Why Is the NFL Combine in Indianapolis This Year?

The Combine is located in Indianapolis for another year for two major reasons: its central location and domed stadium. However, with the recent success of the NFL draft and its rotating cities, the Combine has been opened up to a bidding system from cities across the nation.

Whether the Combine remains in the city of Indianapolis is still to be determined. But for one last season — at least — it remains in Indianapolis.

Draft Prospects To Keep an Eye On

The 2023 NFL Draft is full of headlining prospects, including Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr. and Georgia’s Jalen Carter. As each are expected to interview and meet with the media at the Combine, it is still up in the air as to whether or not both will participate in any events at all.

With that in mind, the most important prospects to keep an eye on are those that can improve their draft position with inspiring performances. Those players are individuals coming off injuries or with shortened seasons that need to prove their healthy.

Players like Pitt’s Carter Warren, who made a surprise appearance at the Shrine Bowl earlier this year, can continue to elevate his draft stock with an impressive workout. Similarly, BYU WR Puka Nacua can further his case to be drafted by performing well as many believe he will.

Nacua was terrific during Day 1 of the Senior Bowl, and another great performance in Indianapolis will rise his stock.

Other Players To Watch

  • Devon Achane, RB, Texas A&M
  • Julius Brents, CB, Kansas State
  • Tyjae Spears. RB, Tulane
  • Jacob Copeland, WR, Maryland
  • Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
  • Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State
  • Riley Moss, CB, Iowa
  • Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor
  • Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State
