While the Senior Bowl will certainly be getting the most attention of all the college All-Star games this month, NFL scouts will be turning their attention to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl tomorrow at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
For those unaware of the All-Star game, it is one that is put on by the NFL Players Association and helps connect draft-eligible prospects to NFL scouts and former NFL coaches and players. This year's game will be the third annual game; the two teams participating, the "National" team coached by former Philadelphia Eagles coach Dick Vermeil, and the "American" team coached by former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green (Yes, that Dennis Green). Alex Neutz will be playing on the American team, where he will also be coached by former Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Andre Reed.
According to the official website of the game, over 80 NFL scouts from all 32 teams will be in attendance. Another notable name in attendance will be ESPN Draft Analyst and College Scout Todd McShay.
Wheels up. Back to LA. NFLPA all-star game all week. Then on to Senior Bowl. Here we go...— Todd McShay (@McShay13) January 12, 2014
This will be a perfect opprotunity for Neutz to showcase his skill set to NFL scouts, and to the likes of McShay.
Neutz will be catching passes from:
- Kenny Guiton, Ohio State
- Sean Schroeder, Hawaii
- Caleb Herring, UNLV
- James Frankllin, Missouri
