Two South Alabama Jaguars were among 14 Sun Belt players to be named to the Senior Bowl’s watch list that was released on Tuesday.

Romelle Jones, a 6’2″ 280-pound defensive lineman from New Orleans, and Enrique Williams, a 6′ 235-pound linebacker from Mobile’s Blount High School, were announced to be on the Senior Bowl’s watch list.

Jones was credited with 18 tackles last season with 11 of them being solo and two of them were behind the line of scrimmage. For his career he has 70 total tackles, 41 solo, 19 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, two pass deflections, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries. Last season Jones was hampered by a nagging injury.

Williams was the Jaguars number two tackler last season with 105 total tackles, 50 solo tackles, six tackles for loss, a pass deflection, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. During his career he has 239 total tackles, 114 solo tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, eight pass deflections, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and an interception.

South Alabama has had three players selected for the Senior Bowl. Courtney Smith was the first to be selected and played in the 2011 game. Last season Jake Johnson was a late add but tore his achilles on the first day of practice and was unable to participate in the game. B.J. Scott was another late add at defensive back and participated in the game.

The 12 players from the rest of the Sun Belt are: Arkansas State had defensive tackle Ryan Carrethers and running back David Oku; Georgia State had wide receiver Albert Wilson; Louisiana-Lafayette had wide receiver Darryl Surgent; Louisiana-Monroe had the most named to the watch list with quarterback Kolton Browning, wide receiver Je’Ron Hamm and wide receiver Tavarese Maye; Texas State had defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey; Troy had quarterback Corey Robinson; Western Kentucky had running back Antonio Andrews and inside linebacker Andrew Jackson.

The Senior Bowl is scheduled for January 25, 2014 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium and will be televised by the NFL Network.
