Senior Bowl Tidbits


Recommended Posts


" Two of the most impressive players on the field today both happened to be USC Trojans. Defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis was practically unblockable, blowing by Chad Rinehart on one play and being very disruptive in the backfield all afternoon. He also received a lot of praise from the coaching staff. Meanwhile his college teammate Keith Rivers, who drew a lot of praise from Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Rivers looked quick and explosive moving both forward and laterally and even made a nice play in coverage twenty yards downfield against Kellen Davis.

" USC offensive tackle Sam Baker displayed good use of his hands and nice footwork. He especially stood out in pass protection against speed rushers.

" Offensive guard Roy Schuening is stout at the point of attack and has good awareness.


" Yesterday USC defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis showed off his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield and today he showed he could be just as effective against the run. Ellis has looked every bit the part of a Top 10 pick.

" I was covering the North practice yesterday but I heard all about how good Tennessee St. cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie looked and he certainly lived up to the hype today. A smooth athlete with quick feet and fluid hips, Rodgers-Cromartie saw action at both safety and corner and made an amazing interception, displaying excellent leaping ability, hands and ball skills. This guy is the real deal!

" Georgia Tech running back Tashard Choice looked good, showing terrific vision and a nice burst to turn the corner. Choice is a natural runner and helped himself today.

" Tennessee tight end Brad Cottam is HUGE and really stands out on the field. In fact, he definitely has the frame to bulk up even further and a move to offensive tackle is not out of the question in my mind.

" Newberry offensive tackle Heath Benedict looked very good today. Benedict, who is lean and athletic and carries his weight well, was dominant at times in "The Pit" (just ask Wallace Gilberry) and he definitely lived up to his reputation for being physical and aggressive.

" Defensive end Kendall Langford displayed the ability to shed blocks and also showcased a strong bull rush. He doesn't have many other moves though.

" Vanderbilt offensive tackle Chris Williams had a terrific day and really makes it look easy.

" Florida St. defensive tackle Andre Fluellen is real quick and had a great day in "The Pit".
