It’s officially 2023 NFL Combine week, as the next wave of NFL players have already started to descend upon Indianapolis for one of the most important weeks of their professional lives. Even though it seems like more and more players opt out of the on-field drills, this week still holds massive importance for these draft prospects as they meet individually with teams, provide critical medical information, and flash their personalities to the media.

The NFL keeps tweaking the Combine schedule, both to accommodate the players the best, while also trying to make this a television event worth watching. This year, the main difference is that they have moved all the skill position players’ on-field drills to the weekend, as that’s what people enjoy watching the most.

But there have been other little adjustments here and there, so here’s a full outlook of the 2023 NFL Combine schedule, including when and where you can watch.

Note: If I’m being completely honest, there’s not much information for fans to consume until Wednesday, when the players start meeting with the media. For Detroit Lions fans, Wednesday is also when GM Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell will speak to the media. On-field drills—and NFL Network’s live coverage of the event—start on Thursday.
