Nagy wrote, "Building on last year with inaugural HBCU Combine in Mobile, the addition of four HBCU coaches to our staffs, and two HBCU players drafted." Defensive back Joshua Williams (Fayetteville State/Kansas City Chiefs) and offensive lineman Ja'Tyre Carter (Southern/Chicago Bears) were the two HBCU invites drafted in the 2022 NFL Draft. Also, Markquese Bell (Florida A&M) projects to earn a spot on the Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster.
The Reese's Senior Bowl and HBCU Combine are two projects of executive director Jim Nagy that NFL coaches, scouts, and executives will make the annual pilgrimage to Mobile, Alabama. Over the years, they rely on the Senior Bowl to meet and evaluate young talent before the draft.
The twelve young HBCU candidates, depending on their 2022 regular season performances, may receive an invitation, or an additional candidate(s) could elevate into consideration.
