E.J. Manuel Wins Senior Bowl MVP as South Beats North 21-16

Florida State QB E.J. Manuel has won the Senior Bowl Most Outstanding Player, rushing for a TD (he was actually stopped short, but they weren’t going to look it over) and throwing for another.

Most impressive the whole week and sacking the QB once in the game was UConn LB Sio Moore.

Three players caught interceptions: Utah State CB Will Davis, Missouri LB Zaviar Gooden, and Georgia FS Bacarri Rambo.

Manuel went 7/10 passes for 71 yards with an intercpetion for the South while Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson was 8-for-11 for 40 yards and Oklahoma’s Landry Jones completed just 3-of-9 passes for 16 yards. Jones is used to the shotgun, and seems like a Greg McElroy/Matt Moore game manager type but still has upside that exceeds that.

Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib struggled, but – ultimately – he and West Virginia QB Geno Smith have the arm strength, prototypical size, and quick release that will shoot them into the top 10 of the NFL Draft based on the importance of the QB position and also because of the lack of any other great quarterbacks.

Hit “Like” if you have a QB or two you are rooting that could be selected in the 2013 NFL Draft!
