the game we get to see how practice transferred to playing speed, how fact prospects picked up NFL coaching, stuff like that but still its only one
game. People have all kinds of opinions, like after watching any game regarding how some players performed, here is one example form Walter Cherepinsky http://walterfootball.com/seniorbowl2012game1.php
with regards to in
the game grade, hence I doubt Texans really elevated his grade based on his performance in
the Senior Bowl as much as his performance all week in practice & previous tape from past seasons, IMO.
They must watch the all-22 tape
And I'm sure they watched everything.
As far as the dropped pass and the INT are concerned, I've already mentioned them.
The more important thing, as you said, is to see his playing speed.
He got open due to his ability to get seperation with a wicked plant-and-cut at the top of the route.
