The 2022 Senior Bowl will take place in Mobile, Alabama on February 5th 2022. Prior to the game, players are lead through a week of practices by NFL coaching staffs. With the College Football season winding down, we’ve seen the Senior Bowl announce the first set of accepted invites. We’ve put together those invitees below in an easy to read format in this 2022 Senior Bowl Tracker.

Headlining the list of accepted invites is Bailey Zappe, the quarterback from Western Kentucky. In the offseason, Zappe transferred from Houston Baptist University. This season for the Hilltoppers, Zappe has earned four Offensive Player Of The Week honors in the Conference USA. Additionally, he leads the country in passing yards and passing touchdowns.
Aside from Bailey Zappe, I’m also excited to watch Jaquan Brisker, Logan Hall, and Devin Lloyd. These NFL Draft prospects have made plays all season, but haven’t quite been able to get over the hump. It will be very interesting to see what their draft stock looks like following the Senior Bowl, especially if they can put together a strong week of practice.
Finally, I’m also looking forward to watching some small school prospects. Some notable names in this 2022 Senior Bowl Tracker are Trevor Penning from Northern Iowa and Fayetteville State DB Joshua Williams. Penning could be one of the top offensive linemen selected in the 2022 NFL Draft. I currently have Penning listed as the 151st prospect on our 2022 NFL Draft Top 200 Big Board. However, if he’s able to impress scouts, he could easily slide up much much higher. Joshua Williams is an HBCU defensive back that also looks to impress at the Senior Bowl. As a star track athlete in high school, Williams has the speed and quickness to play the position. In fact, Jordan Reid of ESPN believes that Joshua Williams will be able to play both man and zone coverage.
