2014 Senior Bowl: Running back weigh ins


Just Blog Baby will be keeping track of all the events surrounding the 2014 Senior Bowl. For more Senior Bowl coverage check out our flagship site Fansided.com. 

Monday marks the first day of official Senior Bowl events at Mobile, Alabama as 2014 NFL Draft prospects look to improve their draft stock at the Senior Bowl. Although big names often opt to not attend, even ones that should (Looking at you AJ McCarron), the Senior Bowl offers a good chance to look at a wide variety of prospects before the NFL Combine.

The Senior Bowl’s first big event is the weigh ins of the prospects, and while it may or may not be a tad overrated obsessing over the weights and heights of prospects it is something that can make or break a prospects draft value. Not enough height at certain positions can be a killer, as can not enough weight at others. Like it or not, it is apart of the draft process and is something that NFL scouts and front offices value.

Most of the notable running backs are skipping the Senior Bowl, so this group will be really eager to make a name for themselves with solid performances at practice and in the game itself.

Following are the official weigh in results for running backs courtesy of Fansided.com
