Reading Time: 3 minutes.

Dawand Jones – OT – Ohio St

An absolute mammoth of a man, one thing is for sure you won’t be able to miss Dawnad Jones at the Senior Bowl. 

At 6’8”, 360 Lbs and a massive 89 1/2″ wingspan, the Ohio State right tackle is a rare specimen who plays with power and physicality. He also has surprising mobility for his size so watch out for how he performs in 1 on 1 drills during the practice sessions. 

Cody Mauch – OL – North Dakota St

Every year there is a smaller school darling starring at the Senior Bowl. We all remember the hype surrounding Quinn Meinerz who quickly became a draft favourite. Then, most recently, Cole Stange was at the Senior Bowl and was a 1st round pick.  This year that mantle falls to Cody Mauch an FCS.

A walk-on at the tight end position at the division II level, Mauch has had lots of praise throughout his 6-year college career. A nasty finisher who is really athletic, expect Mauch to really impress and get his name circulating after the senior bowl. 

Matthew Bergeron – OT – Syracuse

An early favourite in the scouting process, Bergeron oozes polish. A physical, intelligent and mobile tackle, Bergeron is NFL-ready and should prove his worth at the Senior Bowl. 

A solid and dependable asset, expect Bergeron to be in the day 2 discussion. 

Ade Adebawore – DL – Northwestern

In our recent interview with Troy offensive linemen Jake Andrews, he told us that Adebawore is one of the toughest players he has come up against in his preparation for the Senior Bowl. 

An extremely versatile lineman, Adebawore can line up across the defensive front and keeps on improving. A super explosive player who has a high motor, Adebawore could solidify a potential day 2 selection if he turns it on in Mobile.

Andre Carter II – Edge – Army

Andre Carter will be the highest draft player out of Army since the 1940s and in the modern draft era. 

Carter has elite length measurables and a non-stop motor. Teams will know his best football is ahead of him. You can expect him to be a name that gets some more buzz as we head through the draft process.
