2023 Senior Bowl Recap

Senior Bowl Day 1 Coverage

The Reese’s Senior Bowl week has kicked off. Prospects are flying around the field. The Ooohs and ahhs are pouring from the media crowd in the stands. This week of practice can be massive for aiding players’ draft stocks or burying them in the dirt. After Day 1 of practice, let’s see who could rise and fall on NFL draft boards.

Senior Bowl Day 1 Notes

Georgia RB Kenny McIntosh was tended to by trainers on the field for several minutes during the afternoon session after suffering an injury while attempting to recover a fumble on a rep.

McIntosh was diagnosed with a calf cramp. We may see him back on the field as early as Wednesday’s practices.

Louisville QB Malik Cunningham missed Tuesday’s practices with a stomach virus. It’s unclear if he will recover quickly enough to be a factor this week.

Senior Bowl Day 2 Coverage

The Reese’s Senior Bowl week continues with prospects flying around the field. As the week evolves, players’ draft stocks can soar and plummet with the drop of a hat. Let’s check in after Day 2 and see who helped themselves the most and who could have dimmed their rising star.

The Andre Iosivas love remains strong in Mobile…

The quarterbacks haven’t been overly impressive through the first two days of practices, but most of them have at least shown flashes.

Kenny McIntosh was back at practice Wednesday after leaving Tuesday with what turned out to be just a calf cramp. When McIntosh first went down, many in attendance were worried that he suffered a significant injury.

Senior Bowl Day 2 News and Notes

Tulane RB Tyjae Spears, outlined above in the winner’s section, spoke with Crissy Froyd and I on Wednesday morning about how he’s gained weight since the season ended for the pre-draft process. Spears, who was listed this past season at 195 pounds, said he played the bowl game against USC at 197 pounds. He said he put on the extra seven pounds to get him to his Senior Bowl weigh-in number of 204 over the past four weeks in training.

BYU WR Puka Nacua was an unannounced absence from Wednesday’s practice. As of publication Wednesday evening, the Senior Bowl has not addressed that. We are not aware of any injury he suffered during Tuesday’s practice session. Every year, players who feel comfortable about their draft stock pull out of the event mid-week. It’s possible that this is what Nacua has done. It’s also possible his participation Wednesday was compromised by something else that hasn’t been announced, like a stomach bug, which brings us to our next item…

Louisville QB Malik Cunningham, who missed Tuesday’s session with a stomach virus and wasn’t sure if he would be able to participate this week, returned on Wednesday as a full-go participant in practice. This development certainly wasn’t assured after Cunningham wasn’t spotted at the media breakfast Wednesday morning.

Speaking of good news on the roster front, Georgia RB Kenny McIntosh was back at practice on Wednesday looking no worse for the wear after suffering a calf strain during Tuesday’s session.

Texas Tech RB SaRodorick Thompson replaced the injured Roschon Johnson on Wednesday’s roster. Johnson has been ruled out for the remainder of the event.

Following Thompson’s whirlwind travel day, he measured into the event at 5’11” 1/2, 214 pounds, with a 77” 1/4 wingspan. Thompson’s high-end comp is a bigger JaMycal Hasty. He moves well and has some versatility to his game.

But he’s an unrefined prospect who never made the star-turn at Tech. So evaluators will keep a close eye on him with another extended-look opportunity on Thursday.

OT Cody Mauch told me on Wednesday morning that he gained 85 pounds since signing with the Bison by taking advantage of NDSU’s all-you-can-eat meal plans. Turns out, the guy loves stromboli from the dining hall.
