Bowe and Carriker hot, Palko and McCauley not


SI.com lists it's risers and sliders after two days of the Senior Bowl.

Risers of note include Adam Carriker and Dwayne Bowe.

Carriker impressed right out of the gate during the weigh-ins, measuring up at 6'6" 290 with an impressive build and huge reach. During practice he's been the top player on the field and impossible to stop. He has a great combination of power and speed.

Bowe also awed during weigh-ins. Looking more like a linebacker then a receiver at 6'2" 220. He's shown great speed and soft hands during practice.

Sliders of note include Marcus McCauley and Tyler Palko.

McCauley is following up a poor senior season with a poor Senior Bowl. He's getting beat deep and underneath. Despite his remarkable phiysical tools, he needs to pick up his play or his stock will really suffer.

Palko just doesn't look like an NFL QB. He's undersized. His arm is weak and inaccurate.

Lions dining with Thomas, not looking at QBs


The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Detroit Lions team officials, including Matt Millen, took Wisconsin tackle Joe Thomas to dinner Monday night.

Tuesday at the Senior Bowl offensive coordinator Mike Martz said the Lions needs were "everything, except for a quarterback."

This could be a smoke screen, but it looks like the Lions are satisfied with Kitna as their QB and will look to address other needs with the 2nd overall pick in the draft.

carriker has impressed, no shock there. i've been saying it all year long, the guy's been double-teamed like crazy and offenses have actually gameplanned their scheme around him. that's absurd. he's a beast.

Kevin Kolb, Houston - flutterballs and one INT, overthrew deep ball, underthrew swing pass, good mechanics, mobile, good footwork in 3,5,7 step drops pushing back from center, good timing
Quote:
Jordan Palmer, UTEP - way too many flutterballs (although some were accurate), little zip on any passes, stationary QB, too many interceptions - caused not by trying to get ball into small window, or outstanding individual plays, but just not seeing defenders doing their job, no anticipation of defense, consistent in his inconsistency

Quote:
Dwayne Bowe, LSU - fast, quick, agile, natural hands catcher, crisp routes, Boldin-esque frame, but faster, tipped possible INT away from Michael Griffin to himself making catch while falling on his back, got 7-8 yards separation easily on go route, but didn't make catch, lots of attention by teams after practice, best WR on field today, extremely coachable, SF WR said "way to be coachable" after Bowe instantly applied suggestion on next play (pat kirwan commented on this too), got low to catch ball just off ground very easily
Quote:
Buster Davis, LB, Florida St - plays with mean streak, leapt well to deflect pass, stumbled over pad in drill, corrected by Singletary, but then had to stay upright to complete drill instead of getting low, suggest that he can't fire off ball, susceptible to getting run over while getting through trash, overachiever
Quote:
Ryan Kalil, C, USC - handled Tank Tyler again better than any other OL
Quote:
Tony Ugoh, OT, Arkansas - pancaked Chase Pittman (almost a body slam), very quick out of stance and stunning punch
Quote:
Patrick Willis, LB, Ole Miss - class of South LBs, very quick feet in drills, great leaping interception
On NFL Network last night they had a recap of the day's paractices....The way they were making it seem, Patrick Willis is rapidly shooting up in the draft..

No kidding. I've read reports from 4 different internet scouts, and Troy Smith, Drew Stanton, and Kevin Kolb have been mentioned as the best QB out there:

GBN Report
Quote:
No problem though for Ohio State QB Troy Smith who may be under as much scrutiny as any player at this year’s Senior Bowl. Smith, though, emerged as at least the top QB so far in Mobile as he threw the ball with authority and also showed good leadership skills on the field.
Scout.com
Quote:
Former Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton, who many believed would have been a first round pick had he left East Lansing after his junior season, might become one anyway.

Stanton is raising eyebrows and his profile after a solid day of practices in Mobile, AL., the site of the annual Senior Bowl. The solid efforts are big because Senior Bowl practices are run under the direction of coaching staffs from the NFL who have direct input into their team's draft day decisions.

While their have been conflicting reports, including one by Scout.com's Miller Safrit of theNFLexperts.com who is covering the practices for Scout.com, another report had Stanton outperforming rival Troy Smith due to Smith's elongated delivery.

One scout told reporters if Stanton keeps up his production, he could be the consensus third quarterback taken - presumably behind LSU's JaMarcus Russell and Notre Dame's Brady Quinn.

Stanton, by contrast according to the report, showed a compact delivery, quick release and good accuracy. Stanton was also visited on Tuesday by front office representatives of the Miami Dolphins.
Draftdaddy.com
Quote:
Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb also looked crisp and polished, throwing tight spirals as well as some nice intermediate and deep routes. He had some difficulty throwing on the run but to say Kolb is playing better than any quarterback on either roster is not an overstatement.
That's not surprising. There are 32 teams and each has their own opinion on who is the #3 QB. Why should the internet scouts be any different?

Bowe looks like he's rounding out into the 3rd or 4th WR taken. With Bowe the most physical of this bunch, somebody is going to like him a lot. Other than CJ, I think he's most likely to have an immediate impact.

that's pretty much why it's impossible to make an accurate mock draft.

I think the key is to not look at the conflicting reports, but instead look at what the consensus opinion is from multiple sources. While reports have been giving differing grades to the QBs performances, almost every report I have seen has said that David Irons, Adam Carriker, Dwayne Bowe, Ryan Kalil, Brandon Meriweather, and Patrick Willis have consistantly stood out in practice so far. On the other hand, it appears that Tank Tyler, Marcus McCauley, and Mansfield Wrotto have proven to be the biggest disappointments through two days of practice.

Troy Smith, QB, Ohio State: Smith might be putting some teams' fears to rest after the BCS game. He has shown an NFL arm and a pretty good release. His 6'0 height is a concern, but it won't kill him come draft day. I think he is solidifying himself in the second round or early third at worst.
Quote:
Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State: While "standout" might not be accurate, he did have a solid practice on Tuesday. McCauley is better in press coverage and might be a better cover 2 corner than man corner.
Quote:
David Irons, CB, Auburn:Irons has shown good instincts and has done very well in one-on-one drills. He has shown good hips and a good break on the ball. The CB position is loaded with guys bunched together and Irons is helping himself quite a bit.
Quote:
Aaron Ross, CB, Texas: Ross has caught everyone's attention with his ability to lock up in man-to-man and his physicality in press coverage. Scouts who have done their homework already know his toughness is one of his strengths and he is likely cementing his spot in the first round in Mobile.

i haven't heard a single positive thing said about meriweather. i've heard he's too frail, looks like a corner, plays at one speed and doesn't have the instincts you want from a safety.

Adrian Peterson in 1st and Troy Smith in the 2nd for the Texans? While I would like to upgrade our defense, if those two were available I think the Texans may have a hard time passing on them. There's still free agency though.
