March Is Here!
An NFL Draft Podcast
Super Bowl LVII has come and gone, with the Kansas City Chiefs hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in four seasons after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in a thriller at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
So … now what? Well, the 2023 offseason will kick into high gear. There’s free agency, along with a trade market that could be headlined by several big-name quarterbacks. Then comes the 2023 NFL Draft, perhaps the biggest event of the year in terms of foundational team-building.

The full schedule is below:
The 2023 NFL combine will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the Indianapolis Colts. The event has been held in Indianapolis since 1987 and will continue to be held there through at least 2024.
After that, however, the location could change. For the first time ever, the combine was put out for bid, similar to the process of other league events like the NFL Draft and the Super Bowl. But at the NFL Spring League Meeting in May, the owners voted to keep the combine in Indianapolis for at least 2023 and 2024.
319 of college football‘s top prospects were invited to the NFL Scouting Combine this year. To see the full list, click here.
