What players should Colts keep a close eye on at the Senior Bowl?
By Brad Marr
There will be a number of prospects playing in the Reese’s Senior Bowl that the Indianapolis Colts should pay close attention to.
After every college football season comes to an end, the collegiate veterans across the football world amass into two teams led by NFL coaches at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.
The goal is for players to put on a show for scouts and general managers, in hopes of boosting their draft status.
Some of the best players you’ve heard of and even some you haven’t, from across the country are divided into the National and the American teams. The last opportunity to face competition before extensive training, pro days, and the NFL Combine.
How does this All-Star game tie into the Indianapolis Colts pre-draft formula? I’m glad you asked.
Our very own Sam Ehlinger and Kylen Granson was amongst these future NFL superstars, competing in Mobile, Alabama just one year ago. Their performance, much like other players that competed, was instrumental in the Colts’ scouting and drafting process.
That last little exposure may be enough to get your name out there!
While the Colts do not have a first-round pick due to the trade for potential franchise QB, Carson Wentz, the opportunity allows for in-depth analysis on players that could slip to the later rounds.
The positions of need for the Indianapolis roster are offensive tackle, wide receiver, cornerback, tight end, and defensive line.
Let’s take a look at some players Indy should have on its radar when the prospects take the field Saturday afternoon.
