The NFLPA 2019 Collegiate Bowl is one of the first post season pre-draft game for the best players in college to perform before NFL teams and their scouts, etc. The game will be held at the Rose Bowl on January 19th at 2:00 PM.

The coaches will be Mike Tice for the National team and Chuck Pagano for the American team. The rest of the staff on both sides is filled with some ex NFL players too.

The rosters are pretty much set but there could be some late modifications.

Some famous alumni from this game are Tarik Cohen, Kelvin Beachum, Jatavis Brown, Shaquill Griffin, Duron Harmon, & Avery Williamson

There are a handful of players that may be of interest to Vikings fans and I will list them here.

A couple of linebackers to watch are ...

Thomas ‘Peyton’ Pelluer LB 6’0” 230 Washinton State

Sione Takitaki LB 6’2” 230 BYU

Some of these players may not get drafted but could be priority free agents to add after the draft. There are some other interesting prospects in this game that I may not have mentioned.

Enjoy the game if you watch.
