The Senior Bowl has reportedly looked to Tony Romo’s alma mater to fill out its quarterback roster.
According to Jason Cole of NationalFootballPost.com, Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will attend the Senior Bowl, the top all-star game for NFL draft prospects.
As a senior, Garoppolo (6-3, 222) threw for 5,050 yards with 53 TDs and nine interceptions on 375-of-568 passing.
Garoppolo would seem likely to play for the Senior Bowl’s South squad, which had only two quarterbacks on the roster as of Friday morning.
Garoppolo will also play in Saturday’s East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Senior Bowl practices begin on Monday. The early-week practices are generally well-attended by top NFL personnel, including head coaches and general managers. The game will be held on Saturday, January 25 in Mobile, Alabama.
