Draft Breakdown — Senior Bowl Diary: Day 2
Today at practice we finally got to see both teams play – and in ideal weather. The sun was shining and even though there was a bit of a nip in the air the field conditions were perfect.

The 2012 Senior Bowl practice kicked off on the second day with the North team practicing in the morning session. The sessions began with some special teams drills and saw N.C.
