Senior Bowl Notes

  • Colter accepted an invitiation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
  • The former Northwestern do-it-all star impressed throughout the Wednesday morning practice.  Many expect Colter to play in the slot and eventually be a tremendous slot receiver at the next level, but he showed that he can get downfield AND make a play.  During team drills, he beat one of the North team corners on a go route and laid out for a catch in the end zone.  Quite impressive for a guy that hasn’t played but 30% of his snaps (or less) at receiver and is targeted to be more of a slot WR in the future.
  • After Wednesday's practice, Colter decided to have surgery on his ankle, which ended his week in Mobile.  He proved that he could more than handle playing receiver full-time but felt like he needed the rehab time to get his ankle right for his Pro Day in April.


It's a shame Colter wasn't healthy this season as Northwestern took a clear left turn when he was unable to be in the lineup.  He's the epitome of an old school, do-it-all player that was the heart and soul of the Northwestern Wildcats for three years.
Colter played all over the field during his time in Evanston (QB, RB and WR) but he'll probably settle into a slot WR position at the next level.  Given his understanding of defenses from having played quarterback and his stop-and-cut-on-a-dime quickness, he's tailor made for that position.  Think Randall Cobb and that's what Colter COULD be.  The week in Mobile will be huge for him to show that he can succeed at that spot going forward.
