2011 NFL Draft Stock Up: Senior Bowl Day 1 Practice
Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego
Vincent Brown showed off his great hands Monday, making several impressive catches. Brown averaged 19.6 yards per reception this year. He might draw some late Round 3 consideration.
Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina
One of the more impressive cornerbacks on Monday was Kendric Burney, who was very sharp in one-on-one drills.
Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
I really liked how Quinton Carter looked in coverage. Mike Mayock agreed, commenting on Carter's fluid hips. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Titus Young, WR, Boise State
Wow. I don't want to overreact to one day of practice, but it's going to be difficult not to. Titus Young was breath-taking on the practice field, blowing by defensive backs at will and breaking ankles with deadly jukes. He looks like a hybrid between DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Down: Senior Bowl Day 1 Practice
Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
Jeremy Beal had no answer for Gabe Carimi in their one-on-one matchup. Several scouts were down on Beal going into the Senior Bowl, and the Oklahoma pass-rusher is not off to a good start.
Mark Herzlich, OLB, Boston College
Mark Herzlich looked great at the weigh-in, but was very slow in coverage. I'm rooting for Herzlich, but he struggled Monday.
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Ryan Kerrigan beat Nate Solder on an inside move in their one-on-one matchup. Kerrigan still has some growing to do (6-4, 255), but seems like a Jaguars-type player, so I doubt he makes it past No. 16.
Stephen Schilling, G, Michigan
Stephen Schilling drew a tough matchup against Cameron Jordan, but Jordan made the Michigan guard look like a helpless child in their one-on-one battle.
I would bet 10 units on both the Packers and Patriots, and then 5 units on the Packers in the Super Bowl. The Packers will obviously blow out the Falcons and Tom Brady is the best QB of all time. They've both won 7 consecutive games (Rodgers and Brady) and they are both unstoppable. Rodgers will obviously throw a touchdown in the final seconds to win the Super Bowl. I would bet a million dollars that this will happen.
So Big Ben, who has struggled all year on the road despite the competition and is banged up, is just going to magically find his groove and torch us? Anything's possible, but using the Seahawks game, which was ages ago and came shortly after we had to adjust after the Jamie Collins trade, is pretty dumb on your part.
