For the second time in the last 3 years, I’ll be heading down to Mobile, Alabama to cover the Reese’s Senior Bowl! I know just how desperately my charming presence was missed last year, so this 5-foot-10 dynamo of boyish wonder will be gracing the mean streets of Mobile to watch football, write articles and (finally) consume some legal alcohol along the way.

Dating back since 2020, I’ve made it a yearly tradition to rank every single player heading down to the Senior Bowl. It’s certainly a lot of work and not for the faint of heart, but I’ve luckily found a method that allows me to scout a little bit throughout the entire year instead of cramming a bunch after the season, which makes this task a lot easier.

Some prospects will surely move around between now and the time the 2023 NFL Draft rolls around, but this is a nice preliminary look at what this year’s group has to offer. Keep in mind that I’ve watched several games on essentially all of the top prospects on this board, whereas the lower prospects may only be at about one or two games to this point. The players in the top 10 will very likely stay high on my board, but if you think your favorite player is ranked too low, don’t fret; I still have months left of tape to watch!

The Bears have an exciting offseason ahead of them, and arguably the most important period for their future is the draft. Therefore, keeping a close eye on the prospects in the most prestigious collegiate all-star game is a must. Last year, general manager Ryan Poles ended up selecting Velus Jones Jr., Braxton Jones, Dominique Robinson and Ja’Tyre Carter from the 2022 Senior Bowl bunch. Waiver claim Sterling Weatherford also participated in the events.

As a fun trip down memory lane, let’s look at the top 5 players on my Senior Bowl board over each of the previous three years:


  1. Devin Lloyd (off to a good start in Jacksonville)
  2. Kenny Pickett (had some ups and downs but went 7-5 as a starter, which is impressive)
  3. Malik Willis (still time, but early returns aren’t great)
  4. Roger McCreary (mixed bag of results, but he started in all 17 games)
  5. Jahan Dotson (scored 7 touchdowns despite missing 5 games to injury. His rookie year was very promising when healthy)


  1. DeVonta Smith (2,112 receiving yards combined in the last two seasons. He’s a star)
  2. Najee Harris (back-to-back 1,000 rushing seasons. What can he do behind a better offensive line?)
  3. Creed Humphrey (first-time Pro Bowler this year, already one of the best centers in the NFL)
  4. Alex Leatherwood (they can’t all be winners, right?)
  5. Kadarius Toney (electric when he touches the football, but he’s not living up to his first-round status)


  1. Justin Herbert (one of the best quarterbacks in the league and a bonafide superstar)
  2. Javon Kinlaw (has shown promise but simply can’t stay healthy)
  3. Brycen Hopkins (other than a very good Super Bowl performance, this ranking hasn’t aged well, which breaks my heart)
  4. Raekwon Davis (three-year starter with the Dolphins; he’s not a star but has been solid)
  5. Neville Gallimore (rotational interior defender for Dallas who has been decent but hasn’t made a big impact. Even if I was with the consensus, him over Jalen Hurts stings a lot)

With that fun little trip down memory lane, let’s take a look at my big board ranking of all 127 prospects at the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl.
