MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — NFL scouts, coaches and prospects have gathered in Mobile, Alabama, for the Senior Bowl.

The game for top senior NFL prospects and junior graduates will feature quarterbacks like Missouri's Drew Lock, West Virginia's Will Grier and Duke's Daniel Jones. Lock's press conference begins at the 28:00 mark:

The North and South teams have weigh-in Tuesday morning, followed by media day and separate practices at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

They'll have a week of practices and interviews with NFL teams trying to prove themselves on and off the field.

Last year's group included No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield and No. 7 selection Josh Allen at quarterback.

Lesser-known players are also trying to enhance their first-round chances. That group includes prolific pass rushers like Louisiana Tech's Jaylon Ferguson and Old Dominion's Oshane Ximines.

The Senior Bowl is basically the all-star game for college football players from the NCAA Division I FBS schools and prospects for the 2019 NFL draft. This year's game will be played on Saturday, Jan. 26 from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala., home of the University of South Alabama.
