2023 Senior Bowl Standouts Days One And Two, Dawand Jones Steals The Show, WR Tank Dell Is Shining

Offensive Lineman Stealing The Show After Two Days In Mobile

The 2023 Senior Bowl is in full force, and after two days, there have been several standouts. To begin, I want to discuss the notable offensive line standouts after two days in Mobile, AL.

Ohio State OT Dawand Jones 6-8, 375lbs

Dawand Jones Stock Is Rising Into the Top 10-15 Potential

It was all about Ohio State offensive tackle Dawand Jones on day one. Let's begin with his Senior Bowl measurements. He is a legit 6'8" and 375lbs who plays with fast feet. The more impressive measurable is his wingspan. Senior Bowl officials say Jones's (89.5in) wingspan is not of this world because they have never measured a player with a wingspan larger than Dawand Jones. He has a wingspan you would expect from a 7'5" individual.

On the field, which is what really matters, Jones was impressive on day one. He consistently used his length to win one-on-one matchups against agile edge defenders. In the video below, you can hear Mike Tomlin praising Jones in the background.

North Dakota State OT/IOL Cody Mauch 6-5, 305lbs

Senior Bowl coaches are trying Mauch out at tackle and guard, and Mauch is proving he can play wherever you need him. He is somewhat of an undersized player if used on the interior, but he held his own on day one against bigger interior defenders. Mauch is athletic, and it shows with his lateral movement and quick feet. He was a former TE who added more than 70 lbs of weight in college. Mauch is receiving legit top 50 grades from a lot of scouts and analysts and will climb up the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft board post-Senior Bowl.

Kansas State CB Julius Brents 6-3, 202lbs

Brents measured a little smaller than his original listed size of 6'4", with his official Senior Bowl measurements at 6'3", 202lbs. He is a lengthy, physical DB. Brents reminds me a lot of Tariq Woolen, though not as fast as Woolen, his length and physicality at the catch point can earn him a lot of money in the NFL.

Oregon State TE Luke Musgrave

I love this guy. He could be the top TE in the 2023 NFL Draft class if he stays healthy. As I mentioned in the Senior Bowl preview show on YouTube, Musgrave is very athletic and reportedly runs in the 4.4s. Even if he is a 4.5, or low 4.6, he's got a great short-area burst for a big TE, and he does a good job finding open areas and getting separation from DB's.

Tulane RB Tyjae Spears

Tyjae Spears is stealing the show among the RB's down in Mobile. He is proving he has the three-down versatility, is a willing blocker, and can run precise routes out of the backfield. Spears is showing off his speed and explosiveness down in Mobile.

Houston WR Tank Dell

Tank Dell is destroying DB's in one on one drills. His quick get-off at the line of scrimmage and his ability to accelerate in and out of his breaks remind me a lot of Jalen Waddle.
