Senior Bowl - South Evals Day Three

Derek Carr

Here are some South Evals from day three of the Senior Bowl, including quarterback Derek Carr, defensive tackle Deandre Coleman and cornerback Chris Davis.

South
Antonio Andrews (RB) Western Kentucky
This is one tough son of a gun. Andrews performed very well for two days, especially in pass pro against blitzing linebackers and safeties off the edge. He's compact and has terrific feet. Andrews certainly uses leverage to his advantage. He showed he can protect the quarterback. As a runner, he lacks home run speed and is a north-south runner who caught the ball pretty well. He checked in at 5-10 ¼, 225-pounds, 9 ¼ hand size, 30 5/8 arm length and 73 3/8 wing span.

Derek Carr (QB) Fresno State
I thought Carr was clearly the top quarterback in the two days of practice for either team. He spins the ball so well and can make all the throws. Carr has above average arm strength and can throw with good touch. He shows good anticipation and the ability to make those rhythm passes. He checked in at 6-2 ¼, 215-pounds, 9 1/8 hand size, 31 ¼ arm length, and 75 1/8 wing span.

Deandre Coleman (DT) Cal
Coleman is a big body in the middle that had a good Wednesday. He's huge and showed he can play nose guard or the three-technique. What was impressive was watching him make plays down the line of scrimmage in team. Coleman also has some impressive one on one reps, showing good power and playing with leverage. He checked in at 6-5, 315-pounds, 10 ¼ hand size, 34 arm length, and 81 ½ wing span.

Chris Davis (CB) Auburn
This cornerback from the Tigers is very intriguing because of his outstanding speed, quickness and ball skills. Davis closes on the ball so quickly and shows the ability to beat the wide receiver to the ball. But he takes chances and gets beat. He also shows the tendency to bite on double moves because of his aggressive style in the secondary. He checked in at 5-9 3/4, 201-pounds, 9 3/8 hand size, 30 ½ arm length and 74 wing span.

Dee Ford (DE) Auburn
At this point Ford's game is all predicated on pure speed. When he times the snap of the ball right he looks like he's shot out of a cannon and can really get up field, turn the corner and get after the quarterback. He needs to add some bulk and play with more technique to round out his game. Perhaps Ford would be better suited playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He checked in a 6-2 ¼, 243-pounds, 10 hand size, 32 ¾ arm length and 77 1/8 wing span.

Cody Hoffman (WR) BYU
Hoffman was solid once again today for the South offense. He has good size and speed and catches the ball well. He's a good route runner that can get out of his breaks and generate the space needed to create separation and make a play. He checked in at 6-3 7/8, 218-pounds, 9 7/8 hand size, 33 arm length and 78 ¼ wing span.

Gabe Jackson (OG) Mississippi State
Jackson is a squatty and powerful offensive guard with long arms and good feet. He can pull and block on the move. He's strong at the point of attack. At this point of his game Jackson looks further along in the run game over pass pro. He checked in at 6-3 ¾, 339-pounds, 9 7/8 hand size, 33 arm length and 82 ¼ wing span.

Christian Jones (OLB) FSU
Jones is a versatile linebacker prospect that can play inside or out. I think he's better served on the outside. He has a great frame and is long. Jones excelled today in one on ones against the tight ends and running backs. He proved tough to block coming off the edge. Jones still needs to work on his coverage skills. He did have a strip and fumble recovery in seven on seven. He checked in at 6-3 3/4, 234-pounds, 9 5/8 hand size, 32 7/8 arm length and 80 ¾ wing span.

Daniel McCullers (DT) Tennessee
McCullers is your ideal nose guard. He's massive and excels against the run. McCullers holds his own against the double team and will tie things up the middle to free up ‘backers behind him. One drawback because of his height is that he tends to play high and loses leverage. He checked in at 6-6 7/8, 348-pounds, 10 5/8 hand size, 35 5/8 arm length and 85 ½ wing span.

Keith McGill (CB) Utah
McGill is an intriguing cornerback prospect from Utah because of his size and length. He was solid the last two days in coverage and seems to have the ability to play in a few spots in the secondary. But he showed that in the right system he could play corner. McGill can press at the line of scrimmage and turn and run with the wide receivers. He checked in at 6-3, 214-pounds, 10 ¼ hand size, 33 arm length and 80 7/8 wing span.
