With practices at the Senior Bowl underway this week, the NFL Draft meat market season has resumed. Scouts everywhere judging the tiniest of aspects or actions of any given player! Sounds fun.
The early returns for Jaylen Samuels, Justin Jones, and B.J. Hill have been positive, which is nice to see. All three of those guys are hoping to move up from mid-round territory in the draft, and they could certainly do that this week.
Look, the above is a meaningless practice play, okay, but this is the most football I’ve seen Jaylen Samuels do in a month, so I’m gonna enjoy it. JaySam has been slotted at running back for the week, and that may be his position at the next level. Somebody’s going to be really happy to have a RB that can catch like he can.
See, meat market.
