The NFL recently announced that it will conduct its Combine Series from March 27-29, featuring the Regional Combine Invitational (RCI) and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, or HBCU, Combine, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport was the first to report the news:

According to Rapoport, the RCI and the HBCU Combine will provide an evaluation opportunity and exposure for Draft-eligible athletes with no remaining eligibility who were not invited to the National Invitational Combine (NIC).

This event will also highlight some stars from black colleges who probably had not played on a national stage, which is great news for HBCU student-athletes everywhere!
