Within the sprint that is the new Senior Bowl schedule, as players have just three days of practices to learn new concepts and impress NFL scouts and coaches, Tuesday is the marathon. From early morning weigh-ins to media night, and practices in between, there were numerous opportunities to get a closer look at each player participating in this year’s game.
The second and third days of practice will be more intense than Tuesday’s opening sessions, as both days will feature players in full pads, but the new, condensed schedule leaves no time for players to waste making an impression, so the first day of practices was certainly an important one.
