The 2023 NFL Combine kicks off the on-field workouts on Thursday, March 2, and will run through Sunday, March 5, in Indianapolis. The first set of positions to work out will interest Chicago Bears fans, as defensive linemen and linebackers (including edge defenders) will be showcased in prime time on Thursday night.
The NFL Network will cover most of the on-field work. Here’s this year’s NFL Combine television and streaming schedule:
- Thursday, March 2 (beginning at 3 pm ET): Defensive Linemen and Linebackers
- Friday, March 3 (beginning at 3 pm ET): Defensive Backs and Special Teams
- Saturday, March 4 (beginning at 1 pm ET): Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, and Tight Ends
- Sunday, March 5 (beginning at 1 pm ET): Running Backs and Offensive Linemen
NFL+ will provide live coverage of on-field positional drills, streaming Thursday at 3:30 PM ET, Friday at 4:00 PM ET, Saturday at 2:00 PM ET, and Sunday at 1:30 PM ET.
A total of 319 players were invited to the 2023 NFL Combine, including 83 from the SEC, 63 from the Big Ten, 40 from the ACC, 39 from the Big 12, and 31 from the Pac-12.
The Chicago Bears currently hold the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, but the expectation is that GM Ryan Poles will engage in trade talks this week and eventually trade out of the top selection if the price is right.
If the Bears trade down to the bottom portion of the top 10, the team’s focus will shift to the offensive line and possibly wide receiver.
We’ll have a complete recap of the top performers and best fits for the Chicago Bears after the 2023 NFL Combine concludes.
