Sefo Liufau: The Senior Bowl QB More People Should be Talking About

Written by Nicholas McGee on January 27, 2017

Liufau

There is not much buzz surrounding the six quarterbacks looking to boost their standing among NFL scouts at this weeks’ Senior Bowl.

Of those aiming to impress in Mobile, Cal’s Davis Webb is the one who came into the week with the most hype.

But, while there is a lot to like about Webb, it is another Pac-12 player who is the most intriguing quarterback prospect on show this week.

Colorado’s Sefo Liufau led the Buffaloes to the Pac-12 championship game in 2016, but headed to the Senior Bowl with CBS viewing him as a seventh-round pick.

Reports from Mobile suggest their grade is correct, with RealGM’s Jeff Risdon writing that no player has done less to improve their stock than Liufau.

His apparent poor performance so far in practice is particularly disappointing, as the tape points to a number of reasons why Liufau should be receiving more attention (read more…)

Versatility on offensive line key on Day 1 of Senior Bowl practices

Both the Cleveland Browns (South) and Chicago Bears (North) coaching staffs took a similar approach to the offensive line in the first day of practices for Senior Bowl week down in Mobile, Alabama on Tuesday. As assistant coaches tried to get to know the players they are working with, they wasted no time testing the draft prospects by frequently moving them around to see how they handled different positions up front.

The South squad kicked things off by getting creative with perhaps their best offensive lineman all-around, Western Kentucky’s Forrest Lamp. At the weigh-in Tuesday morning, he measured in at just under 6-foot-4 with only 31 and 1/8-inch arms, so the assumption immediately became that his future was locked in at guard. Browns offensive line coach Bob Wylie pushed back on that assumption, starting Lamp at left tackle to begin the first practice.

Before long though, Lamp rotated inside to (read more…)

Juju Smith-Schuster vs. Press Coverage: Why USC Star Will Make it in NFL

Juju Smith-Schuster vs. Press Coverage: Why USC Star Will Make it in NFL

Juju Smith-Schuster is considered one of the better receivers in the 2017 NFL Draft, but he is not thought of in the same regard as Clemson’s Mike Williams or Western Michigan’s Corey Davis – seen by many as the top two wideouts in the class.

Despite racking up 3,092 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in three seasons at USC, Smith-Schuster is considered at best a late first-round and most likely second-round pick.

The main knock on him is that Smith-Schuster does not have the downfield speed to create true separation.

It is a fair criticism, but there is a trait he does possess that makes Smith-Schuster a good bet to succeed at the pro level, his ability to defeat press coverage.

Many players do not face a lot of press coverage in college, but Smith-Schuster saw plenty of it while with the Trojans and dealt with it consistently well, whether (read more…)
