I know you as a football fan and draft watcher really wanted Geno in the Senior Bowl, but if he winds up the #1 overall pick, then clearly he made the correct decision.
It's the beginning of February. This thing is a marathon. Even if Geno impressed at the Senior Bowl, scouts probably would have forgotten about it by the combine and his pro day.
It's a load of unnecessary work. Geno made the decision that he didn't want to risk going back to his old habits after working hard at IMG. We don't get reports from IMG, but I'll bet you Wilson had a lot of corrections he was working on with Weinke that he slipped out of in one week of Senior Bowl practice.
