2010 Senior Bowl: Stock Report

The 2010 Senior bowl has come and gone, but the repercussions and reverberations will be felt until at least the 2010 NFL Draft on April 22nd.

Stock Up:
Geno Atkins, DL, Georgia
Showed excellent inside quickness, applying pressure in the pass and run game. Mike Iupati could not block him.

Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
Got to the quarterback and showed good discipline/insticts diagnosing some misdirection plays.

Andre Roberts, WR, Citadel
Made play after play. Showed good hands (minus one drop), decent routes, and that knack for getting open. Will make someone very happy in the NFL.

Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
Warrior. Showed good coverage skills and flowed to the ball real well, delivering some hits. Couldn’t tell that he was undersized during play, but I mistook him for a corner a couple of times.

Ciron Black, OT, LSU
Had some great blocks on Brandon Graham and Austen Lane, also showing some good wheels getting ahead of a screen pass. Did give up a sack, but the QB held the ball forever.

AJ Edds, OLB, Iowa
Showed the great coverage skills that he honed at Iowa, that hadn’t been seen yet during Senior Bowl week. Very smart player with good football IQ.

Mardy Gilyard, WR, Cinci
Great game from Gilyard after an up-and-down week of practice. Great speed and hands, as well as a potential special-teams helper.

Koa Misi, DE/OLB, Utah
Always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Good instincts and a ridiculous motor.

Dan Lefevour, QB, CMU
Solidified his position as the 4th best QB in the draft, showing good touch on deep balls and impressive running skills.

Colin Peek, TE, Alabama / Garrett Graham, TE, Wisconsin
Both showcased good blocking skills and quality hands, catching a nice touchdown pass in the 1st half.

Jared Odrick, DL, Penn State
Very disruptive, caused havoc on nearly every play. Showed that he has the strength and quickness to play inside and outside.

Alex Carrington, DL, Arkansas State
Carrington again showed the ability to play DE or OLB. Probably too light for the 5-technique, but ideal for LOLB.

Dan Williams, DL, Tennessee
Very stout. Double-teams couldn’t move Williams, who deflected a pass and squeezed the pocket on multiple occasions.

Stock Down:
Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
Iupati was overmatched by the quicker Geno Atkins, giving up a sack and a holding penalty. Iupati had some great blocks, but is too much of a grabber. He got away with two or three holds. Still is probably a 1st-rounder, but a borderline one in our opinion now.

Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky
Might have had the worst Senior Bowl week of anyone. Didn’t show good awareness in coverage and wasn’t near physical enough. A mid-round prospect at best right now.

Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
Wasn’t moved off his spot, but was taken out of most plays by his poor technique. Can’t rely on his bulk and brute strength at the next level. When blocked one-on-one, he was able to get penetration.

Sean Canfield, QB, Oregon State
Had some poor reads and ugly balls. Put the ball on the ground during a sack.

Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
You’ve read enough about Tim.

Selvish Capers, OL, West Virginia
Couldn’t block Brandon Graham, or anyone else for that matter.

Sam Young, OL, Notre Dame
Lack of awareness during a fumble cost the North a possession. Confirmed that he wasn’t quick enough to be a LT.

  1. 49er fan says:

    Dan Fever has been spreading rampantly! He’s no good. Under center he fumbled the snap and on another play from under center he dropped 3 steps and made an inaccurate throw. Yes he out ran a LB to the side lines and made a nice throw to Gilyard but IMO he’s not even an NFL backup.

    Kafka who might not even be drafted > Senior QB prospects.(Pike, Fever, Canfield, Skelton, Tebow all of them)
