2011 Senior Bowl Box Score, Recap, Results: The Players That Did, And The Players That Didn't

If you missed the game, and are just now checking out the box score, the answer is yes, it was that boring. The final score was 24-10. A majority portion of the game was in idle for the most part. There weren't very many players throughout that helped out their cause by a large margin. Leonard Hankerson, to most folks who caught the game stood out the most.

Despite earning MVP honors for the game, Christian Ponder looked a bit out of tune. Mike Mayock and Charles Davis both concured that Ponder would be well-suited for a west-coast-offense. In other words, they may have been trying to pimp Ponder to Jed York and Trent Baalke in a round about way. Ponder may not have had the best game in the Senior Bowl, or even the best college career both statistically and injury wise, but he stood out the most with his 2 touchdown passes. There were some ugly passes and some short range passes that were spot on. There have been mixed reviews on Ponder which still puts his draft status in question. What round will he be selected in is probably the most common of the questions.

Besides Ponder, the other two quarterbacks that looked pretty solid (minus a few issues here and there) were Colin Kaepernick and Greg McElroy. All three of those quarterbacks stood out the most both in practices as well as the game.

Defensively, Von Miller (Texas A&M Linebacker) really hit the ground running. He was a terror on the field terminating anything and everything in sight. The buzz surrounding the week of practices leading up to the game suggested that Miller was going to be a sure-fire stud at the next level and that he is a quick study. It is quite possible that Miller could be selected as a top 5 prospect. Particularly, considering that both head coaches for either team are in that top 5 should they not elect to trade back.

Cornerback Richard Sherman (Stanford) was another surprising player to emerge in the game. Sherman was all over the field making tackles and breaking up passes while he was in the game. It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh drops his name in a hat for Baalke to take a really hard look at.

Showcased below are some of the players who didn't do much to make themselves a little bit of extra money and then some who did.

It's just a short list in each category, but it showcases those who did what they could to elevate and then those who fell short. This is not just with the game in to consideration, but the week of practice preceeded by the game also.
