Miller will take center stage during game

Young’s strong play becoming common theme

The best-case scenario for a player at the Senior Bowl is to perform well, get noticed and generate a buzz among scouts, coaches and media. That scenario is unfolding for Boise State’s Titus Young.

Scheme plays a major role in evaluation process

One key thing to keep in mind for fans that closely track the draft process is how big a role scheme plays in a team’s evaluation. For example, when defensive back prospects are graded, there is much more that goes into that than just their physical ability.
