MOBILE (AP) — Quarterbacks at all-star games have tough assignments.

They are asked to control the game after a few practices with teammates and coaches.

Oklahoma’s Landry Jones, North Carolina State’s Mike Glennon and other signal callers will take their shot in Saturday’s Senior Bowl. But they are embracing the challenge like the other all-stars.

Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib says, “It’s a job interview so you’ve got to be ready to go when it’s time to go.”

The quarterbacks have considerable experience. They’ve thrown for an average of 10,000-plus career yards and 71 touchdowns.

Miami, Ohio’s Zac Dysert joins Glennon and Nassib on the North team. Florida State’s EJ Manuel, Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson and Jones lead the South.

Four Senior Bowl QBs went on to become first-round picks the past three years.
