NFL Combine could be canceled due to COVID-19

Unfortunately for 2021 draft prospects, one of the biggest events on the NFL calendar is in danger of being canceled.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL Combine, where teams evaluate draft prospects in Indianapolis every year, could be dropped due to COVID-19. The league is expected to decide this week whether to cancel the event, have a smaller version or use regional combines, per the report. 

The combine is currently set to take place after the Super Bowl in February, but Schefter says the league could push it to April in hopes the coronavirus pandemic will be more under control at that point. 

This year's combine is set to feature Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Mac Jones, Zach Wilson, Penei Sewell, Ja'Marr Chase, DeVonta Smith and Kyle Pitts, among many others. 

According to BetOnline.ag, Lawrence has the best odds to be selected with the first overall pick at -3000. Fields has the second-best odds at +500 while Sewell is third at +1600.
