Yesterday, Steve Shoup gave us a preview of some players that could be fits for the Redskins at the Senior Bowl this week. Justin Byram has also previewed some of the players this week. Here is Justin's take on a few players that Steve also covered yesterday.
Danny Shelton, NT, Washington
It would be wrong not to start the preview of the Senior Bowl with anyone but Shelton. The massive nose tackle may have made the most money of any prospect in Mobile. Shelton is a powerful player who has just enough athletic ability to rush the quarterback when he isn't filling double teams and clogging the middle of the offensive line. So why should Redskins fans care about a nose tackle, isn't their biggest need offensive tackle? Well while the Skins O-Line could without a doubt use upgrading, the nose tackle in a 3-4 defense is one of the most important positions of all, and Shelton's combination of size, strength and speed make him a very rare player. So rare, that the Redskins would be wise to take a look at Shelton if they trade back, or even at number 5 depending on how the rest of the predraft process goes for this behemoth.
Carl Davis, NT, Iowa
Carl Davis is a bit of a thinner prospect than Danny Shelton, but is quicker and pass rushes well. If the Redskins miss out on Shelton (good possibility) Davis would be a solid middle round addition to the Redskins defense. However, Davis has enjoyed a very good week in Mobile and may have pushed his stock higher than the middle rounds.
Nate Orchard, OLB, Utah
One of the most intriguing prospects in my opinion, Orchard has what scouts refer to as a "tweener" body, in other words Orchard is not big enough to play end, and might not be big or athletic enough to play outside linebacker. However, Orchard silenced his critics in Mobile, effectively rushing the passer from the outside linebacker position and showing the athletic ability to drop into coverage.
Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
Prewitt has helped his stock while in Mobile, showing the range to play single high, and the physicality to play strong safety. Prewitt's film was up and down his senior year, but one thing's for sure, the senior loves the game of football. He is a competitor much like current Redskins CB Bashuad Breeland, and in my opinion the Redskins could use a few more players like that.
Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
Tomilson is a massive guard (6'3" 323 lbs), and could be the most pro-ready guard of the draft. Tomlinson would add the beef that Scot McCloughan and Jay Gruden want, and could push for a starting position from day one.
Justin also previewed these players that Steve didn't cover yesterday:
Henry Anderson, DE, Stanford
Anderson may be the one true 3-4 defensive end in Mobile for the senior bowl. The 6'6" Stanford product is a long prospect that is a technician, much like his former teammate Trent Murphy. Anderson is not physically imposing but is a high energy player who could be a nice youth addition to the Redskins defensive line late in the draft.
Lorenzo Mauldin, OLB, Louisville
Mauldin played most of his college career with his hand in the dirt playing the 4-3 defensive end position. However, Mauldin enjoyed a pretty solid senior season while transitioning to a 3-4 outside linebacker. Mauldin is a player with a high ceiling who is only getting better the more comfortable he becomes in his new position.
Lynden Trail, OLB, Norfolk State
If Orchard wasn't the most intriguing prospect, it was probably Lynden Trail. The small school product isn't very well known, but played very well while in Mobile. Trail is a physical specimen checking in at 6'6" 262 lbs with 34.75" arms. Trail isn't a day one starter, but could pay huge dividends if he develops into the player he has the potential to become.
Josh Shaw, CB, USC
I highlighted Shaw as a prospect in the Shrine Game, and as a result of his good play he was promoted to the Senior Bowl this week. Shaw possesses the ability to play safety and corner, and a good showing at the Senior Bowl could return his draft stock close to where it was before he was suspended for most of his senior year.
Eric Rowe, CB, Utah
Rowe fits the mold of a Scot McCloughan corner, (he helped assemble the Legion of Boom in Seattle). Rowe checks in at 6'1" 204 lbs, who isn't afraid to hit or help in stop the run. Rowe is likely a second day pick at this point, but with a good Senior Bowl showing, combined with the NFL's current obsession with big corners, Rowe could rise as high as the top of the second round.
Kevin White/Senquez Golston, CB, TCU/Ole Miss
Two smaller corners at the Senior Bowl showed their quick feet and ability to cover. Both players project as slot cornerbacks which is something the Redskins desperately need. Golston was the better player heading into mobile, and grabbed 10 interceptions his senior season. However, White earned defensive back practice player of the week. Two players who could be on the Redskins radar through the middle of the rounds, and on your radar today at the Senior Bowl.
