Bryce Young won’t throw at NFL combine
The NFL world will converge on Indianapolis for the 2023 NFL combine this week as the Colts and the rest of the league gather for one of the offseason’s biggest events.
While the on-field testing is what most fans look forward to during this week, teams also get the chance to interview prospects face-to-face. This is a vital part of the draft process, especially for a team like the Colts.
As they begin their search for a potential franchise quarterback, they won’t get to watch Alabama’s Bryce Young go through the throwing drills as he’s reportedly saving his arm for his pro day later in the month on March 23.
Meanwhile, the Colts will get to see Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud sling it, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud will throw at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine, while Alabama QB Bryce Young will wait to do so for his pro day, sources tell me and @TomPelissero.
Young is long past his AC joint injury from this season, but he’ll just do interviews in Indy.

In addition to this, Florida’s Anthony Richardson will run through the drills as well, hoping to raise his draft stock even more with some elite measurables.

The testing and measurables will matter for the Colts, but the interviews may hold more weight at this point in the offseason. It’s far too early in the process to have complete draft grades on these prospects, but the interviews will play a major role.
We detailed the list of prospects and schedule for the combine upcoming this week.
This should be a wild time over the next two months as we debate between the quarterback prospects and whether the Colts will trade up to the No. 1 overall pick with the Chicago Bears.
But we won’t see Young do much throughout the combine this week other than possibly weigh in.
