Get These Players on Your Radar
With the start of the National Scouting Combine beginning this Monday on March 9th at Grand Parks Event Center, which is the home of the Indianapolis Colts and their Training Camp. On Monday, Offensive Lineman, Defensive Lineman, Running Backs, and Fullbacks will begin their testing, and we have an exciting crop of players who will be in attendance. With the start of NFL free agency set to begin on March 17th, the NFL Draft in April, and other leagues continuing to be in the middle of player evaluations, there will be continued importance set forth with trying to find the next best players to be on your roster.
For the last 10 years, the National Scouting Combine has worked to provide athletes with an unprecedented opportunity to gain verified, laser-timed numbers in the 40 yard dash, pro agility and 3-cone drill which will dramatically enhance their profile for prospective teams. It’s a unique concept that other companies have tried to emulate, but outside of the NFL Combine, we’re the second longest running Combine.
Our Combine will be held for upcoming 2021 NFL Draft prospects and Free Agents. This exclusive event will be conducted by people who are affiliated with the NFL, CFL, and indoor football. Our team of scouts have hand-picked the prospects who will be in attendance, and these players will be ran through all Combine testing drills, which includes the following: 40 yard dash, Pro Agility, 3-Cone Drill, Vertical Jump, Broad Jump, and Bench Press. One drill that separates the National Scouting Combine from other events is our partnership with TRAZER and the comprehensive insights they provide on athletes. TRAZER is partnered with perennial National Championship contending teams, which includes Alabama and Clemson.
The National Scouting Combine will also feature an independent scouting Department that features All22 -The Global Scouting Network and includes former CFL Scout Marcus Adams, Roland Rainey from ESPN Denver, scouting from USA Olympic Teams of Bobsled/Skeleton and Rugby, representatives with Pro Wrestling Affiliations, and the Colorado Raptors Rugby Association. No other business provides their athletes with more opportunities than the National Scouting Combine, and we’re excited to show everyone why they need to be a part of this great event.
