Senior Bowl Notes

  • Aikens accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
  • The former Flame star has a great body.  Yeah, I said it.  But, he didn’t look out of place at all.  He got beat a few times but he competed hard and as I mentioned to a few scouts “he’s moldable clay”.
  • He's shown that he can run with receivers but has to be a little less "clutch and grab" in man coverage, but he's ultra-aggressive and hasn't backed off once.  Very confident and competitive.
  • Aikens tallied three tackles during Saturday's game.
