This year’s Senior Bowl featured a strong performance by the South team—mainly the South defense. They made it extremely difficult for the North’s offense to find any type of rhythm. The biggest thing that stood out from this team was the quarterback struggles on the North squad.

One player who had a great day was Auburn defensive end Dee Ford. He registered several sacks while generating pressure on several other plays. It was his quickness off the ball that allowed him to get the edge and make some offensive tackles look foolish. Teams are always looking for players capable of generating pressure off the edge.

Tajh Boyd had the worst day out of the quarterback group, with Stephen Morris and David Fales coming in at right behind. Boyd struggled to make quick reads, his ball placement was off the mark and threw a terrible interception along the sideline. His problems in the game capped off a poor week for Boyd and could cause him to fall in the draft.

Another player who stood out in a negative way was Baylor’s Cyril Richardson. He has the size teams look for in an interior offensive lineman but really struggles to move laterally. The best example of this was when Harvard’s Caraun Reid easily slipped past Richardson and tallied a sack.

Two defenders who caught my eye were Florida State’s Telvin Smith and Nebraska’s Jean-Baptise. Smith uses his explosiveness to make plays all over the field and on special teams. Jean-Baptiste played a smart and physical game allowing very little separation.

Wisconsin’s James White had the best day of all the running backs showing that he’s a versatile player who can make plays in the running and passing game. Another offensive player who stood out was tight end Crockett Gilmore who showed good hands and body control.
It’s important to remember that this game/week of practice is just one piece of the puzzle. While several players have helped themselves, overacting to just one portion of the process would be a mistake.
