What to watch for: Senior Bowl 2011

Ryan Succop, former Mr. Irrelevant of 2009

After going over the practice tape and following throughout the past season, I have listed each player by position, and also have listed their possible draft stock. The NFL Draft is broke up into three separate days: day 1 being round one, day 2 being rounds two and three, and day 3 culminating the final rounds of three through seven. From the cash in winner at pick number one, to Mr. Irrelevant*

Possible Day 1* Prospects to watch during the Senior Bowl Game
LB: Von Miller (TAMU)
DE: Cam Jordan (Cal), Ryan Kerrigan (Purdue), Christian Ballard (Iowa)
OT: Derek Sherrod (MSU), Gabe Carimi (UW), Anthony Castonzo (BC), Nate Solder (CU)
J. Locker, above needs to answer questions about his accuracy within the pocket.
QB: Jake Locker (Wash.)
WR: Leonard Hankerson (Miami)

*Day 1: First Round of the 2011 NFL Draft

Possible Day 2* Prospects to watch during the Senior Bowl Game
LB: Mason Foster (Wash.), Kelvin Sheppard (LSU), Greg Jones (MSU), M. Herzlich (BC)
3-4 OLB: Brooks Reed (Arizona), Sam Acho (UT), Jeremy Beal (OU)
OT: Jason Pinkston (Pitt), James Brewer (IU), Demarcus Love (Ark.)
OG: Danny Watkins (Baylor), John Moffitt (UW), Clint Boling (Georgia), R. Hudson (FSU)
DE: Allen Bailey (Miami), Pernell McPhee (MSU)
DT: Jarvis Jenkins (Clemson), Phil Taylor (Baylor), Terrell Mcclain (USF)
CB: Kendric Burney (UNC), Rashad Carmichael (V.Tech), Jalil Brown (CU)
S: Quinton Carter (OU)
QB: Colin Kaepernick (Nevada), Andy Dalton (TCU), Ricky Stanzi (Iowa), C. Ponder (FSU)
RB: Kendall Hunter (OSU), Demarco Murray (OU)
WR: Titus Young (BSU), Austin Pettis (BSU) Vincent Brown (SDSU), Niles Paul (Nebraska)
TE: Lance Kendricks (UW), Lee Smith (Marshall), D.J. Williams (Ark.), Luke Stocker (Tenn.)
D.J. Williams of Arkansas, is one of my favorite H-back/TE prospects
Williams, from what I hear, possesses 4.6 speed
 *Day 2: Rounds 2-3 of the 2011 NFL Draft

Players who need a big game
Jeremy Beal (OU)- Where does Beal best fit into the NFL game?
Greg Salas (Hawaii)- Is Salas just another Hawaii system receiver or the next Davone Bess?
Jake Locker (Wash.)- Can Locker throw within the pocket accurately versus skilled D?
Colin Kaepernick (Nevada)- How much developing will teams need to spend on Kap?
Andy Dalton (TCU)- Another spread QB or a budding NFL starter?
Christian Ponder (FSU)- Can Ponder stay healthy and does he have the arm strength?
Demarcus Love (Arkansas)- An awful week of practice, is he a tackle or guard prospect now? 
James Brewer (IU)- Are his foot injuries a thing of the past?
Casey Matthews (Oregon)- Is Casey gifted enough to be a starter like his brother Clay III?
Can Casey reach the heights of his brother's, Clay Matthews, pro career?
