Fluker carries his weight well to be 355 lbs.

This stood out to me today...

-Jonathan Cyprien might’ve been the best-kept secret prior to the Senior Bowl, but that no longer will be the case. Extremely physical, aggressive and instinctive, Cyprien impresses in the way he can man cover the slot or play in deeper zone coverage. The body type and quick-twitch element that Cyprien possesses may even push Kenny Vaccaro for the top senior safety slot.

Not sure if anyone's watching the practices on NFL Network, but Jordan Poyer made a few really nice plays on the ball. I know he's been mentioned off and on here.

Poyer looks real good in coverage. The question about him is his tackling and these drills do not really show that.

I am really starting to love his teammate Markus Wheaton.

I'm really starting to like Short. I've liked his game speed in the scrimmage drills and he did very well on the OT-DT drills.

How about Quessenbery? He's going to have to bulk up to be on this team but he's looked very good for a late round pick. He's likely risen on a few draft boards after today. Looks very good at guard, not so much at tackle.

Wheaton is my favorite WR prospect for the value (assuming he stays in the second round range).

I think this is a great year to need a WR via the draft, the difference between the top 12 guys is minimal. There should be great value in the 2nd, maybe even the 3rd round.

I was impressed with him today, but have no clue on where his draft stock is

He's not at Senior Bowl, but a DE I'm gonna be following in the future is Tank Carradine of FSU. First round talent to some, but suffered ACL injury in bowl game so won't be at Combine either.

Where does Landry Jones expect to fall in the draft?

Some are saying 3rd round...

Patton and Wheaton both are very physical despite their size. If you watch video of him you will also see Patton is already a good run blocker as well.

Sanders Commings is a kid that I really like at that size.

Tyler Wilson is establishing himself easily as the top senior QB. I think he's the first QB that goes this year.

I know it's about the farthest thing from a 1st round need, but I'd still strongly consider drafting Ezekiel Ansah if there at 23. This guy is going to be a stud.

No way. We can't afford a luxury pick like that in the 1st round.
