Each and every year, college football holds a postseason All-Star game featuring the best talent from around the country. The top players in the nation play in the Senior Bowl in front of NFL coaches in order to help get recognized for the upcoming NFL Draft.

Another tradition of the Senior Bowl is the opportunity for several NFL coaches to run the Senior Bowl squads, and get a closer look at the incoming pro football talent.

One Las Vegas Raiders coach has been named to a special role at the 2023 Senior Bowl.

Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham will operate as the head coach of the National team at this year's festivities.

One wrinkle to the 2023 edition of this event is the use of multiple coaching staffs. Instead of one team's staff working the event, several NFL assistants were called to lead the teams.

It wasn't exactly a career year for Graham and his defense. In his first year as defensive coordintor, the Raiders allowed the seventh most points and fifth most yards per game to opposing offenses. Either way, he'll get a chance at scouting the next defensive standout on his roster. The Raiders select No. 7 in the first round of the 2023 Draft.

The Senior Bowl will take place on Feb. 4, the week before Super Bowl 57, at University of South Alabama's Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile.
