How to watch the 2022 NFL scouting combine on ESPN

The NFL scouting combine started Monday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

On-field workouts begin at 4 p.m. ET Thursday and continue for three more days and will be broadcast on NFL Network. The event concludes Monday, Mar. 7.


What is the NFL combine and who is invited?

The combine is the best chance for some of the top college football players in the country to show off their skills to NFL general managers, coaches and scouts.

Participation is by invitation only. All 32 teams provide input on draft-eligible prospects, and a Player Selection Committee then reviews and votes on each eligible athlete. The goal is to invite every player who will be selected in the NFL draft, according to the NFL combine rulebook.

On Feb. 9, the NFL released its entire list of 324 invitees.

During the combine, players participate in various evaluations, including drills

NFL mock draft 2022 – Todd McShay’s post-Super Bowl predictions for all 32 first-round picks, including QB landing spots

The 2021 NFL season is over, after the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI on Sunday night. The Rams don’t currently have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft, dealing it away to help land quarterback Matthew Stafford. It will be the sixth straight draft in which they relax on Day 1 — but I think it’s safe to say they’ll be OK with that.

But for 27 teams that do have a first-round selection, it’s time to starting planning ahead and stacking prospect boards.

So it seems like a good time to once again predict the first 32 picks of April’s first round. Who will be the No. 1 pick? How will teams with multiple selections retool, and who will land the top prospects? And where will the quarterbacks go? You likely won’t see teams scrambling to jump into the top five for a

NFL World Reacts To Saturday’s Lamar Jackson News

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on Sunday against Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on Sunday against Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson is set to get paid this offseason.

Jackson, a former NFL MVP, is set to receive his big quarterback contract extension this offseason, barring a surprise in Baltimore.

According to reports, Jackson is expected to earn more than $40 million/annually with his new contract, putting himself among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.

That’s a lot of money for a quarterback, of course, but that’s essentially the going rate for a top-tier player these days.

“His squad lost like 6 straight without him after he had them in the 1 seed a week or two prior. Worth every single penny for them. Man carries that team heavy,” one fan tweeted.

“Deserves every penny. Tired of people ignoring the numbers and acting like he’s not gonna pan out long term. We all know why they’re saying

Appearing on ESPN’s Sportscenter, former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson clarified his allegations against the team.

CLEVELAND — Editor’s note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.

Former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson made headlines this week when he implied on social media that he was financially incentivized to lose games during his time with the team — a claim the team has since denied.

Appearing on ESPN’s “Sportscenter” on Wednesday night, however, the now-Grambling State head coach declined to say that any financial reward he received wasn’t explicit, but rather the result of a four-year plan that didn’t initially prioritize winning.

“The way the team was built, there was no chance to win and win at a high level. You’re in a situation where what you have to do is do the best you can,” Jackson
