Four LSU Tigers Participating in Senior Bowl


The Senior Bowl which takes place annually in Mobile, Alabama is a great place for collegiate players to impress high profile NFL scouts. The Senior Bowl is televised on the NFL Network and coverage of the daily practices are shown on television during Senior Week. The all-star game will be played on January 30.

During practices, the players have an opportunity to participate in many one on one drills led by NFL coaches. Many players have raised their stock drastically during the week.

LSU has four players attending the Senior Bowl. Offensive tackle Ciron Black, tailback Charles Scott, wide receiver Brandon LaFell and outside linebacker Harry Coleman were all invited and will put their skills on display.

Brandon LaFell, No. 20 on the Big Board, is projected to go in the first round of the draft. A major knock on LaFell’s game is his route-running. There is no question that he posseses the strength and hands needed to be a productive NFL receiver. LaFell is also willing to go over the middle which translates well to the next level. If LaFell can show crisp route-running during the one on one drills, he could challenge Dez Bryant to be the first receiver taken.

Ciron Black is the other top LSU prospect participating in the event. Black is a dominant run-blocker who ranks just outside of the Top 32 on our Big Board. If Black shows improvement during the one on one passing drills, he could hear his name called at the end of round one.
