Among some of the newcomers today at one of the last practices for the Senior Bowl was former Clemson wide receiver Airese Currie, who replaced Roddy White on the South roster. Currie looked a little slim on the field but displayed his trademark quickness and athleticism.
The former Tiger flew into Mobile early Thursday morning and was on no sleep. He arrived at 10:30 AM and was thrown right into the fire on Thursday afternoon, running routes against the defensive backs and trying to be noticed.
"It wasn't too bad," Currie explained after practice. "Getting used to the terminology and getting accustomed to hearing it – it wasn't too bad. I picked up on the pace pretty well."
He admitted he was "tired, worn out" from the late flight in but he was not ready to trade the exposure for anything. Currie had set one of his goals to make the Senior Bowl roster and not be on standby as an injury replacement.
"I really wanted to be here," Currie said. "I wanted to show the scouts what I could do because we didn't get a chance to play in a Bowl game (at Clemson). It was an obligation for me to get out here and compete one last time before I moved on."
Currie will be in the lineup on Saturday, another day to prove his worth to the NFL scouts. They may not be in attendance, but they will surely watch the game tape when some of the best in the ranks of college football play each other.
