Officials from the Senior Bowl say they've begun inviting players to their annual all-star game.
Marshall defensive end Vinny Curry may have been the first to accept the invitiation.
According to multiple news outlets, the 6-3, 263 pound Nagurski, Bednarik and Lombardi Trophy candidate was invited and plans to participate in the senior all-star game, widely viewed as the elite game of its kind.
Curry is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 8 defensive end due to questions about his level of competition and fit at the next level. His statistics are undeniable. Curry has 53 tackles and ranks second in the country with 18 tackles for loss. He also recorded 10.5 sacks and is tied for the national lead with six forced fumbles.
There have been reports that the Senior Bowl had invited Miami outside linebacker Sean Spence, as well, though Senior Bowl spokesman Kevin McDermond told Susan Miller Degnan of the Miami Herald on Saturday that has the committee in charge had “not invited the Miami guys yet, but I anticipate we certainly will.’’
