For the first time in its history, the Senior Bowl has released a watch list of players that could be considered to participate in the 2013 Senior Bowl. On that list are six from the state of Utah as well as one from Boise State.
One of the headliners of the list is defensive tackle Star Lotulelei of Utah, a candidate for the 2012 Nagurski Award and widely considered the top defensive tackle in the nation for the 2012 season. Lotulelei, a potential top five pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, is joined on the list by Southern Utah QB Brad Sorenson, Boise State running back D.J. Harper, Utah running back John White IV, Utah State running back Kerwynn Williams and Utah long snapper Patrick Greene.
The Senior Bowl is the most prestigious of the college football annual all-star games and is attended by NFL coaches, scouts and talent evaluators as they prepare for the NFL Draft.
