MOBILE, Ala. -- The running backs on the South squad shined during the team's practice at the Senior Bowl Tuesday afternoon. Memphis RB DeAngelo Williams was the brightest star in the group. He looked very good. Williams showed great cutback ability, great vision and a terrific burst. He exploded through the defense on three successive runs during the afternoon practice. LSU RB Joseph Addai caught the ball well and showed some quickness. He's a versatile player and has a chance to have a nice week.

RB Jerious Norwood from Mississippi State displayed some natural running instincts and caught the ball.

South Florida RB Andre Hall showed he can pass block, which is important at the NFL level. Hall also displayed some running skills.
