NFL Combine Dashboard app comes to Surface for your off-season football fix

Surface, the Official Tablet of the NFL used by players, team staff and fans, isn’t resting during the off season. The first stop is the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, where more than 300 top college players are evaluated by the NFL for the 2014 NFL Draft in May. Fans will be able to stay on top of the goings-on using an app called the NFL Combine Dashboard.

This year at the Combine, “we will help all 32 teams get player information, results and event details in near real time with the combination of Surface tablets” and the app, writes Brian Seitz, Surface senior manager. Surfaces will be used to capture data from each field event, enabling team personnel to track players as they make their way through the Combine, and make comparisons across participating players at each position.
