When is the NFL combine? Dates, Location, Schedule

The further we get from Penn State’s 2023 season finale in the Peach Bowl, the more our attentions turn to the Nittany Lions who are entering the NFL draft. There’s nothing like watching Micah Parson and Saquon Barkley dominate on Sundays and this season, a whole new crop of players from James Franklin’s program will disperse across the league. 

Before the draft, the players must undergo an intense, competitive, and very public job interview at the NFL Draft combine. Most of the draft-eligible players will descend upon Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis from February 29 to March 3 to meet with teams, and showcase their physical traits in position-specific workouts, the bench press, shuttle drill, and most excitingly the 40-yard dash. 

Fans who want to catch a glimpse of their favorite Nittany Lions from years past will be able to watch on NFL Network from Thursday, February 29 through Sunday, March 3.
