Last year Eric Fisher flew down to Mobile, Alabama to compete in the Senior Bowl as a likely first round selection. By the time he boarded his plane to fly home he was a surefire top ten pick and ultimately ended up as the #1 selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Senior Bowl is the ultimate showcase for NFL Draft prospects to showcase their ability against the best competition in fully padded, max effort drills. Each year players dramatically improve their draft stock, rise up draft boards, and make themselves money.
Conversely, other players get exposed, overmatched, or outplayed in front of the entire NFL. It’s sure to happen again this year when the 2014 Senior Bowl kicks off next week.
In this Senior Bowl preview I break down the positional groupings, rank the prospects, and make some predictions as to who I believe will leave Mobile a star, like Eric Fisher did last year.
