NFL to host regional combine for draft prospects in Miami
The NFL will stage a regional combine event beyond the upcoming national scouting combine in Indianapolis. They did this in Houston in 2017. Here is a link to our coverage of that event.
The league’s combine series will have a regional invitational and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) combine from March 27-29 at the Miami Dolphins’ Baptist Health Training Facility.
Attendees will include draft-eligible athletes who were not invited to the national combine that begins later this month.
Vikings Pro Bowl wide receiver Adam Thielen and fullback C.J. Ham, along with Broncos kicker Brandon McManus, Rams four-time All-Pro punter Johnny Hekker, and Chiefs center Austin Reiter attended the regional combine during their draft year.
Nearly 10 percent of all players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame attended HBCUs. In 2019, there were 32 players from HBCU programs on NFL rosters.
Prospects for the NFL’s 2020 international pathway program will participate in the regional combine.
Started in 2017, the program provides elite international athletes the opportunity to compete at the NFL level, improve their skills, and perhaps earn a spot on an NFL roster.
Nine athletes from eight countries will compete for a spot in the 2020 pathway program.
