Looking back at the Senior Bowl

The South defeated the North 21-16 this past Saturday in the Senior Bowl, and there was a huge SEC representation in the game.

Here are a few highlights from the game and the week:

  • Alabama tight end Michael Williams caught a 20-yard touchdown pass on a nice over-the-shoulder grab from Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel, who was named the game’s Most Outstanding Player.

  • Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson completed 8 of 11 passes for 40 yards.

  • Georgia noseguard John Jenkins was among the five best players during the week of practice, according to ESPN analyst Todd McShay.

  • Florida running back Mike Gillislee and Kentucky guard Larry Warford also helped their draft stock with strong performances during the week, according to McShay. Gillislee impressed with his instincts and quickness, while Warford further established himself as one of the top guards in the draft.

  • Arkansas receiver Cobi Hamilton was impressive during red zone work during the week. Kevin Weidl of Scouts Inc. said Hamilton scored points with how physical he was in his route running, his strong hands and his ability to use his frame to shield defenders from the ball. Weidl said Hamilton was able to consistently win battles in the red zone.

  • Gillislee rushed for 46 yards on 10 carries.

  • Williams caught two passes for 39 yards.

  • Georgia receiver Tavarres King caught two passes for 19 yards.
