Georgia Bulldog Trio Begins Senior Bowl Workouts



RELATED STORIES
ATHENS, Ga. --- Three former University of Georgia standouts linebacker Tony Taylor, defensive lineman Quentin Moses, and tight end Martrez Milner -- are among the 100 top NFL draft prospects participating in the 2007 Under Armour Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Alabama.

The Bulldog trio will play on the Senior Bowl’s South squad, which is being coached by San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and his staff. The North squad will be coached by Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden and his staff.

Taylor posted his finest season as a Bulldog in 2006, earning most valuable honors after leading the team with 96 tackles and seven interceptions. He was a second team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press (AP) and SEC coaches. Moses, a third team AP All-American, registered a team-high 32 quarterback pressures, tallied 33 tackles and had 4.5 sacks this past season. Milner, a first team All-SEC pick, led Georgia in receiving with 30 catches for 425 yards and three touchdowns in 2006.

In 2006, 15 Senior Bowl players were chosen in the first-round of the NFL Draft, and more than 90 percent of the Senior Bowl players are chosen in the draft each year.

This year’s players will have one practice per day during Senior Bowl Week, January 22-26, capped off by the 58th annual Under Armour Senior Bowl game on Saturday, January 27. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. in Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium, and the NFL Network will nationally televise the contest.

Fans will also be able to follow the players’ progress through the NFL Network’s complete coverage of this year’s Senior Bowl practices, as over 14 hours of Senior Bowl content will air during the week.

The Senior Bowl is the nation’s most unique football game and football’s premier pre-draft event, annually featuring the country’s best senior NFL draft prospects on teams representing the North and South that are coached by the entire coaching staffs from two National Football League teams. More than 700 NFL coaches, scouts and other front office personnel each year, also attend the Senior Bowl.

The Senior Bowl is also a non-profit, charitable event that has donated more than $4 million through the Food World-Senior Bowl Charitable Partnership over the last ten years. For more information, visit the bowl’s website at www.seniorbowl.com.
