Senior Bowl Practice: Day 2

1242012_CWR_1246.JPGSome observations and links from Tuesday morning's North team practice at the 2012 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.:

QB Russell Wilson was again largely discussed on the NFL Network coverage. Badger head coach Bret Bielema called in to talk about his quarterback with Paul Burmeister and Mike Mayock (VIDEO).

The beat writer for the Houston Texans (Badgers south?) from the Houston Chronicle weighed in with his thoughts on Wilson ("Wilson has a nice, over-the-top delivery and keeps high during his backpedal") and Kevin Zeitler ("I was very excited to see Kevin Zeitler because he's such a powerful and technically sound run blocker and he didn't disappoint in the scrimmage phase").

Pro Football Weekly also briefly touched on Wilson ("Wilson was very impressive. He was accurate, consistent and had the best zip on his ball of the three quarterbacks"). They also checked in later on video breaking down Wilson's day.

Zeitler, who moved over and played a little center during practice, impressed Tom Melton ("As I said in my preview of the Senior Bowl I think that Kevin Zeitler is the top senior offensive guard and I still believe that").

Tony Softli, who covers the Rams, also had good things to say about Zeitler ("Tough and aggressive lineman. Is not the best athlete of the bunch, but he has that over-achiever attitude with skill set to develop at the next level. I like this young man.") and Wilson ("When it's all said and done, this quarterback might be the best at the 2012 Senior Bowl. Play-maker!").

Punter Brad Nortman also has been turning some heads. After Monday's practice, SI.com's Tony Pauline said, "Brad Nortman (P/Wisconsin) was kicking moon shots all afternoon. His punts were consistently flying 55-to-60 yards with great hang time."

SB Nation also chimed in following Tuesday's practice, "Wisconsin punter Brad Nortman boomed his kicks and routinely got quite a bit of hang time, garnering him some attention from a few scouts after practice."

Practice continues today, televised live at 10 a.m. CT on NFL Network.
