I am telling Hank and this Senior Bowl report is about to -- court lights of the game's most refreshing beer. I'm pleased to be joined by foxsports.com. Senior NFL writer Alex Smart as an Alex. You didn't know bill watching practice what's quarterback has impressed you the most. Joseph I must confess I didn't feel a whole lot of EJ Manuel during his career Florida State. After all alligator he's the enemy okay it when I did see him play against Florida earlier this season. -- responsibility -- one of the worst games of his college career in fact I've talked with Christian -- -- -- That's not the game Manuel I know. After watching him practice this week. I now understand what Christian was talking about Jimmy used a cream of this six quarterback spot that is here at the Senior Bowl. He's extremely athletic he throws the football very well and at six foot 421 -- doesn't count he has the size that NFL teams are looking for. They Tyler Wilson of Arkansas he throws a nice football not ideal height at six foot two but that's -- -- talk to get the job done. Another kid who impressed me Landry Jones and amateur in the bottom five franchise type quarterback in the future but there's a reason the kids started fifteen games at Oklahoma I think he would have a long career in the NFL one kid I was not very impressed what you're getting a lot of hype. Ryan massive from Sarah -- I know he's projected as a first round pick and in some mock drafts. This week in practice so far. I just haven't seen it in the greatness is quality quarterbacks on Saturday at the Senior -- they're gonna have a huge showcase their skills. And make an impression on NFL teams much like Russell Wilson of Wisconsin did during his time of the game last year. Admission that this strain at the Senior -- class. Joseph it's the bigs. Offense that live -- and defensive linemen and look I took notes I can actually go and talk about the of these kids for what that's good practice. And look let's start with two kids from Georgia that are likely going to be first round picks we're gonna start with speed. At the defensive end position. Cornelius Washington is doing an outstanding job getting pressure on the -- but he also was doing really well in one about one offensive line -- and if you look at for power. John Jenkins provided. All of six foot four. We 159. Out Larry warp for a Kentucky. This is the guy who I -- the four lines scouts from coaching and the coaches and scouts absolutely love this kid just like on the -- this week. But really nice job himself let's go ahead and switch over. To the north he Alex Okafor really looks like a solid maybe 510 year NFL veteran -- that that event but the kid who intrigues me the most. Barely played football at SMU came on -- he came to this country at the track got its markets aren't. From Estonia so stressful -- I tell you Fresno state knows who hits he set up shop at their backfield when he played in the dirt ball out of Hawaii. During the post season. This kid it. Reminds me a little bit. Of -- if -- Arizona Cardinals he's big at six foot 8277. Pounds he's gonna put on more weight. I look at it with QB very intriguing as a massive. -- -- -- And finally the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions staff are coaching the Senior Bowl. Does that give them an advantage come draft time. Big time -- big time when you look need look no further. That last year's Senior Bowl. The coaches from Washington and the Minnesota Vikings both those teams were able to rebound from disappointing 2011 campaigns and make the post season. And a couple of reasons kids that they scouted and worked with firsthand at the Senior Bowl who went out to join their squads. For the Minnesota Vikings it was Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith who made an outstanding person on Vikings coaches did a great job in the secondary this year as an impact safety. The Washington Redskins they're not only got to back up quarterback to RG three and Kirk cousins. But they also found a diamond in the rock we're talking about Alpert Morse from Florida Atlantic University. Work with this kid saw -- cutting ability he goes on the have a 15100 yard rushing season. For the Washington Redskins hey look disaster -- the Oakland -- Detroit -- look at those -- they have some big -- holes. But being able to coach the Senior Bowl is gonna help them try to be able to get back into the post season. Right Alex face -- the inside this segments and brats you backcourt like the game's most refreshing the year for Alex I'm -- we'll see you next time.
