Senior Bowl Notes
Jean-Baptiste accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
Many in the media thought that Jean-Baptiste lived up to the hype during his Senior Bowl week. Me/Us? Not completely sold. He still needs work on playing up to his size. We're talking a guy nearly 6'3" and 215 at cornerback but he plays the position like a wide receiver. He has tremendous ball skills and that was evident throughout Senior Bowl week. But, he's not the "big" corner mauler that the Seattle Seahawks have harvested over the past four years.
The former Husker finished Saturday's game with four tackles and a pass breakup.
