    I think Cody will look dominant in a situation like that

    And Tebow has to play imo, his whole stick is being Mr competitive and the ultimate winner, so if he doesn't play, that's a mark against his competitiveness and confidence.

    Mike Lombardi called out Tebow today, with that argument and others:

    Reminds me of a story I read long time ago about Mark Gastineux(sp). I forget the players in the story, but doesn't matter too much.

    Gastineux was from a small school and the personal guru at team X thought he had found a hidden gem, because he thought no one else knew of him.

    Personal guru gets a phone call from a Senior Bowl admistrator, "We're thinking of adding Gastineux to the roster,, Whadda you think about that".

    Personal guru, "Oh crap now everyone knows".

    I wonder who the Pats are happy about not getting the invite, another Volmer, maybe??

    Exactly. On the one hand, I want to see how guys like Austen Lane and Jared Veldheer do against top competition. On the other hand, I don't want the cat to get too far out of the bag, though there are really no true secrets anymore. But it's harder to evaluate prospects who don't get invites. Vollmer wasn't invited to the combine last year, for example, and we ended up getting arguably the best OT in the entire draft at #58.

    Tennessee RB Montario Hardesty and DT Dan Williams have been added to the Senior Bowl roster. Williams and Terrence Cody are the 2 best 3-4 NTs in the draft, so that should be quite a show.

    I am gong to pay more attention to the East West Shrine game this year. Withall the talented underclassmen expected to come out this year, this is where some senior hidden talent will come from.

    While I am somewhat skeptical of Scott Wright as a "draft guru/insider, et al", he does have a twitter account that can be informative on players declaring for the draft or accepting invitations to the Bowl Games.

    Ole Miss OG John Perry and WRs Shay Hodge and Dexter McCluster have been added to the Senior Bowl roster. It's interesting that McCluster was added as a WR rather than as a RB.

    Patrick Robinson running down Noel Divine - under a full head of steam - from behind, was very impressive. I can't wait to see what he runs at the Combine, but he made a bid to be the next super-high draft pick of the Oakland Raiders.

    Speaking of Tebow,,in the Florida-Cinci game the othe nite, Brian Billick gave a nice little summary of his NFL future,,

    I never liked watching Billick on the sidelines and all his annoyed looks, but I do enjoy him as the "game analyst"

    Some time late in the game he said, and am totally papraphsing,,

    "I don't know what one would think about drafting Tebow in the first round, he is a kid with great talent, but you would have work a long time on his mechanics and then you add to that the Florida offense does not mesh well with the standard NFL offense, so you would have to basically retrain your first round draft pick. Not sure how many teams would be willing to do that."

    That's the way I heard it, if someone can correct me go right a head.

    May explain our WR Jackson, too.

    The most hilarious thing about it is that the Patriots weren't exactly subtle about it. Hmmm, did no one else notice that Scarnecchia coached Vollmer in the Shrine Game, and then went back to Houston to work out Vollmer at his Pro Day? :singing:

    Yes, as a matter of fact some of us noted it last Spring. :cool:
