Special Teams

How does the NFLPA Bowl select their players?

The NFPLA Collegiate Bowl was formed in 2012, replacing the Texas vs. The Nation college football all-star game that had run since 2007. Rather than being “just a game,” the NFLPA Bowl is a week-long showcase that prepares NFL Draft prospects for what to expect not only from the process but for what comes after.

A key part of the Collegiate Bowl is the representation by the NFLPA. The National Football League Players Association is the official union of NFL players. Their involvement in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl is one of the factors that sets it apart from other postseason events. The NFLPA Universities program helps prospects familiarize themselves with the business side of the step up to the NFL.

Although the first edition of the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl allowed draft-eligible underclassmen onto its rosters, every year since the inaugural event has been strictly limited to senior players. Players who accept their invites to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl are separated into two teams: National and American.

Current or former NFL coaches coach those two teams. Marvin Lewis and Jeff Fisher — who bring years of experience to the table — will coach the 2022 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl teams. They’ll lead two squads of players invited from the NFLPA Bowl Big Board, which is compiled by its team of scouts, led by Dane Vandernat and Ric Serritella.
