ANC combines serve as a supplement to the National Scouting Combine, and are designed to provide an opportunity for participants to display their pro potential. Applicants must meet eligibility rules. ANC combines are designed for position players eligible for the current year NFL Draft and Free Agents no more than 4 years removed from the year of their draft eligibility. ANC combines are only open to players who played college football or pro football.
Participants are tested and reviewed by experienced NFL former scouting personnel. All ANC tests and drills are conducted by veteran NFL Combine coaches. Participants' measurements, combine results and GBV video are compiled and entered into a database accessible to all 32 NFL clubs, 8 UFL teams and 9 Canadian Football League teams. Top-performing ANC participants are placed on the ANC Hot List which is transmitted to all pro teams immediately following each ANC combine.
ANC combines are single-day tryouts held in the spring.
