The East-West Shrine Game kicks off in a little more than an hour, but for some reason the interwebs are already buzzing with Senior Bowl talk.
You people and your addiction to football. Shame. That said, let's join the fray.
Came across this post of players to watch at the Senior Bowl from Wes Bunting at the National Football Post. He mentions Miami DT Allen Bailey, who has loads of raw talent, but still has scouts wondering where he might fit at the NFL level, either a DE or DT. He could probably add some weight and be a DT in a 4-3 system like the Rams run. It's also worth pointing out that the Rams probably have some flexibility with rookies on the DL in that they can draft a guy with lots of talent but needing polish.
