Let's get together to overrate prospects based on one viewing! It's all in good fun.
Happy Saturday, ladies and gentlemen. Today is the day of the best of the college football all-star games, the Senior Bowl. For the first time ever, the Senior Bowl is allowing non-seniors to participate in the game if they've graduated from college, which will be a thing going forward.
Before the game starts, check out Tex's roster preview. There are a number of players who are participating in this game that would be excellent draft options for the Packers. Most of the truly elite guys aren't at the Senior Bowl, but a few late-1st quality guys and a ton of 2nd-3rd round quality guys will be on display.
Even though it's not too relevant to the Packers, the big thing to watch for the NFL as a whole in this game is the quarterback play. This draft has no QB on the level of Robert Griffin or Andrew Luck, but 6-7 QBs who have enough talent to start in the league. A couple teams will reach for one in the top half, and someone's going to get incredible value with a long-term starter in the 2nd or 3rd round.
