Live from the 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl: Wednesday Practice Observations

The second day of 2020 Senior Bowl practice gets underway on Wednesday at 1:30 pm ET and PFN has all of the action covered with several draft analysts, including Tony Pauline, on-site in Mobile.

Yesterday in Mobile at the 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the action finally moved from interviews and weigh-ins to the field at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The North and South squads took the field for the first day of practice. But today, the intensity goes up a notch as practice sessions get longer. And as we did yesterday, Pro Football Network has you covered with several analysts and reports on the ground.

PFN Draft Analyst and Insider Tony Pauline leads our coverage and will be joined by PFN draft analysts Matt Valdovinos, AJ Schulte, and Chris Spooner. In addition, PFN NFL Insider Benjamin Allbright and PFN contributors Cole Thompson, Bill Riccette, and Tommy Call are all in Mobile as well to bring you the latest news and notes.

The first practice of the day gets underway today at 1:30 pm ET when the North team, led by quarterback Jordan Love, takes the field at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. That will be followed by the quarterback Justin Herbert and the South team at 4 pm ET. Our live practice observations will get underway just before 1:30 pm ET.

Live observations from Wednesday’s 2020 Senior Bowl Practice

5:45 ET: Stephen Sullivan from LSU is basically a receiver and he’s looked uncoverable in drills.

5:45 ET: Robert Windsor is gonna be a name to watch I think as the process goes along. -Bill Riccette

5:42 ET: Safety Kyle Duggar Lenoir Rhyne is having a really good practice. Another small school DB drawing rave reviews from scouts at the Senior Bowl. – Tony Pauline

5:40 ET: Montez overthrew Antonio Gipson on a dump-off that had the scouts in front of me laughing. – AJ Schulte

5:39 ET: Austin Mack still sticking with the finishing issues today. Ironically, nothing else is sticking to him. – AJ Schulte

5:38 ET: Van Jefferson just “Moss’d” K’Von Wallace on the sideline. Man, blown away by him so far. – AJ Schulte

5:31 ET: Van Jefferson’s play is a thing of beauty. – Bill Riccette

5:31 ET: I’ve been focusing mainly on WRs and DBs but man Oregon QB Justin Herbert has just killed it in peripheral. Throws are on time and placed well. Ball’s jumping out of his hands. – AJ Schulte

5:26 ET: Nobody so far has been able to cover (OSU WR) KJ Hill, (Florida WR) Van Jefferson, or (Texas WR) Collin Johnson. – AJ Schulte

5:20 ET: Clemson S K’Von Wallace with a nice INT of Colorado QB Steven Montez…but Montez gave him a nice gift. – AJ Schulte

5:19 ET: Arizona State RB Eno Benjamin is having another sensational practice. Looked terrific in blocking drills. – Tony Pauline

5:16 ET: LSU TE Stephen Sullivan has looked terrific in all aspects, as a blocker and pass catcher. – Tony Pauline

5:15 ET: Appalachian State LB Akeem Davis-Gaither is having a terrific practice this afternoon. Very athletic and super quick. – Tony Pauline

5:09 ET: 2v2 and (South Carolina DT) Javon Kinlaw consumes the double team. – Matt Valdovinos

5:00 ET: (Florida WR) Van Jefferson vs (UCLA CB) Darnay Holmes is must-see TV. – AJ Schulte

4:58 ET: Did they throw enough flags on that (Tennessee WR) Jauan Jennings rep? – Bill Riccette

4:57 ET: I think a friendly rivalry is brewing between Florida WR Van Jefferson and UCLA CB Darnay Holmes. – Bill Riccette

4:49 ET: Interested to see how they move Penn State LB Cam Brown around. Brown has seen drill reps across the board at linebacker. Moved around at Penn State, told me he was feeling really comfortable as last season wore on dropping into coverage. – Bill Riccette

4:40 ET: Georgia QB Jake Fromm just rolled into the Senior Bowl. Chilling in the stands. – Matt Valdovinos

4:25 ET: (referring to Auburn DT Marlon Davidson) Tough break for a player who had a great practice Tuesday afternoon. – Chris Tripodi

4:25 ET: Auburn DT Marlon Davidson is walking around the afternoon practice at the Senior Bowl with a boot on his right foot. – Tony Pauline

4:21 ET: Auburn DT Marlon Davidson in a walking boot and not practicing. – Bill Riccette

3:25 pm ET: Texas A&M WR Quartney Davis met with the Arizona Cardinals following today’s practice. – Cole Thompson

3:10 pm ET: Michigan EDGE Josh Uche with an impressive rep against Charlie Heck. He won with speed and bend outside last time. This time he uses the inside counter. Uche is an intelligent pass rusher. – Matt Valdovinos

3:05 pm ET: WR Denzel Mims is tearing it up in practice today. Will skyrocket up draft boards with good combine/pro day workouts. – Tony Pauline

3:02 pm ET: Utah State QB Jordan Love is having another big day. He’s been on the mark throw after throw. Good decision making, too. – Tony Pauline

3:00 pm ET: Great rep by OT Josh Jones just now, showing off his athletic ability and then riding Trevon Hill around the arc before finishing the block. – Matt Valdovinos

2:59 pm ET: Denzel Mims with a phenomenal grab on the sideline…of course. He has one or two of those each game. – AJ Schulte

2:57 pm ET: WR Antonio Gandy-Golden toasted CB Essang Bassey again…and then dropped the pass from Anthony Gordon. – AJ Schulte

2:56 pm ET: EDGE/LB Josh Uche of Michigan looks really good in all facets today. – Tony Pauline

2:54 pm ET: Notre Dame CB Troy Pride continuing a strong week so far in Mobile. He made a great pass break-up fighting through contact and almost had the pick. – AJ Schulte

2:53 pm ET: SMU WR James Proche has quietly had a productive day for the North receivers. He just made a great catch in double coverage…and one of the very few for the North squad today. – Cole Thompson

2:51 pm ET: Michigan State EDGE Kenny Willekes’ stock likely drops this week due to weigh-ins. But he’s been outstanding in pass rush reps and has been a vocal leader. – Matt Valdovinos

2:31 pm ET: Wake Forest OT Justin Herron is having a much better practice at today. Outstanding in motion. – Tony Pauline

2:29 pm ET: North Carolina DL Jason Strowbridge has FEASTED in one-on-one’s so far. He’s been an eye-opener; I’m very excited to get to his film. – Matt Valdovinos

2:26 pm ET: Kansas OT Hakeem Adeniji with a GREAT punch to stop Neville Gallimore’s initial rush. Great rep. The North OL winning the day so far. – Matt Valdovinos

2:24 pm ET: Denzel Mims has been unstoppable this morning. They’ve resorted to holding Mims, but he still catches everything; such a big, athletic receiver. – Tony Pauline

2:21 pm ET: Wake Forest CB Essang Bassey is having it rough. Was just roasted deep by Antonio Gandy-Golden…who is by no means a deep threat. – AJ Schulte

2:20 pm ET: Liberty WR Antonio Gandy-Golden is having a day, especially when Jordan Love is throwing him the football. – Tommy Call

2:15 pm ET: KJ Hill picking up where he left off yesterday. – AJ Schulte

2:11 pm ET: Dayton TE Adam Trautman is having another strong day. He runs good routes and exits them with good speed. – Tony Pauline

2:00 pm ET: North Carolina DL Jason Strowbridge looks insanely athletic in drills for a big man. He moved through the cones like he was a safety. – Tony Pauline

1:38 pm ET: Auburn CB Javaris Davis, who was disallowed from participating in the Shrine Game last week after the school failed to place him in concussion protocol, was added to the North roster here at the Senior Bowl. – Tony Pauline
