The Senior Bowl is "the nation's most unique football game and football's premier pre-draft event" -- this is their official definition, FYI -- "featuring the country's best senior collegiate football players and top NFL draft prospects on teams representing the North and South that are coached by the entire coaching staffs of two National Football League teams."
In 2011, the coaching staffs are from the Cincinnati Bengals (North) and the Buffalo Bills (South). The game is a collection of players who completed their NCAA eligibility, which this year includes TCU's Andy Dalton, West Virginia's Noel Devine, Nebraska's Roy Helu Jr., Nevada's Colin Kaepernick, Washington's Jake Locker, Oklahoma's DeMarco Murray, Iowa's Ricky Stanzi and a pair from Boston College: LB Mark Herzlich and OL Anthony Castonzo.
NFL GMs, coaches and scouts have descended upon Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, to get an up-close(-and-very-personal) look at potential 2011 NFL Draft selections.
The 2011 Senior Bowl is set for kick off on Saturday, January 29, at 4:00 p.m. EST, and is broadcast on NFL Network.
