The National Football League announced today that the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine will feature more coverage than ever before, including a two-hour special on ABC – the first time the Combine is airing on broadcast television.

In addition to the NFL Network and NFL.com live coverage of on-field drills at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, ABC will broadcast two hours of live on-site coverage during the quarterback and wide receiver drills on Saturday, March 2 at 1 p.m. ET. Trey Wingo will host ABC’s NFL Live: NFL Scouting Combine special with Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay, Louis Riddick, Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.

In addition to the ABC special, ESPN will host multiple editions of NFL Live from the Combine with hosts Wendi Nix and Suzy Kolber, beginning Wednesday, February 27.

Later this spring, ESPN and ABC will televise all three days of the 2019 NFL Draft, April 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn. Both networks will air their own distinct prime time telecasts on Days 1 and 2, and this marks the first time that ABC will broadcast all three rounds of the NFL Draft.
