Player Notes

Justin Marshall, WR, Buffalo

Justin Marshall was added to the NFLPA Bowl Roster as the fourth MAC player on the National Team. There are now five players from MAC schools at the NFLPA Bowl.

The American Team quarterbacks are an interesting group. ECU’s Holton Ahlers, Penn State’s Sean Clifford and Incarnate Word’s Lindsey Scott will be throwing passes for Marshall.

He’s already having success in passing one-on-ones, creating space and making a catch with a nice two drag.

Sidy Sow, OL, Eastern Michigan

Ric Serritella with FanNation writes that Sidy Sow might be working himself into a draftable grade.

Emory Hunt with Football Gameplan has been posting clips of practice to YouTube. Sow takes four reps in one on one pass protection in this video and looks good controlling the opposing linemen.

Chrisitan Sims, TE, Bowling Green

In another video from Football Gameplan, Christian Sims works the opposing defensive back for an easy completion in more one on one drills.

Zaire Barnes, LB, Western Michigan

Zaire Barnes wears #53 for the National Team with a brown Western Michigan helmet and can be seen throughout this video in pass coverage.
