As the North and South teams in this year’s Senior Bowl took the field for their second day of practice, this time in full pads, the competitions began to heat up and some of the talented players in Mobile began to truly show the abilities that earned them their invitation.

Here are the offensive standouts from the Wednesday’s Senior Bowl practices.


OT Josh Jones – Houston
Jones, joining the North team out of the University of Houston, had a really good second day of practice on Wednesday. The highest graded offensive tackle by Pro Football Focus in attendance, Jones is an athletic tackle with great size and length for the position, measuring in at 6-foot-5, 311 pounds with 33 5/8 inch arms.

Jones had a great one-on-one period, winning a number of matchups and truly looking like one of the gems in today’s competition.

WR James Proche – SMU
Proche was a dominant receiver for the entirety of his career at SMU. After redshirting in 2015, Proche played in 49 games over the next four seasons, putting up video game numbers with 3,949 yards and 39 touchdowns on 301 receptions. Despite standing just 5-foot-10 and weighing in at just under 200 pounds, Proche plays larger than his stature and is proving this week that his talent isn’t only evident when playing against AAC competition.


WR Devin Duvernay – Texas
Duvernay entered the week with some things to prove. At 5-foot-10, 202 pounds he’s a strong, physical receiver who works best once he’s got the ball in his hands. On Wednesday he was able to show off his ability to not only catch contested balls in traffic, but flashed his vertical speed during one-on-one drills.

QB Jalen Hurts – Oklahoma
Hurts’ accomplishments at the college level are clear, leaving Alabama with a National Championship ring before heading to Oklahoma where he led a second program to a College Football Playoff birth, but how that production would translate to the NFL level is still a question.

All-in-all, Hurts had a solid day of practice on Wednesday, completing a few very quality passes that showed off his accuracy when throwing the ball downfield.


  1. Hurts needs to keep showing that he can become more consistent.

    The WR talent in this upcoming draft is outstanding. If the Bucs address trenches, nab a WR, and RB this offense would be set for years to come.

  2. Instead of these daily articles about standouts; how about an article about who absolutely sucks and has no shot to make an NFL roster?

  3. I hope the Bucs don’t draft Hurts. He is a fumble machine and tanked at the end of the season. 4 TDs and 3 picks for last four games.
    We can do better.

    • What FA QB do you want Bucs to sign? I know you think anyone will be an upgrade over Winston, but be specific. Thanks!

  5. Good to see OT Jones from Houston playing well. We need ALL the OT’s in R1-R2 to have great workouts leading up to the draft.

  6. Load up on some BIG BOY’S. DT looks deep. So IMO get O linemen 1st round. Maybe 2nd round also. The DT class is deep. If the Bucs had drafted better in 2016 we probably would not have to draft for needs. But drafting 9th I think NOT 1 impact player. And only 1 still on the roster a special team player.
