NFL Draft – Senior Bowl Practice: Wednesday AM Analysis
A couple of notes I made after watching the morning broadcast.
- Vincent Brown: Has been a star this week in Mobile, AL. Hadn’t see him prior to the bowl game but he was great and continues to impress. Been showing great hands and fluidity.
- Kendall Hunter: This is a guy I’ve really like since he had a fantastic sophomore year. He is built like the modern rb, 5’7 195, can run the rock and a great blocker. Only concern for me is the injuries, but worth the risk.
- Nate Soldier: Scouts have compared him to Tony Boselli. Did well against Kerrigan in team drills, but not as solid as I would’ve thought given the talk.
- Casey Matthews: For a moment looked just like his brother w/nice spin in 1-on-1, but then quickly showed why he’s not his brother by trying to shake a RB inside of powering through him. While might not be Clay, you can trust the name.
- DeMarco Murray: Not a great blocker but rebounded nicely after struggling early on. Things he excels at are catching the football and running outside. Can’t really make people miss and struggles to run inside, at the next level will struggle like McFadden did his first two years.
- Mason Foster: solid pass rushing vs RBs, high motor as always. Wes Bunting of National Football Post believes he is as solid as a 2nd or 3rd rounder as there will be.
- Greg Jones continues to be knocked by scouts because of his size and lack of quickness. Mike Mayock said that Jones will have to start on ST before becoming a 3-4 ILB starter in the NFL. Jones is one of those guys whose gametape tells you he is a lot better than that and I think he will be a steal in the NFL Draft.
- Gabe Carini: A rock at LT for Wisconsin and the Outland Trophy winner. Could be either a LT or RT but looks capable of being a long-term LT.
- Greg Salas: Slot receiver who caught 1000000 balls at Hawaii has incredible hands.
- Ricky Stanzi was solid again, looking accurate and throwing well on the run.
- Kerrigan was impressive again this time as an OLB, even though solid OT prospect Anthony Constanzo did a good job against him.
- Sadly, Oregon St. DT Paea did not practice yesterday and will undergo surgery to repair lateral meniscus in his right knee. He’s a monster but definite blow to his stock.
