Senior Bowl Standouts From A Pats Perspective

The Reese’s Senior Bowl happened in Mobile, Alabama on Saturday. Yes, Reese’s: because nothing says “elite college football” like a couple of guilt-inducing peanut butter cups in a non-biodegradable wrapper. The South team beat the North team, 20-10, on a day where offenses looked out of synch due to strong D and apparent lack of practice. Below, some notable players in whom...

Just like the North Roster, I decided to focus on ten prospects that have the most to prove this week.

Their sunburns were badges of honor. Evidence that they had listened when their favorite football coach told them to stay. Because when Nick Saban says stay- you stay.

It almost appeared that Mark Stoops had punched in the fumble cheats and the dropped pass cheats. But, Alabama got three quick in the second quarter...
