The NFL Scouting Combine begins February 23rd at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. While lots of people like to sound 'self-important by saying events like the Combine 'don't mean anything' because who truly cares about a guy's vertical leap or his 40 time, the reality is the Scouting Combine is THE most important event for potential NFL draft picks other than the draft itself.
Bomb at the Combine, and it could cost you millions.
A list of Combine invites is available at SB Nation Indiana. Several Indiana area programs, along with the staple programs of the Big Ten, are well represented.
