Daily breakdowns of practice from the North squad at the Senior Bowl

Antonio Allen DB South Carolina

Ht: 6012 Wt: 202 Hand: 9 3/8 Arm: 31 7/8

Tues: Showed flashes of skill all day.  Has a great burst to the ball out of his plant and displays a great degree of suddenness in his play.  Would like to see more consistency and play making but shows skill.

Wed:

———————————–

Dwight Bentley DB La-Lafayette

Ht: 5097 Wt: 176 Hand: 7 7/8 Arm: 29 1/2

Tues: Terrific all around day.  Showed good speed, the ability to run with receivers and real good ball skills.  Shows a nice feel for coverage and the ability to locate the ball.

Wed:

—————————————–

Casey Hayward DB Vanderbilt

Ht: 5110 Wt: 188 Hand: 8 7/8 Arm: 30 1/7

Tues:

Wed:

———————————————

Janoris Jenkins DB North Alabama

Ht: 5096 Wt: 191 Hand: 8 1/4 Arm: 30 3/8

Tues: Solid day and a prospect that shows brilliance at times.  Did a bit of clutching and grabbing but overall is fast and looks as though his ball skills are better now than they were in 2010, the last year he played for UF.

Wed:

———————————————

Markelle Martin DB Oklahoma State

Ht: 6006 Wt: 203 Hand: 8 1/2 Arm: 31 1/8

Tues:

Wed:

—————————————————

DeQuan Menzie DB Alabama

Ht: 5104 Wt: 195 Hand: 8 1/2 Arm: 29 5/8

Tues: Menzie is not much of a play maker rather a very steady defensive back with a good feel for the game.  Always in the proper position and shows a nice burst to the action.

Wed:

—————————————————

Ryan Steed DB Furman

Ht: 5103 Wt: 190 Hand: 9 Arm: 32

Tues:

Wed:

————————————————

Brandon Taylor DB LSU

Ht: 5111 Wt: 202 Hand: 9 1/8 Arm: 31 1/2

Tues: Was not much of a factor against the pass though he showed a lot of toughness and skill defending the run,

Wed:

————————————————–

Jake Bequette DL Arkansas

Ht: 6044 Wt: 264 Hand: 9 1/4 Arm: 32 1/4

Tues: Struggled early when he was used at linebacker. Not quick changing direction and struggled moving in reverse.

Wed:

————————————————-

Andre Branch DL Clemson

Ht: Wt: Hand: Arm:

Tues: Late scratch with a groin injury.  Replaced by Malik Jackson.

Wed:

——————————————————–

Quinton Coples DL North Carolina

Ht: 6056 Wt: 281 Hand: 10 1/8 Arm: 33 1/8

Tues: Coples looks like a beast but his play was inconsistent.  He’s got a large frame, plays with great balance and body control.  Coples is quick and easily moves about the field.  That said he was all too often easily controlled at the point by lesser opponents, which was very disappointing.

Wed:

——————————————————-

Jaye Howard DL Florida

Ht: 6030 Wt: 292 Hand: 10 1/8 Arm: 32 1/8

Tues: Howard flashed skill throughout the afternoon.  He’s incredibly explosive off the snap and was able to wedge through blocks up the field.

Wed:

—————————————————-

Melvin Ingram DL South Carolina

Ht: 6017 Wt: 276 Hand: 9 1/4 Arm: 30 1/2

Tues: When Ingram is on he’s unstoppable.  Several times he destroyed opponents in one-on-one drills displaying great quickness and the ability to make plays in every direction.  That said he is easily knocked from his angle of attack if he does not get the first step past lineman and often times gives up on plays.

Wed:

—————————————————

Tony Jerod-Eddie DL Texas A&M

Ht: 6040 Wt: 303 Hand: 9 1/4 Arm: 34 3/8

Tues: Looked heavy footed and unorthodox.  Got blocked from the action on one play by Chris Rainey.

Wed:

———————————————–

Tydreke Powell DL North Carolina

Ht: 6023 Wt: 309 Hand: 9 7/8 Arm: 31 7/8

Mon: Shows a good degree of quickness in his game but could not get off blocks at any point.

Tues:

Wed:

————————————

Kheeston Randall DL Texas

Ht: 6044 Wt: 297 Hand: 9 1/2 Arm: 33

Tues:

Wed:

————————————-

Brandon Thompson DL Clemson

Ht: 6020 Wt: 311 Hand: 9 5/8 Arm: 32 5/8

Tues:

Wed:

——————————————

Courtney Upshaw DL Alabama

Ht: 6014 Wt: 273 Hand: 8 5/8 Arm: 31 1/2

Tues: Out of a three point stance Upshaw looked powerful and was able to get a lot of push up the field- but again, lined up as a 3-4 OLB I have my concern.  He’s not real quick of fast and on several occasions could not catch ball handlers in backside pursuit.  Still think he’s a one-gap DE at the next level.

Wed:

—————————————-

Emmanuel Acho LB Texas

Ht: 6010 Wt: 235 Hand: 9 7/8 Arm: 32 1/2

Tues: Acho is not very athletic or fast but incredibly smart and instinctive.  He does a great job diagnosing the action and always puts himself in a position to make plays.

Wed:

—————————————–

Zach Brown OH Pittsburgh

Ht: 6013 Wt: 236 Hand: 9 3/8 Arm: 32 1/2

Tues:

Wed:

————————————

Sean Spence LB Miami-Fl

Ht: 5113 Wt: 228 Hand: 9 3/8 Arm: 30 5/8

Tues: Spence struggled throughout the day.  He just tried to outguess the opposition and on a number of occasions guessed wrong and got burnt.

Wed:

—————————————-

Vick Ballard OH Mississippi State

Ht: 5101 Wt: 217 Hand: 9 1/2 Arm: 31 1/8

Tues: Ballard struggled early catching the ball yet had a number of terrific runs as practiced came to a close.  Shows a variety of ball carrying skills; nice burst, elusiveness and power.

Wed:

—————————————–

Chad Diehl OH Clemson

Ht: 6014 Wt: 257 Hand: 9 7/8 Arm: 30 3/8

Tues:

Tues:

Wed:

—————————————————

Chris Rainey OH Florida

Ht: 5083 Wt: 178 Hand: 9 1/2 Arm: 30 3/4

Tues: Rainey was terrific all day.  He was used at receiver during drills and displayed terrific downfield speed and the hands to match.  He battled to make the reception and more times than not cam away with the ball.  He translates that burst onto the field when carrying the ball.  Solid day for Rainey.

Wed:

—————————————————

Jeff Allen OL Illinois

Ht: 6040 Wt: 306 Hand: 10 1/8 Arm: 33 1/4

Tues:Allen was planted at left tackle and to his credit did a solid job all day.  He showed the ability to handle Quinton Coples on a number of occasions and displayed both strength and technique.

Wed:

—————————————

Will Blackwell OL LSU

Ht: 6034 Wt: 314 Hand: 10 1/2 Arm: 33 3/4

Tues:

Wed:

————————————————-

Philip Blake OL Baylor

Ht: 6023 Wt: 312 Hand: 9 3/4 Arm: 31 7/8

Tues: Fundamentally sound lineman that squares into opponents then shows the ability to control the point.  Solid day.

Wed:

—————————————————-

James Brown OL Troy

Ht: 6034 Wt: 307 Hand: 10 1/4 Arm: 33 3/8

Tues:

Wed:

————————————————–

Cordy Glenn OL Georgia

Ht: 6054 Wt: 346 Hand: 10 Arm: 35 1/8

Tues: Really looked comfortable inside at guard.  Terrific strength and easily held the point of attack.  Moves his frame relatively well.  Solid job by Glenn.

Wed:

————————————————–

Ben Jones OL Georgia

Ht: 6025 Wt: 304 Hand: 9 5/8 Arm: 32 1/4

Tues:

Matt McCants OL UAB

Tues:

Wed:

—————————————————–

Zebrie Sanders OL Florida State

Ht: 6054 Wt: 308 Hand: 11 Arm: 34 5/8

Tues: Sanders looked good in the early going but fell off late in practice.  He’s a good athlete but really needs to improve his strength and blocking balance.

Wed:

—————————————————-

William Vlachos OL Alabama

Ht: 6003 Wt: 306 Hand: 9 1/8 Arm: 30

Tues:

Wed:

—————————————————–

Nigel Bradham OLB Florida State

Ht: 6015 Wt: 237 Hand: 10 3/8 Arm: 33 1/4

Tues: Bradham is a tremendous athlete and showed terrific movement skills on the field, going sideline-to-sideline and covering a lot of area on the field.  He gets depth on pass drops and shows speed to the sidelines.  Didn’t make huge numbers of plays on the ball yet was always around the action.

Wed:

——————————————————

Keenan Robinson OLB Texas

Ht: 6031 Wt: 240 Hand: 9 7/8 Arm: 32 3/4

Tues:

Wed:

———————————————–

Nick Foles QB Arizona

Ht: 6050 Wt: 244 Hand: 10 3/4 Arm: 33

Tues: Not a good day from Foles and has under-delivered thus far.  He seems to be over throwing the ball and his high point of release has passes sailing over the intended targets.  A number of scouts have also told me they were surprised that Foles, for such a big guy, does not have a quicker release or the ability to get rid of the ball with a flick of the wrist.

Wed:

——————————————-

Ryan Lindley QB San Diego State

Ht: 6036 Wt: 229 Hand: 10 1/8 Arm: 32 1/4

Tues: Lindley was solid, not spectacular today.  His short passes were on the mark and had good pop to them.  He also displayed a lot of skill throwing on the move and easily got outside the pocket.

Wed:

———————————————

Brandon Weeden QB Oklahoma State

Ht: 6034 Wt: 219 Hand: 9 1/2 Arm: 30 5/8

Tues: Weeden was solid today.  He has a huge arm and easily drives the ball downfield or gets the pass through the tight spots.  He’s also accurate and gives his receivers a chance to make the reception.  One thing that was a bit concerning was Weeden will put the ball into coverage and force the issue when he doesn’t have to.
