The 2011 Senior Bowl is upon us, as the entire NFL travels to Mobile, Ala., to scout the premier NFL Draft prospects. Although the NFL Draft Combine gets a lot of hype, there is no better place for players to improve their stock than Senior Bowl week.
The talent pool is very strong this year, but as always, a handful of players have pulled out of the game, some like Drake Nevis and Daniel Thomas because of injuries.
Other prospects are advised not to play in the game by their management teams.
You can watch Senior Bowl practice all week on the NFL Network. Practice is important because of the one-on-one battles that take place. This is where offensive and defensive linemen can earn millions of dollars.
Last year Brandon Graham, Mike Iupati, Sean Weatherspoon, and Kyle Wilson were four of the prospects who used the Senior Bowl to solidify first-round picks.
Here are the top 20 prospects I will be tuning in to watch this Saturday.
