The 2024 Senior Bowl week capped off with Saturday’s game in Mobile. The three days of practices at the home of hte University of South Alabama saw over 100 potential NFL draft prospects work out under the watchful eyes of NFL evaluators from all 32 teams as well as hundreds of media members.
Alas, many of those players chose not to play in the actual game, which the National team won 16-7 over the American team. There were various reasons for not playing; some players suffered injuries during the week, while others opted to stand on what positives they’d accomplished in practices.
Among the most notable prospects who were in practices during the week but didn’t participate in the Senior Bowl game itself:
UCLA EDGE Laiatu Latu
Washington QB Michael Penix Jr.
Michigan WR Roman Wilson
Oregon OL Jackson Powers-Johnson
Oregon State OT Taliese Fuaga
North Carolina State LB Payton Wilson
Toledo CB Quinyon Mitchell
Western Kentucky WR Malachi Corley
Those who didn’t play gave more opportunities to those who did get into the Senior Bowl game on Saturday. As an example, with Penix sitting out, Notre Dame QB Sam Hartman played almost the entire game for the National team.
