JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will come face to face with the SEC next week.
That will mean extended time with some of the nation's best players – and extended time with a slew of players expected to be selected in the early rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The 2016 Reese's Senior Bowl announced its rosters on Thursday, with the South team – coached by the Jaguars for a third consecutive season – featuring players from the Southeastern Conference and the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Included in that list are five players from the University of Alabama's national championship team, including outside linebacker Reggie Ragland, who is widely projected a likely first-round draft selection. Other Alabama players on the South team include cornerback Cyrus Jones, quarterback Jake Coker, running back Kenyan Drake and defensive end Jarran Reed.
Other South players considered early round possibilities include inside Louisiana State linebacker Deion Jones, Oklahoma wide receiver Sterling Shepard, Ole Miss inside linebacker Kentrell Brothers, Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, Duke safety Jeremy Cash, Louisiana State cornerback Jalen Mills, Kansas guard Cody Whitehair, Baylor offensive tackle Spencer Drango, Georgia outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins, Georgia offensive tackle John Theus, Louisiana State offensive tackle Vadal Alexander, Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman, Brigham Young defensive end Bronson Kaufusi, Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence and Louisville defensive end/tackle Sheldon Rankins.
Kansas State tight end Glenn Gronkowski – the younger brother of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowsi – also is on the South team, as are two prospects from the University of Florida: inside linebacker Antonio Morrison and tight end Jake McGee.
