Post Senior Bowl Positional Rankings

Andrew Harbaugh | January 29th, 2019

Senior Bowl week has come and gone and now it is full speed ahead to Super Bowl 53. Every team not named the Rams and Patriots is officially in draft season though and as I witnessed down in Mobile last week teams are out in full force scouting.

Players such as Montez Sweat and Penny Hart made themselves some money this past week. To counteract the positive you had players such as Daniel Jones and Andy Isabella potentially cost themselves money but at the end of the day they went down to Mobile and put it all on the line. The Senior Bowl is just one part of the evaluation process for many of these players and scouts. The real work started there but it will continue all the way to Indianapolis at the Combine and at Pro Days.

Aside from the financial implications there continues to be a lot of battles for the top spot at many of the positions. With some of these may seem controversial, they may seem like they are not what the mainstream media has but that’s why you are here at The Scorecrow. You get a personal touch with our articles, including a little Q&A I did while I was down in Mobile, and that will be evident when going through these rankings.

Views will change, news on players will come out, forty-yard dashes will be run soon but as for now let’s dive into the thick of it and see where I have players prior to all the nitty gritty stuff.
