Senior Bowl Notes
Hageman accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
On Monday, the former Gopher showed active hands and looked to get up the field on every snap. I liked how active he was, but I want to see him get up the field more consistently and defeat the man in front of him more quickly.
Tuesday, Hageman was up and down but he showd his strength by rag dolling Miami OL Brandon Linder during 1-on-1 pass rush drills. It's been clear through two days that when Hageman is cranked up to a full volume, he's a terror to block. But, he runs hot and cold and that's slowed him down during the first two days.
Hageman has been tough to block inside and outside and looks like a great fit for a team looking for a penetrating 3-4 DE. When Hageman gets beat, it is usually because he is playing too high off the snap.
