2013 NFL Combine: Schedule And Preview

The NFL Combine is almost upon us. Don't miss out on any of the action, check out this years schedule of events.

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Navigating the monotonous NFL offseason is like traversing the sandy, desert wastelands of the planet Tatooine. Other than the occasional Tusken Raider attack, there just isn't a whole lot going on (if you don't understand the last two references, you may want to revert back to your bomb shelter that you've been living in for the past three decades).

Thankfully, the annual NFL Scouting Combine is rapidly approaching, allowing us to momentarily escape the football doldrums and return to our favorite pastime. Soon, draft hopefuls will descend upon Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium to be measured, worked-out, and evaluated by all 32 NFL clubs. It's like one big job interview, and we get live, televised access to all of it.

This year, the festivities begin on Wednesday February 20th.

As usual, the NFL will be airing all of the workouts on both the NFL Network and on a live stream on NFL.com. With question marks at the running back, linebacker, and safety positions, the final three days of workouts will be the ones to pay close attention to. Whose draft stock will rise? Whose will fall? Just one more week until these questions are answered, Bengals fans. One more week.
