7 running back prospects for the Eagles to watch at the 2023 Senior Bowl


The NFL draft starts in Mobile, and even with the Eagles preparing to face the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII, all eyes this week will be on Alabama, for the 2023 Reese's Senior Bowl.

Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders is an unrestricted free agent and could land a huge deal elsewhere, while Kenneth Gainwell will enter year three.

Boston Scott could move on as well, while Trey Sermon is still under contract.

With kickoff from Mobile just 24 hours away, here are seven running backs to watch at the Senior Bowl on Saturday.

Brown was one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award, which goes to the nation's top running back after finishing third in the nation with 1,643 rushing yards, a total that ranks third in Illinois history behind Mikel Leshoure (1,697 yards in 2010) and Rashard Mendenhall (1,681 in 2007).
