Draft grade: Late 1st round – Early 2nd round
Keelan Doss, WR – UC Davis
The comparison to Keenan Allen in this draft process will probably be never ending, and with all fairness, this is a great comparison. I mean start with the names, change a letter and they have the same name. In all, both these receivers have the same build, are really good route runners, and have flexibility to play outside or in the slot.
This game was a great time to evaluate Doss’s skill set and he proved he can hang around with the big boys. Alongside Isabella on the North team, he recorded 4 receptions for 55 yards while making some crucial first downs. His performance was encouraging which gives him some room for “error” in the event he doesn’t test well at his combine/ pro day.”
Draft grade: 2nd round
Daylon Mack, DT – Texas A&M
It’s probably hard to find someone who’s had a better last two weeks than Mack. Mack dominated opponents in the East-West Shrine Game and continued his domination this week with his practices in Mobile. In the Senior Bowl, he put his explosiveness and size on display.
Mack took the next step in his senior year in Aggieland with 10 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks according to Sports Reference. Under the tutelage of Mike Elko, he was able to use his explosiveness and size to wreak havoc against some of the best defensive lines in the SEC.
At the Shrine game and Senior Bowl, Mack continued to show his ability to play the under 3 technique tackle position. He was disruptive against the pass and clogged holes in the running game even when the North started to pull away with the game in the 4th quarter.
Draft grade: 3rd round
Lonnie Johnson Jr, CB – Kentucky
Big, physical cornerbacks are always valued in the NFL, Lonnie Johnson fits that build. The Kentucky corner was making big hits and important pass deflections in the first quarter that made it difficult for Drew Lock to complete some passes. Johnson has sneaky quickness which could make him an intriguing prospect come April
While Johnson’s stats at Kentucky aren’t eye popping, they definitely convey the idea that QBs didn’t want to throw in his direction. According to Sports Reference, Johnson had 23 tackles, 4 passes deflected, and 1 interception in 2018. Numbers aren’t impressive, but that might not be his fault.
