The Eagles love Senior Bowl players.

The 2017 Senior Bowl is just 10 days away, and the official rosters are finally out for our perusal.

You can click through to the North roster here, and the South roster here.

Players will arrive by January 23, and they’ll begin practices the next day. The game itself, the 68th Senior Bowl, is scheduled for January 28 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Al. Kickoff is set for 2:30 ET.

One highlight player? Iowa cornerback Desmond King, who could be an Eagles target in the first two rounds if he’s on the board.

The Eagles have historically loved scouting players at the Senior Bowl, including just last year, when they fell hard for Carson Wentz, who had a stellar week in Mobile. They would eventually execute two separate trades to move up to No. 2 and pick Wentz as their franchise quarterback of the future.

So it would probably behoove you to look over these rosters, mark a few names down, and keep your eyes peeled during practices and the game itself.

Our draft guru Ben Natan will have a Senior Bowl preview, as well as reports on everything going on in Mobile, in the coming weeks, which is very exciting because it means we’re sliding further away from the offseason doldrums and closer to actual things happening!
