2016 Scouting Combine schedule: A week of prospect buzz and Falcons scouting

Your guide to the Combine, which kicks off tomorrow.

The scouting combine is an odd beast, as it features a bunch of sportswriters tweeting out measurements from top prospects who stand around being weighed, drills where those prospects try to show off their athleticism, and plenty of team interviews where we can gauge which players teams are interested in. It's a mishmash, but typically a fun one.

For the Falcons, it's a big opportunity to get to know the prospects they like, and even if the drills are a poor way to figure out how a given player is going to perform on the field, it gives you a glimpse at the athleticism, strength, and demeanor. With only five picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, it's kind of important for the Falcons to feel really good about whoever they're going to select this year, so this can only help them make their decisions.

Below, you'll find the full schedule. We'll have live threads and coverage throughout the week.
