350 players named to Senior Bowl watch list

Senior Bowl

If you thought watch list season was over, think again. The Senior Bowl, the nation’s premiere college football all-star game, released a watch list with a massive list of players that will be eligible and scouted for the 2015 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. In all, 350 of the nation’s top seniors are named on the watch list, although other players may be added at any time just in case the folks at the senior Bowl happened to miss one of the seniors from around the country. Players from all levels of college football are considered for an invitation to the Senior Bowl, so the possibility exists for a Division 2 or Division 3 players to make a push out of nowhere for consideration.

The SEC has 75 players on the watch list, more than any other conference. The ACC (56), Pac-12 (40), Big 12 (36) and Big Ten (35) are all well-represented on the list. Clemson has the most players from one school on the list with 12 players named to the watch list, followed by Auburn (11), Alabama (10), Mississippi State (9), Georgia (8) and Louisville (8).

Many of the top names from around college football are included in the list, including Texas A&M left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, Florida State offensive tackle Cameron Erving, Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Clemson outside linebacker Vic Beasley, Iowa left tackle Brandon Scherff, Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty and Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker. Five Pac-12 quarterbacks are also on the list including Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and UCLA’s Brett Hundley.

“With both of these players already graduated from college, we hope the opportunity to invite this duo will present itself through their play on the field in the Pac-12,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage, speaking of Mariota and Hundley.

A total of 110 players will initially receive invites to the 2015 Senior Bowl. The game is generally attended very well by top players invited as it serves as the last major showcase for rookie NFL talent before the NFL Scouting Combine. The game is a big draw for NFL coaches and scouts and is the last chance to see players in pads and gear before the combine in Indianapolis.

You can check out the full watch list, and you can even break it down by position, conference or school for making browsing the list a bit easier.

    I love these pointless lists as much as the next guy, but no one ever points out how many of these guys actually make it in the NFL.

    A good example would be the amount of QB’s from big name programs that flamed out over the years:
    1. J.Russell
    2. Tebow
    3. Anyone who played QB at Notre Dame in the last decade
    4. Greg McElroy
    5. Tyler Wilson
    6. Anyone who played QB at tOSU in the last decade
    7. Anyone who played QB at USC (Trojans) in the last decade

    I could be here all day, conferences love to brag about guys getting drafted, but refuse to talk about how many actually end up playing more than 2 seasons
