Joe Dahl accepts Senior Bowl invite

Washington State left tackle Joe Dahl has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl. The game, which will be held in Mobile, Alabama on Jan. 20, 2016, pits two college football All-Star rosters against each other as the senior players attempt to impress NFL scouts and executives in attendance.

The Senior Bowl has been good to the Cougars in the past, with players such as Deone Bucannon and Marcus Trufant seeing their draft stock rise after good performances. Dahl is widely-considered WSU's best 2016 NFL draft prospect. The left tackle allowed just three sacks in nearly 700 snaps this season. The East-West Shrine Game also invited Dahl, but the WSU senior declined so he could participate in the Senior Bowl.
