and Senior Bowl: Two South standouts
Tennessee TE Mychal Rivera (6-3¼, 237) continues to impress. Rivera showed great burst after the catch, and although he had a drop he also made an unbelievable one-handed catch way outside his frame.
Another player who flashed skills was Tennessee TE Mychal Rivera. It was a great day for him to shine, and he took advantage. He's the tight end with the most suddenness at the Senior Bowl. He also made a nice adjustment on a pass thrown behind him during team drills. Rivera's slight frame will likely be more of an issue when the pads go on tomorrow.
Also, from the Senior Bowl practice reports, The Tennessean
reports that Dallas Thomas is out of action at the Senior Bowl due to an undisclosed injury.
Out of action: Tennessee's Dallas Thomas is considered one of the better offensive line prospects in the draft, likely to be picked in the first two rounds.
One of his strengths is versatility, as he played both tackle and guard for the Volunteers.
But Thomas won't get a chance to showcase his skills in the Senior Bowl. He did not practice for the South on Tuesday, and a spokesperson said Thomas would miss the game on Saturday because of an injury. He did not disclose the injury.
