We haven't even seen the Super Bowl yet, and already it's time for run-of-the-mill NFL fans to put on their scouting caps and watch tomorrow's NFL stars. At 4PM today, some of college football's brightest senior stars will put their games on display for scouts and fans during the 2008 Senior Bowl.
No coverage of the Senior Bowl is better online than that of Scott Wright's at NFL Draft Countdown. All week he's been blogging, tracking and updating readers on the practice performances of the players, and has been sitting in on press conferences as well. His coverage is a must-see if you can't see the game today.
I'll be watching the game (I love having NFL Network at college), so if any of you don't have access to the Network, keep it docked here, as I'll be providing occasional updates on prospects I've got my eye on for our Bills. Better yet, if you can watch, provide your own thoughts as well!
Before the game gets underway, however, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at which NFL teams have shown interest in which players over the past week's worth of practices. All of the players listed below are prospects who would be good fits in a Bills uniform; the team information, again, comes via NFL Draft Countdown (and no, Wright doesn't have any mention of the Bills talking with any prospects - which, of course, doesn't mean it didn't happen). Enjoy!
