Michigan offensive tackle Mason Cole has one final game in a Michigan uniform, but that final game will not be his last chance to impress scouts before the NFL Combine.

Michigan football’s Twitter account tweeted Thursday morning that Cole accepted his invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

The Senior Bowl features college seniors showcasing their skills and abilities one last time before the NFL Combine.

Michigan linebacker Mike McCray accepted his invitation back in November.

This will be a great chance for Cole to show off his versatility. He has started every game he has ever played and was the first lineman in Michigan history to begin his true freshman season as a starter on the offensive line. He played tackle his sophomore and senior seasons, but primarily played center last season as a junior. Center, or another interior position, is probably where Cole will make his money in the NFL.

The Senior Bowl takes place in Mobile, Alabama on Saturday, Jan. 27 and is aired on NFL Network. A full list of the playing rules can be found by clicking here.
