The Combine Corner is part of the NFL Draft Experience, which the NFL describes as an expansive, interactive Draft celebration along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway that is free to the public and open all three days of the Draft. NFL Draft Experience will feature interactive elements, flag football competitions, concessions, player appearances/autographs, a Super Bowl Museum and more.

In the Combine, there is the Vertical Jump FMP: "Jump as high as you can and hit the corresponding flag to discover your vertical reach just like at the NFL Scouting Combine," the NFL says.

And there's also the 40-Yard Dash FMP: "Race down the field against your opponents and digital NFL players on a giant 40-yard long LED wall," the NFL says.
