Big stage for SEC tackle threesome
By Chris Low
ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has listed his top storylines for the Senior Bowl, and one of the areas he'll be watching closely is offensive tackle.
Three former SEC stars -- Mississippi State's Derek Sherrod, Auburn's Lee Ziemba and Arkansas' DeMarcus Love -- stand to have a lot to gain this week in Mobile, Ala.
All three were considered borderline first-round draft picks at one point during the season or prior to the season, but McShay lists them as Day 2 prospects going into the Senior Bowl. A strong week of practice could push them back into first-round consideration, but there's a chance they could fall, too, if they don't perform well this week. They all played left tackle in college, but McShay thinks they will be right tackles in the NFL.
