All-Star Game Schedule 2022

All-Star Game Schedule 2022

A full schedule of postseason All-star games return this year after closing down every event except the Senior Bowl Classic last offseason. The Covid 19 virus cancelled a wide range of events, making the scouting process very difficult. The NFL Draft 2021 class will be interesting to evaluate in a few more seasons and seeing if a higher number of early draft selection become busts and more late round sleepers emerge over the first three or four seasons.

Both dates and locations of several events have changed in many cases for the major All-star venues, in addition to several small college All-star events.  DraftInsiders.com scouting staff will be at events plus the NFL Combine 2022. Each All-star event will have announcements thru the postseason with player and coaching additions and updates. Check back here for updates related to All-star game changes.

All-Star Game Schedule 2022

Jan. 15 -Hula Bowl – Orlando, Florida
The Hula Bowl is set to be played at the University of Central Florida on Jan. 15, 2022. The game is usually played in Honolulu but Aloha Stadium is going through a renovation. The Hula Bowl moved its historic game from Honolulu to Orlando for its 2022 game. The iconic game is pleased to feature an amazing lineup of coaching legends for its Orlando Debut.  This year’s coaching staff has over 275 years of combined coaching experience.  The game will maintain much of its rich Hawaiian heritage, and will continue with its two squads, titled the AINA and KAI, representing the Land and Sea in Hawaiian.

Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith will return to the sidelines to be the AINA head coach at the 2022 Hula Bowl.  During his time at the helm of the Falcons, he became the franchise’s winningest head coach by number of wins.  In addition, he was awarded the prestigious NFL 2008 Coach of the Year Award by the Associated Press.

Brian Billick will head up the KAI squad. He was the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings from 1994 to 1998. The team broke the NFL scoring record in the 1998 season. Following this record setting performance, Billick spent nine seasons as the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens from January 19, 1999 to December 31, 2007. On January 28, 2001, Billick won Super Bowl XXXV as the Ravens’ head coach in a 34–7 victory over the New York Giants. It was the Ravens’ first Super Bowl appearance. He was inducted into the Baltimore Ravens Ring of Honor in 2019.

Jan. 29 – NFLPA Collegiate Bowl – Rose Bowl, Pasadena, Ca.
The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl announced their 10th edition of its game will take place on January 29, 2022.

After going virtual for the 2021, the game will once again be played at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium and be televised on NFL Network. Former NFL head coaches, Jeff Fisher and Marvin Lewis have been selected to lead the American and National teams for the 2022 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. The 10th annual game will take place at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in California and air live on NFL Network.

Feb. 3 – East-West Shrine Bowl – Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Throughout its history, the Senior Bowl has produced over 55 players that went on to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The game is unique among college all-star games as the teams are coached by NFL staff. Former MVPs of the game include the likes of Dan Marino, LaDainian Tomlinson, Dak Prescott and Justin Herbert.
