Under the Radar Senior Bowl Prospects

The 2023 Senior Bowl is full of talent and there are lots of top prospects and prospects carrying momentum into the week. 

But who are some of the guys who are not being talked about who could impress in Mobile, Alabama?

We take a look at some of the under-the-radar prospects who you should know ahead of Senior Bowl week. 

Josh Whyle – TE – Cincinnati

A productive pass-catching tight end, Josh Whyle is a playmaker at the position and his huge frame gives him the ability to be a key redzone threat and chain mover. 

Look out for Whyle in pass-catching drills where he uses his length and wingspan to haul in catches. A knock on Whyle was that he wasn’t a sufficient blocker. But, after adding weight through this past season, he may be able to prove critics wrong in practice drills.

Keion White – DL – Georgia Tech

White found himself on Bruce Feldman’s Freak List last off-season. At 6’5” and 286 lbs, he has been caught hitting 21 mph on his runs, can jump 32” and bench a massive 38 reps. That will be mighty impressive when we get to the combine, but can he translate it to the Senior Bowl?

A versatile lineman who is explosive he could thrive in practice sessions and could rocket up draft boards.

Nick Broeker – IOL – Ole Miss

Another versatile offensive lineman who has a nasty streak, Broeker has the makings of a prospect who will relish the practice sessions. 

Broeker is an athletic lineman who will be viewed as a guard at the next level but has previous tackle experience. He can get out into space quickly and displays excellent mobility and athletic ability. Broeker will be hoping he translated his form at Ole Miss over to the Senior Bowl and can prove that he can be solid in pass protection.

Jay Ward – DB – LSU

Expect Jay Ward to be a make on everyone’s lips at the end of Senior Bowl week. An extremely versatile defensive back, Ward has the functionality to play and position and expect him to take some reps at both corner and safety. Ward may project best as a nickel at the next level but that position is becoming more and more valued. 

He is a hard-hitting tackler, with great length and size, he performs really well in coverage and can break up passes.  

Ivan Pace – LB – Cincinnati

An undersized player who plays much bigger than his size, Ivan Pace is a beast who will chew you up and spit you out. 

An absolute wrecking ball, he can play in coverage but thrives when attacking the line of scrimmage. Coming downhill he will hit you hard but he also has the armoury and shiftiness to get to the quarterback. 

Look for him to be one of those players who thieves in 1-on-1s as he has the ability to embarrass his opponents.

Andrei Iosivas – WR – Princeton

The Senior Bowl is notorious for being an opportunity for us to finally give some small school prospects the recognition they deserve. Senior Bowl Jim Nagy has compared Iosivas to Christian Watson. Iosivas is a player who creates yards of separation through his speed and his speed is deceptive for his 6’3” 200 lbs frame. 

If Iosivas can put on the burners in the practice sessions the media will rightly be speaking a lot more about him. 

Nathaniel ‘Tank’ Dell – WR – Houston

A player who is currently being overlooked, Tank Dell could have his Draft process breakout at this year’s Senior Bowl. 

Ranked #10 on Owain’s early positional rankings, Dell is a shifty receiver who is a pure separator. At 5’10” and only 165 Lbs he is extremely undersized. But, he is extremely explosive and creates an abundance of separation which could see him be extremely successful in 1-on-1 drills. 

Keeanu Benton – DT – Wisconsin

Benton is a pure disruptor. At 6’4” and 316 lbs, he is extremely strong and wins with power. He has a great arsenal of skill moves which see him evade offensive linemen and is a surprisingly twitchy athlete. When he can use his swim move, offensive linemen don’t know how to deal with him. 

Expect him to have a dominating display in Mobile.

Julius Brents – CB – Kansas St

The 2023 corner class is possibly the best group in the entire draft. With shapes and sizes to suit everyone’s needs. Julius Brents is a player who should be being talked about a lot more than he is. 

A player who is extremely toolsy and traitsy, at 6’4” and 202 lbs, Brents uses his length to deflect passes and wrap up his tackles.
