2019 Senior Bowl North roster announced

SB-roster-main-011619

The 2019 Senior Bowl gets underway next week, and the Oakland Raiders coaching staff will travel to Mobile, Ala., to coach the North team. The San Francisco 49ers will handle the coaching duties for the South team. There’s 55 players that will comprise the North roster, and it will feature a handful of highly-touted players who could end up being high draft picks in late- April. It’s the perfect opportunity for Head Coach Jon Gruden and General Manager Mike Mayock to build a relationship with potential prospects, and for the players participating in the Senior Bowl to gauge what life could be like at the next level.

From top to bottom there will be plenty of talent to choose from in the 2019 NFL Draft, but there’s a select few participating in the Senior Bowl that stand above the rest; let’s take a look at who some of them are.

QB, Drew Lock, Missouri

If you watch Lock’s highlights, one of the first things you’ll notice is his Baker Mayfield-esque swagger. He’s got a confidence about him that lets you know he’s not afraid to take shots in the game. Lock is currently a projected Top-10 pick, and could possibly wind up on the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Denver Broncos. With Derek Carr under center for the Silver and Black, the team doesn’t have a need for signal-callers, but I’m sure he’ll have a plethora of suitors as the draft approaches.

QB, Daniel Jones, Duke

Another quarterback in the mix.

Jones — like Lock — is projected to go high in the first round, and is also linked to the Giants, Jaguars, and Broncos. The Duke Blue Devil’s stats don’t necessarily jump off the screen, totaling 2,674 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 2018, but he has the tangibles to transition to the NFL level. Jones, and Lock, will probably receive a fair share of media attention in Alabama next week.

DB, Nasir Adderley, Delaware

The Raiders secondary saw a ton of new faces take the field in 2018, from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Karl Joseph, and a handful of other players in between. Finding consistency in Defensive Coordinator Paul Guenther’s group was difficult, but the unit finally started to piece things together towards the end of the year. You can never have enough depth, and Adderley is a player I’m sure Gruden and Mayock will watch closely next week during practice. He boasts excellent sideline-to-sideline speed, and has the range to contest passes against his competition, and he excels in man coverage.

WR, Keelan Doss, UC Davis

Doss will be the only player present at the Senior Bowl that's played football close to the Bay Area. If you haven't heard of the UC Davis Aggie before, he's got plenty of athleticism and size to be an NFL receiver. Doss has had back-to-back seasons for the Aggies with more than 1,300 yards, and he's versatile enough to be featured in running plays; whether it's an end-around or a post-route, Doss has the makeup of a productive wide receiver at the next level.

DL, Zach Allen, Boston College

Boston College will be well represented at the Senior Bowl, with Allen and many of his teammates appearing on the North roster. The Silver and Black have a need for pass rushers, and Allen fits the bill. During his three seasons as a starter, Allen tallied more than 10 tackles for loss in each of those seasons, and added 16.5 sacks, two interceptions, and 199 tackles over the course of his career. At 6'5" and 285 pounds, Allen is a big fella that can use his strength to bully offensive linemen at will.
