    John Congemi highlighted 3 of the players they ended up drafting...

    2) Positions That Shined - The tight end position was highlighted on Thursday, especially inside the 20-yard line. Penn State’s Mike Gesicki used his size at 6’6” and quality route running to get open consistently in the end zone. A surprise for me was Notre Dame tight end Durham Smythe. Used primarily as a blocker by the Irish, Smythe showed soft hands and better movement then expected running routes. Also, the linebacker position has a few players that made themselves know in day three. Small school linebacker Darius Leonard has great closing speed and his pass coverage on running backs and tight ends was terrific. UCF’s Shaquem Griffin again showed he can play anywhere in the field. Rushing the quarterback, covering down field and could be a star on special teams as well. Lastly, two running backs could be intriguing for some NFL teams. San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny ran quality routes and caught the ball well out of the backfield as well as Kelen Ballage from Arizona State.

    They were definitely all Senior Bowl standouts. They stood out in the game too. Although you'd have liked to see Gesicki haul in more of the balls he was thrown during the game.
