MOBILE, Ala-Former Florida State Standout Christian Ponder is preparing to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile.
By most accounts Ponder is looking pretty good over there, Bills coach Chan Gailey says Ponder shows no signs of the injuries of the last two seasons, and is throwing the ball extremely well. As for the nerves of going through this week long audition of sorts, no problem for the guy with the MBA!
"Aw man it's definitely an amazing opportunity," Ponder said. "If this is nerve racking then you have no business being a quarterback. I mean you've got to deal with a lot more pressure than this. You know personally I'm just trying to have fun with the whole experience, I'm enjoying myself, you know it's been a fun ride."
Alabama QB Greg McElroy is also on the South Squad. The Senior Bowl kicks off at 3central Saturday.
