2011 Senior Bowl: Colorado's Jalil Brown Impresses, Nate Solder Still A Top Tackle

Though Colorado Buffaloes cornerback Jimmy Smith draws most of the attention over his teammates, fellow cornerback Jalil Brown could see his draft stock rise over the next two months. According to Great Blue North Draft Report, Brown has turned some heads: "Played in the shadow of fellow corner Jimmy Smith at Colorado but had a coming out party of his own in Mobile where he was very physical in press coverage and quick and instinctive coming out of his backpeddle."

Brown is a 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback who finished his four-year career with the Buffaloes 167 tackles, 21 passes deflected and six interceptions.

GBN also reports that Nate Solder is among a group of four offensive tackles who are looking to be considered the position's top prospect. None has emerged to take the spot yet, but Solder did show physicality. A 6-foot-8, 300-pound tackle will certainly be in demand during the draft, so if Solder can continue to develop in workouts he can solidify that spot.
