by Matty Kiwoom · Featured

These are players to get familiar with at the 2024 Senior Bowl!

Jim Carey looks at Jeff Daniels as they arrive in Colorado in the freezing cold and says “we’re there.” Ladies and gents…we’re there, it is officially NFL Draft season. The East/West Shrine Bowl is under way in Texas, and the Reese’s 2024 Senior Bowl is set to start this week in Mobile, Alabama. These all-star games are a significant step to get drafted by an NFL franchise. It is also a great place for us dynasty sickos to start prepping for our rookie drafts in 2024. 

Here are a handful of players that I am most excited about in Mobile and expect them to get some helium going forward.
