Senior Bowl 2012: Missouri TE Michael Egnew Will Play In Jan. 28 Game

The 2012 Senior Bowl will be held at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama on January 28. The annual exhibition game gathers top seniors from college teams across the country. The event is an excellent opportunity for the selected players, as this is the final tune-up and chance to shine prior to the 2012 NFL Draft. The two teams in the game will both be presided over by current NFL head coaches, who will bring their full contingent of training, video and equipment staffs to work with the players. In addition, the Senior Bowl will be heavily attended by coaches, general managers, scouts and evaluators who will be watching the seniors live and in person, making mental notes along the way. At least one Missouri player will be one of those lucky players getting an opportunity to impress.

Dave Matter of the Columbia Daily Tribune reported on Tuesday that Michael Egnew of the Missouri Tigers will officially play in this year's Senior Bowl. The announcement came directly from the event, so Mizzou fans can look forward to their school being represented in the game.

Egnew is considered one of the top tight end prospects in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. Mocking the Draft has Egnew listed as the No. 6 tight end in this year's crop of draft-eligibles. The senior was a consensus All-American in 2010, although he flew under the radar for much of the 2011 college football season. The subpar season that the Tigers put together last year ended up on a winning note with an Independence Bowl win and a final 8-5 record, but an appearance in the Senior Bowl might be exactly what Egnew needs to raise his stock in the eyes of the NFL Draft evaluators.
