Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

For me, Eric Fisher, Lane Johnson and Ziggy Ansah will be the top-3 Senior Bowlers drafted, but who is next?

Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

My vote for #SeniorBowl MVP in today’s game: South DE Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah from #BYU

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

The CBs really played well, and the best one didn’t even participate. Jamar Taylor.

NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

South defeats North 21-16. Remember to catch all the post-game analysis tomorrow on Draft Digest Podcast: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/all-access-football/2013/01/27/nfl-draft-digest-all-star-game-recap-show …

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Zac Dysert impressive on potentially final drive. Checking down under pressure well…And Kenjon Barner showed that receiver ability.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

I don’t think he has a catch today, but #Rice TE Vance McDonald has been dominating as a blocker…might be the No. 2 senior TE behind Kelce

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Ansah hasn’t looked winded IMO. Improvement, and I love it.

Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

And Denard Robinson can’t field the kick. That’s something he’s GOTTA show NFL teams he can do if he hopes to be drafted

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Miami running back MIKE JAMES scores on 5-yard touchdown run. California offensive lineman BRIAN SCHWENKE leads the way. South leads 21-10.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

They do it in different ways, but Short is like Jerel Worthy in that he needs to win off the snap IMO. Did it quite a bit this week.

Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

FIU Safety Cyprien filling the hole there. His range as a safety knows no boundaries. In run and pass game. Special talent.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Been really good. Most consistent, and leading potential game winning drive. RT @FBallGameplan: EJ Manuel just named Player of the Game

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Kentucky offensive lineman LARRY WARFORD will be the first #Wildcats OL selected in NFL Draft since TODD PERRY (Bears) fourth round in 1993.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

Before the E-W Shrine Game, #UConn LB Sio Moore had a 3rd round grade from me, last 2 weeks only helped confirm that

Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

4th/5th round grade on Warford implies non-starter… #NoWay

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

RT @JoshNorris Margus Hunt, tight hips show up too often… Agreed. Would like to see him heavier, moved inside. Worry frame is maxed out.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Nice play by Cyprien of cutting off the angle.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Before his Shrine Week and Senior Bowl #UConn LB Sio Moore finished 1st on the Huskies team in TFL (15.5), 2nd in sacks (8.0), & PD (11).

Adam Caplan Adam Caplan ‏@caplannfl

Nice job by Manuel there with movement and resetting with pass to Taylor.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Mills completely locked onto Datone there…

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Lane Johnson blocked to the 3rd level, and did it well. Super athlete to run block like that.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Margus Hunt, tight hips show up too often.

Daniel Jeremiah ‏@MoveTheSticks

Small school CBs Alford and Webb have had big weeks. Talented cover guys with big kick/punt returns today. #SeniorBowl

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

From that last quote, I really don’t care if he knows or doesn’t. Just an interesting anecdote.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Was told this by someone at the Senior Bowl: Someone asked Ansah if he preferred a 2, 3, or 4 point stance. He didn’t know what they were.

Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

He makes one play, and my timeline is filled with Sio Moore. 3-4th rd linebacker IMO. Three good LBs from the Shrine.

Daniel Jeremiah Daniel Jeremiah ‏@MoveTheSticks

Waiting for the North to take a deep shot to Goodwin…

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Mike Zimmer, #Bengals DC, is going to like #UConn SAM Sio Moore. Showing tremendous versatility to run, cover, and rush the passer.

Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Ansah making special teams plays…

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Purdue defensive tackle KAWANN SHORT earned him some 1st round $money today. Nobody has had their name called more. #SenorBowl #NFLdraft

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Landry Jones did that all week – CONSISTENTLY late on all of his boundary throws.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

I was high on Aboushi coming in but he has had a tough, inconsistent week.

Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

We hear that the #SeniorBowl game does not matter, but when a guy like Ezekiel Ansah goes out & shows athleticism/power, it doesn’t hurt.

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

Ansah deserves credit for play — terrific closing speed, wherewithal to force fumble — but Nassib should’ve felt pressure, secured ball.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Texas wr MARQUISE GOODWIN looks like a cross between AZ-ZAHIR HAKIM and SANTANA MOSS. Whether 5’8 frame can hold up over 16-games is the ?

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Despite being a major fan, personally: Ryan Nassib has struggled mightily. Poor game.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Ansah… not raw, inexperienced.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Nassib looking uncomfortable under pressure and Ansah gets the sack/forced fumble. Changed direction effortlessly in pursuit. #SeniorBowl

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Nassib has to tuck that ball when he knows he’s being chased, just a silly fumble.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Ansah just has to learn to create space, then it is over.

Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Ansah doesn’t explode off the ball but man does he have a motor.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

DENARD ROBINSON sighting. #Michigan quarterback-turned wide receiver makes first play of the day with 10-yard pass from Syracuse RYAN NASSIB

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Marquise Goodwin looks natural returning punts -pedaling under control & quickly getting upfield, Goodwin plays the ball like an outfielder.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Good to see #Rutgers linebacker KHASEEM GREENE representing the #ScarletKnights an under the radar potential first round guy. #SeniorBowl

Shawn Zobel ‏@ShawnZobel_DHQ

Gotta love Glennon’s arm. Every time I want to get excited I remember his three INT’s against Vandy in the bowl game

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Florida State linebacker VINCE WILLIAMS has been de-cleating folks all week. #SidVicious

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Quick decision, fast tempo offense fits Glennon best. Rock step/off back foot and throw.

Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

That’s three holds by OL facing Cornelius Washington by my count. The former LB turned DE is wreaking havoc today. #SeniorBowl

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Glennon looked like this on Tuesday…

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Mike Glennon with some fantastic passes. Has the arm talent when he has adequate protection. Can’t deny his upside now and on film at times.

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

And that is why #NCState QB Mike Glennon will be a first-round pick

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

That’s why I put Vince Williams in the 2nd round – he explodes downhill.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Following a strong week of practice, #Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson has stood out again today. Making himself a lot money at the #SeniorBowl

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Oregon State corner JORDAN POYER with the deflection off Florida St. quarterback EJ MANUEL pass, Utah State WILL DAVIS comes up with the INT

Matt Waldman ‏@MattWaldman

Kaerpernick’s delivery was not good at Nevada. I think @SC_Farrar put it well – blank slate @LanceZierlein @ECStoner @BCWilliams71 Manuel

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Nice play by Short there. Impressive week, even more impressive when reviewing practice tape. Look determined.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Kawann Short just beat Larry Warford badly on that TFL. One of Warford’s rare mistakes, but he has had issues with speed at times.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Hunt vs. Johnson, this is the type of matchup on the line I want to see…

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

I like Mike Gillislee’s ability to find creases and grind out tough yards between the tackles. Nice combo of vision, burst, and balance.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Poyer almost got to that ball. Love his ball skills. #OregonState

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Mayock just dropped a few nuggets: hearing Manuel in 3/4th and Gratz is getting looks at safety.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

UCLA running back JONATHAN FRANKLIN grinds his way into end zone to put North on the board. After EDDIE LACY, he might be the next best RB.

Matt Waldman Matt Waldman ‏@MattWaldman

What a team has to learn is if Manuel can learn. I think so, but teams will need to see it. @LanceZierlein @BCWilliams71 Manuel

Matt Waldman Matt Waldman ‏@MattWaldman

Manuel just got himself a whiteboard to study game as visual learner last summer. @LanceZierlein @BCWilliams71 Manuel

Mark Dulgerian Mark Dulgerian ‏@markdulgerianOS

Look at any 2010-2011 tape of #UCLA’s Franklin and glaring problem is running into behinds of his OL. Greatly improved patience this yr

Matt Waldman Matt Waldman ‏@MattWaldman

I looked back at my notes on Kaepernick and he was far from consistent. Worth noting about Manuel (nxt) @LanceZierlein @BCWilliams71 Manuel.

Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Patience, Patience, Patience by #UCLA RB Jonathan Franklin. Good cut upfield for the touchdown.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

Those 7 seniors are: RB Montee Ball…OG Jonathan Cooper…QB Geno Smith…DT Star Lotulelei…LB Manti Te’o…S Kenny Vaccaro…OG Chance Warmack

I like Glennon and Nassib more than EJ Manuel on tape, but neither is so good that I wouldn’t at least hear EJ’s story if I were a GM/HC.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

That’s the Mike Glennon throw. Five step drop, plant, and get it out outside the hashes. In those situations, you see the upside.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Saw that throw coming since it was to my sideline, Glennon threw it late to Wheaton IMO.

Matt Waldman Matt Waldman ‏@MattWaldman

The nice thing that holds promise for Manuel is that he keeps eyes down field and climbs RT @LanceZierlein: @BCWilliams71 Manuel

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Will be very interesting to see which NFL GM is willing to put their reputation on the line with selection of quarterback in 1st rd this yr.

Benjamin Allbright Benjamin Allbright ‏@NFLDraftMonster

Lmao seeing so many tweets decrying the #SeniorBowl QBs…they had three practices together. Lines havent had time to gel, chem w/ wrs, etc

Benjamin Allbright Benjamin Allbright ‏@NFLDraftMonster

Evaluating qbs during this game is a farce. Check the tape. Tape is the dna, this is just a small part.

Todd McShay Todd McShay ‏@McShay13

Glad to see more from BYU DE Ansah today than we saw from him in practices. Rare skill set but scary raw.

Albert Breer Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer

To be fair to Landry Jones, he played a lot in the gun in college. But questions lingered on his ability to take a hit. He looks skittish.

Todd McShay Todd McShay ‏@McShay13

UCLA’s Datone Jones showing up in Senior Bowl game like he did all week in practice.

Senior Bowl QBs: They are who we thought they were.

Sigmund Bloom Sigmund Bloom ‏@SigmundBloom

RT @LanceZierlein– Smith goes inside top 3 at least. Barkley’s tape isn’t good enough to challenge. Smart move would be to sit out combine

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

@SigmundBloom If you want a potentially dominant OG, this is the year to invest a mid-late 1st Rd pick. Warmack, Cooper, Warford. Wow!

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

Some have asked me why I haven’t listed Glennon among those underwhelming prospects. He threw exactly as I expected he would – sporadically.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

In a perfect world, #NCState QB Mike Glennon should be drafted about the same range as Nick Foles a yr ago…he won’t last that long though

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Nice play there by Will Davis. Really liked his tape, not a good week. 10%…

Sigmund Bloom Sigmund Bloom ‏@SigmundBloom

This Senior Bowl QB group might be pushing/solidifying Geno Smith in the top 5, because, well, look at the alternative

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Dysert? I don’t care where he goes. Late 1 to end of second day. RT @DaRealBucc4life: isn’t he a 4th round prospect?

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Zaviar Gooden is gonna run a 4.44. Book it

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

Ashamed to say I had Landry Jones in the third round of my mock. He won’t be there next week http://walterfootball.com/draft2013_3.php

Daniel Jeremiah Daniel Jeremiah ‏@MoveTheSticks

Landry Jones really struggles when he has to reset his feet in the pocket. Accuracy suffers. #SeniorBowl

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Dysert is making me look smart today. Thanks.

Albert Breer Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer

Tyler Wilson’s arm strength looks suspect, not sure about Landry Jones’ presence in the pocket. Not a good look for Senior Bowl QBs so far.

Mark Dulgerian Mark Dulgerian ‏@markdulgerianOS

Fatigue is something to look out for w Datone Jones. Isn’t the same player in the 1st as he is in the 4th in games I watched.

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

Landry Jones is absolutely terrible

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Unsurprisng, based on film: Landry Jones panics under pressure with the worst of them. No accuracy either under pressure either.

Chris Steuber Chris Steuber ‏@ChrisSteuber

I’ve never been high on Ryan Nassib (51st overall on my Top 100), other than him being from Philly area. He’s not on Matt Barkley’s level.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Constant problem on film w/ Jones – inside pressure prevents him from stepping into his throw, consistently off target.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

*insert Landry Jones throws inaccurate pass tweet here*

Benjamin Allbright Benjamin Allbright ‏@NFLDraftMonster

As I said all week, Landry and Dysert loiked bad, now you the home viewer can see it too.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Miami-Ohio quarterback ZAC DYSERT picked off by Missouri linebacker ZAVIER GOODEN. Bad throw, Dysert has really struggled this week. #SRbowl

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

The only good quarterback in the #SeniorBowl has been #FSU’s EJ Manuel

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Well, if it were possible to look worse on your first possession than Landry Jones, Zac Dysert just accomplished that. #SeniorBowl

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

Miami-Ohio quarterback ZAC DYSERT gets crushed by Georgia defensive end CORNELIUS WASHINGTON and fumble the ball. ‘Cuse JUSTIN PUGH recovers

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Oh Dysert….It seemed he looked the least comfortable all week in practice. THat seems like a nervous, poor throw/decision there.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Dysert had Harper open down the seam from my perspective…

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

There’s Cornelius Washington for the South team sacking Zac Dysert and forcing the fumble. @ckparrot have been talking him up today.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Justin Pugh showing why shorter arms means struggles on the edge. Couldn’t extend, control the inside…DE Cornelius Washington playing well

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Landry Jones’s first #SeniorBowl possesion can be summed up in one word, or rather one sound effect: “Ooof”

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Pugh… Slide inside any time.

osh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Pugh completely hung Nassib out to dry there, complete overset, got flat-footed.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Man, Warford all over Datone there – stayed with it after spin move, nice footwork.

Have to add Nassib to list of underwhelming performers. Mentioned WR Williams previously. Chase Thomas, Jordan Poyer too. Liked all on tape.

NFL Draft Bible NFL Draft Bible ‏@NFLDraftBible

A little trickanery with DENARD ROBINSON on the end around reverse but it doesn’t fool ZIGGY ANSAH who has had his name called a lot today.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

This is why I love Ansah as a 5-tech. Moves laterally so well, can’t be single blocked in the run game. At 43 DE,struggles on edge as rusher

Sigmund Bloom Sigmund Bloom ‏@SigmundBloom

At 6’5″ 270 with three total years of experience playing football RT @JoshNorris Ziggy has the best closing speed in this draft, period.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Be sure to note if Ansah gets fatigued. One of the main issues I have with him.

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Lavar Edwards #LSU just abused Kyle Long with an outside-in power move. Very violent hands

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

There’s Ansah! I’m not impressed with him yet as a pass rusher, but he’s ready to contribute in the NFL vs. the run. Very fast in pursuit.

Mark Dulgerian Mark Dulgerian ‏@markdulgerianOS

Well, at least Ziggy showed up for the game.

Sigmund Bloom Sigmund Bloom ‏@SigmundBloom

That’s why Ziggy Ansah can be a first-rounder no matter how he looked at any all-star game practice or on any single piece of film

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

#BYU DE Ziggy Ansah was just OK in practice. Was thinking too much. He’s been a monster today.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Ansan in the run game again….just reminding.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Noticed that on tape too with Tyler Wilson. Good arm strength, but will leave that deep ball short too often. NFL DBs will make him pay.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

That last pass from Tyler Wilson is just as bad as the interception from Ryan Nassib, but won’t show up in box score. #SeniorBowl

Good for Rambo – didn’t think he’d play today w/ his hamstring problem…

Another inside collapsing tackle by Ezekial Ansah. I won’t say it again, but follow him in the run game. #47.

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Kyle Long was sick this week but he had a great cut block on that outside run by Rouse #seniorbowl #Oregon

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Kept saying it this week, but Robbie Rouse isn’t so much explosive as exaggerated in his cuts. Not a real negative.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Ezekial Ansah tracking the ball in the run game. If he goes 1st round, it’s because of his athleticism in the run game. #BYU

Cyprien showed all of this skill at FIU. Problem is not a lot of people saw it until this week…

Geno Smith/Tyler Wilson reminds me a lot of Alex Smith/Aaron Rodgers. In January who was willing to say either of those guys were “elite”?

Mike Williams just blocked two guys by himself on that first run play.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Terron Armstead already getting snaps at LT. Could be highest E-W Shrine player drafted.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Ezekial Ansah is still very unpolished as a pass rusher (especially at end), but he can add value early in NFL in the run game. Solid there.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Good lord, Mayock, Schwenke can most definitely NOT anchor – that was CLEAR this week.

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Marquise Goodwin is actually a good wide receiver. When you throw him the football. #TakeNotesTexas

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Getting a lot of questions about E.J. Manuel for Chip Kelly. I do like the fit. Would like to see Alex Smith as the starter though. #Eagles

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Biggest plus for EJ Manuel this week: He’s coachable. For a natural talent (quick release, good arm, mobile), he got better each practice.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

That drive actually a fair representation of E.J. Manuel as a player. A couple “wtf” plays and a “wow” throw.

Perfect throw by Manuel… Michael Williams just scored a TD on TJ McDonald on a downfield route. Would not have bet on that happening.

Before people start grouping me with the E.J. Manuel hype train. I’m saying he’s worth a look late Day Two as a project QB. Not 1st/2nd Rd.

Mark Dulgerian Mark Dulgerian ‏@markdulgerianOS

Nice closing speed by TJ McDonald. Strong player close to LOS

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

RB Gillislee again with his adjustment to his blocks. Not a burner, not a power back, but efficient and decisive. Those guys last in the NFL

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Tavarres King showing the slippery elusiveness to create after the catch. Deceptive glider speed

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Couple plays ago Trufant lined up across from Patton… #MoarPlz

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Also, Michael Williams is going to be in the league a longgg time. Blocking TE, second or third on the roster.

I tweeted this before every #Oklahoma game so I’ll do it again today: watch LT Lane Johnson #69 if you haven’t seen him yet #Stud

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Virg OT Oday Aboushi performing very well thus far vs. the week’s star Datone Jones. Exchanging hands, sliding with balance laterally well

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

Could point to Kentucky’s Larry Warford often today. Most consistently impressive player from this game no one seems to be talking about.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

And I’m going to write this in my review, but I prefer Warford to Jonathan Cooper. My kind of G. Different types, IMO.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

NFL teams are going to love Gillislee because he goes where he is supposed to, and hard. Loves to follow his blocks.

Alex Brown Alex Brown ‏@ABXXV25

Margus Hunt is no match for Lane Johnson. Hunt plays too upright to turn the corner and isn’t able to utilize his length properly.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Gillislee with tight, decisive steps. That’s his best attribute as a runner. Read/reacts to his blocks very well.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

Nobody will tell you that Manuel is ready to start in the NFL, not many will tell you he’s a Day 1/2 player on tape. But undeniable upside.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

I’m telling you guys, just wait until Ziggy learns how to shed. He is already strong with amazing closing speed. I’m patient.

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

LB Kevin Reddick of UNC has been maybe the best special teammer this week. Major help to his stock. Covered well on the punt there too.

Chris Steuber Chris Steuber ‏@ChrisSteuber

I also believe Nick Foles will be #Eagles starter in ’13. But, as I said, Manuel is a groom & boom prospect, who I have rated 47th overall.

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Here’s the issue with Goodwin: Difficult, difficult eval based on live action bc of what he was limited to at Texas.

Benjamin Allbright Benjamin Allbright ‏@NFLDraftMonster

Eric Fisher stonewalking LSU’s Edwards… Glennon with poor placement early

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Goodwin got inside leverage on that deep route but gotta love seeing Anthony on his hip – he’s turned a lot of heads this week.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

#CMU LT Eric Fisher putting on a clinic so far against #LSU DE Lavar Edwards #SeniorBowl

Thomas Melton Thomas Melton ‏@TMeltonScouting

Brandon Wee… I mean Mike Glennon with two incompletions in a row

Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

Looks like Mike Glennon trusts Marquise Goodwin. Three throws to him…Also on that play: Eric Fisher crushed Lavar Edwards.

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

More on Terrance Williams- Long strider who appeared more comfortable catching passes over his shoulder than directly at him. Body catches.

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

E.J. Manuel is the definition of a project and I don’t think what you see is what you’ll necessarily get. Could absolutely be groomed.

Dane Brugler Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler

Based off tape, I gave #FloridaState QB EJ Manuel a 5th round grade, but good chance he goes 2nd day because the raw skills will intrigue

Ryan Lownes Ryan Lownes ‏@ryanlownes

I don’t like E.J. Manuel’s college tape. Wildly inconsistent w/erratic accuracy and shaky decision making. But some team will fall in love.

Walter Cherepinsky Walter Cherepinsky ‏@walterfootball

Definitely agree with that RT @ChrisSteuber I really believe E.J. Manuel is the QB Chip Kelly will target for the #Eagles.

Rob Rang Rob Rang ‏@RobRang

Not comfortable characterizing Baylor’s Terrance Williams as a “Faller” but he is certainly among top prospects who underwhelmed in practice

Chris Steuber Chris Steuber ‏@ChrisSteuber

I really believe E.J. Manuel is the QB Chip Kelly will target for the #Eagles. He’s a groom & boom prospect for Philly. #NFLDraft

Josh Norris Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris

Alford showed a lot of speed post INT at his level of football this year. Couldn’t separate to the house against Trufant though.

Adam Caplan Adam Caplan ‏@caplannfl

Practices, in general, more important. But a great game performance can help.

Josh Liskiewitz Josh Liskiewitz ‏@JoshLiskiewitz

Desmond Trufant just solidified himself as a top 50 pick…
Eric Galko Eric Galko ‏@OptimumScouting

ALMOST broke it for Robert Alford. RT @OptimumScouting: The #SeniorBowl hasn’t had a punt return in 30 years, nor a kick return in 22 years.
