2012 Senior Bowl: Wednesday North Practice Report
Audie Cole, ILB, N.C. State
Audie Cole had another really nice practice, as he stood out in the one-on-one drills. He could be making his way toward the second round.
Vinny Curry, DE/OLB, Marshall
Another up-and-down practice for Vinny Curry, who easily beat Kevin Zeitler, but then was stonewalled by Kelechi Osemele when lining up inside.
"There's a little buzz going on about him," said Mike Mayock. "He doesn't do anything great, but he does everything well. That motor is going to get him into the second round."
Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
Two cornerbacks bounced back from a rough start to this week. Alfonzo Dennard made a really nice pass break-up on Brian Quick on seven-on-sevens.
Donnie Fletcher, CB, Boston College
The other corner who rebounded was Donnie Fletcher, who hit hard and excelled in the run-blocking drill. Mike Mayock noted that onlookers like it when prospects improve off a bad start.
"Fletcher struggled Monday," Mayock said. "But I thought he came back yesterday and got a bit of a buzz when he got his hands on people."
Cam Johnson, DE, Virginia
Cam Johnson has enjoyed some very good Senior Bowl practices. Mike Mayock took note of this.
"Cam Johnson is interesting," Mayock said. "I don't know where you line him up, but he's had a really good week."
Mike Martin, DT, Michigan
Mike Martin wasn't as dominant as he was Tuesday, but he still stood out with some solid performances in the one-on-ones. He's probably helped himself more than anybody at the Senior Bowl. He's listed in the third round of today's 2012 NFL Mock Draft update, but I may have to move him up next week.
Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
Another poor outing for Kellen Moore. All I'm hearing is "he's the next Tyler Palko." If you watched the Chiefs this year, you know that's not a good thing.
Chris Polk, RB, Washington
The Sun Tan Man suggested that Chris Polk has hurt himself more than any running back this week, and I couldn't agree more. Perhaps it's the weight he recently put on, but he looks really slow on the field.
Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
Right tackle Mitchell Schwartz caught my eye when he made some nice blocks in the one-on-ones on Monday, but I didn't mention him. He stood out again today, prompting Mike Mayock to compliment him.
"Schwartz is going to force me to do some more tapework on him," Mayock said. "He's a better athlete than I thought."
Also, I think you're kidding yourself if you think Tanoh Kpassagnon will be available in the third round. He's an athletic freak and he's about to shoot up draft boards with the Senior Bowl coming up as well as the combine. He'll probably end up being a late first, early second round pick.
@NealB4Keanu because that way you won't go to a bum ass team like the browns or 49ers where you're basically set up to fail, no matter how good you are. think dak prescott is glad he fell down the draft for absurd reasons?
After two major blowout wins we are now on the way to the Super Bowl. The draft order remains the same since the prediction of a Falcons and Patriots Super Bowl came true. I will try to spice it up by having team select different players with sound reasoning behind the picks. As always I love constructive banter and feedback so please do not hesitate to throw out your opinions in the comment section.
