The likes of Michael Penix Jr, J.J. McCarthy, and Rome Odunze will all be taking part in this jam-packed day of combine drills.

The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine has only a couple of days to go before it finally wraps up, and Saturday’s lineup of combine drills is surely the most anticipated of the entire event.

We’ve had the defensive linemen, defensive backs, linebackers, and tight ends all go through their measurements, medicals, and drills, and now it’s time to see the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs.

The Seattle Seahawks have already met with Jayden Daniels, J.J. McCarthy, and Drake Maye. For someone projected to go in the later rounds, they’ve also had informal meeting with Tulane’s Spencer Pratt. It’s a position that will most likely see at least three QBs taken in the first five picks (Caleb Williams, Daniels, and Maye), and likely four in the first round (McCarthy).

Running back is finally not a need for the Seahawks (I think). There could still be interest in some competition for Kenny McIntosh or just a general third-down back if DeeJay Dallas departs in free agency. I doubt that the likes of Michigan’s Blake Corum, for example, could be headed for the Seahawks. It’s still worth keeping an eye on, though!

Lastly, wide receiver looks like another deep class. Washington’s Rome Odunze, LSU’s Malik Nabers (who won’t test at the combine), and Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr (who also won’t be at the combine for drills) are all projected to be first-round picks. Other names to watch include Georgia’s Ladd McConkey, Florida State’s Keon Coleman, Oregon’s Troy Franklin, and Michigan’s Roman Wilson.

NFL Network and the NFL+ streaming service have live combine coverage throughout the day. For those who don’t want to watch/are unable to watch and just want to follow along with the results, the 2024 NFL Combine Results Tracker may be accessed here.
