NFL Pro Day Schedule: With no Combine in 2021, college workouts take center stage

In a reversal from of 2020, college programs will hold Pro Days this spring with no full Combine taking place.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma Pro Day Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

In 2020, the NFL still held its annual Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. That event took place a few weeks before the spread of COVID-19 truly took hold around the United States, fundamentally changing society as a whole, and football along with it.

The timing of the onset of the pandemic led most college football programs to cancel their annual Pro Days, where NFL prospects would normally have an opportunity to work out in front of and talk with scouts from teams around the league. But 2021 is effectively going to be the opposite — there is no Combine this year, but colleges are holding Pro Days.

The NFL will still conduct medical examinations for many college players, while the team interview processes that typically take place in Indy are being replaced with online videoconferences. Still, the workouts are critical for teams’ evaluation of players’ athletic abilities, and most college programs are expected to make their Pro Day workouts available to scouts (at the very least) to watch remotely.

Hopefully schools publish these videos and workout results publicly for NFL fans to analyze and absorb. Time will tell, but we will get our first taste of the COVID-altered Pro Day process on March 5th, when the University of Kansas kicks off a month-long process.

Here is the full schedule of Pro Days for 2021, which was distributed to media members on Wednesday.
