Senior Bowl Notes-Payne

I'm including my complete notes from the 2012 Senior bowl but if you're not interested in reading the whole thing here are some highlights:

  • LB Nigel Bradham out of Florida State had a great game, shining on a South defense with three first rounders on it. Always seemed to be around the ball and looked very athletic. I like him a lot and think he can be a real weapon.
  • Another LB Bobby Wagner looked great in pass defense and led the game in tackles. Very athletic, very smart, should be gone on the second day.
  • Casey Hayward probably had the best game among corners, but I think Janoris Jenkins was still the most talented when considering the whole week. Jenkins made some great tackles, but he's got to have his head together to get taken in the first round.
  • Brandon Weeden was by far the most talented quarterback, despite the one interception. First round talent, but really old for a rookie. Just wouldn't justify taking a high pick on a guy that's already as old as veterans like Alex Smith or Philip Rivers.
  • The two Arizona wideouts had really solid games, with both Juron Criner and Gerell Robinson hauling in TD's. Criner could be a second rounder, Robinson probably looking at somewhere on Day 3.

First half impressions:

Bradham out of Florida State has been all over the field. Looking like one of the best defensive players on an incredibly talented defensive side. Mike Adams continuing to increasing draft stock. No quarterbacks looking that solid, but Russell Wilson can extend plays and Weeden definitely has an NFL arm. Cousins looked alright in limited time, Lindley hasn’t impressed at all. Wondering if Pead can be an impact player on special teams. 

North Poss. 7

  • Robinson dropped pass.
  • Doug Martin picking up the first down. Apparently best RB in practices.
  • Coples batted ball at LOS. 
  • Pass-catch Cousins to Graham, little pressure. Ingram pushed lineman back.
  • Cousins late to pass on wide open Robinson. Jenkins bit on pump fake. 
  • Broken tackle by Martin to pick up yardage.
  • Robinson runs 38 yards after catch to get into end zone. Martin had good block. Robinson needs to hold ball closer to chest.
  • South Poss. 8
  • Rainer has done nothing with the ball.
  • Foles in at QB.
  • Joe Adams another big pickup after the catch. Looking explosive. Slot guy at best
  • Glenn blocks well in run/pass. Versatile
  • Philip Blake called for holding.
  • Curry beat man again. 
  • False start Glenn. Just got early jump
  • Lavonte David whiffed on tackle, but got Ballard to run out of bounds.
  • Foles with the bad throw to Criner.
  • North Poss. 8
  • Wilson in at QB.
  • South d-linemen don’t seem interested except for Bradham, Coples on a few plays.
  • Take that back, Upshaw with the relentless sack. Wilson needs to get ball out sooner.
  • South Poss. 9
  • Rainey with decent punt return, still not impressed.
  • Foles to Adams. Adams can really run with ball after making catch. Perfect throw.
  • Bobby Wagner again on the pass defense.
  • Cam Johnson had good week in practice, then immediately jumps offsides.
  • Getting sloppy, Blackwell with the false start.
  • Foles bad throw on the run on 4th down, but had to make an effort. Definitely a pocket passer. Leonard Johnson (Iowa State) with the coverage.
  • North Poss. 9
  • Upshaw got to Moore, forced bad pass.
  • Brandon Thompson TFL. 
  • Ingram finally got in backfield, couldn’t make the tackle.
  • South Poss. 10
  • Foles sacked by Vinny Curry. Curry beat two blockers, forced ball out.
  • Foles to Criner. Good toss, protection. Fletcher beat.
  • Criner with the catch again. 
  • Creer makes nice run on toss, good hands, run right at Cole.
  • Adams has talent running with the ball. Too quick. Did it two plays in a row. 
  • False start Morris.
  • Foles to Criner for the touchdown. Foles very inconsistent on the drive, but made plays when needed to. Criner great hands, solid route.
  • North Poss. 10
  • Zach Brown missed tackle on tight end. Dropped head.
  • Hayward looked like had good coverage, but called for PI. Really close.
  • Holding on Osemele (Iowa State).

  • Upshaw got to Foles, forced Moore to hurry.
  • Quick fought for the first on a short catch.

  • Coples grabbed Pead. Beast. When he tries, can’t be stopped.
  • South Poss. 11
  • Weeden in to lead comeback attempt.
  • Bad pick by Weeden, completely under thrown. Has to put more air under that.
  • North Poss. 11
