Senior Bowl Preview
Some of my favorite days of the year is coming up fast. The combine and the NFL draft. These are basically national holidays in my mind and everyone that wants it should get a day off work. Can’t you imagine too that game is played in Mobile Alabama. This must a date that they all mark down on their calendar mostly because that whole state blows. I’ve been combing through all of the major sites after watching all three days of practice too. Here are some fun guys that they are jobing and they guy the sites are trying so hard to make into a real NFL player.
TE O.J. Howard
It was quite funny how bad Mike Mayock and Andrew Siciliano just were tripping over themselves day 1 about how good this guy was practicing. So much that this guy might get a first round grade but he is a TE. Giants really blow so they might be in the mix for him. They need to fill that void from Jeremy Shockey forever ago. Howard is just saying all over the media how Alabama just didn’t use him ever. After practice you can come to I think two conclusions A. He was a bad teammate 2. He didn’t really know the playbook and Nick knew it. But the most likely reason is too many studs on one team and they couldn’t spread it around because their QB’s STINK. He only averaged 25 yds a game.

LB Haason Reddick
I love me some defense. This guy is getting so much love right now they are saying the Broncos might take him in the First. He had a pretty incredible senior year. Haason racked up 22.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks this year, not too bad for a senior. This is all after this guy walked on to Temple as a defensive back. That doesn’t even make sense.
He also has a little bit of edge to him having been arrested in 2015 for a litany of charges from beating the crap out of a bunch of dudes at once. aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. I already like this guy.
Jake Elliott Kicker
Really I just wanted to highlight a kicker for fun and to make a little fun of him. Really I think most people that are a little athletic and can halfway kick a ball can do this with practice. If you can take the constant getting made fun of for your LIFE you too can be a kicker. Case in point this guy. Jake literally got pulled off some tennis courts his Junior year of high school and now is one of the best kickers in college. I can just picture this kick tying that white sweater around his neck after practice wearing boat shoes.
Here is a 7 Minute video about him that no one is interested in.
Your obligatory small school guy that made some noise DL Larry Ogunjobi
We will see how far up the draft board this guy gets pushed up. This guy has workout warrior smeared all over him. Love these guys here is the reason for going to UC Charlotte
“It was a combination of things,” he said. “First of all, I prayed about it; my faith is real strong. God let me feel like it was the right choice for me. As far as making my decision, it was an opportunity to be the first. To come into a program and lay the foundation; to be the example rather than having to look up to one. I just took the opportunity in stride and really tried to make the most of it.”
He is a big faith guy too. This screams to me that no one else really wanted him. He is a big dude too with ok numbers for his career. 217 tackles, 49 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, and 33 quarterback hurries. Here are some highlights. Actually it’s pretty hard to find true highlights but he’s on the field.
Game is today at 1pm
