2015 Senior Bowl: Colorado State's Ty Sambrailo draft stock is slipping

Colorado State's Ty Sambrailo draft stock could be falling after a less than stellar week of Senior Bowl practices.

Colorado State Rams offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo had been shooting up the draft boards, and in some NFL mock drafts he has been pegged as a first round selection. However, during Senior Bowl practices his performance has likely caused his draft stock to dip.

Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft does not want to sound the alarm, but says that Sambrailo could slip out of the first round.

Not to make this an anti-Ty brigade, but Sambrailo had a chance to really show himself as a top 40 pick in Mobile. He didn't. Sambrailo's play clearly shows he's a player who has to add strength and may need to sit a year to do so in an NFL strength program. If he does get stronger, Sambrailo is a good left tackle candidate because of his flexibility and foot quickness. But defensive players often drove him backward and shed him during practices.

The game itself does not really allow for Sambrailo to improve his stock, as the game is more of a reward than anything.

One reason that Sambrailo's stock may have taken a hit is because he was spending time practicing at right tackle instead of playing left tackle which he played at Colorado State.

Even if his stock fell a bit, there is plenty of time for him to show some more of his skills at the NFL Combine and his pro day at Colorado State.
