It’s the first big event of the NFL offseason, the Senior Bowl. And the week began Monday morning with the annual weigh-in of the prospects.
More than 100 draft eligible prospects have assembled in Mobile, Alabama for this week’s practices and the Senior Bowl game on Saturday. The day began with the prospects being weighed and measured for the assembled scouts inside the Downtown Mobile Convention Center.
The Bills are here in force, with GM Doug Whaley leading his scouting staff. Former GM Buddy Nix, now the team’s Special Assistant, is also here and we chatted with him briefly in the lobby of the Senior Bowl hotel. Nix says he’s been watching and grading prospects all season, but this is his first real chance to get a look at the players first-hand.
The South team practice starts at 1pm Central at Fairhope Stadium outside Mobile. The North team starts at 3pm at Ladd Peebles Stadium, the venue for Saturday’s game.
Doug Marrone is here for the second year as Bills Head Coach. He’ll be watching practices over the next few days and meeting with his personnel staff.
We’ll hear from Coach Marrone tonight at 7pm, when we broadcast The John Murphy Show live from the Senior Bowl. We’ll also have a video interview with the Head Coach posted on Buffalobills.com later today.
