The 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl takes place today in Mobile, Alabama.
The annual game provides another opportunity for NFL teams to evaluate some of the top college players before they head off to the annual Scouting Combine later this month in Indianapolis. The game was first played in 1950 at the Gator Bowl in Florida before moving to Mobile the following year, where it has remained.

Washington State’s Daiyan Henley was the standout in RBvsLB pass rush during the first practice for the National Team.— Seven Rounds in Heaven (@7RoundsInHeaven) February 1, 2023
He made every rep look easy, showing off nice quicks and good hands.
Here, he utilized a nasty push/pull move and discards the RB. #SeniorBowl pic.twitter.com/O9m05HsfTu
