It sure would be nice to see some of the juniors in an all star game, with the amount of them that are ranked so high this year.

Also more importantly, soon we will know who has man boobs this year.

I agree. I wish they would allow Juniors in the new NFLPA bowl, which is the former Texas v. Nation game. That would allow them to get more time for the rosters, but the NCAA does not like the Juniors to play in allstar bowls so we shall see.

The sad thing is that I recall back in the Saban years, this was something I actually looked forward to for finding optimism. I'll watch, but I can't get too excited till the combine and college days. To me the bowls are more about seeing what linemen get beat and exposed. A guy can move up with a good game, but he's got to show it at the combine too or it could be a fluke where he showed up, but some other guys treated the game less seriously.

I disagree. You have to watch to see how players respond to best on best practices. 9 on 7, passing drills, and Lineman 1 on 1's are really telling for players in this game. Also, you have to look to see who can take pro pace practices and coaching. That is why every scout comes for the first 3 days and then over half of them leave.

They are not the end all, be all, but they expose guys who are going to struggle to make the jump mentally at the next level. A large part of the process for evaluating guys who can get it done in their first year or who is going to need time IMHO.

Oh, I agree with that. I just meant the game itself. It's just that casual fans will gloom onto to some guy who has a beast of a game. In past years the prospect profiles at nfl.com by Schram and others pretty much say who really impressed coaches with their senior bowl. If I had the time and tv access, I'd prolly watch practices too.

OK, that makes sense. Did not realize you were talking about the game, the game is not really the showcase, the first three practices in pads are what they really want to see.

http://news.vanderbilt.edu/2005/11/vanderbilt-quarterback-jay-cutler-first-player-named-to-2006-senior-bowl-roster-59157/


Vanderbilt’s electrifying quarterback Jay Cutler, the SEC’s leading passer in 2005 who rewrote the school record book while leading the Commodores to their best season in years, is the first player named to the roster for the 2006 Senior Bowl (http://www.seniorbowl.com/2006/), presented by Food World, bowl officials announced today.

“Jay is not only an outstanding talent and individual, but also one of the most exciting players in all of college football in 2005,” said Senior Bowl media relations director Vic Knight. “He also has a tremendous future at the next level, and we’re very pleased to be able to feature his talents in this year’s Senior Bowl.”

“It’s a great honor to be selected to play, much less be the first player named to the Senior Bowl. To have NFL (http://www.nfl.com/) coaches instructing you and to gain from their experience and have the opportunity to show what you can do is a big plus,” Cutler said. “I owe a lot to my coaches at Vanderbilt who have worked with me to help my progress. I’m also looking forward to the opportunity of playing with and against many of the nation’s best players in the Senior Bowl.”

Cutler will become the first Commodore quarterback to appear in the prestigious Senior Bowl since former Vanderbilt All-American Bill Wade played in 1952. Wade went on to an 11-year NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears.

Cutler led the Southeastern Conference (http://www.secsports.com/) with 3,073 passing yards during a remarkable senior season which saw him set numerous school passing and total offense marks.
He was also the SEC’s leader in touchdown passes with 21 and total offense with 3,288 yards, and had seven games with 275 or more passing yards.

The 6-3, 228-pounder from Santa Claus, Ind., finished his career the holder of 20 different school passing and total offense records, including career marks for total offense with 9,953, touchdown passes with 59, passing yardage with 8,697, and completions with 710.
A semifinalist for both the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award (http://www.daveyobrien.com/) and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm (http://www.goldenarmfoundation.com/index.htm) awards, Cutler threw for 1,071 yards and 12 TD’s in Vandy’s final three games – a 28-24 win over Tennessee and narrow losses to Florida (49-42 in 2 OT’s) and Kentucky (48-43).

Against Florida, he completed 28-42 for 361 yards and four scores in the double overtime thriller as he rallied the Commodores to 21 fourth quarter points to tie the game at 35-35 with just 54 seconds left to play.

He also became the school’s all-time career passing leader during the contest, breaking the former mark set by Greg Zolman from 1998-2001.

Against Kentucky, he set another school single game record with 39 completions, good for 395 yards and school record-tying five touchdowns.

In the upset victory over Tennessee, he was 27-39 for 315 yards and three more scores, the last coming with just 1:11 remaining in the game to give the Commodores their first win over the Vols since 1982. For his efforts, he was also named SEC Offensive Player of the Week.

Cutler grabbed the attention of the college football world early in the 2005 season by engineering Vanderbilt to the school’s first 4-0 start since 1984, which included thrilling victories over Wake Forest, Arkansas and Ole Miss.

A four-year starter for the Commodores who holds the school record for career starts by a quarterback with 45, Cutler threw for 1,844 yards and 10 TD’s as a junior, 2,347 and 18 scores as a sophomore, and 1,433 yards and 10 TD’s as a freshman in 2002 in becoming just the second quarterback in school history to lead the team in passing four different seasons.

According to Andrew Mason, a lot of Broncos coaches and personnel are there, which he says is much different from years past.

My buddies Scott and Shane (NFL Draft Countdown) are there right now, and are doing a lot of player interviews. I might get the nod to help them transcribe some of them, and if I do, I'll be sure to post the links, etc.

It seems like the practices are where it is at. A lot of movement up and down occurs at the practice session. Would love to be able to attend a few of those one day.

Well, not personally, but I was one of the original forum members on his website when it all started and have kept in touch over the years. That is a great forum to discuss draft stuff. A lot of good posters, some "insiders" who pass along good information.

Scott's main job is to evaluate the players. As far as team needs go and what he writes about them, he can sometimes be off. He hasn't hit on anything Broncos relate in a long time really, whether it be the right player or position addressed. I always give him grief for that.

California DE Cameron Jordan was the best all-around defensive lineman - and maybe best player period - for the North team today. He was both quick and strong today and used his hands well to get around the offensive lineman in front of him; in particular, he abused Indiana G/T James Brewer all morning, but did get admonished by the coaches late in practice not to hit the QB. In fact, it was a tough day all-around for Brewer who had trouble with pass-rushers most of the morning. Once into his back-peddle he tends to be off-balance and loses most of his power.

Quinton Carter wins Wooden Cup Award.
<HR style="COLOR: #990000" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->OU's Carter named Coach Wooden Cup winner

University of Oklahoma senior Quinton Carter has made it his mission to change lives. On Tuesday, Carter found it was his own life that had changed.

Carter, a safety from Las Vegas, was announced as the winner of the Coach Wooden Cup, at a ceremony in Atlanta.

The award, named for former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, is regarded as the Heisman Trophy of citizenship and community involvement, though participants from all sports and all divisions of NCAA competition are eligible for nomination. The award committee bills it as going to the most outstanding role model among all college athletes.

"This is kind of my passion, to help people out," Carter told the Tulsa World in December. "I feel like God put me in this position to give back and help others and change others' lives."

Carter is in Mobile, Ala., this week practicing for the Senior Bowl, a showcase for college football players hoping to play professional football.

The award is sponsored by Athletes for a Better World. Other finalists were Kimberly Reeves, a basketball player from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga., Greg McElroy, quarterback at the University of Alabama, Sarah Leyman, a basketball player from Amherst College in Amherst, Mass., and Daniel Crawford, a football player at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.

Carter is the fourth OU athlete to be named finalist, and the second Sooner to win it.

Football players Carl Pendleton (2007) and Jacob Gutierrez (2006) were finalists, and track
sprinter Jackie Dubois won the award in 2006.

Carter's many charitable endeavors include his own foundation, SOUL (Serving Others through Unity and Leadership; ), through which he delivers meals, presents holiday gifts to disabled military veterans, mentors Oklahoma City teens, reads to local elementary school students, runs a free youth football camp in Las Vegas and spends time with a Norman daycare class.

Prior to his senior season at OU, Carter was named to the prestigious AllState Good Works Football Team, an 11-man unit recognized for community involvement by the American Football Coaches Association.

Carter, a three-year starter, isn't just a good Samaritan. He also was a consensus All-Amereican defensive back in 2010, when he ranked third on the team with 96 tackles to go with four interceptions.
