The serious NFL fan already has a 2020 NFL Combine live stream taken care of. Waiting until next season, for them, is too long, and the XFL is not good enough. But that doesn't mean there aren't things to see between now and then.

For instance, starting on Thursday, some of the world's best young players will be participating in the NFL Combine, a scouting event, where players hoping to make it into the NFL show off their skills in front of NFL teams.

Either way, the NFL Combine has quickly become a must-see for NFL fans who enjoy seeing what the future holds. It's also an opportunity for tomorrow's stars to showcase their athleticism and why they deserve a spot on the world's best football teams.

Simply put, if you're a serious football fan, or just someone who wants to see the next big thing, watching the NFL Combine is the way to go.
