The marquee all-star game of the pre-draft season takes place Saturday, when many of the nation’s best prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft will compete against one another in the 2013 Senior Bowl.
The North and South rosters are both laden with future draft picks, including many potential first-round picks.
Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher, Texas defensive end Alex Okafor and Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib highlight the North squad.
Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson and BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah are among the many players scouts will be keeping a close eye from the South squad.
In fact, most of the players’ work is done, as the bulk of scouting evaluations from the Senior Bowl took place during practices from Monday to Thursday.
That said, Saturday’s contest in Mobile will be one final change for the players in this game to strap on the pads and play a game of football to make an impression on NFL teams.
Each NFL team will be focusing upon different players based upon their positional needs and system fits. Which players should you be focusing on at each position? The following slides highlight some of the top prospects to watch on both teams.
The Senior Bowl kicks off at 4 p.m. EST Saturday on NFL Network.
