Which players have improved their draft stock with impressive performances at the Senior Bowl?

Stock Up

Marvin McNutt, Wide Receiver, Iowa

Marvin McNutt's stock rose considerably after Tuesday's practice as he showed off his versatility as a wide receiver. McNutt showed an ability to get off the line and beat press coverage as well as run precise routes. His big, strong hands effortlessly plucked nearly every throw out of the air and he was quick enough to juke opposing cornerbacks. -- Charlie Bernstein

Alameda Ta’amu, Defensive Tackle, Washington

He looked average during one-on-one drills, but once the action moved to the team portion he pushed the pocket on several occasions, showing good leverage and strength. -- Tim Yotter

Cam Johnson, Defensive End, Virginia

Cam Johnson looked dominant at times coming off the edge during one-on-one drills at Senior Bowl practice on Tuesday. The 6-foot-3, 267-pound end caused headaches for the offensive tackles all day, including a win over Ohio State’s Mike Adams, who barely made it out of his stance by the time Johnson was in the backfield. -- Kevin Carden

Stock Down

T.J. Graham, Wide Receiver, N.C. State

After a solid first day in which T.J. Graham showed off his world-class speed, the former N.C. State cornerback struggled mightily on the second day of practice. Graham muffed two consecutive punts and struggled with drops all day long. -- Charlie Bernstein

Zebrie Sanders, Offensive Tackle, Florida State

Billed as arguably the best offensive tackle on display at the Senior Bowl and a possible first-round pick come April, Sanders struggled to keep stronger pass rushers at bay Tuesday in Mobile. It's natural for the defensive line to be ahead of the offensive line in the setting of an all-star game as there's less to learn from a playbook perspective, but Sanders has spent too much time in his own backfield -- and on his own backside. While the former Seminole played on both ends of the line as a senior, the Washington Redskins coaching staff decided to put him at right tackle and instead play Georgia's Cordy Glenn at the potentially more lucrative left tackle position. -- John Crist

Terrance Ganaway, Running Back, Baylor

He had a hard time reading his blocks Tuesday and spent too much time running laterally instead of taking the ball up the field. He also had a couple of drops as a receiver out of the backfield. He needs to show more toughness and be more decisive with his cuts if he is to win over scouts this week. -- Michael Lombardo
