Alualu has displayed work ethic, an unreal motor and high productivity in the journey from California Golden Bear to the NFL. On Saturday night in Mobile, Alabama he continued to make his mark, with a fumble recovery and several quarterback hurries in the North's 31-13 victory over the South. As he explains in his interview with DraftNasty, he's just thankful for anything that comes his way.
As the humble, gentle giant concluded his collegiate career Saturday at the Senior Bowl, he took some time with DraftNasty's Corey Chavous to reflect on what lies ahead. While Iupati is quite proud of the Vandals' ascension in the WAC, he is equally intent on continuing to improve over the next couple of months in preparation for the 2010 NFL Draft.
The two hard nosed defensive linemen from the University of Georgia have made quite an impact on the SEC during their respective careers. All week long Owens has done his best to make an impact as a guy who can clog up the middle, while Atkins continues to demonstrate versatility and quickness. DraftNasty got a chance during Senior Bowl week to catch up with the talented duo as they continued their trek to the NFL.
