This is Charlie Campbell's Wednesday 2013 Senior Bowl Prospect Meetings Report (North 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 Wednesday's practice by the North 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.

Denver - Fresno State safety Philip Thomas

I can not disagree anymore on Walts opinion on the Raiders moving to LV. The Raiders have one of the best fan bases in the league and the fans will travel and stay loyal. Being in CA you really see all this. Aside from the Raiders fans already in LV and the ones they will make swarms of fans will travel fro Socal. Chances are a @#$@ load of raider fans will already be partying there that weekend. The team is winning too so theres no way the fans in Oakland won't go to games theres last couple of years.
Interesting route here Walt. I'm curious as of late how teams will draft offense here. You're nailing it with defense. However, RBs have been going higher all of a sudden with success. And the QB class seems to be picking up as well. Kizer and Watson are flying of draft boards and Trubisky is leaving a sour taste for many now. Nevertheless, teams will reach. But who will be the first?
