The CFL Combine is a three-day program in which athletes from Canadian universities and Canadians in the NCAA are scouted by general managers, coaches and scouts from the CFL.
This will be the seventh year in a row that the CFL will have three regional combines ahead of the main Combine.
For draft eligible players this can be huge boost. Because if you are successful at a regional combine you can earn a spot at the national event.
Even players already likely to be drafted can improve their stock. A good performance here can move them up the draft boards.
Over that time there have been regional combines in Montreal, Toronto and Western Canada in the week running up to the national combine.
The regional combines provide a wider range of athletes with the opportunity to be evaluated by CFL personnel. Players are then selected from these combines to participate in the National Combine to compete with athletes already invited there.
The CFL even helpfully highlights players you might want to watch out for.
So if you are feeling withdrawal symptoms for shuttle drills, vertical leaps and the like you know where to head!
