Daymeion Hughes impresses coaches at Senior Bowl

Cal cornerback Daymeion Hughes has impressed coaches during the first two days of Senior Bowl practice according to Hughes 'shocked' everyone yesterday by measuring in at only 5'10" after being listed at 6'2". However, his height hasn't stopped him from making plays.

“All these guys out here are playing hard, but he’s (Hughes) kind of standing out a little bit,” said Bucs’ Defensive Backs Coach Raheem Morris. “He made a couple big plays yesterday and looked good again today. He’s a quick-feet guy. He’s a little bit of an undersized guy and all that stuff people keep talking about, but some of that stuff doesn’t even matter. I like the kid and I like the way he plays.”

Reggie Nelson in Kiper's top ten

Florida safety Reggie Nelson sits at number 7 on Mel Kiper's latest big board. Nelson has been one of the hottest prospects over the last few months and it shouldn't surprise anyone if he's the top safety selected in the 2007 NFL draft.

Nelson is an attacking safety with big time playmaking ability. He delivers big hits and isn’t afraid to lend help in support. Nelson’s biggest impact comes with his ability to make plays on the football. He has a nose for the ball, and really goes after the ball when it is in the air.

McCauley's disappointing senior season

Fresno State corner back Marcus McCauley had a disappointing senior season and was benched for his poor play. He was routinely beaten for big plays and didn't record an interception.

McCauley blames his poor performance on distractions and Fresno State head coach Pat Hill said it is common to see agents hanging out in the parking lot outside of the Bulldogs locker room. With teams placing a greater emphasis on character when ranking players, this can only hurt McCauley.

McCauley has the size (6-1, 205 lbs) and speed (4.4 in the 40) to be a dominating corner in the NFL, but is he still a first rounder after his poor senior campaign?

Reggie Nelson Hounded by Agents to Turn Pro

Florida's Reggie Nelson is an impact player at safety. He is one of 11 semifinalists for the Thorpe Award, which goes to the nation's top defensive back. The junior faces a difficult decision on whether to turn pro or return to UF and agents are hoping he enters the NFL draft. Nelson has been hounded so much by agents that he finally had to stop answering his cell phone. Nelson's mother has battled cancer for several years, and that will likely weigh on his decision to leave. If he enters the draft, he'll be a first day selection and is currently ranked as the #4 safety at FF.
