Whitehurst draws praise at Senior Bowl workouts

ESPN's Ivan Maisel reports from Mobile, Ala., where offensive genius Norm Chow has been working with the quarterbacks for the North team. Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst impressed Tennessee Titans quarterback coach Craig Johnson:

"Charlie is the son of an ex-NFL player," Johnson continued. "He's got a very good makeup. He understands the small details. He's been in a lot of quarterback meetings. He's got a lot of skills. He had three different offensive coordinators [in three years]. He learned three different verbiages. He came in here and learned things at our level. That's as big as arm strength."

And in more Senior Bowl news, Mel Kiper, draft expert, sees Clemson cornerback Tye Hill as a first-round pick and Whitehurst going in the second round. Here's Kiper on Whitehurst: "Throws a great pass. Tight spiral. A little erratic." Here's Kiper on Hill: "Natural cover skills. Spunky. Confident."

And here's Tigerpundit on Kiper: "Chooses adjectives carefully. Gravity-defying hair. Superfluous."
