The 2014 Reese’s Senior Bowl is in Mobile, Alabama on January 25 at 4 p.m. ET on NFL Network. The Denver Broncos have made it to the Super Bowl and will be traveling east for the week of practice. However, they have sent scouts (and even John Elway) to search out their next draft class at the Senior Bowl.
This game features the best seniors entering the 2014 NFL draft. Back in 2009, the Broncos saw Robert Ayers have a dominant Senior Bowl performance and made him a first-round pick. In 2011, they noticed Von Miller at the game and made the decision to select him with the second overall pick in the draft. They’re hoping to find another potential starter (or more) in Mobile this year.
Denver has five main spots to focus on during the predraft process. It should take a long look at cornerbacks, defensive linemen, wide receivers, tight ends and linebackers in this game. There might even be a surprise standout at another position who could flash NFL ability.
For the past eight years, I have attended the week of practice for the Senior Bowl. During that time, I have seen some of the best players in the NFL today first showcase what they could do for scouts at this game.
Here are some of the standout players I observed during practice who could fit the Broncos' needs.
