MOBILE, Ala. -- After more than 40 career starts, William Vlachos is looking to settle in. His career at the University of Alabama is over, and after four years in Tuscaloosa, Vlachos finds himself a stranger in a strange town.

So much has changed. The sights, the players, the coaches and even the language is different. At the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., the 23-year-old center is trying his hand at something new, trying to prove he can play on Sundays after a career of autumn Saturdays in the South.

“You’re talking about an entirely new snap count,” Vlachos said. “(Georgia’s) Ben Jones and I have started 40 games with the same snap count. You’re talking about a completely new set of hands behind you so it’s tough.
