Whilst one team from the NFC West is firmly focusing it's attentions on the Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks will be concentrating on this week's Senior Bowl. Work outs began today in preparation for Saturday's game between the senior college all stars.
Todd McShay from ESPN takes a look at the story lines surrounding some of the prospects working out this week. Included in his discussion, the importance of a good week for Baylor's Jason Smith - someone we've discussed a lot this week.
Amongst the interesting happenings so far, defensive tackle BJ Raji from Boston College measured in at 6'2" and 334 lbs. He was previously only listed at 6'1" and 323 lbs. Reports have said that Raji "had his way" with offensive linemen in Monday's practise. Last year Sedrick Ellis put in an eye catching display at the Senior Bowl to propel his stock, could the same happen to Raji?
Herman Johnson, arguably the highest ranked interior linemen alongside Duke Robinson, weighed in at 382 lbs and 6'7" in height. That's positively huge and it'll be interesting to see if this leads to a change in position in the pro's.
