Former Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee is taking advantage of every opportunity to perform in front of pro scouts. This week, Lee is competing in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. 

Lee was a late addition after Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph withdrew because of a foot injury. 

Lee is on the same North squad as highly-projected NFL Draft picks Josh Allen & Baker Mayfield. 

"I see this week as a great opportunity to show that I belong," Lee said. "I have a set of skills that belong in this draft and I'm just looking forward to going out and playing and I'm confident in that. So it's going to be a lot of fun.

The Louisiana native hopes he impresses enough that he will be drafted last this year.

"That'll be the next opportunity I'm looking forward to making the most out of," said Lee. "Wherever that may be, when and where it doesn't really matter. I'm just looking forward to getting on a team and playing ball."

Saturday's Senior Bowl starts at 1:30 p.m. on NFL Network.
