Earlier this week, the NFL Scouting Combine actually began. A lot of it is stuff the general public or casual fan isn’t really interested in. So Friday marks the day when the “fun” stuff starts.
But here’s the process run-down.
The first wave (known as Group 1) of the 338 invitees starting orientation on Tuesday. They got themselves registered; and then got their hospital pre-exam and x-rays out of the way.
Group 2 arrived on Wednesday and started their registration process, while Group 1 was having their measurements taken; taking their medical exams, and beginning the interview process.
Wednesday is also the day when NFL GM’s and HC’s talk with the media.
