The annual Draftnik pilgrimage to Mobile, AL for the Reese’s Senior Bowl is one of the highlights of the NFL draft calendar.  With the list of accepted invites starting to roll in, it’s fun watching the senior prospects finish their college careers on a high note.

One such player is Syracuse WR Amba Etta-Tawo, who went wild against Pitt in what was a wild all-around game.  Syracuse lost 76-61, but it wasn’t without a fight from their senior pass-catcher.  Etta-Tawo caught 13 balls for 178 yards and five touchdowns, a stat line that certainly has the NFL taking notice.

With a big week of Senior Bowl practices, Etta-Tawo could throw his name into late-second day consideration.
