    Any selections from the Senior Bowl?

    Haven't posted in a while but I enjoy reading the posts from the forum stalwarts. I don't know if I missed a thread on this topic since it is pretty old but who do you think we will draft from the Senior Bowl roster? We will probably choose someone we had a chance to get a good look at. If they are available I see the us taking a hard look at:

    Round 2: Jamell Fleming...Hard to pick between him and Alshon Jeffrey if they are both available. I don't think Fleming will last to the third.
    Round 3: Brian Quick...Odds are he will not be there at 66 like TebbyB's mock but I like him at that spot if we take Fleming at 35 (a bit early, perhaps)
    Round 5: Audie Cole...read that we may be high on him

    Are we going to have a Mel Kiper Wannabe thread?
    Live from the beautiful Mesilla Valley. And, no, you don't need a passport to come to New Mexico. :cool:

    We drafted 3 or 4 from last years Senior Bowl. You would think there is a player or two they licked from their week of coaching the team this year...

    After watching hightlights from the top 15 rated Wideouts I really liked Marvin Jones, WR, California. He was at the Senior Bowl and got a lot of praise. I hope we pick him up somewhere, not really sure what his value is, but the way his body moves he reminds me of a really good receiver.

    That's a scouting technique that I have not heard of before.

    I hope they don't reach for an attitude because his skills are pretty medicore. Drops a lot of passes and isn't really the type of deep threat we really should be looking for. Wouldn't mind the addition in the early or late 4th though.

    This was confirmed by Dave Te Thomas the other day in a chat. Said they were in love with Jones. Actually, that's probably where PA/D got their info...

    He did have a great week of practice, from what I've read. Didn't make much of an impression on my in the game though.

    Kiper just upgraded Quick bigtime. Had him initially going in the 4th-5th after the senior bowl, now he's rated as his #4 receiver ahead of Hill.

    I really like Quick and think he'll be a Sidney Rice without the injuries. Want him in the 3rd, don't really think he'll be there by then. Lots of upside IMO.

    In the same interview this morning with "Officer Gice (sp?)" they talked about TY Hilton. Right now I have us taking him with our fourth round selection (98). He seems like a playmaker and his upside in teh return game will be important for us.
