Who says football season is over?

If you love football when there is no football then this is the week for you.

Starting on Wednesday, the NFL Scouting Combine will begin in Indianapolis, Ind., a week-long event that will feature a record nine-former Tigers participating in just about every area.

If seeing those guys running around in the underwear Olympics isn’t enough for you, then don’t worry, the defending national champions begin preparations on the same day for the 2017 football season. Clemson will begin spring workouts on Wednesday afternoon as they look to find replacements for the nine guys in the NFL Scouting Combine as well as a few others who have left the program for various reasons.

The Tigers will practice 15 times over the next six weeks, concluding with the annual Orange & White game on April 8 in Death Valley. The Tigers will begin the first week practicing on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. They will also host Youth Day on Saturday morning as well.

As for the NFL Scouting Combine, former Clemson players will not begin participating until Thursday when running back Wayne Gallman participates in the bench press. Quarterback Deshaun Watson, wide receivers Mike Williams and Artavis Scott and tight end Jordan Leggett will receive measurements on that day as well.

From that point on, a former Clemson player will be participating in some facet in the combine. Linebacker Ben Boulware and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins will begin their process on Friday, while cornerback Cordrea Tankersley and safety Jadar Johnson will begin with the rest of the defensive backs on Saturday.

The combine concludes on Monday, March 6 when the defensive backs participate in on-field workouts.
