The Senior Bowl has been announcing the players to be featured in its game over the last several weeks, with plenty more to come. Some of the top non-AQ players in the country will be represented in Mobile, Ala., for the showcase game on Jan. 29.
Here is a partial list:
Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
Jerrel Jernigan, WR/AP, Troy
Jeremy Kerley, WR/AP, TCU
Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State
Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii
Titus Young, WR, Boise State
Dalton joins a South roster that already features Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy and Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder. Dalton's draft status is one to watch, in my opinion. He may not be Andrew Luck but he has got the intangibles covered. It's hard to argue against a player who has won a school-record 42 games and definitely has the size at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds to play in the NFL.
Mel Kiper ranks him as the No. 5 senior quarterback going into the draft in his current rankings. Others project him as a fourth- to fifth-round pick.
"I’m just going to go out and show [scouts] how I play, show them that I can play with a lot of these players," Dalton said in a statement announcing his participation. "Hopefully people will see my leadership abilities and all the different intangibles that I can bring to the game."
Kiper has Jernigan listed as his No. 4 senior wide receiver.
Several other top non-AQ players have committed to play in another all-star game, the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando on Jan. 22. Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been invited to play in both games. Here is a partial list of the East-West participants:
Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego State
Ricky Dobbs, QB, Navy
Lester Jean, WR, FAU
Jeron Johnson, S, Boise State
Shiloh Keo, S, Idaho
Brian Lainhart, S, Kent State
Josh McNary, DE, Army
Dontay Moch, DE/LB, Nevada
Justin Taplin-Ross, S, Utah
