Seamlessly out of nowhere, the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is underway.

Throughout this week, NFL prospects will be put through multiple drills, measurements, interviews and tests.

Last year Darnell Savage, Derwin Gray and Byron Cowart attended the combine, and this year three more Terps will be participating — running backs Javon Leake and Anthony McFarland Jr., as well as safety Antoine Brooks Jr.

Leake and McFarland arrived in Indianapolis Monday and will go through measurements, interviews and pre-exams Tuesday. The duo will then have a media day, which also includes more medical exams, psychological testing and a position coach interview Wednesday, before bench pressing on Thursday. On Friday — their final day at the combine — Leake and McFarland will have the opportunity to showcase their ability with an on-field workout.

Brooks will undergo the same schedule, but won’t arrive in Indianapolis until Wednesday.

You can watch live coverage of Leake and McFarland on NFL Network Friday from 4-11 p.m. ET, and Brooks on Sunday from 2-7 p.m ET.

The trio of Terps will hope to get their name called during the 2020 NFL Draft, which will take place April 25-27.
