This is Charlie Campbell's Tuesday 2013 Senior Bowl Prospect Meetings Report (South Team). Charlie is reporting live from Mobile, Ala., and he'll describe what he sees at practice and whom certain prospects talk to all week.
Here is a recap of the player interviews that were conducted on the field after Tuesday's practice by the South team. Typically, these interviews with area scouts are to set up longer, formal interviews for a night during the week. While teams say they "talk" to every player, teams do not take the time to conduct formal interviews with every draft prospect, so this can be a clue as to which players are on their radar.

For the Vikings it doesn't matter who our RB is if we don't improve the line first. Our first pick HAS to be an offensive lineman. Preferably an OT where we have nobody who should be starting, but it could also be an interior lineman if that's what's available. Obviously the Vikings could spend in FA and improve the line to a point where our first pick can be BPA, but the line is by far and away the number one priority.
I'm not sure why but that diagram made me uncomfortable when skeletor was too close at the end. Not super uncomfortable, but uncomfortable like that feeling you get when you know the ghosts have you cornered and you're out of those super pellets and they're just about to kill you.
