More players flashed at Senior Bowl practices on Wednesday. Here’s who looked good to us.
CB Damontae Kazee – San Diego State – He’s far from a finished product, but he has the natural catch-up speed to make plays even if he’s initially beaten. That being said there weren’t many receivers successfully gaining separation against him Wednesday.
ILB Haason Reddick – Temple – Reddick read plays quickly and was closing on the ball consistently faster than his fellow linebackers during team periods. He also proved very tough to handle in 1-on-1 pass rush drills with the running backs and tight ends.
WR Fred Ross – Mississippi State – Ross plays to his size (6-2, 205) and made a handful of plays in traffic Wednesday. Ross also offers some run after catch ability. Has experience in the slot where teams are putting bigger wideouts lately, but showed he can play outside too.
TE Jonnu Smith – Florida International – He flashed a couple of times on Tuesday, but was even more noticeable on Wednesday. Smith made plays in 1-on-1s against linebackers both in receiving and in pass protection. He anchored well and has enough speed and size to work the intermediate areas in the pass game.
WR Trent Taylor – Louisiana Tech – Another smurf receiver much like UNC’s Switzer, Taylor gets in and out of his breaks fast, but has shown an ability to run the route tree and adjusts well to the ball despite his small catch radius. Consistent, doesn’t have drops.
