Taylor, Callahan and Van Pelt are all former quarterbacks, and they will have plenty of signal-callers to evaluate as coaches for the South team in Mobile even if Burrow skips the Senior Bowl.
They’ve been assigned Oregon’s Justin Herbert, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts and Colorado’s Steven Montez white the North squad coached by the Detroit Lions staff will include Michigan’s Shea Patterson, Washington State’s Anthony Gordon and Utah State’s Jordan Love.
Players for the South team will get a preview of the Bengals playbook, a West Coast offense that Callahan said bears some similarities to what Burrow ran at LSU.
"We've got a lot of similarities with their pass game. A lot of NFL offenses do," Callahan said. "He ran a lot of elements of what they did in New Orleans. Getting guys in space. Getting people in matchups. You see a lot of pro passing concepts in their offense and they did a really good job. But there are things like that you see around the league. It's all things that fit very well with what we do and a lot of people do."
Players report Monday with practices slated to begin Tuesday.
The game will be held Jan. 25 and telecast by the NFL Network.
Dayton tight end Adam Trautman is also set to be there as part of the North squad while four Ohio State players (Malik Harrison, Jonah Jackson, KJ Hill and DaVon Hamilton) have also accepted invites.
