2012 Senior Bowl Uniforms: Players Will Be Wearing Slick-Looking Nike Apparel

The 2012 Senior Bowl takes place on Saturday at 4 p.m. wherein the best seniors from around the country will be taking the field in a battle of North v. South in front of NFL scouts. If the players want to impress the NFL shadows, they'll need to play well on the field and it won't hurt that they will be dressed for success in comfortable, slick-looking Nike duds:

The fully integrated uniform system incorporates the latest in performance innovation and design from the world's most renowned athletic outfitter. The redesigned base layer facilitates the uniform's overall innovation, delivering the ultimate in lightweight protection for maximum speed. Strategically placed seams, pads and cooling zones also help minimize distraction and optimize protective coverage.

The uniform delivers lightweight performance and protection as well as enhanced durability and innovation from the inside out. Robust padding without the bulk offers optimal low-profile impact protection specifically throughout the crucial "hit zone" between the knees and shoulders. Padding has also been integrated in the hip and knee areas of the pant for crucial impact protection that stays in place.

The uniform system design also emphasizes improved thermoregulation using fabric selected for its ability to help keep the body cool and wick away sweat – making the uniform, and player, lighter and dryer. The zoned ventilation panels within the jersey and pant are made of four-way stretch mesh that sheds moisture.

NFL Network analyst and former NFL wide receiver Torry Holt is impressed with them and said that the uniforms are "nice uniforms to get busy in right quick." Here's a picture courtesy of JaguarsInsider:
