Bengals to Coach Senior Bowl

Recommended Posts

On the front, Houston's offensive tackle Josh Jones performed as advertised, routinely engulfing smaller defenders with his long arms and inherent power to control them at the point of attack. UConn's Matt Peart held his own on the edge after getting beat to the outside early, and South Carolina State behemoth Alex Taylor utilized his ridiculous 36-plus inch arms to widen the arc for edge rushers en route to the quarterback in one-on-one drills. 

 

A couple blurbs on some tackles projected 2nd-3rd round.

Let's look at how the signal-callers did on Day 1 (rankings are from Scouts Inc.):

Justin Herbert, Oregon

Team: South | QB ranking: 3

Herbert is very clearly the most talented quarterback on the field, and that's going to work in his favor. The Senior Bowl is a great opportunity for him to stand out and firmly entrench himself as a first-rounder. On Tuesday, he looked natural with his footwork, showcased some athleticism and was consistently accurate. Throw in his 6-foot-6, 227-pound size and 10-inch hands, and you can see why scouts like his physical traits.

Steelers may have screwed themselves because they need a QB Herbert would be perfect target but Miami has their first round pick because they traded for the Safety.   They also in a panic last year traded up in front of the Bengals because they were paranoid that the Bengals were going to select Bush(wrong) and they used their 2020 third round pick as part of the deal.

So it's quite a jump and may not have anything to deal to get that high.      Both those defenders were productive as rookies for them.

No first round pick for the Steelers really does hurt them in terms of dreaming on grabbing Herbert or Love.

Josh Jones reportedly kicking butt again on Day 2. 

 

Follow up up on this some scouts saying Josh Jones more impressive than Tyus Howard last year at Senior Bowl.

Tyus Howard went round 1 to Texans in 2019 draft.

Hobs with a piece on some OTs down in Mobile.

https://www.bengals.com/news/quick-hits-o-line-summit-grades-not-trades-return-of-willie

From Tobin’s comments it doesn’t sound like they will be in a hurry to take an OT this year.

Got the same thought.   That piece talked more about LBs and Defense. 

If it plays out that way then Price, Jordan, Johnson, Williams can't be a pile of shit like it was last year.    Those young OL have to step up.

My confidence is low.

Damn, Tobin’s really blabbing on about ticket sales.  

Maybe after all these years his seat is getting a little warm.

INSIDE MOVES: Kentucky guard Logan Stenberg came in with a sterling rep of toughness and power as a guy that could potentially go as high as the second round and he did nothing to diminish those credentials on Saturday playing both sides. The scouts have to decide if his pass-blocking is good enough to get into the second round and if Saturday was a fair enough test. But he put a good practice week on tape.

"We had five guys in the second half, so that was tough but I think I played well and proved I could learn an offense in less than a week and execute at a high level," Stenberg said.

 

It was a homecoming of sorts for a Wildcat who went north. Stenberg grew up about five hours away in Madison, Ala., ("I visited Kentucky and really liked the line coach") and he figures he had about 18 people in the stands.

Good to hear.    Kentucky has stepped up it's recruiting under Stoops their line has been awesome in the SEC the past couple years.    This past year they basically had a WR playing QB because of injury and ran it 90% of the time and no one really could stop them.     

This guy would be a nice add after having a good Senior bowl.
