It's officially draft season, and the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine presented by NOBULL provides one of the best opportunities for teams to evaluate prospects prior to the 2024 NFL Draft, which will take place April 25-27 in Detroit.

This year's combine features a number of intriguing talents vying to be the No.1 pick in the draft, currently held by the Chicago Bears.

Starting on Thursday, Feb. 29, NFL stars of the next generation take the field in Indianapolis to showcase their skills in front of general managers, coaches, scouts and player evaluators.

Over 300 players have been invited to participate this year and, in an exciting change in format, three skill position groups (quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs) will compete on the same day: Saturday, March 2.
