Default 2012 Senior Bowl Thread

I didn't see a thread regarding the 2012 Senior Bowl so I decided to make up where we can post notes and comment. I will be pulling my info primarily from draftcountdown.com but feel free to post relevant info from other sites.

http://draftcountdown.com/features/S...enior-Bowl.php

Here are some notes that caught my eye:

Quote:
Wisconsin OG Kevin Zeitler was incredible at right guard. Zeitler wowed onlookers and showed a real nasty streak in the 1-on-1 drills. Alameda Taíamu is just one of the guys who struggled to make anything happen against the Badger blocker. On the day Zeitler was only beat once and looked every bit the part of a first rounder.
Quote:
Michigan DT Mike Martin isnít flashy but more often than not he finds a way to get the job done. Martin went up against Mike Brewster four times and beat his rival in each instance. Martin isnít dynamic but few have better upper body strength.
Quote:
Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe displayed impressive quickness off the snap and appeared to shock some of the opposing blockers with his burst. In 1-on-1 drills Wolfe even beat Mike Adams off the edge at one point and was the only player to get the best of Kevin Zeitler. Wolfe is also stronger than he looks.

Wolfe is the guy I've been watching the last few days (3 games so far.)

He checks in at 6'4-1/2 and 286 lbs.
Good length and hands.

NFLDraftscout projects him as a 5th-6th rounder but Scouts Inc. sees him as a 2nd-3rd.)
He plays mostly 34 DE and 43 DT but also lines up at NT from time to time.

Good college production.

He looks like a good fit for our scheme.
I'm still evaluating him, but a 4th round grade is probably the lowest I'd give him.
He would be of great value there, I think (at the moment.)

His stock will rise as many will but at same time some others must fall. I see nothing staggering about his game other than he works hard & should continue to develop, becoming complete player. Time will tell, in large part upon who drafts him & what position he will play? For Texans I see him as quality depth 5 tech, which I doubt Smith would spend more than a 5th rounder on, even if he were to move up. I like him & would mock him accordingly.

I've always loved Mike Martin. The guy is a football player. He's not flashy and he doesn't really stand out all the time, but he ALWAYS does his job.

I watched one of his games a couple days ago.
Good first impression; I like him a lot.
Gonna watch some more when I have time.

Here are some notes that caught my eye:
Nice to see two of my guys (Zeitler and Wolfe) getting props.

If we resign Mario I expect we will loose one of our FA OL. Most likely Myers since he made the Pro Bowl and will likely cost more to keep. Hell we may loose Myers anyway. Look for Atlanta to make a run at him. If thats the case I wouldn't be surprised if we moved up for Zeitlers former team mate Peter Konz or trade back and go after Zeitler


You can never have enough quality DL that play hard and can get into the backfield. Wolfe is that kind of a player. I wouldn't be surprised to see us take him take him in the third round. Possibly the second if he impresses at the combine. After the Senior Bowl I see him moving up a few slots as some of the higher rated prospects like Winn fall a little.

I agree! Martin is tough and never gives up no matter what so just having him as a teammate can fire up other players who see is dedication and determination.

He is also a former wrestling champ so he understands leverage and can be an effective defensive line. Now only if he could use his hands more and develop some pass-rush techniques, it would greatly improve his draft stock.

The fact that Zeitler can take on a 337-lbs behemoth and hold his ground already has me excited to see him during the combine.
