2014 Senior Bowl

The Jaguars and Falcons will coach the Senior Bowl.

The Jaguars were a lock, but the Falcons were considered along with the Oakland Raiders. Teams, like the Detroit Lions last season, have taken advantage of the process and closely evaluated the talent on their teams. The all star circuit is the first event where teams have heavy access to draft prospects.

Do you think he lasts to the middle rounds? He's already predicted to go in the 2nd-3rd range. I see the packers (always draft good WRs and could use some more. Local kid) and seahawks (need WRs and he was RW's favorite target in college) taking a shot at him as early as the late 2nd, seeing as how he may not last to them in the 3rd.

Another question I have for you MD: Do you think Kaepernick will properly utilize his skills (route running, creating separation in the middle of the field), or does Kaep need more of a physical type of receiver that can make tough catches, go up and fight for the ball, or beat the defense over the top (which I think Abbrederis could do very well)?

Got a feeling that JA is going to be hovering in that 90-130 pick range. Don't think he will run well at the combine, but the hands and on-the-field instincts in his private workouts will get him in that mid-round area. He is just a smart player, runs good routes, will be ready to play sooner that most WR's entering the league.

As for CK, he needs guys who understand the game playing with him. I think JA adds that to the team. CK is a hard worker, and he is going to improve from 2013, but he needs help. Pretty soon, this WR is going to turn over, so he will need some young legs to help. A Crabtree, Patton, JA combo is a nice young group of WR's for the team.

Thanks MD. I definitely share your thoughts on this. I'm really hoping for JA with the pick we grabbed from TEN. I also want a few other guys, also in the 2nd-4th round range. Big fan of Bryant, Landry and Adams. Not so high on the guys slated to go in the late 1st. Was wondering your thoughts on actually investing a high pick into a big RZ-threat TE. Specifically ASJ. I'm not crazy about McDonald, and I can't imagine anyone coming in right away and contributing more to the pass game than a guy like that. I also like Gator Hoskins as a backup TE/FB/HB, but that's a late round option, of course. Thanks!

Safety Jimmie Ward 5-11 192 from Northern Illinois is a player to watch at the Senior Bowl.

Over the last two years(21 games), he has put cornerback numbers in pass defense.

He has 31 passes defended--10 picks and 21 passes broken up.

He also has 127 solo tackles, 72 assists, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and 2 forced fumbles.
I'm interested in seeing how Billy Turner from ND State shows against higher level talent. He played well at offensive tackle against FCS opponents. He could become a solid prospect with a decent showing. Definitely a jump up in talent he will go up against.

Also watch Weston Richburg. He is technically sound and could be our next center.

Got to tell you, the list of defenders looks considerably stronger than the list of offensive players. May be a low scoring affair. The front seven is stacked with really intriguing guys. Hageman is the most JJ Watt- like player, physically (size, speed, strength, agility) since number 99 entered the league. All that is missing is Watt's motor.

MD, where can we find more of your analysis and input this year? Normally I see a number of threads, but none for this draft. Twitter?

Alabama redshirt junior OLB Adrian Hubbard has been added to the Senior Bowl roster.

Savage was able to amend the roster rules last year, which allows fourth year juniors who graduated in December to qualify for the event. Hubbard might be the lone prospect to fill this category this year. The Crimson Tide product never lived up to expectations, but a team will be interested in his frame upside. He needs to learn how to use his length and hands at the point of attack.

Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage believes there is a strong chance Alabama LB C.J. Mosley bypasses the event.

"C.J. is committed to us," Savage said, "but I honestly don't think he's going to end up playing. I think with his draft status in the top 10, top 15, no worse than top 20, I think ultimately he'll bypass the game." Other well known names likely not attending include T Jake Matthews, OLB Khalil Mack, OLB Anthony Barr, and QB A.J. McCarron. We like to see prospects compete on an even playing field, but they are likely receiving advice not to attend.

The Senior Bowl filled its last quarterback spot for next week by picking Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who will now get the rare chance to play in two all-star games.

Garoppolo is already in practice for the East-West Game in Florida and then will go to Mobile,
