Senior Bowl 2012: Roster, Weigh-in Results and TV Schedule
Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

The 2012 Senior Bowl is just days away, and it features several talented players hoping to soon be drafted into the NFL. 

This is the last chance that scouts will get to see these athletes showcase their skills in an actual game.

Pre-draft workouts are great, but seeing how a prospect does in a game gives the scouts much more information. 

With that said, let's get to some specifics about the 2012 Senior Bowl and those who are playing in it. 

 

When: Saturday, Jan. 28 at 3 p.m. CST 

Where: Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Mobile, AL  

Watch: NFL Network 

 

Roster 

The entire roster for the North and South team can be seen here. The South team is definitely loaded with more top-notch talent than the North. 

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier will be the head coach for the North team, and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan will be the head coach for the South team.

Over 100 NFL prospects are trying to prove they have what it takes to play at the next level, but a poor showing will have a major impact on their draft status.

According to Cincinnati.com, there has been a late addition to North Team. Cincinnati Bearcat defensive tackle Derek Wolfe will be playing in the 2012 Senior Bowl. Wolfe was the Big East’s co-defensive player of the year.

North Team Top Prospects 

 

Kirk Cousins, QB 

The Michigan State Spartans quarterback had a good senior season, finishing it off with a come-from-behind overtime bowl victory against Georgia. 

Projected as a mid-round QB, Cousins needs to shine while on the field, especially since the QB class is wide open after Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. 

 

Kellen Moore, QB 

He may be the winningest QB in college football, but Moore doesn't translate to the NFL very well. As Bleacher Report's Michael Schottey points out, his size is his biggest problem.  

What's more, the fact that he played against weaker talent tarnishes all his numbers. Moore has to show up big in the Senior Bowl to truly wow the scouts and significantly raise his draft stock. 

 

Russell Wilson, QB 

After a solid season with the Wisconsin Badgers, Wilson decided to skip baseball and focus on the NFL. Bad news hit Wilson early on, though, as Adam Hoge points out the QB's weigh-in results. 

That's never a good sign for a QB, but Wilson can still make up for it by having a good game. Still, the height issue will really hurt him. 

Known more for his mobility, Wilson has to put the arm on display this weekend if he wants to increase his chances of being drafted in one of the earlier rounds.

 

Chris Polk, RB 

The former Washington running back is being selected in the first round in several mock drafts, but there's no guarantee he will actually be drafted then. 

Polk will need to show up well against some stout defenders if he wants to inch closer to a guaranteed first-round draft grade. 

 

Mike Adams, OT 

Known for his role in the tattoo scandal at Ohio State, Adams is projected as first-round draft pick.

The class of 2012 is loaded with skilled offensive lineman, and Adams has a chance to become a top 20 pick or better by performing really well at the Senior Bowl. 

Wes Bunting of National Football Post tweeted the results of Adams' weigh-in, and it will definitely help his draft status:

 

Alfonzo Dennard, CB 

NFL draft analyst Dion Caputi tweeted the weigh-in results for Dennard, and it's around what he was originally listed as:

Cornerback is another deep position in the draft, which means Dennard has to have a good game. Should he get burned, it could cost him the chances of being a first-round draft pick. 

What's more, the last time we saw Dennard in a game, he was ejected for throwing a punch. Scouts will be watching to see if Dennard is able to keep his cool both on and off the field. 

Which QB Needs to Have a Better Performance in the Senior Bowl?

South Team Top Prospects  

 

Nick Foles, QB 

Foles dealt with injuries in his college career, so this is a good chance for him to show he can move well, take hits and thrive in a game. 

Bleacher Report's Michael Schottey is at the Senior Bowl, and he tweeted an update on Foles during the weigh-in:

That's not good for Foles, especially considering he's 6'5", 244 pounds. He'll need to show off the arm a lot in the Senior Bowl. 

 

Brandon Weeden, QB 

The age is perhaps the biggest concern about Weeden, but he can make people quickly forget that by playing well this weekend.

Scouts will be watching to see how he does without Justin Blackmon, but luckily for Weeden, he does have a great group of receivers such as Juron Criner, Jeff Fuller and Dwight Jones. 

Schottey gives his opinion on Weeden's weigh-in:

 

Quinton Coples, DE 

Bunting tweeted the weigh-in results for Coples, and it's around what people expected:

Coples didn't have quite the season he expected, which is why he needs to get a sack in this game.

He's projected for the first round, but making some big plays in the Senior Bowl will do wonders for his draft stock. 

 

Courtney Upshaw, LB 

Chase Goodbread covers Alabama for The Tuscaloosa News, and he tweeted the results for Upshaw's weigh-in:

That's not as tall as some thought, but it's almost 10 pounds stronger than what he was listed at.

Upshaw's performance in the BCS title game was enough to solidify his first-round status, but he could see himself drop the later part of round one should he falter and make bad plays on Saturday. 

 

Melvin Ingram, DE 

Joe Person covers the Carolina Panthers for the Charlotte Observer, and he tweeted what Ingram checked in at. 

This is good for Ingram, who is also projected as a first-round pick. If he can outperform Coples, Upshaw and others, it will have a tremendous impact on his draft stock. 

 

Zach Brown, LB 

Another player projected as a possible first-round pick, Brown will need an impressive showing to make sure he is still viewed as a first-round guy. 

Schottey tweeted his feelings on Brown, as well as his weigh-in results:

That's a good size for Brown, as it is over his listed weight. He'll continue to get stronger once he moves on to the NFL.
