The NFL Scouting Combine opens its doors for the 29th time on Wednesday in Indianapolis, offering teams the chance to obtain all of the information they could ever want on the top draft prospects in this year's draft class.
While workouts won't take place on day one, teams and scouts are offered a chance to get to know the players in 15-minute interviews that are scheduled for Wednesday night. Until then, players will register and undergo medical examinations before being debriefed on the events of the Combine on Wednesday afternoon.
Take a look at the official schedule of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine (via SB Nation):
Day one: The players will be traveling to Indianapolis and going through registration once they arrive. There will be some medical things on that first day -- pre-workout exams and x-rays -- before they move into orientation explaining what the week is all about. After that there will be interviews with various NFL teams who want to speak with that particular player.
Day two: There will be physical measurements of the players, some exams, media time, psych tests and then more interviews with NFL teams.
Day three: The third day includes a meeting with the NFLPA, which should be somewhat interesting because there were rumors that the union was thinking about boycotting the Combine. Obviously that's not the case now but that will be something that's raised during the media session. After that, there will be more interviews with NFL teams.
Day four: There will be workouts on this day -- timing, stations and skill drills -- and then players will prepare to depart Indy.
In addition, Connecticut offensive lineman Zachary Hurd, linebackers Gregory Lloyd, Scott Lutrus and Lawrence Wilson, fullback Anthony Sherman and running back Jordan Todman were all invited to the Combine.
