Senior Bowl 2020 Game Day
Frank Coyle – Head scout Draft Insiders’
The 2020 Senior Bowl game is here with an interesting roster of pro prospects who completed the week of practices, physicals and interviews.
The Draft Insiders’ February Newsletter and 2020 Yearbook will have extensive coverage of the Senior Bowl and the entire All-star postseason.
Look for QBs Justin Hebert, Jordan Love and Jalen Hurts to get extensive playing time while wideouts Michael Pittman, Chase Claypool and James Proche are expected to be featured in the passing game. TEs Brycen Hopkins and Adam Tautman had impressive practice sessions and could be featured in the passing game.
Runners, Lamical Perine, Antonio Gibson and Ke’Shawn Vaughn may not be household names, but should be featured here and given a chance to display their natural talent and capable of being impact playmakers Saturday. Perine is a well rounded back who can be a difference maker here.
The NFL Draft 2020 is a class dominated by defensive front seven prospects and this game features several impact pass rushers. DT Javon Kinlaw of South Carolina had a dominant performance thru mid week, but will sit out the game due to a minor injury. Marlon Davidson is primed for a huge effort and created continuous havoc in matchups. Look for edge rushers, Jason Strowbridge and Kenny Willekes to provide impact as outside rushers and possible difference makers in this game.
Linebackers, Malik Harrison, Evan Weaver and Anfernee Jennings showed speed, instincts and playmaking ability this week after fine careers. Look to them to be in the action throughout the contest to be the stars on their units. This will be the final real football action in these prospects for the year with the offseason workout portion of the NFL Draft process hitting full stride next week both with the NFL Combine and school Pro Days.
