Senior Bowl Day Three

Last Full Day of Practice Offers Up More Opportunity

The last day of Senior Bowl practice brought slightly warmer weather, and more full scrimmage action. The positional groups had their individual workouts, but the majority of the time was spent with full team 11 on 11. The game is kicking off on Saturday, with no practices held tomorrow. Friday the teams have a private walk through, and will spend the morning visiting area hospitals and schools.  The Senior Bowl has a long history of being part of the community, and the players enjoy this day as much as the people they interact with.

Dadi Nicolas, from Virginia Tech, had a strong day .He was getting buzz for his great combination of speed and size.

There were rumors floating around Mobile that Denver was keeping a keen eye on Nicolas, and Dadi showed out on the final day of practice.  Dadi split time again with the defensive line and nickel package groups.  During the 7 on 7's, Nicolas showed great speed covering backs and ends.  When rushing the passer, he forced an errant throw from Jacoby Brissett.  He also almost tipped a pass at the line forcing an another incomplete pass.  Dadi knows how important this week is for the scouts, and brought extra enthusiasm to the field today.

Next up for Nicolas is the combine in Indianapolis where he looks to improve his draft position.  After watching Nicolas compete with some of the best linemen in the country, it is safe to say he will have an opportunity in the N.F.L..
