Senior Bowl: Linemen, receivers and oh so much more

Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Niles Paul was another receiver who performed well at the Senior Bowl.

Reports from Mobile after the first day of practice for the Senior Bowl flooded the interwebs today. And that means plenty of 2011 NFL Draft prospects to talk about this week. Let's hit the highlights of a few more reports from Senior Bowl practice and get the word on a few more prospects that could potentially be future players for the St. Louis Rams

Boise State WR Titus Young had people talking yesterday with his inspired play. Add Wes Bunting from the National Football Post to list of scouts and draftniks who agree. Bunting comments on his speed, savvy route running skills and polish. 

Another receiver mentioned by Bunting is Nebraska's who caught everything thrown his way, as well as his 225 lbs frame and how well he can separate himself from defenders. Paul has two alcohol violations and questions about his off-field demeanor. 

Chad Reuter reports on the offensive linemen from the South squad, devoting most of his column inches to interior linemen. Baylor's Daniel Watkins could be a top 50 pick, according to Reuter, and had it all on display yesterday. He also mentioned Alabama's James Carpenter (strong, tough, good work ethic) and Auburn's LT Lee Ziemba, who worked on the right side yesterday and will probably get a look at guard this week too. 

Cal defensive line Cameron Jordan continues to earn praise with his work so far at the Senior Bowl. According to this report from Draft Countdown, he spent most of the day behind the line of scrimmage. Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan and Oregon State DT Stephen Paea also garnered some positive attention for their play.

Oklahoma RB DeMarco Murray was considered by some to be the best running back on the field yesterday. 

Hmm, some early talk that Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller might be a better fit in a 4-3 defense than as the rushing LB many had him pegged for. It's early on that though. Nevertheless, he did show out nicely in coverage, even nabbing an INT.
