Deshaun Watson unsure if he’ll play in Senior Bowl

|

The offseason for NFL draft prospects is one of the busiest times of the year. Following a long, grueling season of football and academic obligations, players are then expected to hit the gym harder than ever and excel in a series of showcases for NFL scouts.

It’s a grueling crawl, and in recent years we’ve seen players who are expected to be taken highly be more selective with what they choose to participate in.

Clemson star quarterback Deshaun Watson received an invitation to participate in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Watson, who could do himself a huge favor by playing well in the National Championship, is still unsure if he will participate in the event.

Watson was a favorite to be the first quarterback off the board during preseason speculation, but that has come into doubt as the season has gone on.

Despite being a junior, Watson is eligible for the game because he has already drafted.

The two sides of the Reese’s Senior Bowl are coached by the staff of the NFL’s Bears and Browns. Watson, who would play for the South, would be coached by the Browns coaching staff.

With the Browns holding the first overall pick and the 12th overall pick, face to face meetings and collaboration with the coaching staff might greatly improve his prospects of being take in the first round.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl will be held in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 28 at 2:30 p.m. ET.
