  1. […] It was a pleasure to watch Jacksonville defensive line coach Todd Wash run drills on Day 2. He ran a crisp practice, actively coached the South defensive linemen on technique, and had his players laughing at (often unheard) one liners. Wash needled the offensive linemen and offensive line coaches endlessly, frequently asking if they “needed help” or had “gone on vacation” if they didn’t get to the line fast enough for him in combined drills. Each South defensive lineman seemed to respond to Wash well. In particular, Markus Golden showed improvement in his hand placement and edge setting technique after Wash’s instruction. If I was able to take note of the coachability of the South defensive linemen, you can be sure those NFL personnel watching did, too. There isn’t a clear edge rushing prospect on the South roster, but Golden and Owa Odighizuwa each flashed the ability to win off the edge. Odighizuwa has a good first step and uses his hands well, but struggles to keep momentum off the edge in the same way Hau’oli Kikaha does. All of the South ends, especially Trey Flowers and Preston Smith, consistently showed good edge setting technique in individual drills. Smith and Flowers carried that forward into team drills. Odighizuwa had more difficulty anchoring and staying on his feet in those team situations. Denzel Perryman didn’t practice with an abdominal strain on Day 2. That’s disappointing, as he was the consensus best off the line of scrimmage prospect here this week. I heard scouts and evaluators praise Stephone Anthony, but he didn’t flash to me as much as Jeff Luc did for the North. I haven’t watched the defensive backs critically yet, but multiple evaluators have expressed disappointment to me in Cody Prewitt, who was a consensus second day pick for many. One secondary scout said he hasn’t seen much to like from the safeties on either roster. For more Senior Bowl Coverage, head to the RSP Senior Bowl Central Page […]
