The world has changed significantly in the last few weeks as the coronavirus has ground daily life — and especially sports — to a screeching halt.

The attention around the NFL has turned toward South Beach and the highly anticipated upcoming Super Bowl but for those teams not involved in the big game, it's all about decompressing from a week in Mobile and digesting all that happened at the Senior Bowl. It was a fascinating week for many top prospects and more than a few could be moving up and down boards as a result.

It's a busy time on the NFL calendar despite the limited number of games on the docket. College football has wrapped and underclassmen have all declared for the draft while we're down to just two teams battling it out for the Lombardi Trophy. As most of the attention will now turn toward Miami and the (super) festivities in South Beach, 30 other franchises are focused much more on the Senior Bowl and sorting out which prospects can make the cut for their boards.

The 2013 NFL Draft is in the books.

In fact, a select few have already been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the possibility of more to come.
