Bills fans interested in the April NFL draft will get an eyeful Saturday, when the Senior Bowl kicks off at 4pm Eastern. And most of the attention will naturally be directed at the quarterbacks in the game.
But NFL Network analyst Charles Davis says there are several undheralded players to keep an eye on in the North vs. South game Saturday. He spoke with The John Murphy Show in Mobile, Alabama this week.
““It’s easy to say the quarterbacks. For me I’m a big wanting to know what we’re getting wide receiver and cornerback wise. So far I think Markus Wheaton from Oregon State has been terrific out at wide receiver. I think Desmond Trufant, has been terrific on the corner for the North squad. On the South squad there’s a kid named Robert Alford from Southeast Louisiana that no one is really talking about. I think he’s a heck of a football player so I’m going to keep an eye on him too.”

The practices for Saturday’s Senior Bowl are winding down–four practices for each of the teams in total this week. And observers who’ve been watching the quarterbacks work are drawing their own conclusions about how they stack up.
Former DB Charles Davis is an analyst for the NFL Network who’s part of their “Path to the Draft” coverage. He’s been here in Mobile, Alabama all week long watching the quarterbacks work out.
The consensus among the media seems to be that Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson has been the steadiest of the six QB performers this week. And Davis agrees.
‘“He has all of the intangibles and in a lot of ways he reminds me of Kirk Cousins from last year,” Davis told The John Murphy Show at the Senior Bowl.
“He’s one of those guys that has great leadership skills, understands the big picture, has a toughness about him. He has to dispel some myths about how many times he’s been hurt and concussions because there are a lot of myths about it because there has only been one.”
Davis says Wilson persevered through a rough senior year at Arkansas and is better for it.
“This past year was just so difficult with the way that everything went down with the coaching change and all. I think he ended up trying to do too much. It was very similar to what Drew Brees went through. When Sean Payton is not there the leader is gone and so Drew is not just quarterbacking he’s trying to make sure the offense is right and it takes some time to settle in and react to that and I think that’s what happened to Tyler this year.”
