NFL Combine Testing Results for 2021

There was a change in format for 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the usual single combine in Indianapolis, this year the fitness assessments were held as part of the individual college pro days, and the interviews held virtually. The pro days were held between March 5 and April 9. Over 300 prospects were invited to participate at the combine, though these test results were from a larger database of over 600 athletes who completed the tests as part of the pro testing days.



As there was no standardized athletic testing at an official combine this year, comparing the results will be a problem as the testing may not have been done under the conditions. We found several databases online of results from the college pro testing days, and have extracted the top-10 results for each assessment test, though remember that the test conditions may not have been the same for each athlete.

See also the listings of top results from every year of the NFL Combine, though the results from 2021 have not been included. For a description of each of these tests, see the page About the NFL Combine.
