It's the last day down in Mobile, so let's get some final HARRIS HITS done for the week, both sides of the ball.
Louisville receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick continued to show off on goal line routes. Fades. Back line work. He was outstanding every time I saw one or his reps. He's a guy I knew had some intriguing traits but he's really grown on me this week in Mobile.
Another guy that had a strong week in large part because he did so well with so much - Notre Dame defensive end/outside linebacker Daelin Hayes. After winning a few pass rush one-on-one reps, he came down to cover tight ends on the goal line. On the two reps I saw, he stayed in phase twice on two different tight ends. I was impressed to say the least, considering there were some safeties that couldn't stick with the same tight ends on the same routes.
Of course. Yeboah got his revenge on a fade route during low red zone situations team work. Excellent catch on that one.
UCLA Weapon X Demetric Felton can come play for my offense any day. He made DBs look foolish on goal line routes, especially when he ran pylon routes. Just get him the ball and watch the magic happen.
Tulane defensive lineman Cameron Sample isn't built like most NFL defensive linemen but the offensive linemen struggled with his compact power and quickness all week long. He moved around a bit, winning inside and out. Very intruding prospect in a much different NFL.
East Carolina tackle D'Ante Smith has been really good this week although he's one of the lighter offensive linemen here in Mobile. When he moved inside to guard for some pass rush reps, he was equally as efficient and effective as he had been dancing with guys on the outside. If he could just get to 305 or 310, teams would LOVE him. As it is, I think he can play.
One corner prospect that I've been watching for a while is Central Arkansas' Robert Rochelle. He's been able to run downfield rather easily and I've only seen him beat once deep. I've been told that he's run in the 4.3 range so he'll certainly be coveted and this week is helping him.
Working on situations today, the quarterbacks struggled mightily. They didn't pull the trigger when guys were open and rarely pushed the ball down the field in team/situations period.
Down in the red zone, though, Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book threw a gem down the seam to Boise State tight end John Bates. Then on the next down, he threw him a stick route for a first down.
The next rep was play action and Book LASERED a slant route to Arizona State receiver Frank Darby. I mean, Book threw a rocket which Darby caught, took a big lick and scored a touchdown. This was the best Book threw the ball all week long.
During the red zone period. Bates was the target of each of the quarterbacks, catching multiple passes from multiple quarterbacks. I haven't paid too much attention to tight ends but I like how he's played on day three.
On the last play of that red zone drill, Cincinnati left tackle James Hudson had driven a defender at least 12 yards downfield. It was one of those plaus in which Hudson knew what he had done and it felt like dunking on a guy or hitting a 450 ft home run. He nailed it perfectly.
Well, it's been a great week in Mobile, as always, and can't wait for the next step in this 2021 NFL Draft process. Thanks to EVERYONE for all the support and reading/watching all my content from the Senior Bowl, yet again.
