INDIANAPOLIS — The NFL Combine is getting underway this week in Indianapolis, and this year there are some big changes.

The top college talent will run 16 new position-specific drills and will eliminate ten old ones. The league says it is also moving most of the on-field exercises to primetime to get more of an audience.

Drills start with the quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thursday.

Running backs, offensive line, and special teams go Friday, followed by defensive players on Saturday.
