The Senior Bowl will, in some cases, be the last opportunity for college football's upperclassmen to improve their stock ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft.
As always, the successes and failures of the players in Mobile, Ala., will go a long way in determining whether they rise or fall in the draft process. Others will use the opportunity to get on teams' radars where they might not have been prior.
Of course, the Senior Bowl comprises more than just the final competition itself. How players take coaching throughout the week leading up to the namesake game will have a big impact on that as well. And, unlike previous seasons, coaches from throughout the NFL will have the opportunity to work with players, as opposed to just two.
With that, The Sporting News breaks down everything you need to know about the 2023 Senior Bowl, including date, time, TV channels, rosters, coaching staffs and more:

NFL staffs coaching the 2023 Senior Bowl
Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy will coach the American Team, while Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham will coach the National Team.
Unlike previous iterations, the Senior Bowl won't feature the coaching staff of only two teams, but patchwork staffs from coaches across the league. At least one coach from each of the 16 teams that submitted nominations were chosen to positions on the Senior Bowl coaching staffs.
This year marks the first time in the Senior Bowl’s rich history that two full staffs from NFL clubs will not be coaching the game. Under a new arrangement to promote professional development, NFL Football Operations has implemented a 'coach up' format where coordinators and assistant coaches are placed into elevated or different roles from the ones they currently hold with their respective clubs.
Head coaches and general managers from all non-playoff teams had the opportunity to nominate assistant coaches and those candidates were then selected by a group comprised of league office executives, representatives from the General Managers Advisory Committee and Senior Bowl leadership.
Six clubs had multiple coaches appointed to this year’s American and National rosters: The Saints, Commanders and Bears led the league with four coaches each, followed by the Raiders (three) and Browns and Steelers (two apiece).
Here are the head coach, offensive and defensive coordinator selections for the American and National teams:
- Head coach: Luke Getsy (Bears OC)
- Offensive Coordinator: Charles London (Falcons QB coach)
- Defensive Coordinator: DeMarcus Covington (Patriots DL coach)
- Head coach: Patrick Graham (Raiders DC)
- Offensive Coordinator: Ronald Curry (Saints QB coach)
- Defensive Coordinator: Grady Brown (Steelers DB coach)
2023 NFL Draft prospects with most to prove at Senior Bowl
Max Duggan, QB, TCU
The final image NFL scouts had of Duggan in the 2022 college football season was his performance against Georgia in the 2023 College Football Playoff championship game. He completed 14 of 22 passes for 152 yards and two interceptions in the contest, and 60 of those yards came on a busted coverage in the Bulldogs secondary.
Duggan has improved his draft stock with a Heisman Trophy campaign that saw him finish second in the voting, but it remains to be seen where he will be taken in the 2023 NFL Draft. A strong showing in Mobile can lock him in as a Day 2 or 3 draft pick.
Kenny McIntosh, RB, Georgia
McIntosh has the chance to be the fourth Georgia running back to be taken by Day of the draft since 2018. The 6-1, 210-pound back doesn't stand out in terms of size or speed, but proved to be a well-rounded offensive weapon for the Bulldogs in 2022.
He led the team with 829 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, adding 505 receiving yards and two more scores. If given the chance to excel, he could prove himself to be a valuable Day 2 pickup as a featured back.
Andre Carter II, EDGE, Army
Carter's entry to the 2023 NFL Draft has been cleared up, but that doesn't mean his draft stock hasn't taken a hit. He was considered by some mocks a potential top-10 pick after a breakout campaign in 2021 in which he registered 14.5 sacks, an interception and four forced fumbles. He had only 3.5 sacks in 2022, and didn't have near the impact as he did in his junior season.
If Carter can have a strong showing in positional drills and in competition against offensive linemen in Mobile, he can show his 2021 campaign wasn't a flash in the pan but the building blocks of a successful NFL career.
