The Senior Bowl Just Got More Crimson
As first reported by Charlie Potter at On3 Sports, Alabama sack artist Chris Braswell has accepted an invitation to play in the 2024 Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile next month.
Braswell makes three Crimson Tide players to accept an invite to play in the upcoming all-star game for seniors and declared juniors. Played for years in historic Ladd Stadium, the contest now takes place at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama.
Other former Bama players who are playing the game and practicing before a multitudeof NFL scouts are kicker Will Reichard and defensive lineman Justin Eboigbe, who accepted bids last month.
Braswell played in all 14 games last season and started two, as he was the Tide’s starting Jack linebacker. He compiled career-highs in tackles (42), tackles for loss (10.5), sacks (8.0), forced fumbles (3) and interceptions (1). Braswell ranked fifth in the SEC in sacks in 2023.
Besides Braswell, other Alabama players selected to the Senior Bowl’s preseason watch list Trey Amos, Jermaine Burton, Justin Ebogibe, Trezmen Marshall, Jase McClellan, Seth McLaughlin, Malachi Moore, Tim Smith and Roydell Williams.
Amos, Smith, Williams and Moore are returning to Bama for a final season.
The Senior Bowl is the longest continual-running all-star game. It has taken place in Mobile the last 74 years. More than 900 NFL personnel, including key decision-makers from all 32 teams, and over 1,100 media members from around the country were credentialed last year.
In each of the past three years, the Senior Bowl has had 100 or more players drafted and over 40 percent of the draft class, which are both record-setting figures for any all-star game. That's not expected to change this year.
