Senior Bowl week has come to a close. All week these NFL hopefuls have been able to show their wares for NFL scouts, coaches, and personnel men. Now they will have the chance to put it on the field in a live game situation on national television.
For the North team, all eyes will be on quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen. Both are potential top ten picks in the upcoming draft and are in Mobile to try and cement their place with the likes of Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen as worthy of being a team’s franchise quarterback. It’s just too bad they aren’t on opposing teams because that would make for a far more interesting showdown.
This game is also a great chance for players who haven’t faced a lot of top tier teams to show they can hang with Big-five conference talent. Players like UT-San Antonio’s Marcus Davenport, Humbolt State’s Alex Cappa, New Mexico State’s Jaleel Scott, or Dubuque’s Michael Joseph.
