Rising players in draft
From Sports Illustrated's website. These are players whose stock is rising with scouts from the Senior Bowl.
Red Bryant/DT/Texas A&M: Bryant was near dominant all afternoon, collapsing the pocket and driving blockers off the line. His main opponent during practice, center Kory Lichtensteiger of Bowling Green, was so frustrated he resorted to fisticuffs at one point.
Dre Moore/DT/Maryland: He displayed great explosion off the snap and was unblockable for most of the day. Moore also went hard for most of practice, something he's not known for.
Andre Fluellen/DT/Florida State: Fluellen is being compared to Darnell Dockett, another former Seminole , and today he showed why. He is another lightning quick defensive tackle who beat blockers with a great first step.
Harry Douglas/WR/Louisville: Douglas displayed outstanding speed and reliable hands. He tipped the scale at just 170 pounds Monday morning yet beat out several bigger defensive backs to make a number of tough receptions.
Robert Felton/G/Arkansas: Felton was stout at the point of attack and was one of the few blockers from the South who was able to slow down the assault of the defensive tackles.
Tashard Choice/RB/Georgia Tech: Choice was productive carrying the ball and catching it. He left a number of defenders grasping at air after making them miss tackles in the open field.
Donnie Avery/WR/Houston: Avery is the fastest player in Mobile and he showed why on a number of occasions. He possesses a second gear and consistently had defensive backs playing catch-up in drills.
Matt Forte/RB/Tulane: Forte is drawing comparisons to Dorsey Levens after the first two practices. He's displayed power, vision and surprising foot quickness carrying the ball.
