  • Jene Bramel: Sr. Bowl Day Three From the Trenches

    Jene Bramel: Sr. Bowl Day Three From the Trenches

    Bramel parcels his defensive observations into categories that you can use.   I like to think of the third day of Senior Bowl practices as Confirmation Day. Talented players keep their momentum and continue to win the majority of their reps. Projectable players improve as they adapt to better competition and respond to coaching. Others […]

  • Waldman: North and South Day 3

    Waldman: North and South Day 3

    Thoughts on Team Practices This Week The atmosphere of the two practices on Day 3 were polar opposites. The North squad operated at a slower pace and intensity on Thursday despite it being a padded practice. Although the coaching staff ran its players through many of the same drills, the pace and intensity wasn’t nearly […]

    Matt Waldman Day 2: North and South

    Matt Waldman views Day 2 as part of a week-long process. Several player takes inside, including game-tape examples from other contests. It’s another round of posts where we’re burning the late night oil. I wish I could share why, but the most I can say about my meetings with this person is that my readers […]

  • Sr. Bowl RB Roundtable Part II (Cobb, Langford & Abdullah)

    Sr. Bowl RB Roundtable Part II (Cobb, Langford & Abdullah)

    Last year, I created a roundtable discussion featuring Senior Bowl wide receivers. This year, I shared similar questions about technique and concepts to North squad running backs David Cobb, Jeremy Langford, and Ameer Abdullah. Their answers reveal that there is a lot more to successful running back play than meets the eye and many notions […]

  • Jene Bramel From the Trenches: Senior Bowl Day 1

    Jene Bramel From the Trenches: Senior Bowl Day 1

    Senior Bowl Defensive Notes – Day 1 The Senior Bowl schedule changed this year. Traditionally at mid-morning on Monday, the weigh-in was pushed back to Tuesday this year. It was also scheduled nearly two hours earlier, with bleary-eyed scouts and team personnel making up the bulk of a standing room only crowd. It didn’t take […]

  • Thoughts on Day 1 of the Senior Bowl

    Thoughts on Day 1 of the Senior Bowl

    I’ve grown to view the first day of the practice as a stage-setter for the rest of the week. With new teammates, new coaches, and a new city with a schedule packed with team and media events, expect players to be thinking a little more and maximizing their athleticism a little less when they take […]

  • What I’m Seeking at the 2015 Senior Bowl

    What I’m Seeking at the 2015 Senior Bowl

    Sure, I’m here for the prospects, but it’s far from the only reason. There are several dozen sites providing a strength/weakness introduction to this week’s Senior Bowl rosters. If you’re reading me then you’re probably reading many of them. Tonight, I’ll layout what I’m seeking this week from the pregame events. I’m not listing these […]

    Funny Thing Happened at the Senior Bowl . . .

    Only I didn’t get the full extent of the punchline until this evening. Media Night at the Senior Bowl is a loosely organized event. Imagine four long life rafts filled with sailors in a sea filled with twice as many sharks. In case you’re not too swift on the uptake this evening, the sharks aren’t […]
