Next week, NFL teams and their fans around the country will have their eyes on this year’s combine.

While every front office will be focusing on the talent available in the upcoming draft, it seems one coaching staff has decided to spend that time working on something else.

According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the Green Bay Packers‘ coaching staff will not be attending the combine as they intend to spend that time working on scheme projects instead.

Taking this time to work on scheme projects, especially on the offensive side of the ball makes sense for the Packers’ coaching staff right now. The team will need to make changes to tailor their offense to Jordan Love after years with Aaron Rodgers under center.

Although the coaching staff won’t be present, the Packers will still be represented at the NFL Combine. General Manager Brian Gutekunst and the personnel department will still be attending.


With the Packers not currently in the quarterback market, their GM and scouts are really the only ones who need to be on hand at the combine to meet with players. They can likely take care of those pre-draft interviews at any other position.

As a team that doesn’t tend to spend big in free agency, the draft is the most important piece of building the Green Bay Packers’ roster.

This year, it looks like their coaching staff will let the personnel department get the first look at the players who could become key pieces of their franchise.
