UTSA DE Marcus Davenport (6-foot-6, 259 pounds) has already shown flashes of his power at the Senior Bowl workouts, both during individual drills and one-on-one pass rush. Davenport's technique is still raw on film, but he has natural strength at the point of attack and he comes off the ball with speed.

Ex-Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said he does not know exactly what to think of Lane Kiffin, the brash, 42-year-old coach at FAU: "It's very interesting," Bowden said tonight at the Outland Banquet in Omaha, where he was presented with the Tom Osborne Legacy Award. "Maybe Lane is over the hump. Maybe he's grown up." Kiffin, former head coach of the Oakland Raiders and at Tennessee, led the Owls to an 11-3 record last fall in his first season. "He's got a great personality," the 88-year-old Bowden said. "He knows how to get attention. He mixes good with people, and he might be a great one. I don't know."
