Who are the Falcons keying on, and how can you watch the game? We’ve got you covered.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl-South Practice Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

We still have over a week to go until the Super Bowl, and in the meantime, you’re going to need to get your football fix somehow. Today, let’s try the Senior Bowl.

This showcase features some of—but hardly all of—the top senior football players in the nation. It’s a first opportunity for NFL teams to check these players out, court them, and get their draft lists started, and even those teams that are currently headed to the Super Bowl are getting in on the action. That includes our Falcons, who have traditionally invested considerable time and energy in the Senior Bowl, and come away with some quality players, including potential Rookie of the Year candidate Deion Jones.

Here’s what you need to know for the game, a handful of prospects the Falcons have apparently spoken with, and a couple of relevant links out to top prospects to watch and Charles McDonald’s notes for the Senior Bowl. Enjoy the game later this afternoon.
