The Senior Bowl is a big opportunity for college football seniors to raise their draft stock as they head into the draft. Some of the people who came out on the winning side of that last year were Brooks Reed, now Texans linebacker, who had a strong showing during the game, and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson. Preforming well at practices and during the actual game can do wonders for their draft stock.
Nebraska cornerback Alfonzo Dennard may very well have hurt his stock before withdrawing with an injury. He displayed decent backpedaling, but when it came to turning his hips and going with the receiver he showed stiffness and a loss of speed. He’ll have to make up for that in individual workouts before the draft or else his draft stock could take a big hit.
The game starts at 3pm Central time. I’ll post an update after the game of players who shined and those that weren’t so impressive, along with a recap of the game.
