2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl: Schedule, rosters, info, how to watch

College football’s highest regarded all star game takes place this weekend after a week of practices for some of the NCAA’s top draft prospects.

The 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl will feature 134 confirmed players split into two rosters. Rather than the traditional North and South squads, this year will feature for the first time the American Team and the National Team.

The actual game kicks off on Saturday, January 30, at 1:30 p.m. CT from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.

Throughout the week leading up to the game, starting Tuesday, the players will be weighed and measured by position group before hitting the field for one-on-one drills and team practices.

Tennessee Titans Senior Bowl Alumni

Titans general manager Jon Robinson has often looked to the Senior Bowl and other college all-star events (like the canceled East-West Shrine Game) in his five drafts for Tennessee.

Of the 35 selections Robinson has made over the past five years, 12 of them (34%) have been invited to play in the Senior Bowl:

  • Austin Johnson, 2016
  • Kevin Byard, 2016
  • Tajae Sharpe, 2016 (invited but did not play due to injury)
  • Sebastian Tretola, 2016
  • Taywan Taylor, 2017
  • Jonnu Smith, 2017
  • Luke Falk, 2018
  • Nate Davis, 2019
  • D’Andre Walker, 2019 (invited but did not play due to injury)
  • David Long Jr., 2019
  • Kristian Fulton, 2020 (invited but did not attend for personal reasons)
  • Larrell Murchison, 2020

The Titans have another connection to the Senior Bowl. In March of 2018, Robinson hired Patrick Woo to be the Titans Scouting Coordinator. Woo served the same role for the Senior Bowl itself from 2014 to 2018, presumably scouting prospective invitees.

There’s no doubt the Senior Bowl is an important event on the Titans draft calendar.
