Senior Bowl Coverage:

NFL Draft

One of the most important weeks leading up to the NFL Draft is Senior Bowl week. While the actual game is interesting, it only represents a small portion of the scouting perspective. The weigh in, daily practices and interview processes all go into the equation as to whether a player is a prospect or a suspect. While the Combine and the Pro Day’s offer much of the same information, the Senior Bowl has one major advantage, practice. Here scouts have 100 of the best senior prospects in college football going up against one another in practice at the behest of NFL coaching staffs. Although juniors aren’t allowed and some players have declined an invitation, due to injury or otherwise, the vast majority of these guys will hear their names called in April. The Senior Bowl practices (not all of them) are televised on the NFL Network, and I will be providing some recaps and highlights from what I see. In addition to my analysis, I suggest you checkout a number of sources from draftniks covering the week live.
