CFL releases invite list for 2021 National Combine

The Canadian Football League has released the list of prospects that will participate in the 2021 CFL Combine.

Earlier this year, the CFL announced the complete combine experience will be conducted virtually. Testing, football drills and interviews will be conducted remotely through video and will replace the traditional in-person gathering of young prospects and football personnel from the league’s nine member clubs.

CFL franchises will have the option of conducting live player interviews online, reviewing prospects’ previous play on tape, and gathering and reviewing medical, background and performance information remotely.

Below are details of what each prospect will go through during the virtual combine:

• All combine invitees (National & Regional) will provide their medical history (with input from their school therapist/doctor).

• All combine invitees will fill out a personal questionnaire.

• Clubs would be responsible for setting up and conducting national player video interviews.

• The league has established protocols and guidelines to have each Combine (National & Regional) participant conduct and film themselves performing select tests and positional drills in a safe environment with the League distributing to the Clubs by a certain date.
