I want to put a different spin on this report. Weather made for an exciting, active day today in Mobile. It started last night when practices were announced as moving to the USA Indoor practice facility which meant no room for the media corps. Then the annual weigh-in was held this A.M., but the media could not attend that event. The storm clouds cleared a bit and we were allowed to attend practices in the stadium this afternoon. But for now I want to focus on some significant prospect information that ties in to the Senior Bowl. DANIEL JEREMIAH, from NFL Network, has released his first list of his Top 50 prospects for the 2021 NFL Draft. No doubt some of his current projections will change, but I thought it significant to match up his Top 50, with the Senior Bowl rosters. Nobody is perfect, but D.J.is near the top of the heap with his Draft projections each year.
Here is the list of Top 50 players from Jeremiah, who are on the Senior Bowl rosters.
DeVonta Smith/WR Alabama DJ#7 (inactive with finger injury, but in Mobile)
Kadarius Toney/WR Florida DJ #20
Najee Harris/RB Alabama DJ #22
Levi Onwuzurike/DT Washington DJ #23
Mac Jones/QB Alabama DJ #33
Aaron Robinson/CB UCF DJ #39
Patrick Jones/DE Pitt DJ #42
Landon Dickerson/OC Alabama DJ #44
Marlon Tuipulotu/DT Southern Cal DJ #45
James Hudson/OL Cincinnati DJ #46
Dillon Radunz/OT N. Dakota St DJ #48
Dayo Odeyingbo/DE Vanderbilt DJ #50 (Achilles injury last week, not in Mobile )
That is 12 of his 50 top players in the game. Keep in mind that the Senior Bowl cannot invite non-graduated, underclassmen to the their game. The majority of other players on DJ’s list are underclassmen who cannot be in Mobile this week for the game. Just thought some of you might find this info interesting while I sort thru some of what transpired here in Mobile.
Cheers from Mobile.
