Running back Brian Robinson and defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis are expected to be full participants for the Senior Bowl. Both have been named to the American Team roster coached by Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions coaching staff. Robert Saleh and the New York Jets will coach the National Team.
