The Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day won't be the last collegiate game for many Georgia Bulldogs, as several have been invited to participate in postseason all-star games, as Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald reports.

The most notable all-star game for many players is the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., where many NFL scouts and coaches will be to evaluate players' draft prospects. Bulldogs headed to Mobile are nose guard John Jenkins, safeties Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams and receiver Tavarres King. The Senior Bowl takes place on Jan. 26 and will be televised by the NFL Network.

They aren't the only members of Georgia's stacked defense who will get to showcase their talents. Cornerbacks Sanders Commings and Branden Smith will play in the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla.; linebacker Cornelius Washington and defensive end Abry Jones will play in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star game on Jan. 11 in Tucson, Ariz.; linebacker Mike Gilliard and running back Richard Samuel have been selected to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 19 in Carson, Calif,; and linebacker Christian Robinson will play in the Raycom Bowl on Jan. 19 in Montgomery, Ala.

King said he was happy to be playing in the prestigious Senior Bowl:

"It is a big deal," King said. "I'm blessed to have the opportunity to play in that game and showcase my talents and get my name out there."
