The NFL scout combination has notoriously been held in Indianapolis since 1987, but by the year 2022, it’s on the rise.
While the NFL owners’ meetings are underway, the league announced Tuesday that while the annual event will remain in Indianapolis for at least another year, Los Angeles and Dallas are two other cities bidding to host the composite showcase.
As SoFi Stadium is one of the new state-of-the-art facilities the league has to offer, and the NFL Media Group is moving their brand new headquarters next to the Rams’ breathtaking venue, the idea of hosting the NFL Combine in Los Angeles looks like to be a very reasonable destination.
The league made the NFL Combine subject to bids from 2023-2028. However, it has not yet been determined when the winning 2023 bid will be announced.
In total, the combine takes in 300 NFL drafts through a four-day affair, taking the pulse of how each customer checks out medically, physically and mentally.
Players will undergo a round of interviews with teams and NFL media in addition to taking the field, where they will be tested in doing standard football drills, with 40-yard line and others.
The combine is generally kept in late February to early March. Last year, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event switched to a virtual format for interviews, while all personal training was returned to be held on their college pro day.
