Senior Bowl Positional Rankings- Offense

Welcome to's Senior Bowl Positional Rankings. Find out where our legion of NFL Experts ranked the top performers at each offensive position group.


1. Jake Locker, Washington- Locker has nearly perfect mechanics and footwork, and his arm strength is not a question. If he can button down his accuracy, Locker could go as high as Top 10.

2. Colin Kaepernick, Nevada- Kapernick has an odd throwing motion, similar to Ben Roethlisberger's. Other than the odd delivery, Kapernick has plenty of arm strength and is an excellent athlete.

3. Ricky Stanzi, Iowa- Stanzi measured in bigger than most thought at 6'5", and has had moments of brilliance. Arm strength is unquestionable, but there are accuracy concerns.

4. Greg McElroy, Alabama- McElroy surprised many as he has shown an ability to look off defenders and deliver the football accurately. Arm strength is a question.

Running Backs

1. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma- Murray is an explosive, upright runner who is a natural catcher of the football. Some compare him to a bigger Jamaal Charles.

2. Bilal Powell, Louisville- Powell showed nice burst and is able to run between the tackles or outside. He's been a nice surprise thus far and has drew the attention of several scouts.

3. Derrick Locke, Kentucky- The 5'9", 190 lb. Locke is likely a third-down back on the next level, but if given the ball in space he can take any play to the house.

4. Roy Helu, Jr., Nebraska- Helu is a no nonsense downhill runner who is not a natural catcher of the football. Still, he's shown an ability to make tough yards.

5. Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State- The ultra-productive collegiate back has been able to hide behind the offensive line and burst through the hole. There are questions to whether he can be an every down back.

Wide Receivers

1. Leonard Hankerson, Miami- The Miami wideout has run great routes and caught nearly everything thrown his way. A great 6'3" frame gives him the potential to grow into a number one receiver role on the next level.

2. Jeremy Kerley, TCU- Kerley turned heads with his Tuesday performance as he caught everything in sight and showed a suddenness and ability to get open.

3. Vincent Brown, San Diego State- Brown continues to impress scouts as he runs professional routes and catches passes in traffic. Brown has been one of the biggest surprises this week.

4a. Titus Young, Boise State- The speedy Young has comparable suddenness to DeSean Jackson but like most smaller receivers, his hands are a question mark.

4b. Austin Pettis, Boise State- The "Lightning" to Titus Young's "Thunder", Pettis is a solid target over the middle and should be a solid possession receiver on the next level.

Offensive Tackles

Tight Ends

1. Luke Stockar, Tennessee- Clearly the most impressive tight end in Mobile, Stockar has put on a show making one-handed catches and catches in traffic.

2. Lee Smith, Marshall- Certainly one of the Senior Bowl surprises, Smith has shown great hands and he's a punishing blocker. Speed concerns will keep him from being a high pick.

3. D.J. Williams, Arkansas- The most decorated tight end in Mobile hasn't been bad, he just hasn't stood out as much as his SEC counterpart Luke Stockar.

1. Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin- Carimi's two-day performance has graded out as the best thus far at his position. The Outland Trophy winner has shown a mean streak as he's thrown several opponents to the ground.

2. Anthony Castonzo, Boston College- Castonzo improved from Monday to Tuesday, and he's shown very good footwork.

3. Nate Solder, Colorado- Solder has been inconsistent and he's susceptible to speed rushers as his 6'8" frame can sometimes be used against him.

Interior Linemen

1. Rodney Hudson, Florida State- The former FSU standout was dominant in one-on-one drills as he clearly has been the best interior lineman in Mobile over the past two days.

2. DeMarcus Love, Arkansas- Love has shown good strength and feet, as he can play inside or outside.

3. Danny Watkins, Baylor- Watkins has been a nice surprise this week as the former Baylor Bear showed a mean streak through the first two practices. Great character from the former Canadian firefighter.

4. Kris O'Dowd, USC- Possibly the best pure center prospect in the draft, O'Dowd is one of the toughest, most cerebral players in Mobile.
