5 players to watch in Day 2- North Squad

Posted: January 22, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl

After watching the North team practice for the first time in pads yesterday, a bunch of the big names like Eric Fisher from CMU, Kenjon Barner of Oregon, and Mike Glennon from NC State. But this whole process is about unearthing the guys who are under the radar coming into this event. Here are 5 guys to watch from the North team that made a great 1st impression yesterday.

-Zac Dysert, QB, Miami of Ohio, 6’3″ 228
Dysert can catapult himself into the 1st or 2nd round talks with a good week. He has a live arm and can make all the throws. Most importantly is that he is a leader and a proven winner. Look for him to make a move up people’s boards with a solid week.

-Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall, 6’2″ 204
Dobson had a great first day running routes and making plays. He actually blocked extremely well in team periods and during a few long outside run plays he was blocking his man all the way down field. He is a long strider who catches everything away from his body.

-Justin Pugh, OL, Syracuse, 6’5″ 297
A technician with his skill set, Pugh was a great blind side protector for Ryan Nassib throughout his career. He is not flashy, but OL rarely are. He goes about his job and he is someone that a QB can trust. He is also a guy who can kick inside if he adds bulk to his frame s his versatility will make him a solid Day 2 pick.

-Sylvester Williams, DL, UNC, 6’3″ 320
Williams quietly dominated the one on one drills with the OL yesterday. He has unbelievable hand fight skills and showed an overpowering bull rush to dip and rip move that he used a few times. He also is very versatile. He won reps lined up at nose, shade 1 technique, and a 3 technique. He is not scheme specific and that is a good thing. He is a solid first rounder in my opinion.

-Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington, 6′ 186
Trufant is a gamer who is scrappy and will talk the talk. He has a great jam on the line of scrimmage and is great in man press. He will get flagged for a penalty every now and then, but he has the ability to blanket a teams best WR and do it in a consistent basis. I think he would make a great cover 2 corner as well with as physical as he is.
