NFL Will Allow Underclassmen To Compete In CFB All-Star Games
The NFL is making a change to one of its policies in regard to the NFL Draft. The Senior Bowl is called the Senior Bowl for a reason. Underclassmen are now allowed to participate. However, that will now change as of now. The NFL released a memo that will now allow underclassmen to participate in college football All-Star games. Those games include the Senior Bowl, the East-West Shrine Game, and the HBCU Legacy Bowl.
NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero first reported the news:
I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but I hate this. This rule change is so stupid. If you’re an underclassmen that declares for the draft, it should be because I don’t need to see any more of you. I don’t need to see Caleb Williams at the Senior Bowl. It accomplishes nothing.
The Senior Bowl and these other CFB All-Star games should be reserved for the diamonds in the rough. That’s the entire purpose of the game. A perfect example of this is Puka Nacua who was a huge standout at the Senior Bowl. That’s what you’re looking for. I don’t need to see Marvin Harrison Jr. at this event.
Really dumb move on the NFL’s part. I hope that idiot Jim Nagy (yes, he’s an idiot) didn’t have anything to do with this. If he had real balls, he would have pushed back against this. We, however, already know he doesn’t have any stones.
More than anything, this feels like a money grab. Hey, let’s get better players in these events instead of doing the right thing and making the event about actual scouting. Way to go, NFL!
