2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl Practice Report: North Team

Action is underway in Mobile for the 2020 Reese's Senior Bowl. PFN has you covered all week with practice reports updated each day for the North team.

DT McTelvin Agim, Arkansas

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayTeam InterestsAnalysis
Height: 6-2 5/8″
Weight: 307
Arm: 33 3/4″
Hand: 10″
Agim showed good quickness off the ball as well as strong hands. He was one of the few defensive linemen to get any push against Ben Bredeson. Struggled with his balance at times.

DT Darrion Daniels, Nebraska

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 1/2″
Weight: 322
Arm: 33 1/2″
Hand: 9″
Daniels was very subpar. Didn’t do anything to damage his stock, but didn’t do anything to improve it. Was very quiet overall, and was not a real factor in 1on1s.
Daniels was much better today. He was able to win some 1v1s and improve his stock overall. Now he must take this positive into tomorrow.
Daniels continued to improve. He played with power and some finesse in 1v1s, and was strong in team play. Good practice to wrap up his week.
A nice surprise, Daniels didn’t blow me away this week, but I was pleasantly surprised with some of the traits I saw. He had a better week in Mobile than I would have expected from him, and he will get a draftable grade from me.

DT Neville Gallimore, Oklahoma

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2″
Weight: 304
Arm: 32 7/8″
Hand: 10″
Of guys not named Javon Kinlaw, Gallimore was the best of the bunch. He was consistently making plays in the backfield during team drills and was unblockable in 1on1s.
Gallimore establishes himself as comfortably the best defensive lineman behind Kinlaw. He has been completely unblockable and established himself as a legitimate first round prospect.
Gallimore was inconsistent on the day. Had some “wow” reps in 1v1s when his pad level was good and he was using his elite athletic ability. However, when he played high he was easily neutralized. Thursday could have been better.
Canadian Bacon (Gallimore) had about the week I expect him to have. He has elite upside with his athletic ability, but he plays high and is raw as a pass rusher. Luckily when interviewing him, he made it clear he understood his weakness and was actively working on fixing them. Gallimore could be a really good player in the near future.

DT DaVon Hamilton, Ohio State

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 3/4″
Weight: 327
Arm: 32 7/8″
Hand: 9 7/8″
Hamilton has the best hands in the class. His ability to shed blockers is elite, and he does it at 327. Which leads you to believe he could develop into a strong run defender. Hamilton was unblockable in 1on1s and he’s boosted his draft stock.
Today, Hamilton tried to expand his game and start utilizing a bull-rush, successfully. He’s well regarded as a hand fighter and wins with finesse. However, his frame at 317 would lead you to believe he has room to be a strong power rusher.
Hamilton wrapped up an awesome week with an excellent Thursday. Constantly in the back field using both his hands and strength. His bull rush has developed nicely all week and it was in full form Thursday.
Davon Hamilton came in and improved his stock because he showed growth every day. He weighed in at 327, not what you’d expect from someone who plays like him. Hamilton is known as en elite hand fighter who rushes the passer with finesse from the interior. However, over the week, Hamilton started to use his weight and muscle and implemented a bull rush in his apss rush plan. He is likely a top 50 player for me

DT Larrell Murchison, NC State

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 3/8″
Weight: 294
Arm: 32 7/8″
Hand: 10 1/8″
Murchison struggled to make an impression today. Build looked sloppy during weigh in and he was not impressive at practice.
One of the best days of the group. Murchison was nearly unguardable in 1v1’s and had a highlight spin-move on highly regarded Washington center Nick Harris.
One of my top risers this week. Murchison has been much better than I expected. His Thursday was solid and his draft stock has absolutely risen this week.
Murchinson was an unknown for me and he was excellent. He displayed a wide arsenal of pass rush moves and was one of the brighter stars in a loaded IDL group. Murchinson’s stock comfortably grew due to his week in Mobile. He’s a fun player, and you should check out some of his highlights from the week over on my OL vs DL 1v1 thread.

DE Carter Coughlin, Minnesota

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 1/4″
Weight: 234
Arm: 31 1/4″
Hand: 9 1/4″
Coughlin was active in drills, but did not make a consistent impact down in and down out. Not a positive sign considering he weighed in very lightly today. I have a hard time projected where Carter fits in an NFL defense.
Coughlin appears limited athletically and has struggled to make much of an impact in practice through two days.
Coughlin wasn’t effective off the edge and didn’t show much power as a pass rusher Thursday. He did show the flexibility to dip under blocks on twists and stunts, but he’ll likely be reliant on schemed blitzes to create pressure at the next level.
 Tripodi: After weighing in the mid-230s, Coughlin needed to show standout athleticism during his time in Mobile. He was unable to do so in drills or scrimmage, and he didn’t show much power off the edge either. Coughlin has some flexibility to dip around blocks and showed good patience and awareness on twists and stunts, but his struggles in Mobile make it unlikely he becomes an impact player at the NFL level. Valdovinos: I have some serious concerns with Carter Coughlin’s NFL future, specifically as an edge rusher. He was very lean at weigh ins, and tackles were able to stop him in his tracks for nearly the entire week. I said this earlier in the week, but a move to linebacker should be in his future.

EDGE Bradlee Anae, Utah

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 3/8″
Weight: 257
Arm: 31 7/8″
Hand: 9 1/2″
Anae struggled to make an impact, which was very concerning given his talent. Some thought that a big week from Anae could push him into the top 50, unfortunately that plan is off to a rough start.
Anae was much better today. He showed off his physical abilities, and was more impactful in pass rush situations. His ability is evident and I hope he has a strong day tomorrow.
Anae’s explosion off the line of scrimmage is awesome. He constantly wins off the ball and he feasted on the tackles today. He’s a legitimate top top talent, and he showed why on Thursday.
Off the ball, Anae may have had the fastest get off in Mobile. He was constantly in the back field before tackles could touch him. He also displayed a level of hand fighting I didn’t priorly realize he had. Strong player had a strong week. Expect Bradley Anae to be drafted somewhere between 25 and 45.

EDGE Trevon Hill, Miami

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3″
Weight: 233
Arm: 32 3/8″
Hand: 9 1/8″
Trevon Hill is a sleeper prospect I am a huge fan of. He has elite physical traits and he uses them well. He’s got great length, explosion, and acceleration.
Hill struggled against some of the top talent here, but he’s abusing the lesser talent. This tells me that he’s not as developed with his technique, but he can rely on his athletic ability to win match-ups.
Hill has some of the top physical traits among any edge rusher here. He still needs to work on developing a pass rush plan, but he showed signed off improvement in this last practice. Good day for Hill.
Here’s one guy I’ve been higher on compared to the consensus. I really love the physical upside of Trevon Hill. He displayed elite bend and burst off the edge, and even tried to vary his pass rush later in the week. If a quality NFL coach can get his hands on Hill, he may be a steal on Day 3 of the draft. Good week for Hill.

EDGE Alton Robinson, Syracuse

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3″
Weight: 259
Arm: 32 1/8″
Hand: 9 1/8″
Robinson really struggled, and I’m not sure any defensive lineman has seen their stock plummet as badly as Robinson’s has since the start of this season.
Robinson continued to struggle. His draft stock is taking a nosedive.
As he has all week, Robinson did nothing to move the needle and was virtually a non-factor.
Maybe the worst player I saw this week, Alton Robinson will leave Mobile with a UDFA grade from me. He didn’t show any traits of an NFL player, and I question if he ever will. He constantly made the same mistakes in reps, and doesn’t have the elite athletic profile to warrant a draft selection. Bad week.

EDGE Jason Strowbridge, North Carolina

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-4 1/4″
Weight: 267
Arm: 32 7/8″
Hand: 9 7/8″
Strowbridge is someone who I wasn’t familiar with coming into the week. However, he measured in excellently and shows a wide arange of pass rusher moves. Strowbridge is a riser for the draft.
Strowbridge showed a bit more finesse winning on the outside today, something I desperately wanted to see. He lost a 1v1 vs Josh Jones pretty brutally, but other wise he was excellent.
One of my favorite players to watch this week, Strowbridge was absolutely unblockable. His hands were active and his hips were flexible. He does have some refinement to be had before he’s an every down player. However his frae and athletic ability lead me to believe he can be a strong player in the NFL. He’s the first player I’ll be evaluating when I return home from Mobile.

EDGE Joshua Uche, Michigan

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-1 3/8″
Weight: 241
Arm: 33 1/4″
Hand: 9 1/2″
Joshua Uche was someone I really liked, but he didn’t make much noise today. Hoping for a better outing tomorrow, as he has a ton to prove.
Uche was extremely impressive in Wednesday’s practice, showing very good quickness off the snap and great flexibility to dip around the edge. He countered offensive linemen who were preparing for his outside rush with good inside counter moves and acquitted himself very well when asked to play in space.
Uche continued to impress Thursday, this time with his versatility. In addition to his skill rushing the passer and improving comfort in space, Uche showed the ability to scrape laterally and get to the ball when used at middle linebacker.
Tripodi: Uche’s week in Mobile was extremely impressive. He displayed excellent versatility and acquitted himself in space better than most expected. Uche’s quickness off the snap and flexibility around the edge are assets as a pass rusher, and he showed ability when lined up at middle linebacker as well. An excellent week for Uche, who heads towards the draft as a prospect on the rise. Valdovinos: A favorite of mine over recent weeks, I was very pleased with the play of Josh Uche this week. He displayed both the ability to rush the passer, but was also smooth and competent in coverage. Uche is perfect for the SAM position, but he’s not limited to any one scheme. Very good player who had a very good week.

EDGE Kenny Willekes, Michigan State

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 3/4″
Weight: 252
Arm: 31 1/4″
Hand: 9 3/4″
Willekes was a big disappointment at weigh-ins, but did an excellent job in 1on1s and team drills.
Willekes continues to dominate 1v1s, and is doing everything he can to keep the weigh-ins from impacting his stock. Great player and a vocal leader on the sidelines. If he falls to Day 3, a team is getting an absolute steal.
Willekes continued to dominate off the edge in 1v1 situations. He’s a better player than people realize, and he had a strong ending to the week.
Willekes was constantly chirping on the sidelines, hyping his players up, running down the ball, and really just doing Kenny Willekes things. He’s a gritty player who won’t ever be the best athlete on the field, but you can believe he’ll be the hardest working. Willekes demonstrated quality speed off the edge and will be a plug and play starter for an NFL team. The only question will be his upside. He had a strong week.

OLB Zack Baun, Wisconsin

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 1/2″
Weight: 240
Arm: 32 1/8″
Hand: 9 5/8″
Baun has been practicing both as an edge rusher and off ball linebacker. In his short time at edge, Baun dominated.
Like he did Tuesday, Baun struggled in space and in coverage Wednesday, as he was slow to pick up coverage assignments and showed a tendency to stop his feet. He also displayed minimal strength when engaged in blocks and was often overpowered by opposing linemen.
Baun had a nondescript Thursday practice, which was an improvement over his first two days. He did show off a nice spin move to beat Matt Peart to the inside during one-on-ones.
Baun has some skills as a pass rusher with a nice array of moves to get free, but his lack of size and strength is a problem once engaged in blocks. Baun also had issues moving in space and picking up coverage assignments and needs to improve his technique if he wants to be anything more than a third-down pass rusher at the next level.

ILB Francis Bernard, Utah

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-0 1/2″
Weight: 230
Arm: 31 5/8″
Hand: 9 5/8″
Bernard was rather non-descript and really did not stand out.  He did not show the patented or expected athleticism he’s displayed on film.  I was told last night don’t expect Bernard to run raster than the high 4.7s (4.77s) during Combine workouts.
Bernard had an up-and-down day of practice, as he was a beat slow to read plays and react to them and needs to break down better when tackling in the open field. He did display the ability to shed blocks and run to the ball to make plays, and he was very active before the snap moving his defensive linemen around.
Bernard’s athleticism was not as advertised in Mobile, and he also struggled to shed blockers. He found himself stuck on blocks too often once engaged and often resorted to picking a side of blockers to attack as a result, which created open lanes for opposing running backs.
Bernard entered the week as a player with something to prove, and unfortunately, he wasn’t able to answer the bell. His athleticism was subpar, a trend that is expected to continue at the combine in February, and he struggled to shed blocks against bigger opponents. Bernard was also a beat slow to recognize plays and must improve his footwork in the open field to finish plays.

ILB Malik Harrison, Ohio State

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 5/8″
Weight: 246
Arm: 32 7/8″
Hand: 9 7/8″
Harrison showed good athleticism, moved well in space and showed power and strength as a blitzer.
Harrison was one of the better linebackers for the North on Wednesday. He showed the athleticism to stay with running backs and tight ends in coverage, the awareness to quickly pick up assignments and the ability to work through the trash and get outside the numbers to make plays on ball carriers.
Harrison was the best linebacker on the field for the North on Thursday. He is an excellent athlete and showed good awareness in coverage and made a one-handed interception 15-20 yards down the field during scrimmage. Harrison was also quick to read and react to plays and did a nice job filling rushing lanes.
Harrison is powerful and athletic in all aspects of the linebacker position. He’s strong and powerful on the blitz, shows the ability to cover tight ends and running backs and quickly recognizes plays before coming downhill to fill the gaps. Harrison also had one of the highlights of the week with a one-handed interception 20 yards down the middle of the field during scrimmage on Thursday and leaves Mobile a big winner.

ILB Evan Weaver, California

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 1/8″
Weight: 234
Arm: 32 3/8″
Hand: 9 3/8″
Weaver showed the ability to smoothly flip his hips in drills, but lost connection in coverage against running backs and even lost his footing on occasion. He showed the ability to get to outside runs and chase down ball carriers.
Weaver’s weaknesses were on full display Wednesday, as he couldn’t keep up with the North’s quicker running backs and found himself in no-man’s land at times in coverage. He also continued to play aggressively downhill and willingly took on blocks and shed to make plays in the running game.
Weaver again had issues in coverage, but he also had issues against the run as well Thursday. He showed stiffness and was flat-footed out of opponents’ route breaks. He also found himself washed out of multiple running plays.
Weaver started well during Tuesday’s practice, but he really struggled on the final two days. His coverage deficiencies were exposed, as he looked confused at times and struggled to stay with quicker running backs. Weaver’s aggressiveness against the run waned as the week went on as well, as he seemed to lose confidence as a result of his struggles in the passing game.

LB Logan Wilson, Wyoming

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 1/8″
Weight: 241
Arm: 32″
Hand: 9 1/8″
Wilson displayed solid movement skills in drills and an ability to get outside the numbers but was nondescript during the scrimmage.
Wilson showed good athleticism Wednesday and also looked good in coverage. He did a nice job getting depth on pass drops and showed the ability to get to the sidelines and pick up running backs in the flat.
Wilson was impressive in coverage and did a nice job staying with his coverage assignments on play-action passes and RPOs. He displayed good skills in scrimmage and came down with a nice interception in the middle of the field after getting good depth on his drop.
Wilson was one of the bigger linebackers on the North squad, but he also showed himself to be a good athlete with ability in space. He has the speed to get outside the numbers and pick up running backs in the flat and did a nice job sticking with his keys. He also flashed ball skills with an impressive interception during Thursday’s practice.

CB Essang Bassey, Wake Forest

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-9 3/8″
Weight: 191
Arm: 31″
Hand: 7 7/8″
Bassey was one of many DBs who simply struggled in almost every facet today. Both KJ Hill and Michael Pittman made him look silly in reps. After coming in at only 5’9, Bassey needed to show he could keep up with the taller corners, and he simply looked lost out there. Was simply a day to forget, and Bassey needs to rebound.
Bassey has struggled massively in both practices, and his Wednesday practice was the worst I’ve ever seen him play. He was repeatedly beat in coverage by every receiver he lined up against. Antonio Gandy-Golden, who is by no means a fast player, beat him badly on a simple Go route deep. The Senior Bowl practices have not helped Bassey’s stock at all.
Another terrible day for Bassey, who has simply been a letdown during Senior Bowl practices. He’s struggled to stay with any receivers and he hasn’t been making plays on the ball. The Senior Bowl has left a sour taste for many on Bassey.
Essang Bassey…struggled. Not sure just how much I can emphasize how poor of a week he had, but he was dominated on virtually every rep and looked lost more often than not. It was a week that had many shaking their heads at his play.

CB Lamar Jackson, Nebraska

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-2 1/4″
Weight: 206
Arm: 32 1/8″
Hand: 9 5/8″
Out of everyone I watched today, Lamar Jackson was most definitely the worst player today. Heard he might have been injured, but his tape wasn’t stellar either. I didn’t see a quality rep from him today, whether he was in press or off coverage. Jackson was simply forgettable and will need to be better moving forward.
Jackson had a better day today than he did on Tuesday. He wasn’t perfect in coverage, but he wasn’t getting routinely demolished like he was yesterday. Would like to see him make more plays on the ball on Thursday’s practice, but him just sticking with his receiver more would be an improvement.
It was suggested that this Lamar Jackson move to wide receiver instead of corner, and honestly it isn’t a half-bad idea. Jackson has struggled all week long and it didn’t get any better on Thursday.
It was suggested that this Lamar Jackson move to wide receiver instead of corner, and honestly it isn’t a half-bad idea after how bad he played this week. He has traits to succeed but has no idea how to use them still. It was a poor week all around for a player I wasn’t particularly high on coming into this week.

CB Michael Ojemudia, Iowa

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-0 1/4″
Weight: 199
Arm: 32 1/8″
Hand: 9″
Ojemudia flashed quality reps and looked like one of the few quality DBs the North offered up today. He flashed physicality and fought through contact and the hands of every receiver he lined up against, which was encouraging to see. He was sticky in coverage all day. Encouraging and promising first day for Ojemudia.
Ojemudia was the best CB for the day in the North’s practices. He was sticking like glue in coverage and used his physicality well without being flagged. He came up just short of two turnovers in drills but his playmaking definitely stood out on a pretty lackluster North practice Wednesday. He got burned by Baylor’s Denzel Mims, but there wasn’t much he could do as it was a pretty perfect throw and catch. A name to keep an eye on tomorrow and moving forward with his continued high level of play.
A somewhat down day by Ojemudia compared to his last couple of performances. He got blown up by Denzel Mims but that was the only serious “negative” I would give him on the day. He just didn’t make enough plays that I noticed to warrant an overly positive grade.
Ojemudia was a player I’m excited to go back to his tape on. He showed better athleticism in Mobile than I thought he had on his tape. He was physical and made plays in coverage on the first two days and made a case to be the best DB on the North team in practice. With his measurements, he looks like a mid-round developmental corner that can play outside with further refinement.

CB Troy Pride Jr, Notre Dame

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-11 3/8″
Weight: 193
Arm: 31 3/8″
Hand: 8 3/8″
Pride was the best DB on the North team all day. He was sticky in coverage against every wide receiver and re-routed several receivers he lined up against. He was chirpy and physical and really impressed today. His tape showed a great athletic profile and Pride showcased that profile to the highest today in drills. A really, really strong day for Pride moving forward.
Yesterday, Pride was the best CB on the field and Ojemudia was the 2nd best. Today, Pride was the second best while Ojemudia took the cake at the top. Pride made some great plays in coverage, recording an INT over Quartney Davis and ripping the ball out of Michael Pittman’s hands for a PBU. He was just as sticky in coverage as he was yesterday, and it’s been a performance that has had me itching to go back to his tape.
This was the worst of Pride’s performances, showing far more inconsistency than I would have liked to close out the week’s practices. His strong week shouldn’t be discounted at all, Thursday’s practices just had more negative reps than the last two days did.
Pride was was particularly stout in coverage for the majority of the week and made play after play on the ball. His second day was particularly impressive, and with his rumored testing numbers, Pride can make this an outstanding offseason for his draft stock.

DB Terrell Burgess, Utah

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-11 3/8″
Weight: 192
Arm: 30″
Hand: 9 1/4″
Burgess was lined up as an outside corner instead of a safety in drills and didn’t really impress in any way. He didn’t get burned consistently but never really flashed a ton in drills. He should go back to safety going forward.
I thought Burgess was pretty solid today in coverage, rebounding from an off day on Tuesday. Burgess projects well as a nickel at the next level and certainly showed he could play there in drills today. He had a bad rep against KJ Hill on an in-route, but that was the only real negative play I noticed from him on Wednesday.
Another good day from Terrell Burgess in coverage. Burgess did a good job keeping up in coverage today and showed that he could stick in well and start as a nickel corner at the next level. Been a good showing for him in Mobile, continuing a strong 2019 season.
Burgess started off slow this week but knocked off the rest to churn out two quality performances on Day 2 and Day 3. He looks like he can start right away as a nickel corner at the next level with his smoothness in coverage and his high IQ. I loved his tape coming in and thought his practices reflected that tape.

S Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-3 1/8″
Weight: 219
Arm: 32″
Hand: 9 1/2″
Coming from Southern Illinois, there were plenty of questions about Chinn adjusting to the speed of the NFL, but he looked like he belonged today. He came in at 6’3 220 lbs with no really bad weight and looked great in coverage drills. His technique was still a work in progress but he flashed elite physical tools and checked the box off of man coverage ability today in drills.
Chinn has been one of the most impressive players here in Mobile for either squad. At 6’3 220, I wasn’t expecting him to be as fluid in coverage as he is, but Chinn moves like a 5’11 cornerback out there in the secondary. He’s been utterly fantastic-no other way I can say it.
I was not impressed by Chinn at all today. He allowed just too many receptions and got blown by in coverage a little more than I would have liked. After playing well on Wednesday, Chinn fell back to Earth today. Tough showing with his physical skill set.
Chinn had a pretty “meh” last day but he proved he belonged with the big-school names out there. His physical traits alone are particularly impressive, and he looks like a top developmental prospect in rounds 3-4.

S Jalen Elliott, Notre Dame

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 6-0 1/2″
Weight: 205
Arm: 32″
Hand: 9 1/8″
Elliott was probably the second best safety today but that isn’t saying much. He flashed ability in coverage and looked solid but unremarkable in drills. Was leading the huddle consistently.
I didn’t see too many standout reps from Elliott today compared to yesterday, which was rather disappointing for me. Elliott needs to flash more in an overall lackluster safety group, which I hope he does to close out practices on Thursday. I do know that it was reported Elliott met with the Pittsburgh Steelers already down in Mobile.
Jalen Elliott was voted the North team DB of the week, and while I do disagree with that, it was hard to argue against Elliott having the best overall performance of the safety group this week. He was solid in coverage all day long on Thursday. There’s been a lot of buzz about him this week.
Jalen Elliott is a player whose tape I’m making an emphasis on getting back around to as his Senior Bowl practices were simply outstanding. Elliott was voted the North team DB of the week, which says a lot about how he led his teammates out there. He led the huddle and played with intensity and energy. Made a fan out of me this week.

S Alohi Gilman, Notre Dame

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-10 5/8″
Weight: 202
Arm: 31 5/8″
Hand: 9″
I thought Gilman had a solid day of practice to start. His tape suggested a player who was strictly a box safety at the next level but his practice changed my opinion a little bit.
Gilman did get hurt during practice Wednesday, coming up limping after Denzel Mims beat him on a contested catch. Will be interesting to see if he shuts it down after the injury or tries to rebound on Thursday.
Alohi Gilman proved he could cover better than I thought he would in practice all week. Been a pleasant surprise all week.
I’m making an amendment to not underestimate Notre Dame players in practice. When watching live, I was not a fan of Gilman’s reps, but the more I got into his film, I saw him make plays in coverage and looked better than I would have imagined he would coming into the week. I’m excited to get back to his tape.

S Khaleke Hudson, Michigan

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-11 1/8″
Weight: 218
Arm: 30″
Hand: 10″
Khaleke Hudson looked JACKED at the weigh-ins and had everyone really excited about his physical profile today. He looked really smooth in coverage drills. I don’t know if he’ll go to LB or safety at the next level, but he proved he could cover RBs and TEs.
Hudson had another phenomenal day today in practice. He was explosive and flying around all day. He undercut a throw for a PBU that came ever so close to being a phenomenal interception. His jump on the ball had many scouts beside me applauding and then groaning when the ball hit the turf. Been a great few days for Hudson’s draft stock.
Another great day from Hudson today, showing off great coverage skills in drills and flew around the football field. I admittedly wasn’t super high on Hudson coming into Mobile, but I can’t wait to get back to his tape afterwards. His Senior Bowl week has been outstanding.
Hudson’s Senior Bowl week has been outstanding. He weighed in with good numbers and his week never came down from there. He flew around in coverage and kept making plays in every drill. For a stud athlete coming from a pretty big school, the lack of buzz coming into Mobile was pretty surprising. But, it’s safe to say he’ll have plenty of it leaving Mobile.

S Josh Metellus, Michigan

MeasurablesTuesdayWednesdayThursdayAnalysis
Height: 5-11 1/8″
Weight: 210
Arm: 32 1/8″
Hand: 10 1/8″
To let you know how Metellus did, it took me ten minutes to remember a single rep he had. It wasn’t a memorable day for Metellus. I wasn’t a big fan of his tape coming in and his first day in practice didn’t move the needle at all.
Another pretty unremarkable day from Metellus in Wednesday’s practice. He’ll show up in the highlight reels but of other players. KJ Hill beat him pretty bad on an out route in team drills and he failed to recover quick enough to make a play. Hasn’t done anything positive for his draft stock in live practices.
Another rough outing for Josh Metellus whose only highlight reel level play was one that will show up on KJ Hill’s highlight reel. His stock wasn’t all that high coming into the event and it’s stayed down after his performances this week in practice.
Josh Metellus had a terrible week of practice. He fed KJ Hill’s draft stock by giving up numerous plays to him while in coverage, but that was the only positive I had for him all week. Was a complete contrast to his Michigan teammate Khaleke Hudson, and an overall pretty forgettable week from Metellus. Not sure his draft stock is even Day 3-worthy.
