Fresno State running back Robbie Rouse will get a chance to showcase his skills, and improve his draft stock, as he replaces Wisconsin running back Montee Ball at the 2013 Senior Bowl. This is a big deal for Rouse who will need to prove himself since he plays in the Mountain West, which is not at the same level as the Big Ten and other leagues.

Getting the call early in the week is a big deal, because the practices are the most important part of these All-Star games. The game itself is there to wrap a week of individual coaching and teaching, and not a lot more can be taken from All-Star games since these players have only been togetehr for a week.

Rouse will be looking to improve his ranking among running backs as well, as SB Nation's Dan Kadar has the Fresno State back as the No. 16 running back in the 2013 draft class. A good week of practices could vault him up the draft board.
