This is Charlie Campbell's Wednesday 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 Wednesday'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.
Baltimore - Florida State kicker Dustin Hopkins and Cal center Brian Schwenke
Chicago - Arkansas Pine-Bluff offensive tackle Terron Armstead
Indianapolis - Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson
Minnesota - Arkansas Pine-Bluff offensive tackle Terron Armstead and Texas A&M Sean Porter
New England - Alabama long-snapper Carson Tinker
New Orleans - Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, South Florida defensive tackle Corey Grisson and Mississippi State defensive tackle Josh Boyd
Philadelphia - Clemson center Dalton Freeman
San Diego - Kentucky guard Larry Warford, Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson and Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins
Seattle - Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson
Tampa Bay - Rice tight end Vance McDonald
Washington - Tennessee tight end Mychal Rivera
St. Louis general manager Les Snead was speaking with Duke wide receiver Connor Vernon and Alabama safety Robert Lester after pratice.
Chicago will be meeting Lester on Wednesday night.
I would be shocked if Lamar Jackson is taken in the first round...let alone first 3 or 4 rounds. Has anyone actually watched him try to throw a ball? He's terrible. He's only completing about 50% of his passes against weak ACC schools. His running won't translate to NFL so we should really be looking at his passing. Will be a bigger flop that Johnny Manziel.
Another week of great NFL games and College games brings us closer to the draft, which is the best thing to look forward to if you're a fan of a bad team. Again, I made my own order, but with each week it's looking more and more stable with teams beginning to separate themselves. Also, do not hesitate to tell me I'm wrong, I love feedback and banter.
