New, comments

Get ready for next week’s week-long event with a primer and a full breakdown of the schedule.

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The first group of players will report for the 2018 edition of the NFL Scouting Combine gets underway in exactly seven days, so here is a quick primer for you for the annual event.

Previously, the Combine was one of just two or three public media appearances that the Green Bay Packers’ general manager would make. Ted Thompson famously despised talking to the media, but with the transition to Brian Gutekunst, Packers fans can expect to hear from the man in charge of personnel decisions much more frequently. This year’s Combine will be the first such opportunity since his introductory press conference in January. Gutekunst will speak at 11:00 AM Eastern Time on Wednesday.

Also appearing in front of the media will be head coach Mike McCarthy, who will also talk on Wednesday; his presser is scheduled for 2 PM Eastern.

Of course, the big draw for fans is the on-field workouts, which begin in earnest on Friday, March 2nd with the offensive linemen and running backs (with no offense intended towards special teams players, who will work out on March 1st). Those workouts will, as always, be held on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, with player media interviews and various fan events being held at the Indianapolis Convention Center across the street.

APC’s Tex Western will be live in Indianapolis covering media days once again, so stay tuned for live updates from the Combine each day.

Finally, NFL Network will be on hand to cover on-field workouts starting Friday, March 2nd and running through Monday, March 5th. Click here for a link to the broadcast details from NFL Network.
