In one of the biggest post-season events of the NFL Draft process, we’ll be doing our best to keep up with who’s been invited and who’s confirmed to attend the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL. Along with keeping up with who the week of practices and final game will feature, we’ll be on site for all of the events that make up the 2014 Senior Bowl.
Despite a hard-fought first half, the surprise ACC coastal representative Duke didn’t stand a chance against the only undefeated team in the country. The Seminoles defense has allowed under 10 points seven times, this year, and only once did they allow over 17.
The best defense in the country (according to points allowed) expectedly destroyed the far less talented Duke Blue Devils. Lead by Lamarcus Joyner and Timmy Jernigan, this defense has been hard pressed to find an offense to match their talent level. But they’ll meet their match against the Auburn Tigers.
At a neutral site, the Spartans and the behemoth of a program that is Ohio State will battle.
Out-manned, possessing less talent, and underdogs despite a nearly perfect season, the Spartans will put the Buckeye’s immortality to the test.
With Urban Meyer in command, this Ohio State’s team hasn’t lost a game. Scoring 40 points or more in six of their last seven games, this offense, with leader Braxton Miller at the helm, has been wreaking havoc on a mediocre Big Ten schedule this year.
Only one team remains to shut down this Ohio State offense, to prove that the Big Ten isn’t a one team league, and to prove that they belong among the country’s best teams. The Spartans aren’t supposed to contend in this battle, the final roadblock before Ohio State passes through to the BCS title game. But the Spartans boasts arguably the best defensive unit in the country, with the aggressiveness, talent, and toughness to hold strong against the Ohio State offense.
Can the Spartans hold against one of the most powerful programs in the country? In the final game of the regular season, Max Bullough, this defense’s King Leonidas, will lead his unit to put the Buckeyes unblemished record to the test.no comments
As we tracked last year's early entrants, we ended with a total count of 68 prospects who left college with eligibility remaining to enter the NFL Draft. That number was an NFL record, and the trend of early entrants has increased dramatically over the past six years.
Will we see another 60+ prospects declare early? Or will the trend towards exhausing eligibility and maximizing the college level return for NFL hopefuls?
Follow and Bookmark this tracker as track all the confirmed early entrants here until the January 13th Deadline.

As a college sophomore, Ezekiel Ansah decided to join the BYU football team. Three years and just nine college starts later, the Ghana-born defensive lineman impressed enough to be drafted 5th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Still learning as he goes, the elite athlete continues to surpass expectations based on his football experience, leading all rookies in sacks. And playing alongside Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, Ansah has transformed this inconsistent unit into the most talented defensive front in the NFL.
The holidays are nearly upon us, and we're entering the most wonderful time of the NFL season as playoff spots are very much up for grabs. Nearly every game this weekend has playoff implications, and that trend is likely to continue for the next several weeks.
Which match ups are going to ultimately decide who makes the playoffs and who's watching from home in a few weeks?no comments
One of college football’s greatest rivalries, the Iron Bowl has been very one sided the past two seasons. After two tremendously close games in 2009 (Greg McElroy lead a late 4th quarter drive to win 26-21) and 2010 (Cam Newton overcame a 24-0 deficit before mounting a comeback win, 28-27), the Gene Chizik lead Tigers have lost the last two seasons by a combined score of 91-14.
Entering as the 4th ranked team in the country, the Auburn Tigers have made a remarkable program transition under Gus Malzahn in just one year. Now, led by quarterback Nick Marshall and defensive playmaker Robenson Therezie, the Tigers hope to upend the top ranked Crimson Tide in Jordan-Hare Stadium to vault this team into the SEC title game next weekend.
While our staff can't write up all of our notes, we will be providing scouting notes from our staff each week to recap the past weekend. In an effort to keep them organized, we'll have all of our notes collected here every week to review throughout the year.no comments
Leading 24-3 after three quarters, Louisville looked well on its way to its 10th win of the season. Memphis stormed back in the fourth quarter with two touchdowns and stopped the Cardinals offense to get the ball back late before a roughing the punter penalty cost them a final shot at tying the game. A game that was far from action-packed lost some of its luster before kickoff when it was learned Louisville junior safety Calvin Pryor would not play, which we later learned was due to a violation of team rules.no comments
This game was an exciting back and forth game, that featured the Pitt defense playing a strong ‘bend don’t break’ style defense in the 2nd half, while its offense made the big plays to get into the end zone. Both teams feature numerous pro prospects who stood out in the game, particularly Aaron Donald and Tom Savage.
Unfortunately, it also saw multiple prospects leave with injuries (Marquis Spruill and Devin Street). Overall it was a classic, hard fought, low-scoring affair between two teams fighting to get into bowl games.
