Senior Bowl week winding down

As the teams make their final preparations for the Saturday's Senior Bowl, the Badgers who are participating in the game are still turning heads. However, inclement weather forced the North squad to "practice" inside a ballroom in the Mobile Convention Center.

Russell Wilson and the other North Team QBs have impressed the Minnesota Vikings coach staff they have been working with all week (Minneapolis Star-Tribune).

Pro Football Weekly's two reporters both couldn't help but notice Wilson during Wednesday's practice ("I wasn't watching the North quarterbacks closely this morning, but Wisconsin's Russell Wilson nonetheless caught my eye").

NFL.com's Simon Samano says "Wilson isn't short on confidence."

Pro Football Weekly also broke down Kevin Zeitler's draft prospects (2nd round - "A very smart, steady, blue-collar man blocker capable of eliminating defenders when he gets his hands on them").

NFLMocks.com has Zeitler among its top 10 prospects at the Senior Bowl, calling him, "Another massive offensive lineman who is primed to play guard in the NFL."

Even though he's not at the Senior Bowl (probably because he left as a junior), C Peter Konz shows up on Pro Football Weekly's Mock draft 1.0 at No. 18 to San Diego ("Konz has the strength and power to make an immediate impact and fortify the Chargers' interior").

The Senior Bowl will start at 3 p.m. CT with coverage beginning on NFL Network at 2:30 p.m.
