Senior Bowl eyes 21 American Athletic Conference Players

The annual game in Mobile, Alabama will be played on January 24, 2015. Invitations will be sent out throughout the season.

'Tis the season of college football watch lists — but this one might actually have some legitimate clout.

The Senior Bowl — the annual showcase game for the best seniors and NFL-bound underclassmen in the nation — released a 350-man watch list this week. The typically ballyhooed names were on it: — Mariota, Hundley, 75 SEC players — but 21 players from the American Athletic Conference were also recognized.

The importance of the Senior Bowl's list — compared to those of the Manning or Thorpe award — is that it is a viable parsing of college football's best talent ahead of the college football season and the 2015 NFL Draft, the latter of which has made the Senior Bowl a critical, and highly publicized scouting tool over recent years.

Below are the AAC players who were recognized. Note that inclusion this doesn't guarantee an invitation to the game, just as exclusion from this list doesn't mean a player can't be invited to Mobile.
