The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The week-long event features the best college prospects from across the country, and while the on-field drills always seem to attract the most attention – the 40-yard dash, bench press etc. – the interview portion of the week likely proves to be more beneficial to the 32 clubs in attendance.
Silver and Black Productions will be in Indy for the week; here’s a brief schedule of everything to keep an eye on over the next few days.
Head Coach Jon Gruden and General Manager Mike Mayock Press Conferences
Both Gruden and Mayock will address the media in Indianapolis.
Mayock will get things started Wednesday (2/27) morning, as he’s scheduled to speak at 9:00 a.m. ET. – that’s 6:00 a.m. for those of you in California – and Coach Gruden will speak at the exact same time the following day (2/28).
Each press conference will be streamed live on Raiders.com, as well as all of the team’s other digital properties, so wake up early, make a cup of coffee, and start your day with a little Raiders action.
Prospect availability for the week is broken down by position group; player groups will be available for interviews on the following days:
Thursday, February 28 – Running backs, Offensive Linemen, Select Quarterbacks
Friday, March 1 – Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends, Kickers/Punters.

Silver and Black Productions Coverage
With three first-round picks in this year’s NFL Draft, the Silver and Black Productions crew will be busy all week at Lucas Oil Stadium.
In addition to the usual coverage of everything noteworthy coming out of Indianapolis, the team will produce daily episodes of “Upon Further Review” Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, as well as numerous live segments you can watch on Instagram.
Also, for this year’s Combine, the team’s official Snapchat account will focus on primarily behind-the-scenes content, more specifically on the Silver and Black Productions crew, and everything that goes into successfully navigating the week in Indy.
The Combine is always one of the busiest weeks of the year; make sure you’re locked into Raiders.com and the team’s official social channels for all things Silver and Black.
