Ten Players To Watch in Today’s Senior Bowl
1. Colin Kaepernick–
The Nevada signal caller has impressed all week, and a good game tomorrow could raise his stock into the 3rd round range. He might not be the biggest name, but I think he has the biggest upside and talent.
2. Cameron Jordan-
The DE/DT has dominated all week against his fellow Northern teammates, now that he is going up against a Southern O-line that isn’t nearly as good, it could be quite a performance. Jordan has been raising his stock up big time and he a big game could seal a top 10 spot for him.
3. Titus Young-
Young is the most electrifying receiver in this class and if he explodes tomorrow it could raise his stock into the 2nd round range.
4. Nate Solder-
Gabe Carimi is a late scratch so Solder can solidify his spot as the top OT of this class with a big game. He will go up against a couple quality talents so if he stones them, he will hear his name called in the middle of the first round.
5. Kendall Hunter-
Hunter has been the ‘litttle running back who could’ this week and if he has a big game he can answer questions about him being too small to start in the NFL.
1. Christian Ponder-
Ponder has had a good week and answered some real questions about his health and arm strength. If he can build on that success with a good Senior Bowl game he could re-enter that 2nd-3rd round mix.
2. Phil Taylor-
Taylor came into the Senior Bowl looking the best he has ever looked and followed that up with a dominate week of practices. Right now he looks to be the top Nose Tackle in this draft class. If he can press the pocket against the North offensive line he could more his stock up to the mid-2nd round range.
3. Rodney Hudson-
Hudson has dealt with questions about whether or not he was big enough to play at the next level, and while he has added some weight it hasn’t stopped those questions from being asked. Hudson has the ability to be an all-pro guard, but it remains to be seen if he can anchor against NFL talent. If Hudson gets the chance to go up against Cam Jordan, and he stops him, it will go a long way to answering that question.
4. Derrek Sherrod-
Sherrod is loved by some scouts as a future LT and others peg him as a guard. If Sherrod can build on a solid week of practice with a good game, he should begin to answer those questions about him.
5. Ahmad Black-
A lot of people don’t think Black can be effective at the next level because he is a 5’9″ safety, but that never stopped Black in college. He’s had a pretty good week so far, and a good game against some quality receivers will help answer those remaining questions.
