South Practice Recap - Wednesday


By Doug Lancy on 01-23-2013

I was looking forward to another day with the South squad, as I felt they still had much to prove. Some players that stood out for me today are RB Stepfan Taylor, WR Quinton Patton, OL Lane Johnson, 


  • QB Landry Jones (Oklahoma) - Needs to develop rhythm with his receivers as his throws, although accurate, were often poorly timed. A good OC can help Jones succeed, but the wrong one may ask too much from Jones initially. More a developmental prospect.
  • QB EJ Manuel (Florida St) - Was very up and down today, at times looking very efficient and others where he was erratic.
  • QB Tyler Wilson (Arkansas) - Shows good mobility with the ability to throw a nice ball on the run. Has a pretty good sense of timing, but has some accuracy concerns.
  • RB Mike Gillislee (Florida) - Not as polished as Taylor, Gillislee is still impressing people here. He's a definite scoring threat with nice speed and a good juke move.
  • RB Mike James (Miami) - Added late, is still getting up to speed but showed he's a willing blocker. Needs to better attack holes, not a decisive runner.
  • RB Stepfan Taylor (Stanford) - Proving to be a complete back with good burst through the hole, great leverage in blocking and soft hands.
  • FB Tommy Bohanon (Wake Forest) - A good blocker, more of a true fullback that can block, run and catch.
  • WR Tavarres King (Georgia) - Looks to be an outside receiver in the NFL with good speed, a nice cut and the ability to keep his feet in bounds.
  • WR Cobi Hamilton (Arkansas) - Poor route runner but a willing blocker downfield.
  • WR Quinton Patton (Louisiana Tech) - Is emerging as the best receiver on the south with great hands and excellent route running. Needs to work on his strength for blocking and getting away from press coverage.
  • WR Conner Vernon (Duke) - Is a slot receiver only.
  • WR Terrance Williams (Baylor) - A long strider whose best plays are made downfield where he can use his leaping and tracking skills to beat defenders.
  • TE Vance McDonald (Rice) - Very athletic tight end prospect who can really make plays against linebackers and safeties. Needs to keep his concentration on every play.
  • TE Mychal Rivera (Tennessee) - Not much of a blocker, but a great receiving tight end who can run multiple routes, catches the ball with his hands and can take the hits.
  • TE Michael Williams (Alabama) - A blocker first, Williams is still developing as a receiver, but his size and strength could make him a nice redzone target.
  • OL Oday Aboushi (Virginia) - Played some tackle and guard, and has a good side step, but needs to be more aggressive.
  • OL Terron Armstead (Arkansas-Pine Bluff) - A late arrival, Armstead has a huge frame that has drawn scouts attention.
  • OL DJ Fluker (Alabama) - Pulled out because of injury
  • OL Lane Johnson (Oklahoma) - Best tackle on the South and battling with Fisher for best tackle at the Senior Bowl.
  • OL Jordan Mills (Louisiana Tech) - Played a little high today, but still holds his ground.
  • OL Xavier Nixon (Florida) - Decent footwork, but needs to sustain better.
  • OL Brian Schwenke (California) - Good blocking at center position, can hold his own against most defenders.
  • OL Larry Warford (Kentucky) - Is a strong blocker that holds the point of attack and has the ability to pull getting around the edge quickly.
  • DL Ezekial Ansah (BYU) - Poor day, unable to generate a rush and dominated in the double team.
  • DL Everett Dawkins (Florida St) - One word: Ineffective.
  • DL Lavar Edwards (LSU) - Shows good movement in drills, but hasn't really translated onto the field against competition.
  • DL Corey Grissom (USF) - Isn't a penetrator, but does hold his spot even against double-teams.
  • DL Montori Hughes (UT-Martin) - Vocal leader on the line.
  • DL John Jenkins (Georgia) - Pushing hard to be more than a big defensive lineman, but still needs more agility and movement.
  • DL Cornelius Washington (Georgia) - Impressive pass rusher with explosiveness. Can be drawn offsides.
  • LB Zaviar Gooden (Missouri) - Great instincts with good pass coverage skills. Had a pass deflection and a pick off a tipped pass.
  • LB Jake Johnson (South Alabama) - Late addition to the roster
  • LB Nico Johnson (Alabama) - Playmaker all over the field. Fills the hole nicely and makes great tackles. Struggles in pass coverage.
  • LB Sean Porter (Texas A&M) - Has good pop, but may struggle to keep the edge.
  • LB Vince Williams (Florida St) - Made some nice plays on special teams which a mid to late round LB needs to do.
  • DB Robert Alford (Southeastern Louisiana) - Strong press with excellent agility to stick with a receiver. Struggles against deep speed and doesn't always recover well.
  • DB Marc Anthony (Cal) - Very instinctive player which allows him to make good breaks on the balls and stick with receivers. Has fluid hips and can turn and run with receivers. Almost had a pick breaking on a slant but can get pulled off coverage if he guesses wrong.
  • DB Robert Lester (Alabama) - Looks to be able to handle either free or strong safety. Needs to be more aggressive, especially at strong safety.
  • DB Bacarri Rambo (Georgia) - Looks to be able to handle either free or strong safety. Needs to be more aggressive, especially at strong safety.
  • DB BW Webb (William & Mary) - Explosive tackler, really gets after the ball carrier.
  • DB JJ Wilcox (Georgia Southern) - Looks to be able to handle either free or strong safety.
