Senior Bowl 2019 Game Day – Players to Watch

Senior Bowl 2019 Game Day

Frank Coyle – Head scout Draft Insiders’

  The 2019 Senior Bowl game is here with an interesting roster of pro prospects who completed the week of practices, physicals and interviews.

 QB Will Grier of West Virginia is primed for a big game after a strong week of practices. He gets the advantage of working with his two top receivers, David Sills and Greg Jennings in this game. This trio put up incredible numbers over their careers in the pass happy Big 12 Conference. Grier is prepared for this game and has the makings of an MVP candidate. QB Trace McSorley also came ready to play and is focused on this game to prove he belongs with the top prospects. He is a smart savvy leader who can be a difference maker in this All-star event.

Look for wideouts Deebo Samuel, Travis Fulgham and David Sills along with runners Dexter Williams and Wes Hills to be featured in their offenses with chances to be impact playmakers Saturday.

The NFL Draft 2019 is a class dominated by defensive front seven prospects and this game features several impact pass rushers. Look for edge rushers Montez Sweat, Oshane Ximines, L.J Collier and Ben Banogu to provide impact as outside rushers to be difference makers in this game. Linebackers, Hanks, Pratt and Coney 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.

Senior Bowl Report – Wednesday Practices Move Inside Due to Weather

Senior Bowl 2019

Wednesday’s practices moving to South Alabama University
Statement from Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy:

“Because of potential bad weather on Wednesday, we have decided to move practices to South Alabama’s new indoor facility. Our number one priority is always player safety. Rather than risk injury to a player on a slick field or expose them to potential severe weather, we have opted to go indoors. Unfortunately, because of severe space limitations, that means our credentialed media will not be able to attend the practice. We are sorry for this inconvenience.”

Practice times will remain as scheduled:

North 12:30 pm-2:30 pm
South 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

They are closed to media and the public on Wednesday.

Thursday Practices return to Ladd-Peebles Stadium
12:30 pm – 2:30 pm (North)
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm (South)

* Practices Open To Public Thursday at Ladd-Peebles Stadium

The Rams return to the Super Bowl in only HC Sean McVay’s second season after 12 consecutive non-playoff appearances. It is the Rams’ fourth appearance in the SB. On Sunday, they fought back twice to tie the Saints and won in overtime on a 57 yard game winning FG by Greg Zuerlein. It was the longest FG in NFL Postseason history.

The Patriots go to their third consecutive Super Bowl and 11th overall in history and the 9th between HC Bill Belichick and Pro Bowl QB Tom Brady tenure. They won this time on one their patented long drives including the game winning drive in overtime after winning the coin toss. Brady outbattled young Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes in a postseason classic with the Patriots prevailing in the end.

We will have our Super Bowl LIII matchup story prior to the event.

Declared Underclassmen for the NFL Draft 2019

Declared Underclassmen – NFL Draft 2019

The declaration date for underclassmen for the NFL Draft 2019 came at 4 pm Jan. 15th – Players have an additional three days to decide to either declare or change their minds with the Jan. 18th date final. No player rescinded their decision last year. The NFL office will announce the official Underclassmen list on Friday, Jan. 18th.

The usual high number of quality running backs, tight ends and wide receivers declared for this class and will have a strong impact on the early rounds. The defensive line will have a big impact from the underclassmen group with several potential first round prospects. The line and edge rushers will provide a high number of top selections with several blue-chip prospects at important positions. With the rookie salary cap reduced for the upcoming seasons, this class surpassed every group of third year players entering the pro ranks. Currently, they are over 130 underclassmen expected to enter the NFL Draft 2019.

In 2018, there were a record 106 players granted special early eligibility with the previous record for early entrants at 98 in the 2014 NFL Draft. Each of the players granted special eligibility has met the league’s three-year eligibility rule and each has submitted a written application in which he renounced his remaining college football eligibility.
