The 2023 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis marches on, and the weekend is really the main event when talking on-field drills. Quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends take center stage on Saturday, while the offensive linemen and running backs wrap up the drills on Sunday. There will be plenty of focusing on Anthony Richardson, C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young, and Will Levis, as well as Jordan Addison, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Dalton Kincaid, and a host of others at their respective positions.
Just for some housekeeping: I wrote earlier in the week that we were scheduled to have our own John Gilbert on-site at the combine, but that was unfortunately nixed at the last minute due to some unforeseen circumstances. The good news is Gilbert will still be writing and riling up the commenter base.
NFL Network and the NFL+ streaming service have live combine coverage. For those who don’t want to watch and just want to follow along with the results, the 2023 NFL Combine Results Tracker may be accessed here.

Anthony Richardson is an athletic marvel
Anthony Richardson just set a combine record for quarterbacks with a 40.5” vertical with this… pic.twitter.com/68muNURNwq— StaceyDales (@StaceyDales) March 4, 2023

29" vertical (2nd percentile)
108" broad (32nd perentile)
Official 40-times of notable wide receivers
Jordan Addison’s 40-time is not blazing
Jordan Addison with an official 4.49 forty, which is 39th percentile. Adjusting for weight, 3rd percentile. His 10-yard split is right at 50th percentile, so initial burst is fine compared to long speed.— Hayden Winks (@HaydenWinks) March 4, 2023
Of note, raw 40 time is just as correlated as weight-adjusted 40 time at WR
Measurements on Michael Mayer aka Baby Gronk

Jaxon Smith-Njigba’s 3-cone time is fantastic
Zack Kuntz is tall and he can jump
