MOBILE, AL (KHNL) - Colt Brennan was noticeably missing from Sunday's parade of champions, but he had good reason.
The NFL hopeful arrived in Mobile, Alabama over the weekend in preparation for the senior bowl, where Brennan looks to bounce back from a forgettable Sugar Bowl.
"Obviously, you're always remembered for your last game, and if you watched the Sugar Bowl, you obviously see that I struggled in that we just didn't get it done, and I got hit in the mouth," said Brennan.
In the mouth, and in the NFL draft rankings. Last year, Colt was projected as a first round choice, but after the beating against Georgia, ESPN.com has him listed as a 2nd to 3rd round pick. Something, Brennan's hoping to change.
"This'll be a great opportunity for me, to come out and show everybody what I can do under center, and what type of quarterback I am, and you know I think it's just a great opportunity for me to improve my stock, and that's just what I'm trying to do," said Brennan.
The Sugar Bowl was one of the first chances people outside Hawaii got to see Brennan play, and his performance didn't answer a lot of the critics.
"There's a lot of question marks out there. Am I a system quarterback, everybody's waiting to see me, so I'm extremely excited to be here in Mobile and experience the Senior Bowl," said Brennan.
The game will be just as important as the week leading up to it, as all the players involved will be evaluated both on and off the field.
"There's a lot of pressure, a lot of interviews, and you know it's all to see how you handle it, so I'm kind of excited and I'm up for it, this is probably the most prestigious game you can be invited to," said Brennan.
Over 800 NFL coaches, scouts and team executives have arrived in Alabama to evaluate the players.
