BYU LB Sione Takitaki added to Senior Bowl Roster

NCAA Football: Cincinnati at Brigham Young Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Recently graduated BYU linebacker Sione Takitaki got a potential boost to his NFL Draft stock as he was added late Tuesday to the Senior Bowl Roster. He replaced Texas A&M LB Otara Alaka on the South roster.

Takitaki’s invitation comes after a strong week of practice and game performance in last week’s East-West Shrine game.

The Senior Bowl is considered the premier showcase for draft eligible players. Takitaki will be coached by 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers staff.

Practices began Tuesday and continue until Saturday’s game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama. Practices and the game can all be seen on NFL Network.

The game can be seen Saturday, January 26 at 2:30 p.m EST.

Good luck to Sione this week!
