Senior Bowl practice for 2022 NFL draft: Best quarterbacks, standouts, sleepers and nuggets to know

Day 1 of practices at the 2022 Senior Bowl, an invite-only showcase of the top upperclassman NFL draft prospects in the country, is complete, with both the National team, coached by the New York Jets, and the American team, coached by the Detroit Lions, each having a session with their groups in Mobile, Alabama. It was the first chance to see six of the 2022 class' top seven quarterbacks compete against each other.

Which quarterbacks performed well, and which were underwhelming? Which under-the-radar prospects impressed NFL teams? And who are the prospects who need to improve the rest of the week? Here are my thoughts from Day 1, including a few quick-hit nuggets from both practices.

There are two more two-hour padded sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, with coverage at 12:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU/ESPN App, and then 3 p.m. ET on ESPN2/ESPN App. The game is slated for Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
