The 2019 Senior Bowl was a good game. NFL scouts are looking players who could change their team in 2019 and in the future with the NFL Draft just a couple months away. These players, like the ones in the East/West Shrine game, were coached by NFL coaches. This is a way to see what they can do and what they need to improve on to go to the NFL. Here are five players who stood out during the 2019 Senior Bowl.
Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
Coming into the game there was a lot of pressure on him. He was coached by the Raiders’ coaching staff. The staff said he did great. He came into the game in the second half and got into a rhythm. He showed in the game that he is a talented player and could be a terrific addition to a team as a quarterback.
Ryan Finley, QB, N.C. State
Finley was called the most accurate and consistent quarterback in the Senior Bowl. He made good decisions and looked poised throughout the game. He doesn’t have a huge arm, but the teams aren’t concerned about that. Finley went through his progressions, which is valuable at the next level. He had a clean game. This will help him in the Draft.
Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois
Saunders is on the list of many teams because he could help them on their defensive line. He started the game off with a bang, getting the first sack. He showed his quickness and disruptive pressure late in the game. He showed valuable attributes all week. Many said what they saw in the game he could achieve in the next level. Look for him to be picked high in the draft for teams needing help on the defensive line.
Andy Isabella, WR, UMass
Isabella struggled in practice with dropping balls, but his teammates said he saved the best for last. He had 7 catches for 74 yards and a touchdown. The best attribute he showed was his toughness after the catch. He will be good at the next level on fly sweeps and bubble screens. He will be a fantastic addition to any team.
Charles Omenihu, DE, Texas
Like Saunders, Omenihu was on many teams’ watch lists heading into the game. He is known for his physical ability, and he showed it. Omenihu showed no quit on every play. This will be valuable at the next level. He will need some help, but there is a lot to work with. Omenihu will be a talented player and pick.
