5 Senior Bowl Players Redskins should watch

The Senior Bowl is a perfect complement to the NFL Scouting Combine. While the day’s biggest stars are in the latter, the Washington Redskins can see many second-to-fifth rounders in Saturday’s all-star game.

Here are 5 players the Redskins should be watching.

Tim Tebow (Florida) – Can Tebow take a snap under center? He never did at Florida where he was a great college quarterback. The pros require him to move up to the line, though. It’s a very different game there, especially in the faster NFL. The Redskins might get Tebow with the 36th overall pick. He’s definitely worth a look.

Brandon Ghee (Wake Forest) – Once again, the Redskins are shopping for a cornerback, especially if they decide not to keep Carlos Rogers. Ghee has a 6-foot vertical jump and a sure tackler.

"Kyle Wilson (Boise State) – The cornerback is a ballhawk who not only gets a hand on the ball, but actually holds on to it (cough, cough Rogers). Needs more discipline in his coverage, but has excellent instincts."

Rogers, Tryon, Smoot, basically our entire defensive backfield.

will never go on warpathconfidential.com ever again.

tebow? GTFO

Hes worth taking a look at. Just because they watch him doesn't mean they will draft him.

Would love, love, LOVE to get Iupati.

A lot of people think he's an easy Pro Bowler in the making. Just a nasty run blocker.

I would love to get him too but he will be a late first round pick.

Ya I've also read somewhere where capers is confussing to scout because in drills he does really well but during plays he's a different person..

Ducasee from umass didn't have a good practice today but I would still like to get him in the 4th if he's there. He's strong, athletic and can deffinitly play rt. No biased aside because he's from connecticut and my co-workers girl knows his cousin lol but get it done mike s. This kid is hungry and athletic!

Cough...Jacoby Ford.... Cough

I know I am partial :D But a lot of people focus on just Spiller and forget Ford is faster!

The NFL has been buzzing this season over the speed of one Chris Johnson.

Clemson senior Jacoby Ford will likely supplant Johnson as the fastest man in the NFL next year.

Ford has guaranteed a 4.2-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine and ran a 4.126 in high school.

No, that's not a typo—it's just ridiculous speed.

Clemson's standout receiver had the opportunity to compete at the Beijing Summer Olympics but turned down the chance in favor of football. Last March, Ford won the national championship in the 60-meter dash and was a mere one-hundredth of a second shy of the NCAA record in that event.

It's nearly impossible to question Jacoby Ford's speed, and NFL scouts generally don't. However, speed doesn't automatically convert to ability on the football field. That's the very reason that Ford's participation in this Saturday's Senior Bowl is so important.

The speedster needs to prove that he can run high-quality routes, a hole in Ford's skill set that NFL scouts often point to as his single greatest weakness. Although Ford has excellent hands and above average blocking skills, he needs to perform well in the Senior Bowl to prove that he can be more than just a blur down the field.

If Jacoby can successfully do that this Saturday, he may just sneak into the first round of the NFL draft and join teammate C.J. Spiller. With a good impression on scouts at the Senior Bowl, in addition to a record 40 at the combine, Ford will be getting some serious late first round consideration.

Who wouldn't want a guy faster than Chris Johnson on their team?

In 2008, he saw action in all 13 games. He recorded 55 receptions for 710 yards and four touchdowns, 18 rushing attempts for 96 yards, 21 punt returns for 62 yards, and 17 kick returns for 313 yards.[4] In February 2009, at the Virginia Tech Elite Meet, Ford ran a 6.52-second 60-meter dash, which was one-hundredth of a second shy of an NCAA record.[8] In March, he won the 60-meter dash at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.[9] During the track season, he was again named an NCAA All-American, All-East Region, and All-ACC athlete.[6]

Prior to the 2009 season, the NFL Draft Scout ranked Ford as the seventh out of 310 available wide receiver prospects for the 2010 NFL Draft.[10]

In the Tiger's 40-24 victory over the Florida Seminoles on November 7th, 2009, Ford and C.J. Spiller became the greatest all-purpose duo in NCAA history (a record previously topped by Marshall Faulk and Darnay Scott of San Diego State).

1/17 Update: Ford continued to be Clemson's big play receiver and ended his senior season averaging nearly 14 yards per catch. The quarterback play got more consistent as the season progressed and that helped Ford put up better numbers and led to a team high six receiving touchdowns. Ford even did a good job returning kicks when the opposition was too afraid to kick or punt anywhere near C.J. Spiller. Ford is probably a third round pick right now, but that could change when he blows away scouts with his 40 time.

You just like him because his name is Jacoby, Huly! :D

Nope I am a Clemson Girl ;)

He is small but his speed is amazing and with a lot of the focus on my boy CJ Spiller a lot of people over look him but he is just as much of a threat as Spiller.

The Skins need to look at Joique Bell RB, Wayne State. He's projected 4th round, so if he's still there that would be a steal. Seen him play in High School, kid was beast and he killed it at Wayne State (40TD's in 20 games). He doesn't have amazing speed, but he's built and tough like a true NFL RB.

Hope we can pick him up, if he impresses at the senior bowl and combine he's stock could rise to early second round, so 4th round would be a true gift.

Here's a nice highlight video

a 6 foot vert? really? I think they just lost all credibility there.
