2011 NFL Draft Stock Up: Senior Bowl Day 3 Practice
James Carpenter, OT/G, Alabama
James Carpenter has looked better than expected at the Senior Bowl, showing improved footwork during the practices.
Rodney Hudson, G, Florida State
Rodney Hudson didn't stand a chance against Phil Taylor - 50 pounds separate the two - but looked pretty good otherwise during Wednesday's practice.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
Colin Kaepernick has been the most impressive quarterback at the Senior Bowl. He's not ready to play coming out of the Pistol offense, but he can make every throw and has a ton of upside.
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
I thought Ryan Kerrigan was better today. He looked good standing up, and he beat Nate Solder during live action.
Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii
As forum member Mycarman called him, "The Hawaiian Salsa Guy," Greg Salas really showed off his great hands during Senior Bowl practice. He's solidified his status as a Round 3-4 slot receiver.
Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
I don't think Nate Solder has been impressive at the Senior Bowl. But he gets a "stock up" because Mike Mayock keeps talking about Solder being the next Tony Boselli. Hopefully that's the pre-Texans Boselli.
Danny Watkins, G, Baylor
Danny Watkins would be a high second-round pick if he weren't 27 years old. He looks great. A team ready to win now may take him in the third round.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Down: Senior Bowl Day 2 Practice
Allen Bailey, DE/DT, Miami
Allen Bailey has been struggling in one-on-one matchups all week. He couldn't get by Derek Sherrod, which is understandable. But then Bailey looked helpless against James Carpenter, a mid-round prospect. Something's wrong here.
Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma
Another poor day for Jeremy Beal. He didn't look right standing up and has been ineffective in the one-on-one drills all week.
Kris O'Dowd, C, USC
Kris O'Dowd just doesn't look good. He's been overmatched in nearly every one-on-one drill this week.
Courtney Smith, WR, Southern Alabama
As GameCenter member Taton would put it, "Come on C. Smith quit incomplete!!!! How many pass drop could be catch!!!!" Translation: Courtney Smith continued to drop passes Wednesday.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
