One week after his teammate Dean Lowry impressed at the East-West Shrine Game, Dan Vitale has reportedly performed well in front of NFL scouts this week at the Senior Bowl. Vitale, a four-year contributor for Northwestern at superback will make the transition to fullback with an eye on an NFL career. A proven run blocker, the big question coming into the week for Vitale would be his ability to pick up blitzes in the backfield. So far, practice reports indicate he has been more than able to contribute in pass protection.
The Chicago-area native was selected as part of the South team for Saturday's game in Mobile, Alabama, the most prestigious college all-star game in the country. He'll be coached by Gus Bradley and the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff. Last season, former Northwestern safety Ibraheim Campbell played in the Senior Bowl before being drafted in the fourth round by the Cleveland Browns.
