For the 14th year, NFL Media provides exclusive multi-platform coverage of the NFL Scouting Combine from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Beginning Wednesday, February 28, NFL Media provides 52 hours of live Combine week coverage, offering the first look at the compelling 2018 NFL Draft class, highlighted by top quarterbacks Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Josh Allen, Heisman Trophy winners Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson, and running back Saquon Barkley.

NFL Media (comprised of NFL Network, NFL.com, and the NFL app) features a 23-man roster of talent to cover the Combine, including NFL Draft experts Mike Mayock, Charles Davis and Daniel Jeremiah. Rich Eisen anchors NFL Network’s coverage of the on-field workouts, joined by Mayock and NFL Network’s team of analysts.

NFL Network’s coverage of the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine features the following technological enhancements:

Simulcam Camera Technology: For the 10th year at the Combine, the Simulcam provides an unparalleled, in-depth comparison and analysis of the position, style, speed and trajectory of competitors through the use of background recognition and camera-matching technology. Simulcam will be a key contributor to NFL Network’s 40-yard dash coverage. Returning this year, NFL Network’s Simulcam technology during 40-yard dash coverage will feature on-screen identifiers to better identify runners from either current or previous years.

NFLN-Focus Camera Technology: A high-speed camera that allows moving targets to stay in the camera frame longer, highlighting the smallest details. It will have a tremendous presence in coverage of the 40-yard dash, both at the start and finish line, and will also be used in other events including the vertical and broad jumps, three-cone and position drills
Cablecam Technology: The Cablecam returns to offer a unique overhead view which gives viewers a new way of following each drill and a more intimate feeling that they are present in Indianapolis.
