The 2012 NFL Combine officially begins on Wednesday, Feb. 22, when the first wave of athletes is scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis for a week in front of NFL evaluators.

Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers are due in Indianapolis on Thursday. Defensive linemen and linebackers are scheduled to start on Friday, and cornerbacks are last but not least, beginning on Saturday.
Each position begins Day 1 on the day of arrival in Indianapolis. The four-day schedule follows.
Travel to Indianapolis, registration, hospital pre-exam and X-rays, orientation, interviews
Measurements, medical examinations, media, psychological testing, interviews
NFLPA Meeting, psychological testing, interviews
