Collin Klein likely Senior Bowl snub
Despite the fact that Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was invited to New York as one of three Heisman finalists, he is not expected to receive a Senior Bowl invite, according to one league source.

The reason the Senior Bowl is expected to pass on Klein are some of the same reasons he is not expected to be a high draft pick. Scouts are concerned about his throwing motion and passing abilities, even though he was good enough to elevate an entire football program and enable it to compete for a national championship.
Other quarterbacks have impressed NFL scouts more, sources say, and they will be the ones invited to Mobile, Ala., next month. Klein will have to focus on getting ready for the combine.
Invites are determined by the Senior Bowl in consultation with NFL scouts, with Senior Bowl executive Phil Savage holding the final call.
