LSU has its fewest players in the Senior bowl since the 1990s, but the Tigers will have five players drafted. Cornerback Patrick Peterson may be the second player taken. Others picked will be wide receiver Terrance Toliver, defensive tackle Drake Nevis linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, tailback Steven Ridley and possibly kicker Josh Jasper could be picked in the seventh round.

Nevis was picked to play in the game, but had to pull out because of a minor foot injury.

Kickoff the the 59th annual Senior Bowl will be at 3 p.m. on Saturday in Ladd-Peebles Stadium on the NFL Network...

Saints cornerback Jabari Greer played through the last half of last season with a shoulder injury and he could barely lift his arm above his head. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said that's why Greer struggled during the second half of the season...Drew Brees ranks No. 7 among American athletes in's annual poll. Peyton Manning ranks No. 1 because he bests all other American athletes in "the combination of athletic achievement plus the ability to connect with an audience on a deeper, more personal level”. In other words, Manning has the best combination of on-field performance and marketing power. On last year's list, Manning was behind Tiger Woods and LeBron James. Giants quarterback Eli Manning was No. 17...
