Packers: Players to watch during the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine
With the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine about a week away, here are some players Packers fans should keep an eye on.
The NFL Scouting Combine provides scouts and fans with a closer look at players entering this year’s NFL Draft. The Green Bay Packers will enter the draft with a total of 10 draft picks. That could change depending on whether they trade up or down in the draft.
Oftentimes, fans know the names of players who are drafted in the top two or three rounds. After that, the draft picks up and names are being announced left and right and most likely, a lot of those names are new to Packer fans. Watching the Combine can be confusing too. There are a lot of players on the field going through the drills, so keeping track of players can get tough.
With a little prep before the Combine, we can try to organize some players the Packers may be interested in, or players you may want the Packers to take in the upcoming draft. The NFL Combine itself lasts over a week, from February 23 to March 1, but a good chunk of that is actually registration, medical evaluations and interviews with the teams. Things we don’t get to see on TV.
The on-field work starts with the tight ends, quarterbacks, and wideouts on Thursday, Feb. 27 and finishes with the defensive backs on Sunday, March 1. Here is the complete on-field schedule with times. Unfortunately for a lot of fans, the Combine is exclusively on NFL Network, so if you don’t have the channel, you won’t be able to watch. But don’t worry, they usually have live trackers set up online so you can see players’ 40 times, bench press reps, etc.
Let’s go through day-by-day and highlight a few players the Packers could look into when it is their turn to pick, starting with the TE, QB, and WO (wideout) group.
