Senior Bowl Practice: Day Three
The big news today was Michael Robinson, QB, Penn State participating in drills at RB and WR at the request of NFL personal. Robinson has been horrible at the QB position all week. He's missed receivers, thrown interceptions and has proved to the surprise of no one that he has no chance of playing QB in the NFL. Fortunately for him NFL personal know that he is an incredible talent and think he has a future in the NFL at another position. In RB/WR drills he was very rusty and didn't show much. Had he embraced the WR position from day one of practices he could have helped himself earn a lot of money. Just ask Matt Jones, who last year at the Senior Bowl put on a show after switching from QB to WR. He ended up being a first round pick.
Another quarterback who is proving he has no business in the NFL is Georgia's DJ Shockley. He continued his awful play today by throwing inaccurate pass after inaccurate pass. His south receivers where more then a little frustrated that their chances to impress scouts were being literally thrown away by Shockley. It's doubtful that Shockley will even be drafted.
On the positive side of quarterback play; Croyle, Cutler, and Whitehurst all impressed. Brodie Croyle was once again the most impressive QB at either practice and has solidified his second round status. Jay Cutler showed off his cannon and is being talked about as a top ten prospect, passing even Vince Young on many draft boards.
Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami was at the top of the receiver class, showing an incredible burst off the line and getting easy separation from every corner. The NFL is a copycat league and with small wide receivers in vogue (see Moss' brother Santana and Steve Smith) look for Sinorice's stock to skyrocket.
Tye Hill, CB, Clemson was at it again; covering every receiver he came up against and picking off another pass. The match-up everyone is waiting to see during the game will be Sinorice Moss against Tye Hill.
Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College struggled again today and is falling on a lot of draft boards. With Tamba Hali's excellent play this week, Kiwi is now third on many scouts boards.
A few offensive linemen who stood out today; Nick Mangold, Taitusi Lutui, Jonathan Scott, and Daryn Colledge. On the defensive line, standouts included Kamerion Wimbley, Jesse Mahelona, and Manny Lawson.
