Senior Bowl week helped some players' draft stock and hurt that of others. Scouts Inc. goes position by position and ranks the offensive players who were in Mobile, Ala.

Pike appears to be the best all-around prospect from this year's below-average Senior Bowl crop. He needs to add bulk to his lanky frame and is working on getting the ball out more quickly, but he has excellent size potential, shows good poise in the pocket and can be deadly accurate when in rhythm.

Based solely on his potential to develop into a traditional starting quarterback, Tebow would rank fifth or sixth on this list, but the possibility of him contributing in other facets of the game -- Wildcat packages, as a short-yardage quarterback, with a move to H-back -- is the reason he's hanging on to a third-round grade.

Brown is arguably the most naturally gifted of the group but also is the most raw. LeFevour is a playmaker with quick feet and very good instincts, but his passing mechanics need polishing. Canfield's inconsistency in Mobile was disappointing, but he still has mid- to late-round developmental value. Finally, Robinson exceeded expectations during the week, showing enough tools to warrant late-round consideration in a West Coast system.


Which big names made the most of their week at the Senior Bowl and which still have much to prove? Todd McShay has all the answers, but only for ESPN Insiders.
