MOBILE, Ala. — The chaos on the field after an NFL game has nothing on the spectacle that takes place after each Senior Bowl practice.
A confluence of coaches, scouts, front office personnel, media members and agents flock to the grass at Ladd-Peebles Stadium to talk to the players, and all of them have a different agenda.
It’s a truly odd scene that can sometimes feature a reporter competing with a coach for a player’s attention and camera crews trying to tape an interview while some marketing agent lurks in the background.
All the while, Senior Bowl staff members are trying to maintain some semblance of order and shuffle the players off the field and to their team bus, where autograph-seeking fans often await.
Just another day in Mobile.
