    I read that Mack tore it up at the first practice.

    Udoh is an interesting prospect to keep an eye on.

    Some of the EW practice reports I read said that he’s impressing scouts and that he’s an excellent route runner.

    If Udoh gets invited to the Combine I'll be interested in how he performs. Is his footwork good/quick enough? Does he have the strength and the length for the NFL?

    The Draft Network's Joe Marino lists Elon T Olisaemeka Udoh as one of the winners from the practices ahead of the East-West Shrine Game.
    Marino writes that Udoh had an "incredible" week, and he certainly wasn't the only analyst who came away impressive with the 6-foot-5, 336-pound tackle. "His long arms, mobility and power were on full display during 1v1s and he shined in an overall underwhelming offensive line group," Marino writes. Udoh earned a promotion to the Senior Bowl for his work in St. Petersburg, and if he keeps impressing there, his draft stock is going to improve exponentially.Jan 18 - 3:36 PM

    Yea Lucky looks like this guy might take off on every bodies Draft Board like the Texans who's in the market for some OT help and that's a bunch of teams, and it says here he's also now gonna be in Mobile for the Senior Bowl.

    Maybe. But the Texans are in nickel more than the base 3-4, anyway.

    I think he’s saying the Texans had a visit with Risner. Because he’s a draft prospect, probably.

    I really like Jelks as a potential OLB. He was played out of position on the line (at 240 or 250 lbs) for much of his career at Oregon but they did move him around this season. He has the athleticism, I think, to be a possible replacement for Clowney (along with Ejiofor) if we are unable to come to terms with a long term deal or don't want to invest a ton in JD given his injury history.
