    2009 Senior Bowl Articles-Notes-Observations

    Anyone else been watching this in the evenings?


    http://www.seniorbowl.com/

    There were 82 players in last year's Senior Bowl that were drafted by NFL teams.
    Eleven of those players were selected in the first round.
    This is the time when several players start to emerge in the eyes of scouts and improve their draft stock.
    Others fall down the board
    Others to watch on the North squad include Center Max Unger (Oregon) who is reported to be very good in the zone blocking scheme, and B.J. Raji, the big defensive tackle from Boston College who's name you can find on most top 10-15 lists.

    Some real intereting kids out there (Lots of Trojans by the way), some of which a few on here have touted up as solutions to our problems.....


    Max Unger C

    Struggled with strength as he was jolted and driven backward numerous times by Raji and Ron Brace. Did not look like he is strong enough to handle NFL defensive tackles.

    Pat White from West Virginia looked good.
    Heard a interview with him on "Moving the Chains".
    Not as articulate as one would want, however, he sure can throw a ball and that was really evident yesterday as the other QB's struggled with the wind but his were spot on and didn't seem to be affected.

    Another key note that Kirwan brought out, alot of the QB's struggled with establishing timing with the recievers in the short time they have had to work with them but he didn't, mostly because of how fast he got rid of the ball and the zip behind it.


    Maybe his arm strength isn't as bad as some contend give those two points....By the By, he is working out with the same "Prep" organization that Flacco worked out with last year.

    Hahahaha. I would laugh so hard if we drafted him. We would have 2 of the most athletic QBs in the league, which would open up a lot of options in the playbook, that Childress would choose not to conjure up.

    The fear gearing a scheme around an athletic QB arises because he's more susceptible to injury, and NFL teams generally only have 1 athletic QB.

    Childress would just be setting himself up to prove he's a failure. Although I do like that idea.

    Damn school is stopping me from watching the practises this week, so hopefully I actually get to watch the game on the weekend.
    From what I have seen, the group as a whole looks fantastic. I have not learnt too many names yet, so I cannot really go hardcore into talking about the prospects.

    I like Pat White. Saw an interview with him and he wants to play quarterback, even though the scouts are tagging him as a guy who will play out of the slot as a WR if he wants to play in the big leagues.
    We're bringing purple back.

    You know, I haven't checked.
    I will tonight though....

    The guys on Sirius "Moving the Chains" are out there watching the practices.
    They have been interviewing alot of the cats that are participating as well as the coaches/scoutes/staffs that are out there watching as well.

    Chiller was on last night......Kirwan asked him what positions/players they were looking at.
    The Chiller went into a long dissertation about it but basically said they had held personnal interviews with all 60 participants so far.

    Good thing about NFLN, they will re-air all of them over and over.
    Its cool cause you get to listen to the coaches actually working with the players.
    Very informative.....

    Tice was miched up and then did a "after practice" interview with Mayock and crew......

    Two things,,,,,

    1.
    Lets not turn this into a "I hate Chiller thread" but rather lets just focus on what the talent looks like on the field and if any of them would fit the scheme based on what we are watching, have seen or know about the kids.

    2.
    Pat White.
    Watched him again last night. Damn he throws a nice ball.
    Seems to be a bit small though.

    [size=15pt]Senior Bowl: Versatility the selling point for Cincinnati's Barwin[/size]

    Some NFL teams who use a 3-4 base defense might be drawn to Connor Barwin as a potential outside linebacker. Others might see him as a defensive end. The case also can be made for him as a tight end.
    Suffice it to say that coaches and scouts will see one extraordinarily versatile athlete when Barwin showcases his abilities in Saturday's Senior Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...-preview_N.htm

    I watched with interest yesterday as this kid ran back and forth between TE's and DE's taking reps/getting coached by the NFL scouts.

    It is amazing to see someone do that considering that alot of these players struggle with some of the stuff the NFL coaches are trying to implant in thier heads.

    If the Vikes don't resign Sauce (I sure hope they do) this cat sure would be a nice signing IMHO based on what I've seen the last few days.

    Anyone know of him or have watched him play?

    [size=20pt]Iglesias, Butler shine on Day 3[/size]

    Although Laurinaitis projects himself as a fierce competitor, he's not here to compete with USC's linebackers, and scouts are wondering whether he has something to hide.
    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft...3fid%3d3849760

    Last year all we heard was how great this kid is.
    Now we are hearing alot of stuff that he isn't gonna project well to the next level.

    Anyone know whats up with him?
    Looks like he might have lost some money by staying at the collegiate level one more year.
