The 2024 CFL Combine

Hello everyone!

I haven’t seen anything posted, but today, Friday, March 8th, is the CFL’s Invitational Combine.

Results can be found here as they come in; 2024 Invitational Combine - CFL.ca

I figure this thread could be used for all upcoming CFL Combine coverage including the Invitational, National, and Global combines.

Who is catching your eye?

Defensive Lineman Mitchell Price from McMaster is catching my eye with an impressive 30 reps on bench press, which currently leads all participants.

Defensive Back Jackson Sombah out of Regina has the highest vertical out of all participants with a result of 36 inches.

There’s a beauty to the CFL’s Invitational Combine.

Every year, we see dozens of on-the-cusp football players take to an indoor field for a gruelling day of testing, measurements and one-on-one drills. Each player that sets foot on that field knows that it could be their last time getting to do so. For the select few that move on — there were 12 last year — they get to put themselves through the football ringer once more on the CFL’s off-season main stage, the CFL Combine presented by New Era.

Very informative for those of us, like me, who have only a vague idea of what happens at these combines outside of the 40-yard dash.

Good info to know. And there is the fan combine: 2 attempts at cowbell and 40 decible yell, one attempt to blow a large red horn for 30 seconds, two attempts carry 4 large beers in plastic steins while dodging through a crowded concourse. If a fan tries to start a wave, immediate disqualification (too dated).

When the 76 participants in Friday’s CFL Invitational Combine take to the turf at the University of Waterloo, they’ll have a perfect player to emulate.

A football combine is a beehive of activity. Simultaneously there are dozens of bodies cycling through measuring stations, testing and head-to-head competition. Before they set foot in that venue, all of those athletes needed registration and their hotels sorted.

You might think after a childhood full of cold prairie winters that Daniel Okpoko would have headed south to suit up for the San Diego Aztecs with a peace sign out the window, never to be seen in these parts — at least in the winter — again.

Each and every CFL winter players from across the country grind their way through multiple days a week of training. Hidden from the stadiums they’ll attack come fall, the winter office is on a track or in a weight room looking to maximize any untapped potential.

Each year the CFL Draft takes on its own unique shape. Positional group strengths and weaknesses are the basis from which everything else seems to grow out around, but one of my personal favourite tendencies is the homecoming for many NCAA athletes.

Ajou Ajou knows what you’re thinking.

Three schools in four years. A college career of upheaval and restarts. Ajou heads into the CFL Combine presented by New Era surrounded by question marks. Don’t be surprised, though if the talented and affable receiver breaks through them all to make some plays and turn some heads when he gets to Winnipeg.

Ajou? At least it is not as annoying as a double name, such as Bo LM, or Mc BT, and several others. I can hardly wait for a player named Michaelangelo Szybilski-Kobitorama
