RE: Why hasn't JJ Nelson been invited to the Senior Bowl
In former times, the Senior Bowl was a Mobile event and UAB players were usually passed over. Now it is run by the NFL so if a UAB player is not invited, it's because the NFL scouts didn't want to bring him in. While the game is all we see as fans, it is said the scouts do their work during the practice sessions and may not even stay around to see the game itself. Now that the NFL has its "combines", J.J. is probably not too upset since he won't risk injury in a game that isn't all that important to his future.
