The NFL will conduct eight Regional Combines at locations across the country beginning on January 28, 2012 in Los Angeles, California, the league announced today.
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."
NFL Regional Combines are conducted specifically for the following players:
• Players eligible for the 2012 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
The Combines are held in NFL club facilities with the exception of Los Angeles. Players are tested and evaluated by experienced NFL scouting personnel, and measurements and combine results are compiled and entered into a database available to all 32 NFL clubs. Players also have the ability to email their results to anyone they wish.
Players that attend an NFL Regional Combine may be invited to attend the NFL Super Regional Combine which will be held at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on March 30-31, 2012. Players invited to the Super Regional will have the opportunity to work out and showcase their talents in front of current NFL team scouts and player personnel directors. Players must attend an NFL Regional Combine in order to become eligible for invitation to the NFL Super Regional Combine.
