Day 3 featured some unexpected call-ups and some heavy sleepers. Whose stock rose and whose dropped? Here’s our list.
RB – Dylan Laube – New Hampshire – Buy
Dylan Laube has been the biggest sleeper coming into the Senior Bowl, but his performance this week has certainly put him on the radar of scouts and coaches. His route running is good and polished, he stacks his defenders quickly and does a nice job of attacking the defender’s outside foot. He will provide a nice jolt of speed for any offense he plays in on the next level.
CB – Khyree Jackson – Oregon – Buy
Khyree Jackson’s 6’3” frame and elite speed caused some issues for wide receivers. He has the size to stay physical against aggressive route runners and has the speed to stay stride for stride against speed receivers. His hips are fluid and his recovery speed shined.
RB – MarShawn Lloyd – USC – Buy
MarShawn Lloyd showcased a handful of good traits. He flourished in the passing game, consistently making catches in traffic and showed solid route running and being able to dig his feet into the ground to quickly change direction. He also showed good vision in the run game with nice cutbacks and elusiveness to win extra yards before contact.
IOL – Dominick Puni – Kansas – Buy
Dominick Puni had a solid outing taking reps at both guard and center showing out his good strength and solid anchor ability.
CB – Kalen King – Penn State – Sell
I haven’t been sold on Kalen King after this week’s set of practices. His reaction speed and fluidity weren’t consistent enough, getting easily beaten by some of the underperformers this week.
TE – Ben Sinnot – Kansas State – Buy
Ben Sinnot was one of the more highly touted tight ends coming into the Senior Bowl. However, he didn’t live up to the hype until now. We saw his good route-running ability show up multiple times in different periods of practice. He does a nice job of getting in and out of his cuts to quickly beat the receiver while also showing some good hands and body control.
DL – Justin Eboigbe – Alabama – Buy
Eboigbe had a nice day at the office, winning most of his 1-on-1 reps. He showed a nice combination of power and finesse in the pass rush. He got stifled a bit by outside tackle Texas product Christian Jones when using straight power. However, aside from that he had an encouraging day for scouts and coaches.
OT – Travis Glover – Georgia State – Buy
Travis Glover was a late call-up and arrived in Mobile Wednesday morning. He made the most out of his call up impressing coaches during 1-on-1 and team sessions. He showed good anchor and solid feet being able to stay in front of the defender. He got a little fiery towards the end of the 1-on-1 sections going up against Texas Tech defensive lineman Myles Cole where he won the rep nicely but could’ve caused an in-game penalty for some extracurriculars.
LB – Jackson Sirmon – Cal – Buy
Jackson Sirmon had himself a solid day, showing out his athleticism, ball-hawking, and hustle gave him the play of the day picking off Joe Milton (almost twice).
S – Tykee Smith – Georgia – Hold
Tykee Smith can start to rise if he builds off of this practice into the game on Saturday, it took a couple of days for him to shine but he did just that coming off with a pick off a deflection, and nice sticky coverages for multiple pass break-ups on the day.
