Senior Bowl Risers And Sliders

The South squad took to the field for their second practice in Mobile on Tuesday afternoon. Several defensive linemen showed off their physical skills. It was also another tough day for quarterback Colt Brennan.

Red Bryant/DT/Texas A&M: Bryant was near dominant all afternoon, collapsing the pocket and driving blockers off the line. His main opponent during practice, center Kory Lichtensteiger of Bowling Green, was so frustrated he resorted to fisticuffs at one point.

Dre Moore/DT/Maryland: He displayed great explosion off the snap and was unblockable for most of the day. Moore also went hard for most of practice, something he's not known for.

Andre Fluellen/DT/Florida State: Fluellen is being compared to Darnell Dockett, another former Seminole , and today he showed why. He is another lightning quick defensive tackle who beat blockers with a great first step.

Harry Douglas/WR/Louisville: Douglas displayed outstanding speed and reliable hands. He tipped the scale at just 170 pounds Monday morning yet beat out several bigger defensive backs to make a number of tough receptions.

Robert Felton/G/Arkansas: Felton was stout at the point of attack and was one of the few blockers from the South who was able to slow down the assault of the defensive tackles.

Tashard Choice/RB/Georgia Tech: Choice was productive carrying the ball and catching it. He left a number of defenders grasping at air after making them miss tackles in the open field.

Donnie Avery/WR/Houston: Avery is the fastest player in Mobile and he showed why on a number of occasions. He possesses a second gear and consistently had defensive backs playing catch-up in drills.

Matt Forte/RB/Tulane: Forte is drawing comparisons to Dorsey Levens after the first two practices. He's displayed power, vision and surprising foot quickness carrying the ball.

Colt Brennan/QB/Hawaii: Brennan's inadequate arm strength is obvious to all in attendance. His passes lack any velocity which gives the defensive backs extra time to break up his throws, something that's been a common occurrence.

Andre Woodson/QB/Kentucky: Woodson has been all over the place with his throws and has shown poor accuracy. His receivers are consistently slowing up in routes, reaching back or leaving their feet in order to try and catch the ball.

Mike McGlynn/G/Pittsburgh: McGlynn was beaten like a drum by a number of defensive linemen. He does not possess the athleticism necessary to stop the quicker tackles.

• One of the benefits of the Senior Bowl is it allows NFL coaching staffs to try players at different positions, some which they rarely played. The San Francisco 49ers">49ers staff has taken advantage of this with the South squad. Mike McGlynn of Pittsburgh, a tackle in college, has been used almost exclusively at guard. Georgia Tech's Darrell Robertson, an undersized defensive end, was stood up over tackle as a rush linebacker. And cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie of Tennessee State was placed at safety for most of practice. Scouts and coaches from different teams around the league appreciate this as it gives them a jump start on the potential upside or limitations of several prospects.

• Miami Hurricane linebacker Tavares Gooden was sent home after his medical exam on Monday revealed a hip injury.
