Feeney to play in 2017 Senior Bowl

Dan Feeney is going bowling.

The Indiana right guard has accepted an invitation to play in the 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the game announced Monday. The Senior Bowl is a showcase game for some of the nation’s top NFL talent who have exhausted their college eligibility.

It will be played on Jan. 28 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. NFL Network will televise the game at 2:30 p.m.

Feeney is the top NFL Draft prospect on IU’s current team, having allowed only two sacks across 3,201 snaps spanning 44 career games. Recently he’s expanded his profile by playing increasingly more often at right tackle, where he’s started each of the last three weeks.

Feeney, a consensus preseason first team All-American, missed four games earlier this season due to a concussion suffered on Sept. 10. Gradually, he’s returned to form as one of the top linemen nationally. During the off-season ESPN recognized Feeney as the 37th-best player in the country.

  1. Congratulations to Dan! He didn’t have to return for this year, and most likely he would be on a pro team right now if he had chosen to leave after last season. Instead, he decided to come back and try to lead his team to a great season. I really felt bad for him when he was sidelined with concussion symptoms and there is no doubt that his injury, coupled with the injury to Camiel and then Knight, really hurt this team. Playing in the Senior Bowl should help Dan impress the pro scouts and I am really glad he has been selected for this honor.

  2. It is great news Dan will play in this game as college coaches and scouts get a close look at how players practice. He will go up against the best players in the country one on one and coaches will get to see how he matches up. I am sure he will meet the challenge to dominate who he goes against just as he has against top B1G players.
