NFL Draft: Senior Bowl Preview

The 2012 Senior Bowl will be held on January 28 in Mobile, Alabama.  The Tar Heels wiill be well represented.  Here are the four players that will look to impress NFL scouts:
Zach Brown (Outside Linebacker):  Brown's success his senior season has helped his draft stock tremendously.  Going in to the NFL Brown has been ranked as high as the number one outside linebacker available in the draft and is a projected first round pick.
Tydreke Powell (Defensive Tackle):  Powell's senior season was a little disappointing considering the talented Defensive Ends that were on the line with him.   This run stopper should still be drafted in the later rounds.  Powell could help his draft stock a lot before draft day arrives.

Quinton Coples (Defensive End):  Coples ended his senior season with 7.5 sacks, 55 tackles and 15 of those for a loss.  Coples' 6'6" 285 pound frame is expected to be the first defensive end and Tar Heel to be selected in April.  
Dwight Jones (Wide Receiver):  The 6'4" Wide Receiver ended the season with 85 receptions, almost 1200 yards and 12 touchdowns.  Jones is expected to at least be a second round pick.  Jones is a big playmaking receiving threat that should have scouts, coaches and general mangers salivating.
