Senior Bowl Money Makers

The legion of experts gave you daily updates of which players were up and down all week long. Now that the practices are complete, we're going to give our final assessment of which players made themselves some money this week, and those who still have some work to do.

Here are your money makers:

$$$$- Kendrick Burney, DB, North Carolina- Burney was good in the beginning of the week, and he improved each day capping his week of practice with a pair of interceptions and a multiple passes defended on Thursday, wowing the remaining scouts in attendance. He may have worked his way into the bottom part of the first round.

$$$- Cameron Jordan, DE, California- Jordan was already considered a late first-round prospect, but his stellar showing at the Senior Bowl practices may have vaulted him all the way into the Top 10. His dominant play this week was reminiscent of B.J. Raji's two years ago.

$$- Leonard Hankerson, WR Miami- The former Miami Hurricane was clearly the best receiver that the South team had to offer, thanks to his flawless route running and strong hands. A lack of top end speed will likely keep him out of the first round, but you could see him go early in the second day.

$$- Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego State- Brown was far from a household name when this week began, but left practices as the North team's finest receiver. Brown runs great routes and is a very natural hands catcher. Brown's measurables will keep him from being drafted on the first day.

Time for the guys whose value diminished this week:

$$$ D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas- Williams didn't have a terrible week, but he struggled in blocking drills and was clearly out-shined by Tennessee tight end Luke Stockar.

$$$ Nate Solder, OT, Colorado- Solder entered this week vying for the top position at offensive tackle in this year's draft and struggled mightily as the week progressed. Solder is clearly behind both Anthony Castonzo and Gabe Carimi.

$$Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College- Although Herzlich's story about beating cancer is courageous, his play on the field was mediocre at best. Herzlich struggled getting off blocks and in coverage, and will likely fall to the third day of the draft.

$$ Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia- Devine's week went bad to worse as he weighed in at just 160 lbs. and looks more like a running back from the Tiny Football League than the National Football league. Devine struggled in almost every aspect of the game this week.
