NFL Combine 2023

NFL Combine 2023

February 27 – March 6 – NFL Scouting Combine (Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, In)

Draft Insiders’ will have a Free NFL Combine Report for Subscribers this week

The 2023 NFL Scouting Combine begins on Monday, February 27th with team interviews, physicals, medical exams and media interviews. The athletic testing and field drills get underway on Thursday, March 2nd. The events will once again take place at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis. Television coverage can be found on the NFL Network. DraftInsiders.com will have scouts at the NFL Combine and provide scouting insights for the Draft Yearbook and exclusive emails to Full subscribers.

Quarterbacks is a projected strong class and will be a focus of the week, though top prospect Bryce Young will only participate in exams and interviews. He has stated he is fully recovered from his AC joint injury and will do a full workout at the Alabama Pro Day this spring. Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud, Kentucky’s Will Levis and Florida’s Anthony Richardson will throw at the combine on Saturday March 4th. Most QBs usually participate in their Pro days from a throwing perspective which leaves a lasting and sometimes deceptive view of a players’ pro potential.

The workout part of the NFL Combines begins Thursday with the defensive front seven players on center stage. The defense completes the workout portion on Friday with the deep defensive back class the participants. On Saturday, the wide receivers and tight ends join the QBs for a long day on drills and many of the top selections on display. The workouts conclude on Sunday with the running backs and the huge offensive line group completing the week-long events.

2023 NFL Scouting Combine Workout Schedule

Thursday – 3/2/23: Edge Rushers, Defensive Line and Linebackers
Friday – 3/3/23: Cornerbacks and Safeties
Saturday – 3/4/23: Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

   Yulman Stadium, Tulane University, New Orleans, La

The HBCU Legacy Bowl is a postseason HBCU football All-Star game, highlighting the top draft-eligible prospects from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The HBCU Legacy Bowl began in 2022 and is presented yearly by the Black College Football Hall of Fame. In 2023, the HBCU Legacy Bowl partnered with the NFL to host the HBCU Combine ahead of the game. The Combine occurred earlier this week with many of the players in this game.

The two HBCU Legacy Bowl teams are Team Gaither and Team Robinson, named after legendary HBCU head coaches Jake Gaither (Florida A&M) and Eddie Robinson (Grambling St.). Team Gaither will be led by co-head coaches Richard Hayes Jr. (Fayetteville St.) and Trei Oliver (North Carolina Central). Team Robinson will be led by co-head coaches Chennis Berry (Benedict College) and Eric Dooley (Southern University).

The HBCU Legacy Bowl selected Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and former Saints left tackle Terron Armstead as Honorary Captains for this year’s event.

Winston and Armstead are founding partners with the HBCU Legacy Bowl and other NFL players, such as NFL MVP and Super Bowl LVII champion Patrick Mahomes, who was the event’s inaugural honorary captain.

The second HBCU Legacy Bowl will showcase prospects hoping to earn a roster spot in the NFL, CFL, USFL, XFL, or other professional leagues. The event will be held at Tulane University’s Yulman Stadium at 3:00 pm CT on Feb. 25. The NFL Network will broadcast the contest with Steve Wyche (play-by-play) and Charles Davis (color analyst) in the booth.

Hail to the Chiefs – Win their 2nd Super Bowl Title in Four Years

Hail to the Chiefs – Win their 2nd Super Bowl Title in Four Years
Chiefs Edge Eagles in Dramatic Finish to Super Bowl LVII

 QB Patrick Mahomes Wins MVP Award with classic 2nd half comeback. First NFL player to win both the SB MVP and season MVP since the Rams’ Kirk Warner.  

It was the Chiefs 3rd SB title with HC Andy Reid and QB Mahomes winning the last two championships over the past four years as a HC/QB combo. Mahomes was a brilliant over the 2nd half with the Chiefs ultimately winning on a last second FG breaking a 35-35 tie. It was a 62 yard drive which ended with a 27 FG by Harrison Butker.

The Chiefs trailed at halftime 24-14 and used the 2nd half kickoff  to springboard behind Mahomes to a TD on his way to directing an impressive late performance on an injured ankle. He directed three 2nd half TDs that pressured the Eagles and tied the game late. The Chiefs defense came up strong over the 4th quarter setting up the last second FG.

Chiefs have the core talent to compete for the Super Bowl annually which probably keeps HC Andy Reid in Kansas City for a few more seasons.

Senior Bowl 2023 All-Star Game

Senior Bowl 2023 All-Star Game

    Weigh-in Jan. 30th – Practices – Jan 31-Feb. 2 – Game Sat, Feb. 4, – Mobile, Al

The National team defeated the American team, 27-10, in the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl on Saturday at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama.

In the 74th annual premier all-star contest, the game capped off a week-long job interview, including a weigh-in and three days of practices, for over 100 prospects for the 2023 NFL Draft. They were mainly comprised of top senior and 4th year junior eligible prospects who showcased their talent in front of hundreds of scouts and personnel men. Unfortunately, over 30 prospects opted out of the Senior Bowl with the majority of the players not injured.

QB Jake Haener of Fresno State won the MVP award off a fine performance directing the National team to a victory. He connected with wideout Michael Wilson of Stanford on a deep TD in a contest with limited big plays. Runner Evan Hull of Northwestern shined in the ground game, displaying both quickness and power to move the chains.
