They're airing all the practices every day this week on NFL Network, and the actual game is this saturday.

There are two teams, north and south. The south practice is coming on right now (5pm) and the north practice was at 10:30am this morning.

Just thought some of you might want to watch it.

I'm following the Senior Bowl for the website I write at.

That's an article I wrote for the first two days.

One of the featured prospects from the NFL Network's coverage of the Senior Bowl [... did I just use "the" three times already? ...] that caught my eye was Larry English.

It sounds like he has a good chance to land in the NFL as a 3-4 outside rusher (comparisons made to DeMarcus Ware, although English doesn't project THAT high).



Right now he projects to a 2nd round pick. Given our switch in defense, I'd think the Packers would at least take a look at him.

You know what's frustrating with Larry English? The coaches aren't letting him play much standing up. All of his pass rushes have come from a three point stance. I want to see him stand up and rush the passer that way, but Cincinnati's coaches haven't given him that oppurtunity. It's very disappointing.

We will probably get to see him in the actual game from the standing position. It's Saturday at 6:30pm I think.

Also, I like the kid Ayers from Tennessee. ( I think that's his name. He wears #91 in the practices )

I just thought I'd let you know that you have a typo for Marcus Freeman...

Quote:

Marcus Freeman, LB, Ohio State - Plays at good bad level and wraps up well. I thought he was the best in the linebacker drills.


I think you meant pad....

Not the dreaded pad level term... *visions of Mike McCarthy pressers rushing into my head.. *

On a serious note.. Porky you in Mobile this week?

The editor should pick up on that. Laughing

We're using NFL Network to the best of our abilities.

Couple of notes on players interviewing in Mobile with the Packers.. I sense a theme.. we already had reports of them sniffing around the 3 USC backers..

UConn's Cody Brown DE/OLB (Tweener with some pass rush ability)
LSU Darry Beckwith ILB - rated around the 3rd best interior backers
Cal's Zack Follett - OLB - Rated highly
Clemson James Davis, RB
Georgia - Mohamed Massaquoi, WR Wink

Not that it means a whole lot, but the linebacker theme is catching my eye.

Hey Foster... maybe all my rants about the backers and their play this season weren't that far off. Laughing

With the #9 spot in the draft we should be able to get some higher talented linebackers than that.

They are scouting for later rounds than just the 1st..

BTW.. some pretty talented players in that group.

I never disagreed with you, but judas h priest it would be nice for SOMEONE to remember that our offensive line also sucks. Hey, are any of you guys following the blogs at National Football Post's site? They are putting up some very informative stuff, imo.

I think we all agree that the O-line could be improved, but it's also worth noting that even with below average line play, the offense was still very successful. Tackle certainly needs to be addressed at some point in this draft with Clifton and Tauscher's age and contract status, but it doesn't necessarily have to be the first round. Would this line.....

Clifton - Spitz - Wells - Sitton - Colledge

.....be significantly worse than the makeshift lines we had last year?

I'm on board with taking one of the big OTs if they are still available, but I could make a good case for DT, DE, LB, and to some extent, CB too.

Agreed my friend agreed.. just reporting the things I hear..


Haven't heard them sniffing around any olineman.. the more I read and see of the Beatty kid out of UCONN, the more and more I hope he sneaks into the second round for us.. quality tackle.

Damn does UCONN have some talent hitting the NFL these days.
