Senior Bowl - Day One
QB Tim Tebow of Florida drew incredible attention after his illustrious SEC career. He struggled during the opening workout on Monday in drills with a few fumbles when lining up under center. His delivery is a huge issue and he will have to show progress in his mechanics and adjusting to a pro set to dispel concerns about his pro potential. We will have more over the course of the week.
OG Mike Iupati of Idaho checked in at 6’5” and 325 lbs and is an imposing lineman. He moves well and is a player we project that will move easily into the first round with a strong week here. Safety Taylor Mays of Southern Cal is an imposing athlete who made a huge hit that drew raves from the fans. RB Joique Bell of Wayne St (Mi) checked in at just under 5’11” and 223 lbs. He has the look of a pro runner, but has a lot to prove this week related to ball security, in addition to catching and blocking in a pro set.
LB O’Brien Schofield of Wisconsin was injured when an offensive lineman fell on him during drills. He sustained an ACL injury that will require surgery and end his postseason. It probably jeopardize his 2010 season. He carried a top 100 grade into the Senior Bowl with the possibility of moving into top 50 if he proves he can play up at linebacker in the 3-4 scheme. He played in the East-West game last week and was a player we interviewed and thought he would be one of the rising prospects in this draft class with a good week in Mobile.
DT Terrence Cody of Alabama checked in at 6’4” and 370 lbs. That number probably costs him a top 50 selection unless he can prove otherwise in drills this week. On day one, he was sluggish and slow to counter the initial blocks. WR Jacoby Ford of Clemson checked in at 5’9” and 181 lbs. He was very quick off the line with the burst of speed to separate in coverage. He can hit the home run as a playmaker, but he must prove that he can get off the line vs the bump and run. He will test out very well at the NFL Combine and may be the fastest player in the entire draft class. Safety Nate Allen of South Florida was impressive in both run defense and pass coverage. He moves well and lined up vs the slot receivers and showed cornerback like coverage skills.
