ESPN’s coverage leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft continues on Wednesday, Jan. 24, and Thursday, Jan. 25, with eight hours of Reese’s Senior Bowl practice coverage, live from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. The annual all-star game featuring top NFL prospects who have completed their college eligibility is headlined this year by Heisman Trophy-winning QB Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) and projected early-first round QB Josh Allen (Wyoming), both suiting up for the North, and DE Marcus Davenport (UT – San Antonio) and OLB Uchenna Nwosu (USC) for the South. A list of top prospects participating can be found here, while complete rosters are available here: North team and South team.

Each year, NFL coaching staffs lead the teams, with the Denver Broncos heading up the North, while the Houston Texans are working with the South this year. Both coaching staffs will be mic’d up for the practices, which will air live on ESPNU both days: North (1:30 – 3:30 p.m. ET) and South (4 – 6 p.m.).

ESPN NFL Draft expert Todd McShay will be live in Mobile, Ala., providing the latest insight into both the prospects and various NFL teams’ talent elevation. Hall of Fame general manager and six-time NFL Executive of the Year Bill Polian, a current ESPN NFL analyst, and NFL front office veteran turned ESPN NFL Front Office Insider Louis Riddick will be onsite also, along with national championship-winning quarterback Greg McElroy, a current ESPN college football analyst.  Chris Cotter will host and Paul Carcaterra will report.
