Senior Bowl - North Evals

Outside linebacker Michael Sam, defensive tackle Aaron Donald and offensive tackle Seantrell Henderson are some of the players that stood out today at the Senior Bowl for the North squad.

North
Aaron Donald (DT) Pitt
Donald was impressive today. May not be the biggest defensive tackle out there but he's a load to handle. He has a terrific get off and gets up field in a hurry. Donald plays with good leverage, is quick and strong. I also love his motor. Donald checked in at 6-0 7/8, 288-pounds, 31 ¾ arm length and 77 3/8 wing span.

Ra'Shede Hageman (DT) Minnesota
I have Hageman as the top defensive tackle in the draft right now but I thought Donald outplayed him today. This former tight end is huge at 6-foot-6, 318-pounds. He has athleticism but didn't dominate like one would think. He did have one splash play during one on one drills where he got underneath Miami offensive lineman Brandon Linder and threw him [in the air] back a few yards. He checked in with 9 5/8 hand size, 33 ¾ arm length and 81 ¾ wing span.

Seantrell Henderson (OT) Miami
I thought Henderson had a really good day. For his size, Henderson's sure light on his feet. He looked terrific in the run game and did well in pass pro. The only guy I saw that beat him was Missouri outside linebacker Michael Sam. He checked in at 6-6 7/8, 331-pounds, 10 3/8 hand size, 34 ¼ arm length and 84 wing span.

Josh Huff (WR) Oregon
Huff has one gear and it's fast. He made a few plays, getting behind the secondary on deep routes. I thought he caught the ball well. Huff could be a diamond in the rough. He's a former running back still learning how to play the position.

Stanley Jean-Baptiste (CB) Nebraska
How would you like to have a long 6-foot-3, 220-pound corner? That's exactly what Jean-Baptiste is. He had a solid say and I can see why the NFL scouts like this kid. He can turn his hips and run with receivers. He's physical in press coverage. Huff checked in at 5-11, 201-pounds, 9 1/8 hand size, 30 ½ arm length and 74 1/8 wing span.

Tyler Larsen (C) Utah State
Larsen did very well today in battling some very good defensive tackles. He more than held his own. In fact, he won a lot more reps then he lost. He has good feet, solid base and is strong at the point of attack. Larsen checked in at 6-3 ½, 317-pounds, 9 3/8 hand size, 30 ½ arm length and 74 1/8 wing span.

Weston Richburg (OG) Colorado State
Richburg is another surprise for me of this day on the North offensive line. He caught my attention in one on one drills where he more than handled Hageman on a few occasions. He looks strong and plays with good leverage. Richburg checked in at 6-3 ½, 300-pounds, 9 hand size, 31 ¾ arm length and 78 ¼ wing span.

Michael Sam (OLB) Missorui
I thought he was the prospect of the day for the North. He played most of his career with his hand down but Sam's playing a new position at outside linebacker. He didn't lose many one on one battles, showcasing his speed, quickness and athleticism on the edge. He did a nice job playing in space and showed the ability to redirect. He even slid inside and played some ‘Mike'. On one play during the one on one session he did have his hand on the ground and blew right past Henderson. Certainly he will have a learning curve if he transitions to this position but he looks like he could thrive in a 3-4 scheme. Sam checked in at 6-1 ½, 260-pounds, 9 1/8 hand size, 33 ¼ arm length and 80 ¼ wing span.

Charles Sims (RB) West Virginia
Overall, I thought he had the best day of the running backs. He caught the ball well and ran hard. I like his versatility. He can run between the tackles and has enough speed to take the edge. Sims checked in at 5-11 7/8, 214-pounds, 8 ¼ hand size, 30 ½ arm length and 74 ¾ wing span.

James White (RB) Wisconsin
White started off on fire and excelled in pass pro drills against blitzing ‘backers and safeties. He's thickly built in the lower body and really used leverage to his advantage. That's a big key to playing at the next level. As a running back, like Sims, he showed versatility. He can be a factor in the passing game and is a very good runner, showing patience and deceptive power. White checked in at 5-9, 206-pounds, 8 3/8 hand size, 28 5/8 arm length and 69 ¼ wing span.
