Senior Bowl: Who's helped, who's hurt their stock?

For college seniors the 'Senior Bowl' represents one of their most important opportunities to shine. A good performance can give a shot in the arm to a player's visability prior to the scouting combine, meanwhile a poor performance can sometimes foreshadow a player's free fall in the NFL draft. 

Thus far there have been two senior bowl practices, so this topic serves to give a brief primer on who is really helping their stock and who are falling behind projections. As it stands many of the top players in the draft aren't Seniors, but many of those 3rd round prospects and into the mid rounds are represented. So, let's see how the prospects are doing...

After the jump

 

Players who have improved their stock: 

Offense

Titus Young, WR- Boise State

Leonard Hankerson, WR- Miami

Nate Solder, OT- Colorado

Danny Watkins, G- Baylor

Colin Kapernick, QB- Nevada

 

Defense

Quinton Carter, FS- Oklahoma

Kendric Burney, CB- North Carolina

Jarvis Jenkins, DT- Clemson

Phil Taylor, NT- Baylor

Cameron Jordan, DE- California

 

Players who have hurt their stock: 

Offense

Jake Locker, QB- Washington

Stephen Schilling, G- Michigan

Demarcus Love, G- Arkansas

Kris O'Dowd, C- USC

 

Defense

Ryan Kerrigan, DE- Purdue

Mark Herzlich, OLB- Boston College

Jeremy Beal, OLB- Oklahoma

 

As it stands it appears impressive the most are WR Titus Young and NT Phil Taylor. Some scouts now thing Young could be a 2nd round prospect, meanwhile Taylor is trying to cement himself as the #1 NT in the draft. Colin Kapernick is getting a lot of press, as the QBs tend to and I think he'll be a great value pick for a team with an established starter and the 2-3 years needed for Kapernick to overhaul his throwing motion.
