I still haven't watched the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl on my DVR, but thankfully writers Collin McCollough and Matt Grecco did. They chatted about the game with several of you readers who caught the game.
I asked a few folks to keep an eye on Derek Sherrod during the game. The Colts need a first round left tackle in the worst way. Sherrod is someone who may or may not be there at #22.
Other players that got the attention of our readers and writers:
James Carpenter, OL, Alabama
Looks like he could be a great OG for us if he is available late enough. Good footwork after 1st couple plays. Looks strong and quick.
Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson
Was in Locker’s face on that play. I’m a big fan of Jenkins, think he’s a perfect Colts 3-tech.
More after jump...
Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina
That’s why I’ve been touting him. Physical, quick WR with great ball skills.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
From Benjamin Savage
He’s obviously very raw, but I do like his arm strength and he’s very agile for such a large body.
Ricky Stanzi, QB, Iowa
From our ole buddy, Joe Baker:
His decision making was much better this year, but after a great 1st half his accuracy regressed all the way back.
Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor
From Nate Brummett:
Dude is a beast. Wish somehow we could at least consider him. Then Kendric Burney, CB, it would be a shame not to try to get him
Best write-up of the thread goes to chad72:
Also, Derrick Locke, RB from Kentucky, was a player Matt had his eye on.
So, this means James Carpenter, Jarvis Jenkins, Kendric Burney, Danny Watkins, Colin Kaepernick, Ricky Stanzi, Anthony Castanzo. Titus Young, Joe Lefeged, and Terrell McClain will all get draft profiles written-up for them between now and late April. Also, when the Scouting Combine starts, we will pay extra close attention to them.
Thanks to all who commented.
