Senior Bowl: Players to watch

By Phinsider
Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama – Despite being only a two year starter, McElroy has some impressive stats. What stands out? His 39 to 10 touchdown to interception ratio and his 66.3% career completion percentage (over 70% in 2010). Despite his accuracy and his high football IQ, the kid has some red flags. His lack of good arm strength and his lack of ideal height (he’s a shade under 6’2) will cause teams to really be cautious when evaluating McElroy. But something we need to keep in mind is Daboll’s connection to Nick Saban, McElroy’s coach at Alabama. The Dolphins will surly know everything they can possibly want to know thanks to Daboll’s relationship with Saban. [More]

Tide Looking At Beamer

By John Pennington,

Saban is searching for a replacement for departed receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Curt Cignetti who took the head coaching job at Indiana University of Pennsylvania last week. Yesterday, reports surfaced connecting Kentucky receivers coach — and Alabama native — Tee Martin to the Tide’s job. Former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster has also been named as a candidate. Now rumors are increasing that South Carolina’s Shane Beamer is a candidate as well. Beamer worked with the Gamecocks’ special teams and strong safeties last year. Two weeks ago, Steve Spurrier took the safeties duties off his plate so he could focus on the specialty units. He is also Carolina’s recruiting coordinator. [More]
