Senior 2Tossing aside tradition, Senior Bowl weigh-ins and initial practices get underway today, Tuesday the 20th. Here is the latest word circulating around the event this morning.


– To expand on my earlier tweet about the Atlanta Falcons liking Shane Ray/DE/Missouri, of course much will depend on the potential hire of Dan Quinn. Sources close to the situation tell me Quinn is a stickler for arm length so Ray’s measurements, hand and arm, could play a big factor.

– Sources here in Mobile tell me Cedric Ogbuehi/T/Texas A&M hurt his knee during the season and the tear he suffered during the teams bowl game was actually the cherry on the whip cream.

– Senior Bowl director Phil Savage came down pretty hard on six players who seemed to lollygag on not accepting invitations to the week. One of the biggest head scratches was Corey Crawford/DE/Clemson who grades as a late round pick and should’ve jumped at the opportunity take part in the Senior Bowl.
