Michigan leads Senior Bowl with 15 Invitees on 2017 Watch List

Four-hundred players make up the 2016-17 Reese's Senior Bowl Watch List. That may sound like a lot of players, but there are more than 1,200 players who are eligible to play in the 2017 game, not counting potential fourth-year junior graduates.

“The release of our watch list signifies the opening kickoff for the Reese’s Senior Bowl,” said Reese's Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage. “We are looking forward to evaluating these prospects over the next several months in trying to find the best 110 players in America.”

Among the standouts in this year's group: Michigan DL Chris Wormley and tight end Jake Butt, Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly, Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis, USC tackle Zach Banner, Washington State wide receiver Gabe Marks, Iowa QB C.J. Beathard and CB Desmond King and standouts from Alabama: defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, tight end OJ Howard and LBers Reuben Foster and Tim Williams.

"If a player is not on this list, it doesn't mean they can't play in our game,'" said Reese's Senior Bowl Scouting Coordinator Patrick Woo, who worked hand-in-hand with Savage, Reese's Senior Bowl regional scouts and countless NFL scouts to form the list. "The players on our radar are not strictly limited to this list. This provides a starting point for us and NFL clubs. We look forward to finding the very best and bringing them to Mobile."
Last year, 17 players who made the North/South rosters were not on the initial watch list released in the summer. This year's group includes 209 defensive players and 191 offensive players. Specialists were not included in this year's watch list and will form their own list later this season.

The Southeastern Conference leads the way with 69 players on this year's list, making up about 17% of the 400. The SEC is followed closely by the Big Ten's 60 players, 15 of those coming from the University of Michigan. The Wolverines have more 'watch listers' than any other school, by a wide margin. Utah has the second-most with nine, while Alabama, Houston and Louisville each have eight players on the list.
The Atlantic Coast Conference (56), Pac-12 (43), Big 12 (28) and FCS/D2 (41) are also well represented on the watch list. By position, safeties (49), wide receivers (49) and cornerbacks (44) lead the way.

This year's group also includes some players with some outstanding athletic bloodlines. USC's Banner is the son of former NFL standout Lincoln Kennedy. Arizona wide receiver Trey Griffey is the son of baseball great Ken Griffey Jr., Oklahoma State running back Barry Sanders, Jr., is the son of Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders and Ole Miss' Kelly is the nephew of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

The 2017 Reese's Senior Bowl week officially begins on Tuesday, January 24 and concludes with the 68th game on January 28 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile. Ala. The practices are televised live by ESPN and the game is broadcast live on NFL Network at 2:30pm ET.

Senior Bowl 2016 Watch List

MOBILE, ALA – The Reese’s Senior Bowl released their initial Player Watch List this week that will continue through the 2015 season and culminate with the Jan 30th Senior Bowl game. The Senior Bowl staff is set to scout hundreds of players around the country during the 2015-16 college football season, which kicks off Sept. 3.

The core list of players to be evaluated appears on the Reese’s Senior Bowl’s annual ‘watch list,’ which was released today. The initial list features 375 of the top senior prospects in the nation, 110 of which will be invited to participate in the 67th game.

“The release of our watch list signifies the opening kickoff for the Reese’s Senior Bowl,” said Executive Director Phil Savage. “We are looking forward to evaluating these prospects over the next several months in trying to find the best 110 players in America.”

Among the 375 players on this year’s watch list are several that are projected to be top picks in the 2016 NFL Draft like Notre Dame left tackle Ronnie Stanley, Ohio State left tackle Taylor Decker, Baylor defensive lineman Shawn Oakman, Oregon defensive lineman DeForest Buckner and Michigan State players, QB Connor Cook and defensive lineman Shilique Calhoun.

Other college stars to watch include a trio of QBs: USC’s Cody Kessler, TCU’s Trevone Boykin and Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott, Utah running back Devontae Booker, Auburn receiver Duke Williams and Alabama running back Kenyan Drake, defensive lineman Jarran Reed and linebacker Reggie Ragland.

Alabama leads with 12 players on the list followed by Michigan State with 10 and Auburn, Arizona State, Georgia and Utah, all with 9.

The SEC has the most players on the 2016 watch list with 80. The Big Ten (58), Pac-12 (54) and ACC (43) are also well-represented. The entire watch list is available at seniorbowl.com, where you can sort the players by position, conference and/or school.
