The 2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl happened over the weekend, and a few players made some extra money, a few opened some eyes, and a few answered some questions that many wanted to know. The North team got the win over the South team. But the score isn’t important in this game rather than the individual play by the players playing in the game.
The offensive line play was pretty solid in the game, so when a D-lineman from either team broke free, it was a well deserve play. Besides Drew Lock, the quarterback play wasn’t anything to get excited about. A lot of over thrown passes and risky throws, but remember the quarterbacks and receivers had a week to get accustom to each other. So take the results with a grain of salt when you consider the quarterbacks in this game.
The guys that you really want to see are the defensive play and the offensive line. One of the guys who was all over the field was Miami Safety Jaquan Johnson. He had 6 solo tackles, but he was everywhere when he was on the field. Jaquan was the heart and soul of the secondary for the Miami Hurricanes. Jaquan at 5’11 195 lbs, is a solid safety that can play sideline to sideline. He is a very analytical player who studies the game very well. He’s even watched film with one of the greatest safeties in NFL history and Miami Hurricane, Ed Reed. Reed came out of Miami at 5’11 200 lbs, so if Jaquan can continue to develop and stay in the film room like Ed Reed did throughout his NFL career, Johnson could have a long NFL career.
The 2019 Senior Bowl will have several alum drafted in this years 2019 NFL Draft, so I look forward to seeing many of these players here their name called.
