Senior Bowl Week Starts

New, comments

The 2012 Senior Bowl week is starting today with the official weigh-ins. You can see weigh-in results for the South team and the North team.

The East-West Shrine game (last weekend) and the Senior Bowl (next weekend) are two of the big postseason all-star games that give NFL teams a chance to see the prospects for the 2012 NFL draft up close. Here's a Senior Bowl primer entering the week.

The weigh-ins are always interesting (like this Terrence Cody picture) as it gives teams to see the true height and weight of players. Sometimes colleges will make their quarterbacks a couple inches taller or another player a few pounds heavier. NFL teams will get all the legit measurements now.

And for the Chiefs the Senior Bowl serves another purpose -- the job fair. Many out-of-work coaches go down to the Senior Bowl trying to catch on with a team and perhaps the Chiefs will find one (or two) coordinator down there.
