The Senior Bowl is just about over, so i thought i would put my views as to who played the best etc.

Players that moved up imo...
Freddy Roach, LB, Bama- tough
Max Jean-Gilles, OL, Georgia- consistent
Marcus McNeill, OL, Auburn- powerful off the ball
DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis- best back i have seen in a while from college
Devin Aromashodu, WR, Auburn- good hands
Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami- hes got some quick feet
Brodie Croyle, QB, Bama- great presence in the pocket w/ time
Jahmile Addae, DB, WVU- ball hawk
Daniel Bullocks, DB, Nebraska- special teams deamon
Tamba Hali, DL, PSU- never stopped once
Nick Mangold, OL, Ohio St- beast in the middle
Jerome Harrison, RB, Wash St- small but tough and packs a punch

Players movin down...
Mathias Kiwanuka, DL, BC- i didnt hear his name
Tye Hill, DB, Clemson- he got beat bad on one play
Marcedes Lewis, TE, ucla- one catch i believe... bad blocker
Darrell Hackney, QB, UAB- no accuracy wat so ever
Orien Harris, DL, Miami- i didnt see much from him that the scouts were tlakin bout
Elvis Dumerville, DE, Louisville- who?... didnt hear his name either
Greg Blue, DB, Georgia- he is a dirty player imo... dont like him
John Torp, P, Colorado- that colorado air helped his stock
Derek Hagan, WR, Az St- bad hands apparently, but made 1 nice catch
Michael Robinson, QB, PSU- so wats he gonna play? QB, RB, WR, S? 2 much hassle 4 me

DeAngelo Williams: Great back, saw him play in person, but not for the B&G. We already have a NFL proven, less expensive (Williams signing bonus will be HUGE!) in Willie parker.

Martin Nance: Slipping off everyone's radar. Why? Can he regain his form if reunited with Big Ben? But why is he slipping? I saw that his 4.37 speed has been downgraded to 4.5, due to his 2004 injury I guess, but at 6-4 and 210, and with the past repoire these 2 guys share...wow!

Nick Mangold: I already projected him as a late 1st rounder, and was mocked for it, but watch his stock keep rising. Smart, savvy, productive, and tons of upside, very coachable and can probably add another 10 ponds without losing quickness and speed (he runs a sub 5 40 which is fast for an OL). Could be the next great Steelers C.

Gabe Watson: Man, what a boom or bust. In the right environment, with some good coaching and conditoning, I could see him playing any of our 3 DL positions, NT most naturally, but he's lazy, overweight and inconsistent. Could be great, but...

Tamba Hali: If only we played a 4-3. He's too big to play OLB, and I don't want to ask him to lose 20 lbs and play standing up (see Alonzo Jackson), nor do I want to see him gain 30 lbs and lose what makes him great now.

Cedric Humes: NFL RB? Don't know. He wasn't a featured back at VT, but he's big (6'1" 233) and he looked strong today. White will go fast, and this to me looks like the next best big back...could be a steal later.

Mathias Kiwi was injured and didn't play, but he did get handled by D'Brickashaw all week in practice

I think Hank Baskett's stock definately rose, and I wouldnt mind seeing him come here... Same with Martin Nance

While Mangold's stock did rise, I wouldnn't mind if we didnt get him, as long as we got one of the 3 big Centers coming out in this draft; Eslinger, Mangold, or Degory...
