See the future
A top-five selection in each of the past five drafts has played in the Senior Bowl, and that may happen again this year. While none of the projected top three picks was here (Reggie Bush and Vince Young were juniors and Matt Leinart did not attend), potential top-five picks, such as D'Brickashaw Ferguson, DeMeco Ryans and Tamba Hali, are here.
A look at the top-five picks from recent Senior Bowls:
2005 - Cadillac Williams - Fifth pick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2004 - Phillip Rivers - Fourth pick - New York Giants (Traded to San Diego)
2003 - Carson Palmer - First pick, Cincinatti Bengals
2002 - David Carr - First pick, Houston Texans
2001 - LaDainian Tomlinson - Fifth pick, San Diego Chargers
