    Mobile, Ala. --- The best NFL prospect in Oregon is undoubtedly Stephen Paea, Oregon State's beastly defensive tackle that is a surefire first rounder, and possibly even a top ten pick.

    But Paea may have hurt himself more than any other player at the Senior Bowl this week - literally. The big Tongan tore the meniscus in his right knee on the first day of practice, and had surgery later in the week, forcing him to miss the game.

    For what it's worth, the Dallas Morning News said he looked like "a mauler" before the injury, and that he was tossing blockers aside with ease.
