Thursday was the last practice in full pads before the Senior Bowl on Saturday, making it the last chance for the prospects to show off their skills in a non-game setting. Here are some of the potential Bucs who stood out on offense:


WR Penny Hart – Georgia State
Wide receiver Penny Hart out of Georgia State had a great week of practice, and that continued on Thursday as he was seemingly all over the field making plays. On this play he beats his coverage with a nice release and goes up to snag the pass from Missouri quarterback Drew Lock.

Hart impressed all week and surely saw his draft stock rise.

The undersized receiver – measuring 5-foot-8 and weighing in at 180 pounds on Tuesday – dominated the Sun Belt conference in three full seasons and an injury-shortened 2016 where he only played in two games, totaling 2,960 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns on 203 receptions.

RB Karan Higdon – Michigan
Karan Higdon had a really nice day of practice on Thursday, made only more impressive by reaching the fourth-highest speed at the North’s practice.

Higdon got it started early, breaking loose on a couple of runs during the North squad’s early periods, and showed some elusiveness and ball skills later in the pass game.

Here he takes a screen pass out of the backfield and bursts up the field for a big gain.

In another flash from the pass game, he wheels out of the backfield and drags his feet to haul in the sideline pass from Lock.

Higdon’s accolades at Michigan go on and on, including a first team All-Big Ten selection by both the Associated Press and the coaches/media in 2018.

His 1,178 rushing yards in his senior season pushed him to 2,616 total rushing yards for his career on an average of 5.6 yards per carry, getting into the end zone 27 times.


OG Ben Powers – Oklahoma
If there’s a glaring difference between the North and South teams at this year’s Senior Bowl it has to be on the offensive line, and the South team is so full of talent on that unit that it would be hard not to shine a light on them. One of the best performers on Thursday had to have been Oklahoma’s guard, Ben Powers.

Powers repeatedly stood up defenders in one-on-one’s, a drill that’s admittedly skewed toward the defense.

Powers’ strong base and length (34 1/8 inch arms) will translate well at the next level.

C Elgton Jenkins – Mississippi State
As mentioned before, the North’s offensive lineman were just dominant on Thursday and Elgton Jenkins was no exception, as he just continued a whole week of solid play on Thursday.

Jenkins is the top rated center prospect by ESPN’s Mel Kiper heading into the 2019 draft and the 6-foot-four, 314 pound lineman started all 13 of the Bulldogs’ games in both 2017 and 2018.

Jenkins stood out Tuesday through Thursday and that performance – in addition to his play over the past four years – will likely land him as a day one or two selection when late April rolls around.’s Senior Bowl coverage is sponsored by Lane Family Wellness. Not only does Dr. Tommy Lane offer chiropractic care for victims of car accidents and injuries, but together with Dr. Yvette Suarez, Lane Family Wellness also offers a new, revolutionary, non-surgical stem cell treatment for knee injuries called Viscosupplementation Therapy that helps people with chronic knee pain, arthritis and osteoarthritis.
