Senior Bowl – Day 2 – South

WR James Washington had another standout performance. He got off to a slow start, but then made play after play. He is physical and can deal with aggressive CBs. He has terrific hands and hauled in a long TD. Washington has the speed to go deep, but is also comfortable working the middle of the field. He’s got an odd build at 5-11, 210, but I’ve been very impressed with him so far.

***

DT Andrew Brown had a good day. He lists at 6-4, 294 and I wondered if some teams might view him as a 4-3 DE. He looked a bit stiff for that. He can be a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT. Brown was attacking up the field today and was regularly disruptive. He’s quick off the ball and knows how to shoot gaps. He won’t fit every scheme, but he could make a 1-gap team pretty happy.

***

The South QBs are not impressive. Virginia’s Kurt Benkert had some good throws, but was frustratingly inconsistent. He made a terrific throw on a deep ball for a long TD. On the next rep, he again went deep and to the same area. That pass was out of bounds. Benkert doesn’t have a strong arm. He needs to have his feet set to get something behind the ball.

M.J. Stewart looks like the best CB in Mobile from what I’ve seen. He is smart and instinctive. He can lock up receivers on short and intermediate routes. He knows how to really stick with them. His big issue is deep speed. Both days a WR was able to get a step on Stewart and he just couldn’t make up the ground.

Stewart did get some work as a PR. He looked good catching the ball and it was a cold (COLD!), windy day.

***

Missouri WR J’Mon Moore struggled on Tuesday, but bounced back on Wednesday. He caught the ball well and showed pretty good speed.

***

CB Siran Neal is physical. Too physical. He grabs, holds and pushes WRs on just about every single play. He did have one good PBU on a Red Zone drill. Neal needs a lot of work or he will be a penalty machine in the NFL.

***

OT Alex Cappa had a good showing. I watched some of him in individual drills and team periods.

***

OT Brandon Parker, another small school guy, also was solid.

***

LB Shaquem Griffin did get the best of Parker on one rep. Griffin is 6-0, 223 and Parker is 6-7, 303. Griffin used an explosive burst and then stayed low. Parker had no chance to get a piece of him. Griffin is a talented pass rusher, but with his size he must be able to play off the ball. He hasn’t stood out to me in that area so far, but I haven’t been focused on him.

***

QB Kyle Lauleta had a couple of TD throws in a Red Zone session. He hit Tre’Quan Smith for one and then Marcell Ateman for the other. Lauleta made some good throws in the individual drills, but hasn’t really stood out.

***

DL Da’Shawn Hand got the best of Taylor Hearn and Austin Corbett in individual drills. He got pressure up the middle a couple of times.

***

WR D.J. Chark has had some good moments. He went upfield on one route and then cut hard to the inside and crossed the field. He easily pulled away from the CB. Chark also had an impressive catch. The wind did give him some problems when trying to field punts.

***

LB Darius Leonard has been impressive. He broke up a pass today and also made a nice play in the Red Zone. He can run, hit and looks solid in coverage. That’s what you want in a 4-3 LB these days.

***

OG Colby Gossett has good size at 6-5, 304. He anchors well. There are times when he can play too high. I don’t have a good feel for his footwork yet. He had multiple good blocks today, including beating Hand on one rep.

***

WR Byron Pringle can really snatch the ball. Love WRs that are hands-catchers.
