Senior Bowl - Players to Watch in Mobile

By John Murphy - Next Level Scouting

A one-hour flight carried me from Houston to Mobile, Ala., earlier today for the NFL’s version of a corporate convention.

According to a Senior Bowl official, more than 500 credentials are expected to be distributed by the time the weigh-in begins Monday. However, a number of potential first-round prospects are not expected to be in attendance. Players I have confirmed who are not expected to play: Virginia OT Eugene Monroe, Ohio State CB Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State LB James Laurinaitis, Wake Forest OLB Aaron Curry and Missouri TE Chase Coffman.

Which players could catch the attention of scouts this week? Here are a few worth watching:

Liberty U. RB Rashad Jennings, Cal Poly WR Ramses Barden, Connecticut OT William Beatty, Boston College DT Ron Brace, Ole Miss LB Ashlee Palmer, Oregon State CB Keenan Lewis and Western Michigan S Louis Delmas.
