Continuing my run through Shanahan's Senior Bowl South roster, up next is Florida State OLineman, Zebrie Sanders. Sanders is a projected second round pick, and despite struggling at the Senior Bowl, he brings familiarity having run a zone blocking scheme at Florida State.

What did you learn your week at the Senior Bowl with the Shanahans?

Just how much of a grind it was. Way way faster level of play. Playing with the best talent, you really can't take a play off. All the different techniques and stuff and fundamentals. I learned a lot. The little stuff. It was a neat experience for me.

Other reporter questions...

How many hands have twisted your body?

Probably 50 all in the week, there's like 8 or 9 doctors looking at you like an alien or something.

You played violin as a kid?

Actually viola.

Last time you played?

When I graduated high school. I'm done with that now. It was a good childhood memory. My mom made me do it, it was cool though.

Why viola, not violin?

It's bigger for a bigger person.

What chair did you get to in the orchestra?

Second chair, I was pretty good.

So you had to fit in the concerts around football?

Definitely. Do practice, then go home real quick, change into a tuxedo and go play a
concert, that was my school dreams.

I haven't heard "Hail to the Redskins" played on a voila before, but I'm ready for it.
