When the 2014 Senior Bowl rosters were announced, there were only two quarterbacks on the South Team roster, due to the fact that some players declined their invitation be it because of injury or personal reasons. After a good showing during the East-West Shrine Game practice week, Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been added to the Senior Bowl roster.
