Senior Bowl Notes

  • Although he missed the last four games of the season with an injury, Campanaro accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl.
  • Throughout the week, the former Wake Forest star was steady, consistent and continued to make one catch after another.  He hasn’t wowed the scouts with speed or acrobatic catches, but he snags everything thrown his way.
  • Campanaro caught two passes for 11 yards during Saturday's game.

To completely understand how important Campanaro was to Wake Forest prior to his injury, consider this fact.  He missed the last four games of the year with a broken collarbone but still finished with 67 receptions in those eight games.  The next closest Demon Deacon had 19 receptions, less than a third of Campanaro's season total in four more games.
The Senior Bowl will be Campanaro's first action since he broke his collarbone against Syracuse.  When healthy, he's tough, finds a way to get open and makes clutch catches.  But, against top notch corners, can he get open v. man coverage?  Will "steady" be enough to raise his stock?  Can he shake off enough of the rust to show what he can truly do?
