James Draws Attention From NFL's Gil Brandt

According to NFL Media senior analyst and longtime Cowboys executive Gil Brandt, Tennessee's Ja'Wuan James is one of five 'under-the radar' prospects to watch at the Senior Bowl. 

Here's what he wrote about James: 

Most of the attention on the Vols' offensive line went to massive LT Antonio Richardson, but Tennessee has another good NFL prospect on the other side of the line. At 6-6 1/8 and 315 pounds, James will be hard to miss at the Senior Bowl. He holds the school record for most starts by an offensive lineman (49, all at right tackle), including 13 games as a true freshman. He reminds me of Titans RT David Stewart when Stewart came out of Mississippi State in 2005; has similar traits. He's strong but doesn't have great feet (would have difficult time at LT). He's mean and tough. Did good job on Jadeveon Clowney when the South Carolina defensive end lined up on James' side. Good run-blocker. Could find his way into the third round with a good showing this week.

James also drew the attention of Atlanta Journal Constitution Falcons beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter, who tweeted:
