Next week, 330 NFL Draft prospects will arrive in Indianapolis to interview with NFL teams, work out in a variety of on-field drills, and go through medical exams at the annual Scouting Combine. The event kicks off on Tuesday, February 28th with the arrival of the first group of players, and runs for seven days through the conclusion of workouts for the fourth and final group.

As is the custom, a player’s schedule is dictated by the position that he plays - or at least the position to which he is assigned. Each position group arrives one day apart, and therefore goes through all drills and events a day apart as well.

For the third straight year, Acme Packing Company will be on site for media availability with players, coaches, and general managers. In the past, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson have spoken on the second day of media availability. For the 2017 Combine, media days are shifted back a day form previous years, running from Thursday through Sunday. Be sure to stay tuned to APC and to our social media accounts throughout those four days for constant updates from Indianapolis.

Here are the player schedules broken down in three ways - first by position group, second by date, and third by TV broadcasts.
