MOBILE, Ala. - Former Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo got a big boost to his NFL Draft chances on Friday when the Walter Payton Award winner was picked to fill the final quarterback spot for this year's Reese's Senior Bowl.  It will be a chance for Garoppolo to play in front of NFL scouts and coaches for an entire week leading up to the game on January 25th in Mobile, Ala.
