Senior Bowl 2013: Who Must Recover from a Rough Outing
The college football season is over, and many potential NFL draft picks headed to Mobile, Alabama to try and improve their draft stock in the Senior Bowl.
This game was the chance for many to either cement their status as a legitimate first-round pick, or try to justify why they should even be drafted at all.
Unfortunately, some players did not perform as well as they might have hoped, and now have ground to make up if they want to recover from a rough outing in the Senior Bowl.

Coming into the Senior Bowl, scouts predicted that Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson could possibly go as high as the third or fourth round.
However, he struggled to transition to wide receiver and did not run his routes very well.
Scouts are now saying that his stock may have plummeted to the sixth or seventh round.
Although he had a rough Senior Bowl, Robinson does have the potential and talent to make an impact at the next level.

Although there is a lot of interest around Nassib, his stock took a hit because of his sub-par performance in the Senior Bowl.
He completed only 4 of 10 passing attempts, threw an interception, and lost a fumble.
Nassib’s draft stock was already unsure, but he will now have a lot of ground to make up if he wants to recover from this disaster.
Since this year’s quaterback class is weak, and Nassib is still an unknown commodity, he will still have the chance to be a high pick.

Landry Jones would have been better off if he decided to leave Oklahoma after last year. Once considered a first-round lock, Jones’ draft stock has plummeted faster than M.C. Hammer’s net worth.
Although Jones has never fared well in the biggest moments, his performance in the Senior Bowl was shockingly bad. He completed only 3 of 10 passes for 16 yards.
Although he has struggled, he has an enormous amount of talent and a team will definitely give him a shot.

Some of quarterback Mike Glennon’s biggest knocks during his time at NC State were that he wasn’t productive or polished. He did little to disprove that in his mediocre effort.
He completed 8 of 16 passes and threw an interception.
Unlike other quarterbacks, he did have a few bright spots throughout the day and flashed his potential.
Although Glennon’s outing was far from great, he’s helped by the fact that his performance was not as bad as some of the other quarterbacks.
