The college football Senior Bowl is an opportunity for some of the NFL draft’s top prospects to not only be honored for their outstanding seasons and careers but also showcase their talents for NFL scouts during the game and week of practice leading up to it.
While today’s Senior Bowl will feature a number of top prospects for the 2012 NFL draft, there will be some notable names not in attendance. Of course, juniors aren’t allowed to participate, so that explains not seeing guys like Luck, Griffin and Blackmon, but there will also be quite of few seniors not participating due to injury.
For the most part these injuries aren’t typically serious—more just a reason for guys to not participate for fear of hurting their draft status.
Here are some of the big names who will not be seen playing today.
