RE: JJ Nelson left off Senior Bowl
Just so everybody is aware, Nelson is projected as a 7th rounder/fa by legitimate draft sites. It isn't like Roddy White wasn't invited. He's a borderline NFL talent right now.

Really not a big deal if JJ isn't in the Senior Bowl. Would love to see him there, but it won't hurt him. Plenty of other opportunities and he'll get looks because teams love explosive return men. As long as he can get on a team he'll have a shot to prove he's a legit WR as well.

RE: JJ Nelson left off Senior Bowl
The Chairman of the Senior Bowl is Angus Cooper II. I think he's a former member of the University of Alabama Board of Trustees. http://blog.al.com/live/2010/04/angus_co...other.html http://www.seniorbowl.com/seniorbowl-masa.php

I'm not sure that there's a fix in though. Senior Bowl folks need to keep the NFL, not Baby Bear, happy.

But the NFL calls almost all of the Senior Bowl's shot. The good ole boys can have only 1 or 2 picks, if they need them for ticket sales. These are usually reserved for Mobile players, who are boarder line NFLers.

It was announced on ABC 33/40 earlier tonight that J.J. Nelson is an ALTERNATE for the Senior Bowl.

So, while they aren't considering him for first-round, they ARE considering him, and he will probably be on the sidelines at least.

The big thing at the Senior Bowl is the players work out for NFL coaches throughout the week.

This! More than likely, many of us would have hit the road to Mobile to see him play here one last time in this state, myself included...But, as usual...#Verboten
