Senior Bowl Roster Predictions: Offense & Special Teams

Senior Bowl Roster Predictions Offense & Special Teams

With Brian living in Mobile, Alabama, the Senior Bowl has been a big part of what Draft Countdown does. Not only that, but it is an event where most players increase their draft stocks and work with NFL staffs. Just like we did last year, we will predict what players will get invited to the Senior Bowl Roster and some runners-up who could be replacements. Brian will be making his defensive predictions as well.

With there being a ton of older players in college football this season, it is a difficult choice to pair these lists down appropriately. Also, players may return to school, not accept the invite, etc. Add in that the Shrine Game pulled a few players away from the Senior Bowl last year, and it could be a mix of which game players attend. For this list, I am assuming the Senior Bowl roster will have their top choice of players.

This is also a prediction and not who I personally would choose if I were picking the Senior Bowl roster. Each list would look different based on my personal evaluations and who I think is the “best” at each position. The Senior Bowl generally does a great job of balancing that with potential draft capital and what players NFL teams are interested in seeing.

 In many cases, I would squeeze a small school player in here and there, but it was a tough fit for all players deserving to go. Take a look and let me know who I missed out on!

 

Quarterback (6 Total)

Jayden Daniels, LSU

Sam Hartman, Notre Dame

Bo Nix, Oregon

Michael Penix, Washington

Spencer Rattler, South Carolina

Jordan Travis, Florida State

Nix and Penix feel like locks to be invited, and Daniels’ play this season gets him there. Travis may be more college football star than an NFL star, but he has played well enough to earn an invite. The last two spots are difficult, and it may depend on who decides to declare. But, Rattler/Hartman have to go and have big names and the physical tools to impress.

 

Runners Up

Carson Beck, Georgia

Dillon Gabriel, Oklahoma

Devin Leary, Kentucky

Joe Milton, Tennessee

Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland

Kurtis Rourke, Ohio

DJ Uiagalelei, Oregon State

Tyler Van Dyke, Miami (FL)

 

Running Back (6 Total)

Trey Benson, Florida State

Blake Corum, Michigan

Ray Davis, Kentucky

Daijun Edwards, Georgia

Marshawn Lloyd, Southern Cal

Jase McClellan, Alabama

There are a few standout RBs that just make sense like Corum, Davis, Edwards, and Lloyd. Benson would be a great get if he decides to go as well. McClellan fills the Alabama quote, even if he is more of a pure Day 3 player.

 

Runners Up

Isaiah Davis, South Dakota State

Frank Gore Jr., Southern Miss

Dylan Laube, New Hampshire

Jo’Quavious Marks, Mississippi State

Kendall Milton, Georgia

La’Damian Webb, South Alabama

Miyan Williams, Ohio State

Roydell Williams, Alabama

 

Fullbacks (2 Total)

Jaheim Bell, Florida State

Brant Kuithe, Utah

Bell is a slam dunk if he is considered an FB/H-Back. Kuithe is a bit more complex since he is out for the season with an injury. The Senior Bowl would be a huge opportunity for him to rehab his draft stock though.

 

Runners Up

Corey Dyches, Maryland

Kalel Mullings, Michigan

Trent Pennix, NC State

Marshel Martin, Sacramento State

 

Wide Receivers (16 Total)

Jermaine Burton, Alabama

Malachi Corley, Western Kentucky

Tre Harris, Mississippi

Tory Horton, Colorado State

Xavier Legette, South Carolina

Ladd McConkey, Georgia

Jalen McMillan, Washington

Rome Odunze, Washington

Ricky Pearsall, Florida

Brenden Rice, Southern Cal

Will Sheppard, Vanderbilt

Jamari Thrash, Louisville

Devontez Walker, North Carolina

Xavier Weaver, Colorado

Johnny Wilson, Florida State

Roman Wilson, Michigan

WR is always difficult. There are a ton of high-profile names (Roman Wilson, Odunze/McMillian, etc) that are sure to be invited. But when you get about 5 or 6 WRs in, it becomes a bit of a crapshoot. Will there be reliance on last year’s hyped-up prospects (Ladd McConkey and Juice Wells for example, who missed my cut), or go with good players who could bring a new school/element (Rice, Pearsall, Sheppard, Weaver, etc). There are also a few WR surprises every year that don’t have much buzz until the Senior Bowl invite. Who will that be this year?

 

Runners Up

Anthony Gould, Oregon State

Lideatrick Griffin, Mississippi State

Tyrone Howell, UL-Monroe

Caulin Lacy, South Alabama

KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Penn State

Luke McCaffrey, Rice

Bub Means, Pittsburgh

Ainias Smith, Texas A&M

Theo Wease, Missouri

Juice Wells, South Carolina

Jordan Whittington, Texas

Isaiah Williams, Illinois

 

Tight Ends (7 Total)

Erick All, Iowa (injured)

Dallin Holker, Colorado State

Brevyn Spann-Ford, Minnesota

Ben Sinnott, Kansas State

Cade Stover, Ohio State

Tyler Warren, Penn State

Benjamin Yurosek, Stanford

Tight End is thin this year and made it difficult to feel good about six names. Stover is the only real slam dunk of the group. All will not be able to participate but will have been invited. Yurosek, Holker, and Sinnott had good years but may be on the bubble. Spann-Ford is big and athletic, but is he a good enough prospect? Guys like Jalin Conyers, Theo Johnson, and Trey Knox were my next up.

 

Runners up

McCallan Castles, Tennessee

Jalin Conyers, Arizona State

Zach Heins, South Dakota State

Theo Johnson, Penn State

Trey Knox, South Carolina

Caden Prieskorn, Mississippi

Austin Stogner, Oklahoma

Jared Wiley, TCU

 

 

Offensive Line (25 Total)

Kiran Amegadjie, Yale (Injury)

Graham Barton, Duke

Cooper Beebe, Kansas State

Anthony Belton, NC State

John Campbell Jr., Tennessee

Marques Cox, Kentucky

Olu Fashanu, Penn State

Troy Fautanu, Washington

Zach Frazier, West Virginia

Taliese Fuaga, Oregon State

Tyler Grable, UCF

Joshua Gray, Oregon State

Tyler Guyton, Oklahoma

Sataoa Laumea, Utah

Beaux Limmer, Arkansas

Christian Mahogany, Boston College

Dylan McMahon, NC State

Jordan Morgan, Arizona

Drake Nugent, Michigan

Patrick Paul, Houston

Dominick Puni, Kansas

Walter Rouse, Oklahoma

Xavier Truss, Georgia

Sedrick Van Pran, Georgia

Zak Zinter, Michigan

 

Offensive Line is always the most difficult to predict. There are so many, but tons of deserving names on my Runners Up list I wanted to include. It is also another position where a few names will emerge with Senior Bowl invites that haven’t been given the appropriate scouting in the media yet. Fashanu likely won’t attend, but the rest absolutely could. Barton, Beebe, Fuaga, Mahogany, and Van Pran all feel near slam dunks. Yale’s Kiran Amegadje would have gotten an invite, but he will be unable to participate due to injury. The rest have good shots to go, but there are plenty in the runners-up I like. 

 

Runners Up

Isaiah Adams, Illinois

Javion Cohen, Miami (FL)

Ethan Driskell, Marshall

Javon Foster, Missouri

Matt Goncalves, Pittsburgh

LaDarius Henderson, Michigan

Myles Hinton, Michigan

Jeremy James, Mississippi

Christian Jones, Texas

Matthew Jones, Ohio State

Seth McLaughlin, Alabama

Jonah Monheim, Southern Cal

Zion Nelson, Miami (FL)

Doug Nester, West Virginia

Julian Pearl, Illinois

Will Putnam, Clemson

Andrew Raym, Oklahoma

Charles Turner III, LSU

 

Kickers (2 Total)

Joshua Karty, Stanford

Will Reichard, Alabama

Reichard is far from my top 2 choices, but as we saw last year, the Senior Bowl will pass on better specialists (see Jake Moody) to bring in the big SEC schools like Alabama and Georgia. He received an invite last year but went back to school. Karty is my Kicker 1 and if he declares, has a good shot to make this or the Shrine.

 

Runners Up

Ryan Coe, North Carolina

John Hoyland, Wyoming

Harrison Mevis, Missouri

James Turner, Michigan

 

Punters (2 Total)

Oscar Chapman, Auburn

Tory Taylor, Iowa

Punter is tough to pinpoint. Taylor is my #1 but isn’t a slam dunk per se. Bringing in an Auburn specialist makes a lot of sense, even if Chapman isn’t draftable.

 

Runners Up

Nik Constantinou, Texas A&M

Jeremy Crawshaw, Florida

Kai Kroeger, South Carolina

Austin McNamara, Texas Tech

Kyle Ostendorp, Arizona

 

Long Snappers (2 Total)

William Mote, Georgia

Michael Vinson, Notre Dame

Vinson feels like a slam dunk. The second LS is difficult to guess, so I will go with the Dawg.

 

Runners Up

Marco Ortiz, Nebraska

Bailey Parsons, Stanford

William Wagner, Michigan
