What does "struggles to play in space" mean? "In space" is one of those football cliches that I still don't understand.

Also, in your third paragraph, I think you meant to write "he may have cemented that" rather than "he may of cemented that."

I guess with the Harrell experiment, I am not sold on BJ at #9. Seems to high for a DT. I am leaning toward an impact player either DE or LB at #9.

Crap, the Senior Bowl was yesterday? The only college game that I actually like, and I missed it.

Anyway, such a shame that Moala's stock went up. I hope he'd be a steal early in the 2nd.

Rock, I think it fair to say you didn't miss much. Personally, I found far more value in reading the various critiques and catching glimpses of the practices. The biggest thing I got out of the game itself was the revelation that Mike McCarthy isn't the only guy to overuse the concept of "pad level". (You'd a had to have watched to catch that bit of humor)

I think the game itself was more of a reaffirmation of things that most already know, including Moala. Raji's stock actually went DOWN as a result of the game itself, only because he had been tearing up the competition in practice, and showed little impact during play. To me the storyline was Brown was a better running back than I thought, and I'm glad my team isn't looking for a quarterback this year, although obviously the best ones weren't even there.

People playing out of position, with little practice, restricted schemes, etc....to me it renders the game itself somewhat meaningless, and I suspect that there are more reasons for the scouts to leave prior to the game itself other than the fact it's on film.

Practices? Could someone elaborate on what these practices are? I thought you normally don't practice immediately before games. Are they little scouting combine style exercises?

The JSOnline has an outstanding blog regarding "Senior Bowl Week", especially practices. I Didn't go back and re-read them, but I'm pretty sure Greg Bedard wrote them. Must read, imo.
