.

It was particularly noticeable at last year's Combine that certain highly rated players were opting to forego the workouts at Indianapolis in favor of those held at their school's Pro Day, or choosing to participate in certain workouts at Indianapolis while ignoring others.

The refusal of a few big-name prospects to demonstrate physical skills in NFL Combine tests that are designed to measure those skills is indeed worthy of discussion by the media and fans, although the scouts are probably taking that issue in stride by now.

At the same time, there have always been real-world logistic problems with the five-day agenda of previous NFL Combines, as far as travel and lodging preparations are concerned. As has been the situation the previous two years the TFY Draft Preview will be on hand at the RCA Dome reporting on the events from the combine.

* RB'S are broken up into two groups and workout over two days
