What channel is the NFL Combine on? Times, TV schedule for new primetime broadcasts in 2020

Good news and bad news regarding the TV channel for the 2020 NFL Combine in Indianapolis. The entirety of the on-field workout portion of the annual NFL Draft scouting event will broadcast live from 4-11 p.m. ET on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, with the last group of workouts scheduled for 2-7 p.m. ET on Sunday. That wall-to-wall coverage is the good news.

The bad news — and it’s only bad news for those who don’t get NFL Network — is only one channel will show the workouts. NFL Network (and NFL Digital Media) will present multi-platform coverage of the NFL Combine for the 16th year in a row.

For the first time ever, though, the NFL Combine schedule will push the on-field workouts into and through prime time, a change that was made to satisfy the league’s perpetual thirst for TV viewers and ratings.

Below is all you need to know regarding how to watch the 2020 NFL Combine, including the TV channel for all four nights of workouts and the complete schedule for the 300-plus NFL Draft prospects participating.

The biggest change to the NFL Combine schedule for 2020 comes in the start times for on-field workouts Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Now the action will extend into and through primetime.

NFL Network, the exclusive TV channel for all on-field drills at the Combine, will present seven straight hours of workout coverage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the network will show all five hours of the last group’s (DB) drills. Host Rich Eisen and analyst/draft expert Daniel Jeremiah will anchor NFL Network’s Combine coverage with additional commentary from Charles Davis and others.

Below is the complete TV schedule for on-field workouts and drills at the 2020 NFL Combine.

The on-field workouts shown on TV, of course, are just the tip of the iceberg that is an NFL prospect’s Combine experience. For many players, the drills are the least relevant portion of the week.

A given prospect’s workout at the Combine comes after he has gone through orientation, interviews, measurements, a medical exam, more interviews, media obligations, more medical exams, a position coach interview, psychological testing, an NFLPA meeting, more interviews, the bench press and more psychological testing. This is technically a job interview, after all.
