MOBILE, Ala. -- Alright, so after shaking off the cobwebs and getting my morning run in, we're ready to go with a big Day 2 at the Senior Bowl. And after skimming some of the comments, I see you guys would like me to have my eye today ... On the edge rushers.
Won't be a problem, with one caveat -- Many of the best of them skipped out on this event. The guy pictured above, Eric Norwood, is a very interesting prospect, but would require the Patriots breaking their mold a bit for the OLB/DE hybrid position, since the relentless Gamecock rush man stands just 6-feet tall. I think they would've done it for Larry English, had he been available to them last year, and maybe they'll do the same for SEC's all-time sack leader.
I'll also check out Michigan's Brandon Graham at the morning practice, and South Florida's George Selvie in the afternoon, among others.
Here are the rosters, if you guys want to look them over and pass on any more requests from here.
Among those not here are Georgia Tech's Derrick Morgan (a probable Top 5 pick) and Florida's Carlos Dunlap (another guy who'd probably require a trade up). Also out? A guy at this spot I really think they'll like ... Texas' Sergio Kindle (Click on that link and watch. Seriously). Strong tie there with Kindle's Will Muschamp pedigree, and a big, athletic, versatile player that would seem to fit right in.
I'll be back in a while.
