1.) Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Justin Herbert will likely be the highest-drafted prospect in the 2020 Senior Bowl. This is an opportunity for him to solidify himself as a top quarterback prospect in this year’s class and be worthy of a top-10 selection. His big stature and strong arm have carried him, but if he shows the ability to diagnose defenses and make good decisions throughout the week, it could be huge for his draft stock leading into the combine.

2.) Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU

Kristian Fulton has seen himself fall down many big boards recently. There is no doubt that Fulton is still one of the top cornerback prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft and could use the Senior Bowl to remind people of that. How he performs throughout the week on one-on-ones will be influential to his draft stock leading to April.

3.) Javon Kinlaw, IDL, South Carolina

Javon Kinlaw may be the best player in the Senior Bowl this year in my opinion. He should dominate throughout the week in one-on-ones and will be expected to stand out above the competition. This is an opportunity for Kinlaw to make teams realize that he is much deserving of a top-20 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

4.) Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma

Jalen Hurts is a polarizing prospect in this year’s class, though recently it has been becoming the consensus that he is no more than a backup with starter potential in the future. How close is Hurts to the top-tier quarterbacks in this class like Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, and Justin Herbert? This week will give us a better understanding of where Hurts is in his development to becoming a starting NFL caliber quarterback.

5.) Terrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama

Terrell Lewis has battled injuries throughout his career at Alabama. When he is healthy, Davis is one of the most athletic pass-rushers in college football. I, personally, think that Davis is going to crush it in practice all week because I don’t know if there is an offensive tackle that can shut him down one-on-one consistently. Look for the Alabama edge rusher to make his name known and push his name into clear first-round consideration.
