All-Star Game Schedule 2022
A full schedule of postseason All-star games return this year after closing down every event except the Senior Bowl Classic last offseason. The Covid 19 virus cancelled a wide range of events, making the scouting process very difficult. The NFL Draft 2021 class will be interesting to evaluate in a few more seasons and seeing if a higher number of early draft selection become busts and more late round sleepers emerge over the first three or four seasons.
Both dates and locations of several events have changed in many cases for the major All-star venues, in addition to several small college All-star events. DraftInsiders.com scouting staff will be at events plus the NFL Combine 2022. Each All-star event will have announcements thru the postseason with player and coaching additions and updates.
