Teams don’t win the Senior Bowl. Players win the contest.
It’s largely about the individual effort of NFL prospects. With that in mind, here are players who won the Senior Bowl, and helped their stock heading in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: He finished as the Senior Bowl MVP, and finished the game with a 73 completion percentage for 115 yards (10.5 yards per attempt) with a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown. Quarterback Tyree Jackson may have looked like the most physically gifted quarterback, but Jones looked far more ready for the pros.
LJ Collier, DE, TCU: He logged three tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in the game, which was a representation of the hard work he put in during the week of practices. According to reporters on the scene, he was a beast all week in 1-on-1’s and other drills. In the game, things were no different.
