Small School CB Robert Alford Shines During Senior Bowl Week


Southeastern Louisiana CB Robert Alford has made a name for himself during Senior Bowl week. During the actual game, he almost took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. He has looked like a top notch corner during Senior Bowl practice and continued his stellar play during the game.

Playing at a small school makes it difficult to get noticed, but his play has turned heads at the Senior Bowl. This was his chance to make an impression and show that he can hang with the big boys and he made his name known.

The Chargers will be looking for a corner in the upcoming draft. Both the starting corners, Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer, are free agents and there is no telling what the new GM Tom Telesco wants to do with them. Even if Telesco does bring back one of the free agents, NFL teams are always looking for corners to add to their roster.

Alford will be available in the middle rounds of the draft if we wanted to take him.

    Going to be our 3rd round pick man. Gotta love ot when a small school guy just kills it. Let Cason and Jammer go and draft him, round 3, and Leon McFadden in round 4 with RB Franklin in round 5. My fist two would be OT Lane Johnson, since OT Eric Fisher won’t get by the Cardinals at 7, and OG Larry Wartford who couldn’t be beat and opened up a great lane for Franklin.

    I would be OK with that, depending on what happened in the earlier rounds.
