With only a day to go till the 2014 Senior Bowl kicks off, two players from Utah State University have been called up to play in the game. 

Center Tyler Larsen and cornerback Nevin Lawson have travelled to Mobile, Alabama today ready to showcase their talents in front of assorted NFL scouts and coaches. The two will be looking to make an impression as they are set to leave college. 

Larsen, a 6-4, 312-pound senior offensive center was named a second-team All-American by USA Today Sports during his senior season to become just the 12th player in school history to be named a first or second team All-American. He was also one of the six finalists for the Rimmington Trophy, an award given out to the best center in all of college football. 

Larsen finished his Utah State career starting 52 consecutive games, a school record, and ranks third in the nation among active players.

Lawson, a 5-10, 186-pounder was named a third-team All-American by College Sports Madness and received first-team all-Mountain West honors following his senior season. 

He played in last weeks East/West Shrine Game and played well enough to be picked for the Senior Bowl. In the game he recorded 3 tackles - one for a loss - a pass breakup and returned a fumble for a five-yard touchdown. 

This is the 58th edition of the Senior Bowl and includes some talented players expected to go high in this years NFL draft. QB Derek Carr and OLB Kyle Van Noy are both expected to be first round picks.
