The Senior Bowl is a fantastic (and in many ways, final) opportunity for some of the best young football players in the nation to prove they deserve a spot on an NFL roster. The South actually defeated the North 16-15, but none of us reading dynasty articles really care about that part.
Several players took advantage of their opportunity this past weekend and probably made themselves some future NFL money. Several others would have been better off staying at home or training for the upcoming NFL Combine (February 28th – March 6th).
I’m not saying that one week of practice and an exhibition game completely defines the career of these players. However, every year there are players who take advantage of the opportunity at hand.
Just last year, players like Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, Braxton Miller, Kenneth Dixon, DeAndre Washington, and Tyler Ervin took advantage of a chance to boost their draft stock. All of them went inside the first five rounds of the NFL Draft last spring. There were of course some players who disappointed last year. Their draft stocks quickly disappeared.
Let’s dive in and see who just changed their future (for better or worse).
Davis Webb, QB California
