Happy Senior Bowl Day! QBs to Watch, Top Practice Players, Possible Bears Targets, and More

Chicago Bears

Senior Bowl Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s an afternoon in which I square away time to square up prospects, identify potential Bears fits, and ultimately watch the last bit of college football this season has to offer.

Even in a year with so much uncertainty, it’s good to see Senior Bowl week go off as scheduled. So what are we in for today? Let’s dive in!
