2012 Senior Bowl: Buffalo Bills Chatting Up Alabama Prospects

New, comments

With the 2012 Senior Bowl in full swing this week down in Mobile, Alabama, fans of NFL teams have their ears open waiting to hear what prospects team personnel have been spotted with. Thanks to Chase Goodbread of TideSports.com, we now know that the Buffalo Bills have been spotted with two players from Alabama, the winner of this year's national championship.

Goodbread tweeted a picture of Alabama star outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw talking with a Bills scout. Upshaw, the defensive MVP of this year's national title game, is a 6'2", 270-plus pound 3-4 outside linebacker that spent his senior season racking up 51 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks and an interception.

The other player that a Bills scout was spotted talking to: Alabama receiver Marquis Maze, a 5'9", 180-pound future slot guy that finished his senior season with 56 catches, 627 yards and a touchdown.

This is interesting news, to be sure, but it's likely far more interesting to a guy like Marcell Dareus, who as an Alabama alumnus is a former teammate of both of these players.
