Latest Nfl Draft
Scouts value Senior Bowl practices more than the contest itself, but don't fool yourself -- talent evaluators want to see players perform well in the game too. Here are 10 who have scouts talking ... for better or worse.
The game isn't until Saturday, but several Senior Bowl prospects boosted their draft stock and helped themselves during daily practices this week in Mobile, Ala.
Bryce Petty said at the Senior Bowl that he feels he could (or should) be the first quarterback off the board in this year's draft.
Give the big guys credit -- Danny Shelton, Owamagbe Odighizuwa and Nate Orchard arrived at the Senior Bowl with something to prove, and they succeeded.
A year ago, former TCU cornerback Jason Verrett was unable to participate in Mobile due to his injured shoulder, but he was still a first round draft pick. This year, Kevin White entered the week without much buzz, but he leaves Mobile as the talk of the town.
Orchard culminated an impressive week of practice with big plays against the run and pass, alike, proving in the North's final 'important' day of practice that he is much more than just a pass-rusher. Orchard wasn't the only player to impress, however.
Among the South team's standouts Wednesday were LSU's La'el Collins, Oklahoma's Daryl Williams and Georgia Tech's Shaq Mason -- and that was just along the offensive line. The defensive line was even better.
The Miami football program has been mediocre in recent years, but the Hurricanes continue to pump out NFL talent, including Phillip Dorsett, Clive Walford, Denzel Perryman and Ladarius Gunter on the South squad at the Senior Bowl
For scouts, the competition and talent at the line of scrimmage at the Senior Bowl is about as good as it gets. Among the early standouts this week have been Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis and Washington's Danny Shelton. Small-schooler Ali Marpet has also made a name for himself.
Petty has separated himself as the top quarterback on the North squad, but there are still more questions than answers when it comes to the Baylor passer in the NFL
