NFLPA star game underway in LA … The all-star game process gets underway in earnest this week with practices set to begin on Tuesday in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. This will be the 11th rendition of NFLPA game which will played on Saturday, January 28th at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Los Angeles. The actual game will be broadcast on NFL Network with kickoff scheduled for 6 PM ET on Saturday. The two teams will be coached by a couple of Tennessee alums in former Titans’ head coach Jeff Fisher and long-time star RB Eddie George who is now the HC at Tennessee State. And there’ll be plenty of star power working on the sidelines as the assistant coaching staffs include HOF OT Jackie Slater, LB Keith Bulluck, another former Titan, and former Giants’ RB Brandon Jacobs and OG Rich Seubert, while Seattle WR Tyler Lockett is serving as a coaching intern.

Unfortunately, the NFLPA still doesn’t get the talent that goes to the Senior Bowl or Shrine game. However, they do have several QBs that folks will be familiar with including Malik Cunningham of Louisville, Penn State’s Sean Clifford, and Adrian Martinez of Kansas State. Meanwhile, some of the players pro scouts do want see along with Cunningham include Clemson WR Joseph Ngata, Louisiana RB Chris Smith, Syracuse LB Mikel Jones, Kent State S Nico Bolden, and Fresno State DE David Perales, while the game’s small school contingent includes QB Lindsey Scott of Incarnate Wood, Shepherd RB Ronnie Brown, Jackson State CB Isaiah Bolden, Sacramento State LB Marte Mapu and Wagner DE Titus Leo. Here are the full rosters for the two teams.
