Senior Bowl Positional Rankings- Offense
1. Jake Locker- Locker is by all accounts the most draftable quarterback in this particular class and he can make all the throws. Accuracy continues to be an issue.
2. Colin Kaepernick- Kaepernick has been very consistent this week and he has great upside. He will take a year of seasoning before he's ready to play.
3. Ricky Stanzi- Stanzi has all the physical tools but has been inaccurate. His footwork leaves something to be desired.
4. Christian Ponder- Ponder had a better day on Wednesday but still looks injured as his arm isn't as strong as expected.
1. DeMarco Murray- Murray struggled a bit in pass protection but was still clearly the best back at the Senior Bowl.
2. Bilal Powell- Powell has good burst and excellent vision. He was the best pass protector of the South team.
3. Kendall Hunter- Hunter cracked our Top Five with a great Wednesday practice as he ran well and was a star in protection.
4. Derrick Locke- Locke is as speedy as any back here, and will fit in well as a third-down back.
5. Roy Helu, Jr.- Helu caught the ball better out of the backfield and was solid in pass protection. Good downhill runner.
1. Leonard Hankerson- Perfect route runner, strong hands and knows how to use his body to shield defenders.
2. Vincent Brown- Brown continues to be the tactician of the North squad as he runs flawless routes and catches everything.
3. Austin Pettis- Pettis had a very good Wednesday practice as he caught everything thrown in his direction and was able to get open.
4. Dane Sanzenbacher- He doesn't look like a football player, but all he does is get open and make catches.
5. Ronald Johnson- Great route runner who should be a slot receiver on the next level.
1. Luke Stockar- Stockar is the creme of this Senior Bowl crop as he makes all the tough catches and the routine ones. Could have a Gronkowski type impact on a team as a rookie.
2. D.J. Williams- Great character guy who had a good day catching the football on Wednesday. Shorter than you want at 6'2", Williams may be limited in the seam.
3. Mike McNeill- McNeill blocks well for his size and he's surprisingly athletic. Good day by the former Nebraska tight end.
1. Anthony Castonzo- Castonzo had a great practice Wednesday as he dominated at left tackle in one-on-one drills.
2. Gabe Carimi- Carimi struggled a bit with footwork and got out of sorts. Tough day for the former Badger.
3. Nate Solder- Solder didn't have a particularly good day but his size and feet will keep him as a top prospect.
1. Rodney Hudson- Great power from the somewhat undersized guard. Clearly the best of a good group of South linemen.
2. Stephen Schilling- Good day by the former Michigan lineman as he held up well against very good defensive linemen.
3. Danny Watkins- Watkins continues to impress scouts and onlookers with his feet and power.
4. Kevin Kowalski- The former Toledo Rocket showed good inside strength and leverage.
