I know Ethan Skolnick touched on this as well.

Senior Bowl duty guides Dolphins' draft decisions
April 24, 2010

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -The day before the Senior Bowl in January, North team defensive end Jared Odrick crossed paths with South team coach Tony Sparano of the Miami Dolphins.

Odrick was in a feisty mood.

"I asked coach Sparano what the first play was going to be," Odrick recalled. "He said, 'We're sure as heck not telling you."'

Nearly three months later, Sparano and the Dolphins drafted Odrick because they liked what they saw up close - and not just his sense of humor.

In fact, the Dolphins devoted their first four picks in the NFL draft to Senior Bowl players. They were Penn State's Odrick, outside linebacker Koa Misi of Utah, guard John Jerry of Mississippi and linebacker A.J. Edds of Iowa.

Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland, a placekicker in the Senior Bowl in 1992, said the Miami regime benefited from Sparano and his staff coaching at the game in Mobile, Ala.

"Being around as much as we were, you really find out a lot more about the kids," Ireland said. "We really felt it was a competitive advantage for us over other teams to get to know these kids the way we did."

That the plus of coaching at the Senior Bowl. You get to see the work ethic of these kids during the week and the coaching staffs certainly take advantage of what they learn about a player during the week.
