Keeping up with UConn's all-star participants
Beginning with the College Gridiron Showcase, which ends today in Texas and wrapping up with the Jan. 28 Senior Bowl, six UConn products will get the chance to work out in front of pro scouts.
Offensive tackle Andreas Knappe and kicker Bobby Puyol are taking part in the College Gridiron Showcase which isn't really an all-star game as much it is a series of scrimmages. You can check out streams of the practices on the event's official site.
Quarterback Garrett Anderson and cornerback Jhavon Williams will play in the Tropical Bowl on Jan. 15 in Daytona Beach, Florida. On Jan. 21, Knappe and receiver Noel Thomas will take part in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the StubHub Center and safety Obi Melifonwu is playing in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 28. (I hope I caught all of the games because new ones tend to pop up every now and then).
