The following players have either met or will meet with the listed teams this week or the listed teams showed interest in those players during Under Armour Senior Bowl practices.

Erik Ainge (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3155343)/QB/Tennessee (http://tennessee.scout.com/) - Atlanta Falcons (http://atl.scout.com/), Miami Dolphins (http://mia.scout.com/), New England Patriots (http://nwe.scout.com/), St. Louis Rams (http://stl.scout.com/)

Erik Ainge, Tennessee (9/1)
Height: 6-5. Weight: 225.
40 Time: 4.82.
Projected Round: 3-4.
No one was sure how well Erik Ainge would play in the wake of breaking his pinky prior to the California game. The Vols couldn't win, but Ainge was 32-of-47 for 271 yards and three touchdowns. No one will ever question his toughness again.

Has the size you want in an NFL quarterback. Threw 19 touchdowns and just 9 interceptions in 2006.

Tashard Choice (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3074318)/RB/Georgia Tech (http://georgiatech.scout.com/) - Dallas Cowboys (http://dal.scout.com/), Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers (http://car.scout.com/), St. Louis Rams

Tashard Choice, Georgia Tech (1/27)
Height: 5-10. Weight: 210.
40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round: 2-3.
Tashard Choice was the best running back at the Senior Bowl, running over defenders while showing quickness. He definitely made himself a candidate for the second round.

Choice looked great against Notre Dame, compiling 196 yards and two touchdowns on just 26 carries. Choice's size-40 combination is better than Mike Hart's and Ray Rice's.

Averaged 100 yards per game during conference play, rushing for 1,473 yards and 12 TDs. How will he perform without Calvin Johnson?

Limas Sweed (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3019079)/WR/Texas (http://texas.scout.com/) - Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks (http://sea.scout.com/), Chicago Bears (http://chi.scout.com/), Pittsburgh Steelers (http://pit.scout.com/), Oakland Raiders (http://oak.scout.com/)

Limas Sweed, Texas
Height: 6-4. Weight: 212.
40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round: Top 25 Pick.
I've dropped Sweed a bit because it's quite apparent that his 40 time will really hurt him.

I have a feeling Limas Sweed's stock may slip come Combine time (see 40 time), but the fact remains that he's the top possession receiver in this class.

Harry Douglas (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3054191)/WR/Louisville (http://louisville.scout.com/) - Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints (http://nor.scout.com/), Houston Texans (http://hou.scout.com/)

Harry Douglas, Louisville
Height: 5-11. Weight: 178.
40 Time: 4.32.
Projected Round: 2-3.
Fumbles and drops. That basically tells the story of Harry Douglas' awful performance at West Virginia. In the biggest game of the year, Douglas came up small.

Harry Douglas is a beast. A week after recording 13 receptions, 223 yards and a score, he had 12 catches, 205 yards and a touchdown against Syracuse.

Is there any doubt Douglas is Brian Brohm's go-to guy? In a loss to Kentucky, Douglas caught 13 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown.

Set a Louisville record with 1,265 receiving yards in 2006. Also had 70 receptions and six touchdowns. He and Mario Urrutia combined for 13 catches in the annual spring game.

Marcus Harrison (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3295594)/DT/Arkansas (http://arkansas.scout.com/) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers (http://sdg.scout.com/)

Marcus Harrison, Arkansas
Height: 6-2. Weight: 310.
40 Time: 4.98.
Projected Round: 3.
A 310-pound defensive tackle who can run a sub-5.0 40? Think scouts will drool all over him? Marcus Harrison missed tons of time with a knee injury, so that'll be a concern.

Titus Brown (http://sea.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=8&c=1&nid=3017208)/OLB/Mississippi St. - St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins

Titus Brown, Mississippi State (1/24)
Height: 6-3. Weight: 239.
40 Time: 4.68.
Projected Round: 4.
Titus Brown weighed in at 239 pounds at the Senior Bowl, meaning he'll be limited to linebacker at the next level. This is pretty disappointing from a prospect who seemed so promising.

What I saw in the LSU-Mississippi State game really impressed me. Brown dominated a very strong LSU line and was often unstoppable. Also showed great character when he went over to struggling quarterback Mike Henig and offered words of encouragement.

The production is there - Brown had 7.5 sacks in 2006 after a 1.5-sack campaign in 2005. Started all but one game last year.
