2017 Scouting Combine: Participants and Schedule

Posted Feb 15, 2017

NFL Combine invites 330 hopefuls to Indianapolis beginning Feb. 28 to jockey for spots in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The NFL Scouting Combine has shared the list of 330 draft-eligible players who have been invited to Indianapolis. Check out the entire list here.

The combine, which begins February 28 with the arrival of running backs, offensive linemen and specialists and concludes March 6 with the departure of defensive backs, is a key component in the pre-draft process. Not everyone invited will be drafted, with the April 27-29 draft featuring 253 selections. The Panthers currently hold the eighth overall selection and seven total picks, and they're expected to earn an eighth when 32 compensatory picks are awarded about a month before the draft.

The list of players invited includes nine from national champion Clemson, seven from North Carolina and the first in the history of Charlotte's fledgling football program – defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi.

The first group of prospects will arrive February 28 and be in town for four days. On-field workouts featuring 40-yard dashes and the like begin March 3, the first of four days of live coverage on NFL Network. Most NFL teams' coaches and general managers will meet with the media March 1-2, and the draft prospects will meet with the media March 2-5. Panthers.com will be there for all the interviews.
