From eventual No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher in 2013 to Aaron Donald and Zack Martin last year, there are annual examples of top college football players parlaying a strong week at the Senior Bowl into a higher selection in the NFL draft.
More than 100 prospects will have that opportunity again this year, as Senior Bowl participants will practice in front of scouts, media and fans on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, then play in the game Saturday.
All of the draft candidates among them have a chance to elevate their stocks this week—that’s what Senior Bowl participation is all about. The following 12 players, however, are among those taking part in this week’s festivities who look to be among the most likely to turn heads and work their ways up boards as they compete against their peers in Mobile, Alabama.
