The Senior Bowl is one of the biggest events of draft season and in 2021, it will take on an added importance.
With there being no 2021 NFL Combine as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, prospects and teams will be limited to regional combines and Pro Day workouts. As such, the Senior Bowl will be a big chance for these players to prove themselves and make an impact on their draft status moving forward.
As is usually the case with the college All-Star games, scouts have been at practice all week, and those sessions will be critical in helping decide whose stock will rise and fall as a result of the week.
In reality, the game itself doesn’t have as much of an impact as the practice sessions, but it can still help validate players that had strong weeks. Conversely, it can also show off which players are simply better in-game than they are in practice.
Washington Football Team Senior Bowl targets
No matter what happens, the Washington Football Team and the other 31 NFL franchise are going to be scouting this event even more carefully than usual. With plenty of holes on offense, they’ll have a special focus on that area of the field, and fans who have only seen bits and pieces of practice will get to see some of the standouts in full action on Saturday.
With all that said, here’s a look at who the Washington Football Team should be watching closely, as these five offensive players could have a big impact if the Burgundy and Gold end up targeting them in this year’s draft.
