While the NFL Scouting Combine officially began on Tuesday, today is the first day that the media is on-site and conducting interviews. Players will not be available to the media until Thursday, but two groups of players are now in Indianapolis to begin their initial testing prior to their on-field workouts.
Today, group one (the offensive linemen, running backs, and specialists) move on to their physical measurements and medical exams, while group two (quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends) arrive in Indianapolis.
The big draw today, however, at least from a media perspective, is the availability of numerous NFL head coaches and general managers. The Green Bay Packers’ two top men are speaking today, as GM Ted Thompson takes to the podium at 11:00 AM Eastern and head coach Mike McCarthy speaks at 1:00 PM. Click here for a full breakdown of the coach and GM interview schedule.
