The NFL Scouting Combine will be functionally unrecognizable, a series of pro days and remote interviews without the massive in-person gatherings. That will present a logistical headache for teams and will keep us from casually watching and learning about impressive workouts in real time, but that’s life in the age of COVID-19.
The Senior Bowl, however, is going on as planned. There will be smaller crowds in the seats and things like meeting the players will go out the window for the public, but the up-close look at these players will likely mean the seniors here will be well-represented on NFL rosters next year.
Here’s what you need to know about the Senior Bowl.
