Representatives from all 32 NFL teams will make their way to Mobile, Alabama for the start of the 2011 Senior Bowl. The game takes place on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 3:00 p.m. (CT) and will be televised on NFL Network.
The name of the game means something -- Senior Bowl. That means only players who have exhausted their college eligibility can play in the game. The record 56 underclassmen that declared for the draft will not be playing in this game.
Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and Kansas City's personnel department will make their way to Mobile (or, more accurately, are already there) to meet with some of the players during the week leading up to the game.
Last year there were a few future Chiefs playing in the game. When Wisconsin's O'Brien Schofield went down early in the week with a torn ACL, it was Justin Cole who replaced him. He spent much of the season on the Chiefs practice squad.
Also playing in the game last year were Chiefs draft picks CB Javier Arenas, WR/RB Dexter McCluster and LB Cameron Sheffield.
