The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many changes across the NFL landscape this year, and that will continue to be the case as the league moves through major events this offseason.

Among them, the NFL Scouting Combine, which will look much different than in years past.

Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated broke down some of the big changes coming to the NFL’s annual job fair for incoming college prospects, which includes regionalized medical checks, more formalized pro days to replace the lost workouts, and plenty of Zoom meetings.
