MOBILE, Ala. - For all but two participants, this week's Senior Bowl was a return to football after an absence of at least 15 days -- and in many cases much longer.
For Ohio State's Devin Smith and Doran Grant, it was back to work less than a week after playing in the national championship game.
"This makes the 16th game for me," Grant said. "And I can feel it."
But tired legs didn...
MOBILE, Ala. - To borrow a line from Akron's most famous resident, four-time NBA MVP LeBron James, they're just a couple kids from Akron, Ohio.
Doran Grant always believed he was supposed to be here.
Once Devin Smith really started liking football, he took off, too.
Now, Grant and Smith are done playing at Ohio State and set to participate in the Senior Bowl this week, a bridge towards...

The race for Ohio State's fastest student came to a conclusion today in Ohio Stadium, and the results may be closer than you'd expect.
The prelims were too close to call, but the final showed a clear winner.
OSU student Malcom Branson put up one heck of a fight, but in the end, he was no match for senior defensive back Doran Grant.
Although the fastest student in the race was a close...
The first half of Ohio State’s spring game was fairly boring and uneventful. Thankfully for the 50,000-plus fans in attendance at Ohio Stadium, there was some halftime entertainment.
Urban Meyer wanted to see who the fastest student on campus was, so over the past couple weeks, there were trials at the football facility. Students could come, run a 40-yard dash, and potentially...
