5 Standouts from the 2017 Senior Bowl

Posted Jan 28, 2017

A few players who impressed during the 2017 Senior Bowl - presented by Lazydays RV.

1. TE O.J. Howard, South
Howard was widely considered to be the top prospect competing in the Senior Bowl, earning a first-round grade in Mel Kiper’s mock draft last week. He played a limited number of snaps in the game, but still managed to haul in four passes for 39 yards. With one minute left in the third quarter, Howard has any many receiving yards as the entire North team.  

2. RB Kareem Hunt, North
Hunt was the most productive runner for either team, picking up 118 yards on 15 carries and averaging 7.9 yards per attempt. He ripped off a 43-yard run, the longest play of the game for either team. Hunt added an 11-yard reception to his standout day running with the football. CBS Sports projects Hunt as a third or fourth-round draft pick.

3. WR Josh Reynolds, South
The South team scored just one touchdown through the air, and Reynolds was on the receiving end of it. He scored on a 39-yard pass, which was beautifully delivered from Davis Webb over his right shoulder. Reynolds caught five more passes, finishing the day with six receptions and 96 receiving yards. He was the leader in receiving yards for both teams. Zay Jones led the North with 68 yards and a touchdown.

4. S Lorenzo Jerome, North
Jerome had an active first half, recording the first interception of the game when he picked off South quarterback Josh Dobbs. The interception came after defensive end Derek Rivers laid a hit on Dobbs, forcing the pass to float past the intended receiver and into Jerome’s hands. Later in the first half, Jerome sniffed out a reverse and forced the runner back towards the inside of the field several yards behind the line of scrimmage. With a second effort, Jerome was able to strip the runner, although the South would recover it. Jerome got his hands on another pass in the fourth quarter, picking off Antonio Pipkin on a deep ball in the end zone.

5. QB Davis Webb, South
Webb finished the day completing 11 of 16 passes for 165 yards along with his touchdown pass to Reynolds. He took over after Dobbs started the game and wasn’t intercepted all day. For his efforts, he was selected as the game's MVP. Webb was No. 2 in the NCAA in passing yards, No. 3 in completions and No. 4 in passing touchdowns during the 2016 season. Over the course of his four seasons, three of which were at Texas Tech and one being at Cal, Webb earned an average passer rating of 137.1.
