With the Super Bowl behind them, the NFL is already looking forward to the next big event on their schedule with the release of the official list of players who will participate in the 2019 Scouting Combine on Thursday. A total of 338 names have been invited to Indianapolis for this intensive job interview, with most of the top prospects in the country expected to perform.
The participants should include Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray after he was extended an invitation to attend. However, despite announcing his intention to enter the NFL draft earlier in the year, he has not yet confirmed if he intends pursuing a career in baseball or football. Murray was drafted by the Oakland Athletics with the ninth pick of the 2018 MLB Draft.
Held at Lucas Oil Field from February 26 through March 4, the on-field portions of the event will run from March 1 to March 4 and will be televised live on the NFL Network.
Fittingly, no college team had more players invited to take part this year than the two teams that competed for the National Championship in 2018, with Clemson and Alabama both sending 11 players each.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will have a wide array of scouts and coaches on hand to watch the all the draft prospects go through their paces and to conduct interviews, a group that will include Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert.
