Senior Bowl North Tuesday practice

Posted by johnmurphyshow on January 21, 2014 – 1:52 pm

The Senior Bowl North team wrapped up Tuesday practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile with some rough edges on offense.
It was tough sledding for the North offense especially through the air. Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd was the most effective of the three North quarterbacks, and that’s not saying much.
Wisconsin wide receiver Jared Abbrederis was able to shake loose a couple of times downfield and went up to snare a high pass along the sideline from Boyd. But Abbrederis looked a shade smaller than his listed height of 6-2, and did not look like he could fly down the field.
UCLA wideout Shaquelle Evans had some good moments and looked fluid and fast in his routes. Unfortuately, Evans was unable to make any big plays downfield however thanks to some erratic passing and underthrown deep passes.
Lockport native David Fluellen made one good run when a huge hole opened up on a stretch play to the left side during the team portion of the morning workout. He credited his offensive line with opening up the hole when he spoke with us following practice and he was able to pick up good yardage.
On the defensive side of the ball, massive DL Ra’Shede Hageman gave blockers fits during one on one pass rush drills. Hageman is an impressive specimen, standing 6 feet, 7 inches tall.
And Wisconsin LB Chris Borland was a standout, using his great instincts and speed to fly around the field. He seems to have a knack for quickly diagnosing plays and getting to where the action is. Borland’s height, (5’11”) will be a drawback for him in the draft.
The South team hits the practice field later today in Mobile.

Lockport native gets a Senior Bowl shot

Posted by johnmurphyshow on January 20, 2014 – 1:00 pm

He was a late add to the Senior Bowl roster, but Lockport native David Fluellen is here in Mobile.
The Toledo running back will take a crack at impressing the NFL scouts and coaches who’ve assembled at the Senior Bowl.
Fluellen was an All Western New York performer at Lockport High School before going on to star at the University of Toledo.
The 6-0, 215 pound running back averaged 5.95 yards per carry at Toledo, second all time in school history. He suffered an Achilles injury late in the season that limited his play in three games and part of a fourth.
Fluellen has been a first team All-Mid American Conference performer the last two years. It’ll be interesting to see who he stacks up against top flight competition at the Senior Bowl.
