Senior (Bowl) Superlatives
January 30, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl
Tallest Player: DE Margus Hunt-
-Measuring at over 6'8" Hunt took the prize here.
Shortest Player: RB Robbie Rouse-
-Coming in at 5'5" 7/8 Rouse was the shortest player on the field, which at times helped him as it appeared defenders couldn't find him.
Heaviest Player: DT John Jenkins-
-Jenkins weighed in at 359 lbs, but actually carries it pretty well. It is easy to see why 3-4 teams would love to have him as their NT
Lightest Player: WR Marquise Goodwin
-Goodwin came in at 179 lbs, which is a little light for a receiver. Good news is he didn't struggle too much versus the press.
First Player Selected: OT Eric Fisher-
-Fisher all but solidified a top 10 spot with his great week. A couple guys could challenge him, but he could be off the board even in the top 5 in some draft scenarios.
Last Player Selected: (not counting UDFA's): P Jeff Locke
-It's tough finding a player who will go late, but still probably be drafted, Jeff Locke could fit the bill. Ryan Allen will go higher, but plenty of teams could take a look at a punter in the 7th round, particularly one who handles kick-offs as well.
Most Likely to Succeed (in Year one): OT Eric Fisher, DT John Jenkins, RB Stephan Taylor, DL Datone Jones
-These are the four players who should make the highest impact right off the bat, I think all four should play at least significant roles as rookies and prove themselves to be very effective.
Highest Upside: QB E.J. Manuel, DL Margus Hunt, OT Kyle Long, DE Ezekial Ansah
-These are the four players who could be elite stars down the line if it all comes together for them. Hunt, Long and Ansah are pretty new to the game at the upper levels, while Manuel just needs some developmental time.
Best Deep Ball: QB Mike Glennon
-Glennon edges out Landry Jones here due to accuracy, as Glennon showed the strongest arm consistently throughout the week.
Worst Deep Ball: QB Ryan Nassib
-Nassib just couldn't air it out at the same level as some of the other quarterbacks. That doesn't mean he can't succeed, but it means he needs to be in the right system.
Fastest Runner (RB/WR/DB): WR Marquise Goodwin
-As a former track star this is no surprise, but Goodwin can just fly down the field. I will say some corners were highly impressive with running with him, but Goodwin is my favorite for top 40 time at the combine.
Slowest Runner (RB/WR/DB): WR Chris Harper
This is tougher to judge, but Harper is more of a possession receiver and may even be better as a movement TE with some extra weight. He just didn't have the burst that the other receivers, running backs and DB's had.
Best Late Round Value Picks (Offense): WR Conner Vernon, TE Michael Williams, OL Garrett Gilkey, OL Terron Armstead, TE Nick Kasa
-All of these guys should go in the 5th-7th rounds yet should quickly be able to impact a team. Some of them have higher ceilings, but the key here is a low bust factor and an ability to contribute even if it is as a 2nd stringer.
Best Late Round Value Picks (Defense): S J.J. Wilcox, DL Cornelius Washington, LB Ty Powell, S Duke Williams, DT Montori Hughes
Similar to the offensive guys, you should find these guys on the board in the 5th-7th rounds and they should find a way to contribute early.
