Senior Bowl Update: 11 Players Who Helped Themselves on Day 1

After Day 1 of practice at the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl, perhaps no prospect helped himself more than Alabama QB Mac Jones. Playing for the American Team that is coached by Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers, Jones was the clear No. 1 QB on the practice field Tuesday. He looked calm and confident, showed really solid fundamentals and was extremely accurate. If there were any questions coming into Mobile, Jones confirmed that he belongs in the first-round conversation in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Here are 10 other prospects that caught our eye on Day 1 at the Senior Bowl:

Carlos Basham, Edge, Wake Forest

Dominant all day. Very quick first step with a lot of power

D’Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan

Game-breaking speed. Good first step off the line. Ability to flash hands late

Richie Grant, S, Central Florida

Shows ability to locate and play the ball. Good range and had pass breakups in both 1-on-1s and team periods

Daelin Hayes, DL, Notre Dame

Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee
