Pat Kirwan -- NFL Network:
I talked with one GM and two personnel directors this morning about the interviews they have conducted and a couple of players jumped out at them. LeRoy Harris from North Carolina State was impressive in more than one team meeting. Ryan Harris, the big tackle from Notre Dame, may have struggled on tape for a few teams, but he came across as a young man with the maturity and personality of a guy teams would like to have on their roster. For a player like Ryan, there may be a few players with a higher technical grade, but they may not fair as well in football intelligence. His interview will be a critical factor. As expected by me after interviewing Penn State offensive tackle Levi Brown, a number of times he made a few teams feel like he is the whole package. As one personnel man said to me, "You feel real good about the long-range chances for Levi when you get done talking to him." Finally, Tony Ugoh may have slipped a bit during Senior Bowl practices, but he has made a favorable impression on two teams in desperate need of offensive tackle help. You know the line of questioning went right to the struggles in Mobile, and he turned it around talking about what he learned down in Alabama. As one GM said, "Every player will have adversity; it's how they deal with it that I'm looking for."
I like to see that. ND players have a little something extra.
