The Senior Bowl recap from our scout

We take a pause from blogging about Rex Ryan's weekend escapades to discuss football again.

As you know, Chris Cordero spent four days last week in Mobile, Alabama scouting players at the Super Bowl for this blog. I'm certain he was trying to hook up a job with an NFL team as well. Anyway, the scouting reports are finished.

This is his post-game recap of the game. Please be sure to thank Chris for his diligence and expertise in the comments section. Also feel free to say if you agree or disagree with our scout's opinions.

SENIOR BOWL GAME RECAP

A little disclaimer: I have always found practices to be every bit as if not more important than the game. The game had a very "big-time" feel to it as it was sold out and rocking. It was a obviously a Pro-South crowd with Tim Tebow and players from the Alabama National Championship team.
 
ILB Sean Weatherspoon stood out right from the start and made plays not only on defense (if he can cover McCluster - well who CAN'T he cover?), but special teams as well. Weatherspoon is a player and I would take him on my team anyday. OLB Brandon Graham was also spectacular throughout - using his speed and great leverage to get by on more than one occasion, finishing with 2 sacks and a forced fumble. Another guy I would want on my side. They were so good they were the biggest part of why the North team dominated. 
 
OLB Cameron Sheffield and Brandon Lang got pressure on the QBs and Koa Misi also was very active. George Selvie was around the ball on some plays - but not overly impressive. ILB Jamar Chaney was all over every running play and had a hand on what liked like every South tackle. Donald Butler was rather quiet.
 
The Top 3 Nose Tackles (Dan Williams, Cam Thomas, Terrence Cody) all had great success to a varying degree. Williams, the most impressive, consistently holding up blockers, stuffing the run, and even batting down pass. Thomas, who had had a sack, also held up at the POA and displayed great strength. Cody also was quite good - consistently drawing a double team - but he wore down some.
 
WR Mardy Gilyard was impressive - despite at least one drop that I saw; displaying his great speed, quicks, and playmaking ability receiving and returning. My #1 guy - Andre Roberts - dropped the first pass I saw all week but made a nice catch in the middle of the field and taking a big hit. Jeremy Williams of Tulane, who had a decent week - played well; but also had at least one drop. Taylor Price was rather quiet and his inconsistencies showed up during the game.
 
FS Nate Allen was always around the ball even though it won't show up on the stat sheet - and did nothing to knock him off my #1 spot. Taylor Mays had an interception on an easy read and weak throw by Sean Canfield - outside of that he wasn't much of a factor. Myron Rolle didn't look as good in game action as in practice, his speed is still a question.
 
TE Ed Dickson had one nice play on a deep 31-yard pass. Jimmy Graham looked good also - although he did have one drop; but could have had more receptions if the south QBs (cough Tebow cough) would have targeted him more. Colin Peek stepped up and did a great job to hold on to a TD after a big hit. Anthony McCoy was quiet with just one catch.
 
OL Mike Iupati, who did get caught holding, and Vladimir Ducasse looked dominant - although Geno Atkins of Georgia did get some great rushes in the interior on Iupati - and did as well as you could expect versus the big DTs of the South. John Jerry got pushed a little by Cam Thomas, and looked better at good than tackle.
 
RB LaGarrette Blount of Oregon had a great day and could be a very good back in the league. The best QBs were Dan LeFevour of Central Michigan and Zac Robinson of Oklahoma St. CB Kyle Wilson of Boise St. also looked good. DE Alex Carrington of Arkansas State followed up a great week of practice with a good showing at the game.

you are a joke nj

stop the madness - What is your point in arguing with all or most posters on this sight? It seems everyday you are downgrading someone...?? Just curious...

Marc, are you sure that blogging here won't jeopardize your suit against Eric Green?

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | February 01, 2010 at 10:54 AM


hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Good job NJ...

Hey freak madness. You're infatuation with NJ is embarrassing. You were even looking for him at 3:00 in the morning. Are you Lonely or something. Get off this blog. We want to talk football . You have infested this blog. Please leave.

NJ, I used to think that you referring to the discussion of the live blog as "your" blog was for the purpose of sticking it to your "online adversaries" but now I'm not so sure.

Please tell me you don't actually think it was YOUR blog??? Especially since Mando was there himself.

By the way, the name is Weatherspoon, not Witherspoon.

stop the madness has never once talked about football, he is so infatuated with NJ it is scary.

NJ,

If I were you I would not tell anyone about restaurants gym or town you live in. I think this guy wants to track you down and make a NJ suit out of you.

Mark. get serious. THINK !! :) I'm having fun. It's a freaking blog. You take this to serious. Also tomatos or TOMOTO's. who cares , they know who i'm talking about. Stop knit picking. Have a baklava :)

indian dolphin i dont like the fact he used my name and attacked you and rob in oc. my beef has been with nj and nj only. cant you tell the difference, no matter what ppl say about me i havent attack them, but on the other hand i never say anything positive about nj. and as far as me post 3:00 a.m. get real. the only one on the blog all day is NJ, he was just he now he's gone!! you ppl are so naive at the fact this dude actually think this is his blog

Bobbyd12. I see you went to the pro bowl. how was it ??

This draft is going to have some real defensive talent available at the positions we need..trading down for extra picks would be nice, if McClain is on that board I don't see how u pass that up

bobbyd12 thanks for the kind words.

I do not recall him ever attacking me, but you were attacking me last week. But, if he did I could care less. I have more things to worry about then some joker attacking me on an internet blog. Do you think I believe this is NJ's blog? This blog belongs to the Miami Herald and no one else. I never have seen one of these blogs published by NJ or any other blogger on here. Armando is the one who writes the articles, so I don't think this is "his" blog.

Stop the Madness,

Just so you know. And I hope this clears it up.... There are people on this blog (not NJ) that will sign in under your name, sign in under someone elses name and pick a fight with you, say something just to get a rise out of you, and many other things to try to drive you crazy.

You have been a victim of all of this and it has been hilarious and a little disturbing.

Can we all please move on?

Carlito . I tend to ignore complete jacka$$'s and buffoons. She never talks about football. I hate to disappoint her but i don't swing that way. she might have to find somebody else on here that does. You're about giving out to much info. I might need bobbyd12 and get a restraining order, LOL !! :)

Indiana Dolfan, thats the thing i never said nj attacked you he used my name and attacked you and rob in oc but whats even more funny is the fact when i post my real name me and you have actually shared where to find dolhpin games on the internet

Probowl was allright, different, nobody was gonna lay the hit but I enjoyed it

notice since nj has been on, there has been no bs about that was a fake post by stop the madness at whatever time. like i said majority of the ppl here are cool but this guy actually thinks this his blog and y'all are his followers. but whatever!! i could easily stop it but y when everyday someone keeps it up

fake stop the madness at 12:17

Bobbyd12. glad you had fun. You're right about this draft being LOADED on defense. This is just fine for the miami dolphins thank you. This draft is going to go along way in fixing the d if miami plays it's cards right.

will pennington be qb for the vikes or cards next year?

I like hairy butts , ryan too

I don't know what game people watched, but Cody played 3 downs...not two and he played as well as any other NT in this draft. NT's don't stick out as a few other position's...they don't get much highlight...but they do serve a important purpose by freeing up the mike linebacker. Another point...much as been said about Cody'd weight, well have you ever seen Wilfork...he's listed at 325...I'll bet he's at least 350...that large item haning over his belt line isn't muscle..LOL

fake stop the madness at 12:13 and 12:17

trade the 12 pick if we sign 2 defensive aces in the F/A!! try getting both of tampas #2s and a fifth rounder!! you happy now?

LMFAO !! i'm glad i'm here for this Shyt !!. i keep missing it. LOL !!!!

you said a mouth full just now. some in here think a nt play all the downs anyway, but most come out on 3rd and long anyways

Ok, just making sure. Sarcasm gets lost in cyberspace sometimes.

mmmm, baklava.

Pro Bowl isn't football, not even a practice. Personally, that's why I never watch it.

fake stop the madness at 12:23.

Its not a party till the real stop the madness in blue show up! yaaaaaaaa booooooy!

when have nj ever missed a blog!! 2FLMAO

me love fat hairy butt like rex ryan , fat albert to

its gonna be hard for nj to contribute with all these screen names he's using at one time. must be hard to keep the lie going. but what baffles me is, he know which stop the madness is real and fake. next cardoza will be here

Mark, how did cody look?? LMFAO ! Nfl.com and many other scouts bashed him for his lack of stamina and he kept coming out. Some scouts not me downgraded to the 3rd round or later. They said he'll plAy about 15 plays a game in the NFL and you don't waste high picks on fat out of shape guys who will play that little. Thanks for stopping by IDIOTS !!!

do y'all notice how everybody question why i do this,but we just had nj on and he has never question why or what i plan to gain from all this. has nj ever backed down from a arguement!! silly or otherwise!!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!

Lmfao !! i'm glad to finally be here for this shiy and this buffoon still thinks it's me LOL !!!

" but cody wore down in the game " , chris cordero on above blog.

I forget which play it was but there was one where Cody tried a bull rush (when isn't he trying a bull rush) and the guard pulled and Cody well right on his face. It looked pretty funny. He's way too heavy. he's a very good athlete but he carried about 50 pounds too much right now. He hasn't showed that he's disciplined enough to make a very big investment in as far as a draft pick. 3rd round sounds tempting though if you can draft a Cam Thomas or a Terrel Troupe later on and you've already selected 2 LBs. I think that would be the only way I'd go near him.

im out!!! shoulders day

The SS has a link (click the blue) where you can comment/ask BP questions. Not that he will respond but It's worth a shot.

i neeeeed hairy butts, balz

Mark. Exactly !!!

I am stop the madness in blue... lmao, sorry dude, you are just to easy to f with.

I am not the one antagonizing you in black with all the "fake stop the madness at..." posts or the creepy perverted ones... i'm pretty sure thats aloco. but the point is, your an idiot get over it...

LMAO !! @ CARLITO.

After watching a ton of college ball again this year...I really like TCU LB Washington, he has great potential.
Needs a lil more weight to fill the trifecta mold as a 3-4 ILB, but he is hitting on all other areas.

Also I'd like to have his teammate TCU DE Hughes. He could be switched to OLB and flourish bigtime.
The guy is relentless. Could he be Tuna's next LT? :)

You see jackA$$$/. it's not me . I don't have the time for that BS ! I have better things to do than waste my time and play childish games with illeterate buffoons like you. It is FUNNY though , i must admit.

me need more pics of rex ryan butt. i love hairy butt

KID,

Good comments. gives me something to think about. Thats what is called adding to the BLOG

me like like lil fatboys

They're bashing rex ryan and his actions on the NY radio. NICE !! LOL !!!

FYI, CBS' draft database (not perfect but better than most and it's free) has Dan Williams #24, Terrence Cody #47. It used to be a lot closer than that. Cody's ranking is taking a major beating. The kids has lost millions already.

Mando broke NJ's heart when he selected Chris as Guest Blogger & unofficial scout.

NJ lashes out w/ faint praise & insincere, weak-ass compliments.

It's sad seeing someone pout after being dumped.
