The NFL Combine gets underway this weekend at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this week and the Atlanta Falcons are in the market for “nastier” players, according to head coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons are in the market for help on both sides of the line of scrimmage as they seek quality depth and potential starters on the offensive and defensive lines.

For the first time, the NFL Combine will be broadcast on network television. ABC will present a two-hour special on March 2 from Indianapolis that will feature drills by quarterbacks and wide receivers. The rest of the Combine will air on NFL Network from March 1-4.

It must be noted, ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network will televise all three days of the draft, April 25-27 from Nashville, Tennessee.
