With the 7th-overall pick in the 2011 draft…the 49ers could very well select one of the players participating in next week’s Under Armour Senior Bowl. It wouldn’t be out of character for the 49ers, having selected Patrick Willis after he played in the 2007 Senior Bowl, not to mention Mike Iupati and Taylor Mays who played in last year’s game.
That’s why Taylor Price and I will be headed to Mobile, AL this year to bring you as much coverage as possible all throughout the week.
We’ve also created a “Senior Bowl Central” page on 49ers.com, which we will be updating with news, blogs, photos and videos each day during practice. Take a look at the list of players who will be participating. If there are any players, you would like us to talk to and learn more about, let us know in the comments section of this blog or send us a note on Twitter.
Here’s an overview of the week:
Monday: 12:45-4:15 pm PT (North and South squads practice at different stadiums)
Tuesday-Thursday: 7:30-9:00 am PT (North practices at Laad-Peebles Stadium)
Tuesday-Thursday: 10:45-1:15 (South practices at Laad-Peebles Stadium)
Friday: Both teams have a walk-through at the stadium
We will also stay to cover the game on Saturday, January 29 at 1:00 pm PT. The game will be televised on NFL Network.
Stay tuned to 49ers.com!
