Senior Bowl Day 1 Recap: Oregon QB Justin Herbert shines; S. Carolina State OT Alex Taylor is biggest player

Below is a highlight of today’s first Senior Bowl practice from Shoup.
———-

Oregon QB Herbert looks good

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert is in the mix to be the second QB selected. He’s looked sharp all day. Former Alabama and Oklahoma signal-caller Jalen Hurts, meanwhile, is making a push to be drafted on Day 2.

Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw vs. Clemson’s John Simpson

Javon Kinlaw (6-5, 315) is widely considered the second-best defensive lineman in the 2020 NFL draft, but when South Carolina faced Clemson earlier this season, guard John Simpson (6-4, 330) held his own, which helped propel him up draft boards. The two were at it again today during practice.

Weigh-ins of note

Pair of IOL look sharp

Teams are going to love LSU center Lloyd Cushenberry (6-3, 312), who’s considered one of the top centers in the draft. He’s also going to interview well, Shoup says. But the big surprise comes from Ben Bartch (6-5, 308) of tiny St. John’s, who could see his name called as early as Day 2.

Georgia Southern CB comes up big

Kindle Vildor (5-10, 185) of Georgia Southern had an interception against Colorado QB Steven Montez. Vildor is currently rated as a priority free agent in the latest Fanspeak-Steve big board.

Flagged for medicals

Five players were flagged for medical issues, per Yahoo Sports lead NFL draft analyst Eric Edholm, including Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk (5-11, 201), who is sitting out the game.
