Senior Bowl tabs three Baylor Bears
By David Ubben
Three Baylor Bears are headed to Mobile, Ala., to showcase their talents for NFL scouts at the Senior Bowl.
Receiver Kendall Wright, running back Terrance Ganaway and center Philip Blake have accepted Senior Bowl invitations.
The game is Jan. 28 in Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The game and all practices will be televised live by NFL Network.
The game, though, is usually secondary to what are highly scrutinized practices that can make or break players' draft stock. Ganaway and Blake have a lot to gain as two of the Big 12's most overlooked talents, and Wright should be an interesting player to watch.
He's projected as around second-round pick, but as an undersized player at his position, he'll have a chance to prove he can compete against future NFL defensive backs and still be productive.
In college, that's the one thing you can't argue with about Wright. He led Baylor in receiving every year, and increased his production every year, leading the Big 12 in receiving this season, despite the league having two Biletnikoff finalists in Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon and Oklahoma's Ryan Broyles.
