Let’s look at what exactly is the Senior Bowl, who gets invited to the game, and who are some of the top NFL players who have participated in it.
Senior Bowl explained
The Senior Bowl is the prominent postseason college football all-star game that serves as a national showcase for top NFL prospects who have completed their college eligibility. Talents from across the country are rostered into “National” and “American” teams and participate in a week of practices leading up to the event during which NFL coaches, scouts and more get to keep an eye on them and evaluate them.
This year’s event is slightly different than the prior editions due to a “coach up” format that will be used for the first time to promote professional development. While in the past, two NFL teams provided each Senior Bowl team with a full coaching, training, and video staff, this year assistant coaches and coordinators will be placed into elevated or different roles from the ones they currently hold with their clubs.
The 2023 Senior Bowl will occur at the University of South Alabama’s Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, Ala. The event will be entering its second season at the new venue after 50 years at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
