Purdue's Eric Hunter threw two touchdown passes and Carlton Miles of Florida blocked a punt to set up another touchdown, leading the NFC to a 21-6 victory over the AFC in yesterday's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. The NFC stopped the AFC three times inside the 20 without giving up points. Hunter impressed NFL scouts with his passing and running, and even recovered a fumble to earn the game's MVP award. He competed 3 of 6 attempts for 62 yards, including touchdown passes of 13 yards to Rice's Trevor Cobb and 12 yards to Tony McGee of Michigan.

FOXBORO, Mass. - The Eagles' coaches and scouts head for Mobile, Ala., today for Senior Bowl practice with the top personnel job under head coach Chip Kelly still unfilled. Over the weekend, one candidate was crossed off the list when the Texans promoted Brian Gaine to director of player personnel, pretty much to avoid losing him to the Birds. Miami personnel exec Chris Grier and Jacksonville exec Chris Polian remain in the running, along with Seattle's Scott Fitterer, in addition to in-house candidate Ed Marynowitz.

MOBILE, Ala. - Quarterbacks at all-star games have tough assignments. The six Senor Bowl signal callers will be playing off CliffsNotes of a new offense, throwing to unfamiliar receivers, and taking snaps from a new center in Saturday's NFL showcase. And they'll all do it from under center, not the shotgun for those more accustomed to the spread in college. All the while with dozens of scouts, coaches, and NFL execs studying their every move on and off the field. Not that anyone is complaining considering the potential rewards.

MOBILE, Ala. - So, if past form holds true, Andy Reid will be on hand watching the Senior Bowl practices that start Monday. As will Joe Banner. And Marty Mornhinweg. And Howie Roseman. But this time, only Roseman will be working for the Eagles. He will be with new Eagles coach Chip Kelly and Kelly's yet-to-be-announced staff, which people close to the situation confirmed will include Pat Shurmur, apparently as offensive coordinator. Shurmur was Reid's quarterbacks coach with the Eagles before leaving to become offensive coordinator in St. Louis, then head coach in Cleveland.

MOBILE, Ala. - A year after they passed on drafting a traditional 3-4 outside linebacker, the Eagles appear primed to fill a need after spending a season with converted defensive ends at those spots. Ideally, the Eagles want outside linebackers who can rush the passer, set the edge, and drop into coverage on both sides. That versatility poses challenges for opposing offenses. The Eagles had one good option in free agent Connor Barwin last season. Trent Cole, who started on the other side, had a good year, even though he was asked to move from end to linebacker.

The swallows have Mission San Juan Capistrano as their annual retreat hangout. Whales target the warmth of the south Pacific. Whooping cranes annually put Canada's northwest territories in their rear-view mirrors and head for the Texas coast. To each his own. Every third week of January, NFL coaches, scouts and personnel directors migrate to this historic Gulf Coast city for one reason: Senior Bowl week. They have been coming here for 45 years now, outnumbering the parking meters, packing the bars and restaurants and covering this town like sidewalk for six days of what has become an unofficial coaches convention.

Michael Robinson's running helped the North record a 31-14 victory over the South in the Senior Bowl yesterday in Mobile, Ala. The showcase game for senior NFL prospects didn't include many highlights for the most heralded offensive stars. But Robinson displayed a running ability that could bode well for a possible position move after a strong season at quarterback for Penn State. He led two touchdown drives with his legs, not his arm, and gained 63 yards on nine carries despite a sack.

MOBILE, Ala. - It's difficult for DaQuan Jones to get lost in a crowd. But the Penn State defensive tackle said he did just that during the first day of Senior Bowl practices with the North squad. "I started out kind of slow on Monday learning a couple of new plays," Jones said after Wednesday's session. "But I think two days in I picked it up a little bit. I had a couple of bad plays today, but that's football. " The 6-foot-3, 323-pound Jones had a strong senior season after playing in Jordan Hill's shadow as a junior.

MOBILE, Ala. - As the Eagles' "personnel executive" search continues, Chip Kelly will attend his first week of Senior Bowl practices as the team's de facto general manager. The Eagles' former GM, meanwhile, is not expected to be in attendance as practices begin on Tuesday. Howie Roseman will miss his first Senior Bowl in years, certainly since he became GM in 2010. Kelly, his assistant coaches and the Eagles' scouting staff will be here, however, as preparation for the draft begins in earnest.

MOBILE, Ala. - A year ago at this time, there was some question whether Lane Johnson was a first-round draft pick heading into the Senior Bowl. Could the Eagles find another sleeper at this year's game? Three of their last four first-round picks - including Johnson - played in the annual event, which begins Monday with weigh-ins and the first day of practice before Saturday's game. The Eagles have selected more prospects (18) who played in the Senior Bowl than any other NFL team during the last four drafts.

INDIANAPOLIS - Three of Ibraheim Campbell's seven older brothers played college football, but they never experienced what the Germantown native is going through this weekend. Campbell, who is the youngest of 11 children, is the first in the football-playing family to knock on the door of the NFL. Northwestern's under-the-radar safety, a Chestnut Hill Academy graduate, has seen his draft stock rise in the last two months. He has a chance to continue that trajectory when the defensive backs go through testing and drills Monday at the annual scouting combine.

INDIANAPOLIS - Southeastern Louisiana quarterback Bryan Bennett doesn't think about what might have been, he said yesterday at the NFL Scouting Combine, doesn't think how much higher his draft profile might be today had he won the 2012 Oregon starting quarterback competition with Marcus Mariota. "When the question comes up, you could think about it and wonder, but I don't want to spend too much time thinking about what could have happened, and really focus more on what I can do with my opportunity now," said Bennett, who transferred to Southeastern Louisiana and played 2 years there after backing up Mariota in Chip Kelly's final Oregon season.

PHOENIX - The Eagles interviewed the Seahawks director of college scouting, Scott Fitterer, for their personnel executive opening, but he decided to stay in Seattle, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Tuesday. ESPN had reported that the Eagles were expected to interview Fitterer, but there was not any confirmation that a meeting had occurred until Schneider answered questions Tuesday at Super Bowl media day. "He spoke with the Philadelphia Eagles, kept it on the down low," Schneider said.

MOBILE, Ala. - In January 2010, Howie Roseman entered Senior Bowl week as the Eagles' newly minted general manager, if not yet in name. An official announcement came days later, but the ubiquitous Roseman already had begun the duties of the only job he has ever wanted. He huddled with his personnel staff and scouted practices, he organized meetings with draft prospects, and he met with agents of both Eagles players and prospective free-agent targets. He couldn't yet speak publicly, but he introduced himself to an Eagles reporter and offered to give background information on a few seniors.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles picked a bad draft to press their need for an outside linebacker. This year's class is loaded with talented edge rushers, according to many scouts and draft analysts like NFL Network's Mike Mayock. "It's one of the best drafts I've seen recently for edge rushers," Mayock said this week during Senior Bowl practices. "Some of the guys are 4-3s, some are 3-4s, some can do both. Some of the juniors that aren't here are really gifted and will be at the top end. "But I think it's one of the deepest outside linebacker-defensive end groups we've seen in a while.

MOBILE, Ala. - Considering how he thought he performed in the first two days of Senior Bowl practices, Deion Barnes may have wanted to reconsider his decision to leave Penn State with one more year of eligibility. But Thursday was better than Tuesday and Wednesday, the defensive end said, and he still has the game on Saturday to impress scouts and improve his stock for the draft. Early indications are that he'll be selected in the middle to late rounds. "The first two I didn't do as well as I wanted to," Barnes said.

MOBILE, Ala. - Chip Kelly made the rounds Tuesday at Senior Bowl practices, jumping from the North session to the South session 40 minutes away in Daphne with particular ease. But he saved some strength for after the South practice when reporters approached him and got only one question off. Do you have a time line for when you will hire a new general manager? "When we find the right guy," Kelly said as he zipped off the field and to his car. The Eagles coach hasn't spoken publicly since owner Jeffrey Lurie handed him control over personnel earlier this month.

MOBILE, Ala. - Quinten Rollins said he doesn't recall the name of the Baltimore Ravens scout who came up with the idea that he try football again, after using up his college basketball eligibility. Seems odd, given that Rollins is now a major generator of buzz at the Senior Bowl, following his one-and-only season as a cornerback at Miami of Ohio. But as this draft process continues, if there is a God in heaven or an ESPN in Bristol, Conn., surely Rollins and the anonymous Ravens scout will be reunited.

MOBILE, Ala. - Chip Kelly watched intently from behind the end zone as his former college quarterback fired passes in his direction. Earlier, before practice, the Eagles coach met with the dual-threat prospect, a player he recruited to Oregon. Could they be reunited in the NFL? It's possible, but the ex-Oregon quarterback wasn't Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy winner whom some Eagles fans are clamoring for despite the long odds Kelly faces if he wants to draft him. The Eagles have a much better chance of landing Bryan Bennett, who lost a competition with Mariota in 2012 before he transferred out of Oregon.

MOBILE, Ala. - Standing on the Ladd-Peebles Stadium field after yesterday's North team practice, cornerback Josh Shaw clearly knew the real question was coming. Shaw wasn't fooled by the reporters' initial queries, asking how he thought Senior Bowl week was going, who he thought the toughest guys to cover were thus far. Shaw's answers to those warmup tosses were short and generic, encouraging a cut to the chase. OK, then. What does Shaw tell NFL teams about the incident that made him a national discussion topic late last August?
