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.

Last year’s Senior Bowl feature five Quarterbacks who went on to start games in the NFL this past season, including rookie sensation Russell Wilson. Last year’s game also included a little known back from Florida Atlantic who went on to rush for 1600 yards this season.

The next generation of stars are always there to be found and this year will be no different. There is a very solid group of skill position players and a group of Quarterbacks who will be fighting for position on NFL teams draft boards.

You can find the Senior Bowl defensive prospect preview here.

After researching what the Patriots might look for when drafting for the secondary yesterday, I took a look at all of the defensive backs down at the Senior Bowl this year to see who the Patriots might have been most interested in.

There is no perfect player here, but there are certainly some players that fit the Patriots mold.
