MOBILE — It’s Senior Bowl week in Mobile. Many of the nation’s top college football players have arrived in the Port City.

Hundreds, including NFL scouts, media members and others will be on hand to watch practice sessions that start Monday.

Many players say the annual all-star game gives them a chance to show off their athletic skills and raise their stock in the NFL draft.

Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis will coach the North squad while Jacksonville’s Jack Del Rio will lead the South.

The NFL Network will air Saturday’s Senior Bowl at 6 p.m.
