2012 Senior Bowl: Four Aggies, One Cougar Will Play In Jan. 28 Game

The state of Texas will be well-represented in the 2012 Senior Bowl, one of the most important events for NFL prospects in the pre-draft season.

Four Texas A&M Aggies, RB Cyrus Gray, WR Jeff Fuller, DL Tony Jerod-Eddie and K Randy Bullock, as well as Houston Cougars WR Patrick Edwards, were named to the South team this week.

QB Ryan Tannehill was supposed to participate, but he was ruled out after breaking his foot while training for the NFL Combine.

The Texas Longhorns, A&M's biggest rival on the recruiting trail in the state, will only be sending three players this year, while Baylor, in a sign of how their national profile has risen this year, is sending two players, even though top prospects QB Robert Griffin III and WR Kendall Wright will not be participating.

After a disappointing 7-6 season, Fuller is the only one of the four Aggies rated in the Top 100 in Mocking The Draft's Big Board.

An extremely impressive 6'4 220 athlete, he underachieved as a senior, catching only 70 balls for 828 yards and 6 TD's. The Senior Bowl practices, where he'll be matched up with some of the top CB's in the country, will be a great chance for him to try to boost his draft stock back into the first round.

Gray, Jerod-Edie, Bullock and Edwards are all being talked about as third-day prospects, although their draft stock has the potential to swing rapidly in the next four months, and the Senior Bowl is their first opportunity to impress NFL decision makers since their college careers ended.
