The 2021 Senior Bowl week concluded this past Saturday. The week in Mobile helped shine the light on some NFL prospects, while it raised questions about others.
The draft begins in Mobile, at least that’s the slogan plastered all over the Reese’s Senior Bowl publications. The 2021 NFL Draft is going to be challenging for teams, and the Senior Bowl was a rare opportunity for teams to get their eyes on prospects in action. The 2021 scouting circuit has been complicated by the pandemic, and with NFL teams unable to observe players in person at the NFL Combine, the Reese’s Senior Bowl took on extra importance this year.
We provided an in-depth preview of players who the Kansas City Chiefs could be watching during the Senior Bowl, and several of the names on that list popped up this week, for better or worse. It is worth noting that several players had suffered minor injuries throughout the week and were not available for the game. This is nothing to be worried about, as players are typically cautious with their injury management at the Senior Bowl. While several players did not play in the Senior Bowl itself, the week of practices leading up to the game can be just as, if not more, important.
Let’s start with taking a look at players who helped their draft stock the most this week and how some could fit in well with the Chiefs.
