We’re here live at the Senior Bowl in the press box, ready to live blog everything you might not see on your television broadcast and some of the stuff you are seeing.
UDPATE: Due to the stadium wi-fi being down, the post will be updated shortly.
Starting lineup: WR Joe Adams, LT Cordy Glenn, LG Will Blackwell, C Ben Jones, RG James Brown, RT Zebrie Sanders, TE Brad Smelley, WR Juron Criner, QB Brandon Weeden, RB Vick Ballard, FB Alfred Morris
-South offense touchback, we’re live!
-The Weeden-Adams connection continues into the game.
-Vick Ballard tough to take down early for a five yard gain.
-Cordy Glenn can move for a man his size. Joe Adams fumbles, recovered by the North.
-Boykin and Rainey back for kicks.
-I knew the South would go to Smelley early, the crowd erupts. I wonder who they’re fans of here…
-South going with some massive bookends at WR, Jeff Fuller and Dwight Jones. Two of the most disappointing prospects down here this week.
-Eric Galko’s fave Dwight Jones pulls it in with one hand.
-Terrance Ganaway showed a lot of smarts and burst this week. Takes advantage of the huge whole Will Blackwell edged off.
-Ben Jones was chucked like a ragdoll on that tackle by Ta’amu.
The Senior Bowl WIFI cut out on us pretty consistently after this, so I wanted to go over a couple more notable players in the game:
-Joe Adams looked like the best player on the field out there. He has incredible burst after the catch and really exploited the soft man coverage that the North was throwing at him. He’s deadly on those curl routes, especially when he has so much room to work with.
-Nick Foles and Juron Criner had an obvious connection from their days at Arizona together. Foles had a bad week while Criner had just an OK week. This game raised my opinion on both players a tick. Criner more than Foles.
-Terrance Ganaway showed some burst on a 16 yard run but did little else. It was nice to see him catch the ball twice, since he had only six receptions all season.
-Zebrie Sanders continued to show some questionable strength. It looked like he was getting pushed around by the North defensive line.
-Dwight Jones and Jeff Fuller continued to struggle. It’s so imposing to see two 6’4″ receivers across the field from one another… until you see Jones slog around the field and Fuller drop easy pass after easy pass.
-I thought Brad Smelley was going to be a favorite of the Senior QBs after seeing how well he did throughout the week. He wound up with only one reception on one target though. Smelley has a future in the NFL though, he has very nice hands.
-Brandon Weeden played very sparingly, but after the week he had, I wouldn’t be surprised if he or his agent told coach Shanahan to give the other QBs a chance. Weeden proved all that he needed to during practice.
-We barely got to see A.J. Jenkins this week, but today he played pretty well for never having a full practice. He had a 26 yard reception on two targets and showed off some pretty crisp route running.
