Tide, Tigers' other NFL hopefuls at Senior Bowl

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The second batch of NFL prospects from Alabama and Auburn are spending the week trying to improve their draft stock at the Senior Bowl.

Crimson Tide quarterback Greg McElroy and Auburn left tackle Lee Ziemba are among the schools' six players going through the weeklong audition for NFL teams.

The last two national championship teams figure to have a combined five first-round picks but all are juniors like Heisman Trophy winners Cam Newton and Mark Ingram.

Auburn's Josh Bynes and Zac Etheridge and Alabama's James Carpenter and Preston Dial are representing the South team in Saturday's game.

They've all got something to prove. McElroy, for one, says he's "going to try to prove people wrong this week and throughout the course of the process."
