Bama Juniors Get Attention From NFL
Alabama will host Ole Miss at 2:30 p.m. CDT Saturday in a game that will be nationally televised by CBS. Scouts will be looking at 11 Crimson Tide players and 10 Rebels, according to information from Scout.com pro football experts.
Seven of the 11 Alabama players being scouted are juniors—some not a surprise, others perhaps surprising.
NFL teams scheduled to have scouts in attendance on Saturday are Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans.
The senior Tide players being scouted are no surprise. They are center Antoine Caldwell, quarterback John Parker Wilson, tight end Nick Walker, and safety Rashad Johnson.
No one will be surprised to learn that junior offensive tackle Andre Smith is being watched by the NFL scouts. Other Alabama juniors on the scout list are nose tackle Terrence Cody, tailback Glen Coffee, cornerback-return specialist Javier Arenas, strongside linebacker Cory Reamer, strong safety Justin Woodall, and placekicker Leigh Tiffin.
Ole Miss players being scouted include five seniors and five juniors. The seniors are left tackle Michael Oher, defensive tackle Peria Jerry, strong safety Jamarca Sanford, wide receiver Mike Wallace, and offensive guard Maurice Miller. The juniors are defensive end Greg Hardy, safety Kendrick Lewis, wide receiver Dexter McCluster, offensive tackle John Jerry, and placekicker Joshua Shene.
