Senior Bowl 2012: Players To Watch

The 2012 Senior Bowl kicks off at 4 p.m. (ET) today on NFL Network. There are quite a few notable players set to play in the game, and here's a rundown of who you should keep an eye on this afternoon:

Players the Lions have interviewed

  • RB Dan Herron (Ohio State) - North No. 1
  • RB Doug Martin (Boise State) - North No. 22
  • OT Zebrie Sanders (Florida State) - South No. 77
  • OT Cordy Glenn (Georgia) - South No. 71
  • C Ben Jones (Georgia) - South No. 60
  • LB Zach Brown (North Carolina) - South No. 47
  • DB Trenton Robinson (Michigan State) - North No. 19

Although the Lions have undoubtedly spoken to more than just these seven players, we know that these guys have had at least some contact with the team. While that doesn't necessarily mean anything in the long run, I'm interested to see how they perform today.

Players with local ties

  • QB Kirk Cousins (Michigan State) - North No. 8
  • TE Brian Linthicum (Michigan State) - North No. 85
  • DT Mike Martin (Michigan) - North No. 68
  • DB Trenton Robinson (Michigan State) - North No. 19

Unlike the East-West Shrine Game, Michigan and Michigan State players will actually be teammates for the Senior Bowl.

Other notable names

  • QB Kellen Moore (Boise State) - North No. 11
  • QB Russell Wilson (Wisconsin) - North No. 16
  • QB Nick Foles (Arizona) - South No. 8
  • WR Marvin McNutt (Iowa) - North No. 7
  • WR DeVier Posey (Ohio State) - North No. 3
  • WR A.J. Jenkins (Illinois) - South No. 88
  • OL Mike Adams (Ohio State) - North No. 75
  • OL Mike Brewster (Ohio State) - North No. 50
  • OL Kelechi Osemele (Iowa State) - North No. 73
  • DL Quinton Coples (North Carolina) - South No. 90
  • DL Melvin Ingram (South Carolina) - South No. 6
  • LB Lavonte David (Nebraska) - North No. 4
  • LB/DL Courtney Upshaw (Alabama) - South No. 41
  • DB Brandon Boykin (Georgia) - South No. 2
  • DB Janoris Jenkins (North Alabama) - South No. 1
