||Andre Roberts, WR, The Citadel
It's easy to understand why people underestimate Roberts' skills since
no NFL team has ever drafted a wide receiver from The Citadel. But Roberts
has used his speed, quickness at the snap, great body control and sure
hands to make the case that he's easily in the top five out of the ten
receivers in Mobile. An added bonus is his confident and reliable work as
a returns specialist.
||Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami
Graham was a basketball star at Miami who--after a seven-year hiatus
from football--hoped that he could return to football and play in the NFL.
Based on what we've witnessed in Mobile this week, he's one of the few
former basketball players who can pull off the late switch. He's a smooth
route runner with a big body and great hands. Our team has rated him as
the top tight end at the Senior Bowl.
||Donald Butler, LB, Washington
There was no doubt that Butler was a capable and reliable college
linebacker, but compared to the rest of the list, he was considered by
some to be "just a guy" who would be a late-rounder or undrafted.
But after watching him in action this week, our eyes were opened by his
focus, intensity, tackling technique and good instincts. He's easily in
the top half of this year's group of Senior Bowl linebackers.
