Senior Bowl week has begun.
The Reese's Senior Bowl is the annual college all-star game held in Mobile, Alabama. The contest is played Saturday at 1:30 p.m. CT, but the real value for the Texans and the other 31 NFL teams is in the interviews and practices.
Practice starts Tuesday at 11:30 a.m., but NFL Draft hopefuls have started arriving and informally interviewing with NFL teams. Background information is gathered in these sessions, as players huddle with representatives from NFL teams to provide more information and meet face-to-face with key decision-makers.
Many from Houston's scouting and personnel departments are in Mobile and already gathering more information on the prospects.
In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Texans selected five players. WR Nico Collins was a third-round pick for Houston, and he was in Mobile for the Senior Bowl week last winter. Collins, however, didn't play in the actual game. In 2020, DE Jonathan Greenard and OL Charlie Heck were both Senior Bowlers.
Texans Team Analyst and Radio Sideline Reporter John Harris is in Mobile as well. He'll provide practice coverage throughout the week.
