The NFL will conduct 10 Regional Combines beginning on January 24-25, 2013 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the league announced today.
There will also be an invitation only Super Regional Combine in Dallas on April 7-8.
NFL Regional Combines serve as a supplement to the NFL’s National Scouting Combine and provide an opportunity for players to display their skills before veteran NFL talent evaluators.
“The NFL Regional Combines program provides players – who may not have had the chance before – the opportunity to work out for NFL personnel executives,” says NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson. “It allows all 32 clubs a chance to further evaluate future prospects.
The following players are eligible to attend the Regional Scouting Combine
• Players eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft but not attending the National Scouting Combine
• Players with college playing experience who want to gauge their pro potential
• Players with some pro playing experience but who have been out of the game for a period of time
Standouts at NFL Regional Combines will be invited to attend the NFL Super Regional Combine, which will be held at Cowboys Stadium on April 7-8. At the Super Regional, players will have an additional opportunity to work out and showcase their talents in front of current NFL team scouts and player personnel directors.
