The exciting and busy Senior Bowl week wrapped up with the conclusion of yesterday’s game. It’s now time to reflect on the week that was and look at all the players scouted down here in terms of fits for the New England Patriots.  

Over the course of the week it was clear there are many players who could fit what the Patriots need, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Here are 15 players that fit  with the Patriots based on the week in Mobile and the needs of the team.

Everyone loves mock drafts and everyone loves seeing which prospects will be available to them when their team is on the clock. However, what would the draft look like if it was made up only of players who played in the Senior Bowl?

After watching all 100+ players this week in Mobile, AL I decided to put together a mock draft using only the players who participated in the Senior Bowl week festivities.

Take a look at my Senior Bowl only mock draft.

All the football that “really mattered”  is in the books and it’s time to start reflecting on the past week and what it means going forward. Overall, I thought the practices were much more productive than last year and all of that can be attributed to new Executive Director Phil Savage.

Savage wanted to make sure scouts were able to get as much information as possible while down here in Mobile. In this article I take a look at each position and let you know who I think was the top performer at each one.

Today was the last day of Senior Bowl practice and despite the players being in only helmets and shorts I was able to get pretty good notes, thanks to 7 on 7 passing drills as well as defensive line technique work.

It was the scouts finally opportunity to fill in holes on prospects while down here in Mobile as the NFL teams began to clear out and head back on the road.

The Lions coaching staff is running a physical and emotional practices here at the Senior Bowl. With such a physical competition it seemed a lot of injuries were cropping up. Overall it was a very good practice with the tone set early. Today the players were used to their surroundings and it showed. I thought some players bounced back well and some continued to ascend up draft boards.

Here are my 15 thoughts from Day Three at South Practice.

Day two was my first opportunity to see the South team on the field practicing. With no QB separating himself from the pack it was a chance for the South QBs to steal the show and possibly improve their draft standing. The competition was good throughout the day, as the players settled in and got acquainted to their surroundings.

Who were the players who stood out? What was the highlight of the day? Which players struggled in this environment? All that and more in my 15 thoughts.
