Today is the start of one of the biggest weeks leading up to April's NFL draft and no I'm not talking about the Combine. I'm talking about real live NFL prospects strapping on their helmets and pads and going to work. The Senior Bowl, and more importantly the week of practices leading up to the actual game, can really help a draft pick soar up the charts. Just a couple of years ago the great DRC wowed scouts and proved that his stellar play at Middle Tennessee State would translate to the NFL. This year some of the very best seniors, including quite a few guys that we'll be talking about as potential Cardinals draft picks, from the world of college football will be on display. The official weigh-ins have already taken place and the first practice, aired on NFL Network, will start very soon. If you haven't already set your DVR's, go ahead and check it out.
Some of the interesting notes that have already come out of the weigh in:
- Terrence Cody, possibly the #1 nose tackle in the draft and apparently doing his best Andre Smith impersonation from last year, tipped the scales at a whopping 370 pounds. His primary competition for the #1 nose tackle on the board, Dan Williams, was a much leaner 329 (can 329 really be lean?).
- The consensus top overall guard, Mike Iupat, had freakishly long arms, 35 inches, which was also the widest wingspan of any offensive lineman there. That's only note worthy because with arms like that you're guaranteed to see him take some snaps at tackle now (think Brandon Albert in 2008).
Anyways I just thought I would throw this thread out there so anyone who wants to talk draft talk this week can do so here. Who you like? Who's impressing, who's falling?
