2015 Senior Bowl: Day Three Updates

  • Kansas State wide-receiver Tyler Lockett has impressed scouts in the South team practice. He beat his defender on three consecutive plays going down the field against three different cornerbacks.
  • University of Miami cornerback LaDarius Gunter has also impressed scouts. He’s 6’1″ and 200 pounds. It will be interesting to see his measurables at the combine and/or his pro day.
  • Tennessee Titans head coach and North head coach Ken Whisenhunt says the players are being put through practices that are similar to Organized Team Activities (OTAs) on the professional level. “We get to see how they react to the meetings, to NFL practice, individual drills and one-on-one competition, ” Whisenhunt said. “We’re very sensitive to the fact this is the first chance that (the players) get to be around pro coaches. We think it’s important — not only are we evaluating them but also helping them prepare for a couple of pretty important things coming up like the combine and workouts.”
  • Jacksonville Jaguars head coach and South head coach Gus Bradley said he’s putting his team through a whole week’s practice. “The NFL is a race to maturity. You’re trying to get this guys who come in as rookies and play like they’re a sixth-year veteran,” Bradley said at last night’s press conference.
  • The New York Giants have met with wide receivers Devin Smith (Ohio State), Sammie Coates (Auburn), defensive tackle Danny Shelton (Washington), defensive end Lynden Trail (Norfolk State), tight end Clive Walford (Miami) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (Samford).
  • Auburn’s Cameron Artis-Payne was the SEC’s leading rusher in 2014 and the running back has shown scouts he can catch passes out of the backfield. He was one of the more consistent players in the 7-on-7 drills.
  • Auburn’s Nick Marshall got turned around by Fresno State’s Josh Harper and Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett. He’s transitioning to cornerback from QB. Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said, “I know we haven’t had a chance to work on that. Some things come really natural to him. It’s a little bit of work in progress but I love his competitiveness and how he’s attacking it.”
