The Senior Bowl has released its first-ever preseason watch list. There are 312 players on the list, including defensive back Demetrius McCray of

Appalachian State. McCray has been named a preseason All-America by The Sports Network, the College Sports Journal and the College Sporting News.
McCray returns as the starter at right cornerback for the Mountaineers this season. In his first season as a full-time starter last fall, McCray led the Southern Conference with five interceptions and tied for 12th nationally with 14 total passes defended.
Joining McCray on that list are wide receiver Aaron Mellette of Elon and defensive tackle Brent Russell of Georgia Southern. Also making that list was quarterback John Richt of Mars Hill College, a Division II school and a member of the South Atlantic Conference.
The University of North Carolina had six players on that list; Tennessee had five. Alabama, Georgia and Nebraska each had nine players apiece on that list. The Southeastern Conference had 71 players; the Atlantic Coast Conference had 43.
The Senior Bowl will be played Saturday, January 26, 2013 in Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The game will be nationally televised by the NFL Network.
