Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott wants to go to Dallas or Chicago.
Since Peyton Manning arrived in Denver four years ago, the Broncos have consistently been a Super Bowl contender. But unlike Denver's Super Bowl run two years ago, which was mainly orchestrated by Manning and a juggernaut offense, the Broncos are the AFC champions largely due to a suffocating defense and roster built with balance.
Hitting on top-10 picks like Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly gave Carolina a foundation on both sides of the ball, but with twice as many undrafted free agents (18) as first-round picks (nine) on the current roster, General Manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Ron Rivera have led the Panthers on an unconventional route to Super Bowl 50.
Noah Spence, Jarran Reed, Sheldon Rankins and Vernon Butler are among the other Senior Bowl participants surging up the board.
For a number of reasons on and off the field, Johnny Manziel is on his way out in Cleveland. And although North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz has some question marks as well, they aren't in the areas that have derailed Johnny Football's NFL career.
Just like in the daily practices during the week, the main storyline in the 2016 Senior Bowl game was the dominance of defensive linemen, led by Eastern Kentucky edge rusher Noah Spence.
NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst Rob Rang left Mobile with one thing he did not take to the Senior Bowl -- a powerful conviction that North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz is a potential top-five pick. The real standouts in the all-star game practices were in the trenches, where a trio of defensive tackles -- Alabama's Jarran Reed, Louisville's Sheldon Rankins and Louisiana Tech's Vernon Butler -- made a lasting impression on scouts.
Hundreds of NFL personnel watched 'small school' prospects rise to challenge this week. But for some of the well-known SEC, Big 12 and Pac-12 prospects, only a few scouts will stick around to watch Saturday's game.
The defensive line prospects have been dominant during Senior Bowl practices this week, but on Thursday, the North offensive line fired back and showed some life.
While splashy skill position players like Carson Wentz, Braxton Miller and Leonte Carroo are generating the media attention, the disruptive play of the North's defensive linemen was the real story during Wednesday's practice.
