Henry Anderson (WR) Stanford
Anderson helped himself with a very solid week. This is a kid that has size, toughness and plays hard all the time. He’s got great size and looks like he can be a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive end.
Sammie Coates (WR) Auburn
Coates was the top receiver from start to finish here in Mobile. He has size, deep speed and showed scouts that he can run the underneath and short routes as well as the deep ball. Coates consistently caught the ball and showed soft hands. He could be a late day one guy or certainly be selected in round two for the NFL Draft.
Jamison Crowder (WR) Duke
Crowder is another wide receiver that stood out all three days of practice. He’s small and a slot guy for sure. But he has speed, quickness and showed the ability to consistently catch the football.
Carl Davis (DT) Iowa
Davis was another solid performer from start to finish at the Senior Bowl practices. He possesses a good combination of size, speed and power and flashed some good things each and every day.
Phillip Dorsett (WR) Miami
Dorsett had an up and down career at Miami but he stood out here, especially on day two and three of the practice sessions. He’s another slot receiver/kick returner with outstanding speed and even better quickness. What was most impressive was how he consistently caught the football. That’s not always been his case.
David Johnson (RB) Northern Iowa
This small school running back showed up big this week. He’s got very good size yet can run like a smaller back. He showed vision, a nice bust and cut-back ability. Johnson displayed good blocking skills and hands to show he has all the tools needed.
Lorenzo Mauldin (OLB) Louisville
To me Mauldin comes away as one of the most prized prospects from this event. Coming in I thought he was a second round guy. I am leaving believing he has first round talent. This kid is big, long, fast and quick. He can rush the passer, which we all knew. But he showed the scouts here that he is pretty comfortable dropping in coverage and playing in space. Mauldin is just a very good athlete.
Joey Mbu (DT) Houston
Mbu has good size (6-3/312) and lateral agility. Mbu has a quick first step off the ball and uses his hands well to disengage. More than anything he looked strong and has a huge lower body. I will be interested to see how things unfold for him the rest of the spring.
Cody Prewitt (S) Ole Miss>
Prewitt had a nice week. He showed scouts just how versatile he is as a safety. This Rebel can line up in the box or roam the back end in centerfield. He has good range and made some splash plays in the secondary.
Quenten Rollins (CB) Miami-Ohio
It’s very surprising to know that this kid played three years of basketball at Miami (Ohio) before making the move to football and playing cornerback. He’s so smooth and fluid and is a terrific athlete. He breaks on the ball well and showed excellent recovery speed when initially beaten on a route. Rollins has serious upside at the position. And he’s a bigger sized corner at 6-foot-0, 203-pounds.
Za’Darius Smith (DE) Kentucky
Laken Tomlinson (OG) Duke
Tomlinson had a good week and his stock should rise. This kid is scrappy and competes. He’s strong and hates to give up an inch. Tomlinson is strong at the point of attack and can move his feet. He plays low and plays fast.
Lynden Trail OLB)Norfolk State
It was a pretty talented outside linebacker group and this kid from South Florida could be darn good in time at the next level. He has unreal size at 6-foot-6 and he’s now north of 250-pounds. Trail should still add weight and needs to continue to bulk up, as he has the frame to hold it. He’s athletic and long off the edge with good speed and quickness. He also showed some things this week in coverage.
Clive Walford (TE) Miami
Walford displayed the best pass catching skills of all the tight ends this week. This kid from Miami made some seriously big plays on Wednesday and Thursday. He has size (6-4/265) but is best utilized flexed out and not in-line.
Kevin White (CB) TCU
White is another top-notch Horned Frog cornerback. He lacks ideal size (5-9/175) but does everything else very well. White excelled in man and zone and showed he has another gear when breaking on the ball.
T.J. Clemmings (OT) Pitt
Clemmings looks the part and for half the week he played the part of a potential first round draft choice. He has prototypical tackle size and length. Clemmings can slide and move his feet. He can get off the ball well and move. But he lost a lot of battles and played to inconsistently. It was surprising.
La’El Collins (OT) LSU
When he played left tackle Collins was impressive. He stoned a lot of guys. Collins looked good in both pass pro and in run blocking. But on Thursday he moved to left guard and really struggled. Sometimes it’s a hard adjustment for a guy that has played OT. Simply, the defender is on him much sooner when playing guard and Collins had issues with that. He’s used to playing in more space and having time to set up. This could be a concern. His stock could be down for teams that see Collins as a combo tackle/guard in the NFL.
Ty Montgomery (WR) Stanford
Montgomery just didn’t have a good week, as he dropped too many passes and didn’t really make any splash plays. Certainly he displayed a ton of talent when playing at Stanford.
Bryce Petty (QB) Baylor
There’s no question that Petty could spin the ball better than any signal caller in Mobile. This kid has a good arm and throws a beautiful ball. But Petty missed on many easy throws and reads each day. Sure it’s difficult to get on the same page with teammates in an all-star setting but he just threw with a lot of inconsistency for three days.
Austin Shepherd (OT) Alabama
Shepherd got beat a lot this week from the right tackle position. Many times he got beat off the ball and couldn’t recover. It was more so in pass pro than in run blocking.
