The 2017 Senior Bowl rosters have been released, and they’re littered with SEC talent.
In fact, the SEC leads the charge with 22 players selected for the games, more than any other conference. Of those 22 players, four each hail from Alabama and LSU — and the Crimson Tide’s number would have been higher if it hadn’t been for Jonathan Allen and Reuben Foster’s decline of their own Senior Bowl invitations earlier Wednesday.
Additionally, Texas A&M will have three players in the game; Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Arkansas all will have two players each; and Ole Miss, Florida and Kentucky each have one.
The ACC has the second-most players participating in the game with 20, followed by the Big Ten (14), Pac-12 (9), Big 12 (6), Conference-USA (5), MAC (4), Mountain West (3) and Sun Belt (2). Also, eight players from FCS schools and three players each from independent and Division II schools will participate in the game.
