Senior Bowl week has arrived! Coaches, scouts and executives will be traveling to Mobile, Alabama, for one of the first glimpses of comprehensive player evaluation. College football players will strive to make a mark as potential additions to NFL rosters. In 2023's annual college all-star game with 120-plus participants, practices will be held from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama. The game will be held on Saturday, Feb. 4 (2:30 p.m. ET on NFL Network).

In 2022, the Senior Bowl featured 106 prospects who were drafted last April, which represented 82 percent of the prospects who participated in the event. Additionally, the Buccaneers drafted several players who participated in the 2022 Senior Bowl, including Logan Hall, Luke Goedeke, Rachaad White, Jake Camarda and Zyon McCollum. Among the players participating this year, TCU's Max Duggan is one of the hottest names after a sensational 2022 campaign, despite struggles in the national title game. Tennessee's Hendon Hooker would have been a strong candidate to play in the exhibition, but he suffered a season-ending ACL tear in a loss to South Carolina in November and is currently undergoing rehab.

One of the apparent strengths of the 2023 Draft Class is pass rushers, evidenced by the group in Mobile. Among the group's top penetrators are Texas Tech's Tyree Wilson, Army's Andre Carter II, Ohio State's Zach Harrison, Notre Dame's Isaiah Foskey, TCU's Dylan Horton, Auburn's Derick Hall and Tennessee's Byron Young.

The one-on-one battles in the trenches during the all-star game always add intrigue and this year presents a promising group of young offensive tackles including Maryland's Jaelyn Duncan, Syracuse's Matthew Bergeron, Michigan's Ryan Hayes, USC's Andrew Vorhees (who also plays guard) and North Dakota State's Cody Mauch.

The 2023 class of running backs has garnered attention, with several standouts among the compilation. Georgia's Kenny McIntosh has a talented upside as a receiver and Illinois' Chase Brown ranked fourth in the FBS in rush yards (1,643) this season. Kentucky's Chris Rodriguez Jr. is a powerful rusher who averaged 6.2 yards per carry in his career and Oklahoma's Eric Gray ran for 1,366 yards in 2022. Tulane's Tyjae Spears finished with eight straight 100-yard rushing outings and Texas' Roschon Johnson, who split time with star Bijan Robinson, became one of the best change-of-pace rushers.
