Day 1 Senior Bowl notes

Kevin Weidl of Scouts Inc. is at Senior Bowl practices, scouting it out as the nation's best seniors prepare for their final audition for the NFL. There are plenty of ACC representatives on the Senior Bowl rosters, and some of them have already made an impression. According to Weidl's latest practice report from Mobile, Ala., a pair of former UNC players stood out.

Weidl wrote that Sylvester Williams was the best player from Day 1:

"Of anyone on the field, the guy who had the best practice was North Carolina's Sylvester Williams. He has strong, powerful hands and had a tackle for a loss in nine-on-seven. His combination of quickness and power -- with his hands and his feet -- is really disruptive."

At linebacker, Weidl wrote that UNC's Kevin Reddick had a good day:

"Reddick is an enforcer in the run game, good in tight quarters and can blitz."

Regarding the quarterbacks, Weidl wrote that NC State's Mike Glennon "is the easiest thrower of the football."

On Glennon: He has a big stature, strong arm. The ball comes out easy for him. He had a little trouble with his accuracy. He was a little high on both of his throws in the seam route, one of which was intercepted in team period. And he still holds the ball too long.

Here's a look at the ACC representatives on updated versions of the Senior Bowl rosters, with their current heights and weights:


  • Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (6-6, 220)

  • Kevin Reddick, LB, North Carolina (6-1, 246)

  • Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina (6-2, 313)
