FB John Conner replaces Charles Scott for South

LSU running back Charles Scott failed the physical to participate in the Senior Bowl but because he was in town yesterday was measured by scouts anyway.

To fill his spot on the roster, Kentucky fullback John Conner was added to the South roster. He participated in this afternoon's practice, wearing #32 and sporting a Miami Dolphins helmet.

The Dolphins, of course, are coaching the South...

Conner is among the only true fullbacks worthy of draft consideration. The former walk-on played in a school record 54 games for the Wildcats and is not only a devastating lead blocker, he's an underrated runner and receiver. Considering the use Tony Sparano and his staff got this year out of Lousaka Polite, Conner should get plenty of reps in practice.
