We will bring you updates of non-AQ players at the Senior Bowl all week, thanks to the Scouts Inc. crew of Todd McShay, Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.
After Day 1, several players stood out. You need an Insider subscription to read all their thoughts on the Senior Bowl blog, but I can give you a few snippets. The one player who seemed to catch their attention was Boise State receiver Titus Young. Here is what they had to say about him:
Boise State's Titus Young was great in and out of his breaks. He can drop his weight without having to gear down and is a savvy route runner. In fact, he's a confident route runner -- he knows what he's doing. He was very streaky catching the ball today, but we are going to keep a close eye on him on how he handles adversity and how he carries himself. There are times when he looks like he's the most confident player on the field and has a swagger, but then the second he dropped one pass, it seemed like he went into a shell.
They also had an early evaluation of Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick:
He showed adequate arm strength and really good touch on throws that required touch. He just throws a nice catchable ball. But the biggest thing watching him live, he's trying to hide the fact he has a long delivery. It's like he has a hitch in his throwing motion and it takes too long and it's something that defenders can really pick up on.
At least one other outlet was also impressed with Kaepernick.
