Dayes can do a lot for his draft stock at this event.

The Senior Bowl is one of the biggest events each year for some of the country’s top potential NFL talent. The players get hands on attention from NFL coaches, and they have a chance to make an impression in front of scouts from every team.

Matt Dayes will be one of those kids under the microscope this year, as he has accepted an invite to play in the game. So far, he is the only NC State player confirmed for the game, though it’s not like there are a ton of candidates on the roster. Maybe Dravious Wright or Jack Tocho? Joe Scelfo?

In the past, several NC State players have used a good week at the Senior Bowl to improve their draft stock. Jacoby Brissett did pretty well last year and landed in the third round, and back in the day, Philip Rivers helped to solidify his position as a top-10 pick with a nice performance.
