My All-Senior Bowl (practice) team


I was totally unimpressed with O'Dowd, he reminded me of Justin Hartwig, needed a backup alarm. John Moffit has played OC, how about a revamp list making Moffit the Center, and giving another lineman the OG spot?  I missed Gabe Carimi playing guard, NFL network coverrage is wearing thin on me, too much Stacey Dales, and not enough live action for my taste.

To me the most amazing story is Jason Watkins, only 4 years of football. Then John D'Allesandros moves him to OG and he shines, pretty special kid no doubt.  The thing is that sure he will be 27 in September, but if you sign him, you get him in the prime of his football life, ages 27-30, assuming he gets a standard second round contract.  Also, he has a lot less miles on him, that may off-set the age concern.
