Think this could cause him to drop?

Not enough for him to be there in the second round. He is a first-rounder, unless this is a big knee injury.

He should still be able to leap tall buildings

Nothing definite about Paea, but a torn meniscus is a bad thing for a NFL player. Its almost worse than an ACL over time. I tore my first ACL and had zero cartilage damage and that Knee was able to play in nine months. I tore my other knee 4 years later and the meniscus needed cleaning up. Same Doc did the surgery, and he is one of the best in the world, yet the one with meniscus gets aggravated when I over use it. The first one has zero issues, like it never happened.

The meniscus keeps the knee joint from grinding against the bones. It is the reason you see lineman have all these clean up surgeries and short term issues with their knees. It certainly is not career threatening by itself, but it means you have to play with discomfort more often than not with all the pounding they put on overstressed frames. I think it will hurt him if he did tear it, but how much? I am not sure as it only takes one team to try anyway.

Tim Tebow (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5096) was a second-round quarterback prospect, but it only took one team to take a shot on his upside, intangibles, and character in the first. Richard Quinn (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5315) was a mid-round prospect, but it only took team to draft him the second.

Now, Josh McDaniels may have two of the most recent and memorable reaches (and a new job because of them), but other teams fall in love as well. Darrius Heyward-Bey (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5093), Tyson Alualu (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5873), and Tyson Jackson (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5222) all were intriguing prospects who intrigued one team more than anyone thought possible. When it comes to Jake Locker (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6424) (QB Washington), Noel Devine (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6520) (RB West Virginia), and Nate Solder (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6517) (OT Colorado) among others, they might not impress every team, but just remember: it only takes one.

Five Positives and Negatives From Senior Bowl Practices Day Three:

1) Bilal Powell (RB Lousiville) is generating some buzz among scouts, media, fans, and teammates. One person referred to him as, "a lot like Michael Turner (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=2641)." Powell's character was described as "More Christian than Tim Tebow (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5096)." With that kind of athletic and character profile, he's going to rise up draft boards. On the field, Powell took more than one rushing attempt to the house and proved he can handle pass protection.

2) Austin Pettis (WR Boise State is a better all-around receiver than I've given him credit for. He is tough over the middle and has just enough speed to take short routes the distance. He is consistently making plays. Dwayne Harris (WR East Carolina), Titus Young (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6533) (WR Boise State), and Leonard Hankerson (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6425) (WR Miami) are all niche wide receivers but have proved this week that they have roles and can help a team. None of them is going to be your number one/X wide receiver, but expect some early pro impact from this group because they all have skills.

3) If you read/hear that Von Miller (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6500) (OLB/DE Texas A&M) is a liability in coverage, you're getting bad info. Miller greatly improved his coverage skills this year and is showcasing them at the Senior Bowl. He's an every-down linebacker with nearly unlimited upside. He's a top-10 pick for sure, and some believe Miller could go in the top five -- as high as Denver at number two. Likely, he will go lower, but that is the type of week he is having.

4) Gabe Carimi (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6518) (OT Wisconsin) is having a good week that few are talking about. He's still the same late-first/mid-second guy he's always been, but he's showing the ability to play left tackle as well as taking reps at guard. Derek Sherrod (OT Mississippi State) is who we thought he was. He's not distancing himself from the crowd, but he's clearly the top tackle. DeMarcus Love (OT Arkansas) is playing with a nastiness we didn't see a lot of on tape. He's re-inserting himself into the late-first/early-second conversation.

5) No tight end has blocked better at the second level/in space this week than Lance Kendricks (TE Wisconsin). He simply can't do it "in-line" (that is, block a lineman at the snap), but he's going to help an NFL running back to extra yards. Add that to his impressive pass catching ability, and Kendricks could make some noise in day two of the draft.

1) Allen Bailey (DE/DT Miami) is such a freak athletically that he is a perfect example of the aforementioned "it only takes one" philosophy. However, he just isn't the greatest football player. Bailey doesn't have the violent hands, the bull rush, or the edge rushing ability teams crave. He is a 5-technique and should be drafted right where Kansas City should have drafted Tyson Jackson (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5222)--in the second round.

2) Mason Foster (LB Washington) and Lawrence Wilson (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6214) (LB UConn) had tough morning sessions. In individual drills, neither could move as fast or efficiently as Bengals coaches wanted. Players come to Mobile to get coached up by pro staffs, but it's disconcerting when a player needs that much needling. Both showed up a little better in the teamwork portion of practice but grade out as reserves in the NFL.

3) Greg McElroy (QB Alabama) makes a lot of throws one doesn't expect. It's as if he lulls the crowd into low expectations just to exceed them. His biggest con is a lack of ideal arm strength combined with small hands. McElroy rears back and nearly shotputs the ball. Many times it results in an incompletion, but once in a while, it's a touchdown. The best part about McElroy is that he doesn't take stupid chances. He's proved he can make a roster this week, but he's also proved he'll never be a long-term starter in the NFL.

4) James Brewer (OL Indiana) has been beaten every way possible by just about every North defensive lineman. I've seen him bull-rushed into the passer, run around, crossed over inside, and confused at the second level. He's such a physical specimen and has a perfect frame, but he's not making an immediate impact and shouldn't go anywhere near the draft slot old teammate Rodger Saffold (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=5856) did.

5) Courtney Smith (WR South Alabama) was a great redemption story when he was asked to attend as an injury replacement. He's a local kid (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/features/column.aspx?sport=NFL&columnid=203&articleid=37249#) who has fans watching him in Mobile. After a great first day, he's fallen off the map and has plenty of red flags--character, academics, etc. Early talk was 5th/6th round upside guy. Now, it's not a lock that he'll be drafted.

nice post OU, was nice to finally see some in depth senior bowl coverage,

140 characters in tweets may be good for somethings, but draft coverage not so much.

According to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, Oregon State DT Stephen Paea (knee scope) still has a chance to participate in February's Combine.

Mayock confirms that Paea's lateral meniscus surgery "was not major," and at the very least it appears he'll be 100 percent by the Beavers' Pro Day this spring. It's great news for the potential late first-round selection.

LSU CB Patrick Peterson made an appearance at the Senior Bowl this week, and told folks in Mobile that he'll run a sub-4.3 forty at February's Combine.

Peterson obviously can't participate because he's an underclassman, but he touched base with scouts and personnel types. Listed at 6'1/222 as a collegiate, Peterson also says he's down to 211 pounds. There was concern Peterson might be unable to stay at corner at his listed weight. Regardless, a sub-4.3 forty at 6'1/211 would be freakish for the surefire top-five pick.

I had surgeery for a torn meniscus and ran a 10K trail race about a month later and went on a ten day heli-hiking trip 6 weeks later. Had the surgery ten years ago now and can't really remember which knee it was, and I work my legs pretty hard. This should be no factor with him unless it was a huge tear and they have to remove a large amount of the meniscus resulting in a bone on bone situation.

That's great to hear it would be awesome if we could get Dareus and Paea and maybe Jones the MLB it would infuse the defense with good talented youth and if we add a few FA's the defense would be head and shoulders above anything we've seen in a long while
