Ok - this is a request going out to our resident football experts that will be watching the Senior Bowl in about an hour.


Who should we be keeping an eye out for in this game tonight?

If you can please give the name, position and YOUR assessment of their Pro's and Con's.

Example
John Smith
DT
Dominates one on one, very strong, big motor plays thru the whistle

Lacks athleticism, weak against double team, tires easily, bad attitude



Thanks guys!

Just turned it on and it's 17-3 South over North...surprised there isn't more input on this game. Most of the best prospects are juniors this year so the Senior Bowl might be a little UTR at the moment.

Greg Jones looks like a solid MLB

Von Miller had a very good game

Phil Taylor the NT out of Baylor looks pretty good, they mentioned off the field issues

Kerrigan, Jordan are both studs

Jones looked far better than Matthews in my opinion

I didn't see Kerrigan in the game since I saw little of it, but I did watch earlier in the week when they were televising practices and drills. He looked slower than I expected off the blocks when going against three projected round 1 OT's. I watched the one-one-one pass blocking drills maybe 20 minutes or so and that was my impression. I'm not sure what to make of that, if anything. The game itself even...there's not much offensive and defensive strategy and it's so vanila it might make you wonder if it's a good gage of how they would perform in a complex NFL scheme. I do remember that Jordan looked good in the drills, not much else of note though.

Bilal Powell led the game in rushing...how'd he look?

I was impressed with what else I have seen from him.

10 carries/50 yards but I didn't really notice him since I missed most of it.

Yeah, I don't think Kerrigan will ever be a guy that puts up 15+ sacks each year. I saw at least one sack, kinda seemed like a fluke sack but looked solid against the run.

I would compare him to Chris Long. Didn't really seem like he had the speed to get to the edge but he looked to me like he could step in and be an above average player.

He has good technique and is plenty quick. He'll probably go somewhere between 20-32. The kid has a motor.

He's a Chris Long clone in my book. If he falls to us at 36 it would be a miracle and we would snatch him up in a heartbeat.

From one mock draft: "Word from the Senior Bowl is that Kerrigan is chiseled from granite, and looks more athletic than previously thought. He's always been known for a tireless motor and high character. Thanks to his 25 sacks over the past 2 seasons, Kerrigan was selected Big10 DPOY over a couple guys named Clayborn and Watt."

The most impressive guy at the Senior Bowl:

Von Miller

Some are saying he could go top 5. I think that's a little high for a guy who will probably play the WLB in the 4-3. But, he's going to be a great player at the next level.

Would we consider him at #2? I hope not...but, if we could trade back a little...I'd be fine with taking a kid with his abilities.

Another kid that looked good was Stocker. He's someone we might be able to get with our 3rd and who could really help us out in the Fox (run first) offense.

From what little we've heard so far, it appears they're looking at a hybrid type defense that lets them capitalize on playing Elvis either in the RDE or the ROLB spot. If we put 248 pound Elvis Dumervil and 237 pound Von Miller on one side, they're going to get run on all day long. Wouldn't drafting a 4-3 weakside LB just defeat the whole point in having Dumervil playing over there in the first place? If he's got his hand on the ground Miller's in the game behind him on passing downs but that's alot of investment in not one, but two undersized guys on one side of the defense, not to mention does he stay on the field on running downs? Whoever they plug in over there, DJ Williams would suffice at the moment since that is his natural position...but whoever it is, he has to be big enough to function in the 4-3 playing behind a guy who is 248 on the line. If we do trade down from #2 and there aren't any of the top linemen available, or Peterson either, then I'm thinking Akeem Ayers game translates better to the NFL. The question I'd have about Miller is whether he might be able to play inside. He's the size of Al Wilson. He could be a nice MLB in the 4-3 maybe. Players in his range are probably people like Cameron Jordan, Stephen Paea, Robert Quinn and Prince Amukamara, plus probably most of the top QB prospects. The Patriots are rumored to be interested in Miller and they have two #1's to work with. Next to Jerrod Mayo and behind that house at NT, he could be something. I'm not sure he'd be as much here though.

If we don't take Peterson early, I think that the Cb from USC - Shareece Wright might be worth a look in rounds 3-4. He will be rough around the edges, but shows some real skill when he is on his assignment.
