Practice Report: Notes from Day 2 at Senior Bowl

SENIOR-BOWL

Below is what happened on the second day of Senior Bowl practice on Wednesday along with some other notes from reviewing Tuesday's practice tape. I'm going to try to avoid writing about the same players I wrote about in yesterday’s report, but that doesn't mean those players didn't perform well on the Wednesday. All opinions from here on our are my own, so let's get to it:

View the best photos from Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Alabama.

National Team

* After a strong first practice, UCLA pass rusher Laiatu Latu was even more dominant in his second practice. He showed off a variety of pass rush moves, including speed to bend the edge and beat offensive tackles with speed. I also had a chance to talk to him about his injury history, which did force him to medically retire before re-starting his career at UCLA. He is a smart, mature man. You can find that interview on the Giants Huddle podcast later in the day on Thursday.

* Penn State edge rusher Adisa Isaac had some impressive reps against Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga during team drills. Fuaga has been one of the best offensive linemen in Mobile, but Adisa beat him on three of four reps using his speed to get to the edge. Fuaga got the best of Isaac on their final matchup at the end of practice in front of the offense and defense, tossing him to the ground on a spin move.

* Roger Rosengarten got some snaps at left tackle after primarily playing the right side on Tuesday and starting there for Washington the last two seasons.

* Jordan Morgan measured in at 6-5 and 312 pounds with 32 7/8-inch arms. The minimum threshold for offensive tackle is generally considered to be 33 inches, but Morgan was insistent when I spoke to him for the Giants Huddle podcast that he is here to play tackle and does not think he has to move into guard. He has had some good reps at tackle this week.

* Devontez Walker was open constantly on Wednesday, getting separation on a variety of routes all over the field. He created separation at the top of his routes and used his speed to get over the top. He did have a couple of drops over the first two days, but at 6-1 and 197 pounds, he has the size and athleticism to be a factor in the NFL.

* Western Kentucky wide receiver Malachi Corely is a tank at 5-10 and 215 pounds. He is built like a running back and showed off those skills on Wednesday, lowering his shoulder after an end-around. He has also showed some route-running prowess and the ability to use his speed to win deep. He claimed to me in our interview on the Giants Huddle podcast releasing late on Thursday that he will run in the 4.3's at the NFL Combine. He also fielded punts.

* Fellow wide receiver Ricky Pearsall has had a strong first couple days of practice, separating often and not dropping any passes. At 6-1 and 193 pounds, he has played outside and in the slot and has been effective from both spots.

* North Carolina State linebacker Payton Wilson has been the most impressive linebacker on the National Team. He had some injury issues during his college career, but he has shown what he can do when healthy this week. He broke up a pass and has been physical in the run game. North Carolina's Cedric Gray also made plays throughout the week, including a pass break-up at the end of practice when he covered Isaiah Davis on an arrow route.

* Quinyon Mitchell continued his strong play with an interception during 1-on-1's that he ran all the way back to the end zone on the opposite side of the field.

* Chau Smith-Wade also had an interception during 1-on-1's, and Rutgers cornerback Max Melton had a forced fumble near the sideline.

* Duke defensive lineman DeWayne Carter had another strong rep, using a bull rush during 1-on-1's to put an offensive lineman on his back.

American Team

* Missouri defensive lineman Darius Robinson has been one of the most consistently disruptive players at the position this week. At 6-5 and 286 pounds with 34 ¾-inch arms, he has shown his versatility by taking reps at offensive tackle and three-technique defense tackle spot, lined up between the guard and tackle spots. He is constantly getting into the backfield with his strength, quickness, and speed.

* Massive defensive tackle T'Vondre Sweat showed off his power throughout the American practice, pushing offensive linemen into the backfield in 1-on-1 drills.

* Texas offensive lineman Christian Jones has played both the guard and tackle spots, but he has looked the best at right tackle, with several impressive reps at 6-5 and 318 pounds with 34 ¾-inch arms. Missouri offensive tackle Javon Foster has also flashed the skills to play tackle with several good reps during 1-on-1 drills.

* Gigantic left tackle Patrick Paul stands at 6-7 with an enormous 36 ¼-inch wingspan. He has shown off pretty good feet for a man inside and the strength to anchor. Alabama edge rusher Chris Braswell did a good job getting his hands inside on Paul and pushed him into the backfield on a 1-on-1 rep. Braswell could slip into the back end of the first round at 6-3 and 257 pounds with a 32 7/8-inch wingspan.

* Auburn cornerback DJ James had an interception during the team portion of practice, jumping a slant and bringing it back the other way. Safety Kamren Kinchens blew up a screen pass, while his teammate James Williams (linebacker converting from safety) made a nice run stop during the team portion of practice.

* Wide receiver Jha'Quan Jackson from Tulane stands at only 5-9 and 190 pounds, but he flashed a suddenness and explosiveness throughout the day. He did have a couple drops that prevented him from taking advantage of some of that separation.

* Florida State wide receiver Johnny Wilson is a unique body type for wide receiver, checking in at 6-6 and 237 pounds. His ridiculous 84-inch wingspan was on full display as he reached out to pluck what looked like an airmailed pass out from over his head.

In tomorrow's report I'll give the overview on what the quarterbacks have done this week, and focus in on who has had the most impressive practice reps throughout the three days here in Mobile.
