Senior Bowl practices started Tuesday in Mobile, Ala., ahead of Saturday’s game.

Six former Notre Dame players are slated to play for the National Team: quarterback Ian Book, defensive ends Daelin Hayes and Adetokunbo Ogundeji, offensive linemen Aaron Banks and Robert Hainsey and wide receiver Ben Skowronek.

Former Irish left tackle Liam Eichenberg previously accepted an invitation to play in the annual showcase, but he no longer appears on the Senior Bowl roster. It’s unclear why he’s not participating this week.

The NFL prospects were all measured Tuesday morning before the first practices of the week. Here’s a collection of notes and videos gathered from Twitter on the former Notre Dame players.
