Senior Bowl - game day

The Senior Bowl kicks off tonight at 6 p.m. central time. It'll be interesting to see who impresses after a lot of talk in the week about who has helped or hindered their draft stock. Here are some links to get you in the mood for the game.

Shawn Zobel is doing a live blog. He'll be offering a play-by-play analysis for those who can't watch the game and will be answering questions throughout.

Chris Sullivan at Seahawk Addicts lists the players he'll be keeping an eye on. He's particularly interested in Michael Oher (OT, Ole Miss) and B.J. Raji (DT, Boston College).

Ed Thompson and Chris Steuber continue their analysis of the Senior Bowl work outs.

B.J. Raji talks to the NFL Network.

Eric Williams from the Tacoma News Tribune wonders if the Seahawks will consider drafting Ohio State corner back Malcolm Jenkins.

Question of the day: Where the heck is B.J. Raji? Thanks for the link, by the way.

Oher looked great early on, but there were was one play he got beat on and another where he just seemed to quit too early. The holding penalty negating the 4th and 1 was inexcusable. Here's hoping he keeps stinking up the joint and slips to us in the 2nd :)

That's the negative I've seen with Oher - dominant a lot of the time but capable of switching off. If he was more consistent he'd probably be going first overall, as it is he's just too inconsistent to trust.

I'm not suprised Raji isn't as dominant in the game as he was in work outs. Lets be honest, not many people were talking about him as a top 10 pick before this week. There's been a bit of hysteria surrounding him, I think it'll die down tonight. I've been more impressed with Peria Jerry.
