2017 Senior Bowl rosters: Which players bolstered their draft stock this week?

A crucial week of Senior Bowl practices has concluded and, well, not much has changed for the players auditioning for the 2017 NFL draft.

Going into today’s Senior Bowl game, which is at 2:30 p.m. ET on NFL Network, Alabama tight end O.J. Howard was widely considered to be the top player. That didn’t change after a series of three practices where Howard flashed with one-handed catches, good size, and athleticism.

Howard could have easily sat out the all-star game and it wouldn’t negatively impact his draft status. Instead, he wanted to prove he was the top tight end prospect and that he could be utilized more than he was at Alabama.

“I know some people out there might say I’m the top tight end in the class, but nothing is certain and I want to prove my case that I’m the guy,” Howard told Emily Kaplan of Sports Illustrated.

If Howard didn’t put in the best week of practice, then Temple defender Haason Reddick most certainly did. Reddick’s NFL position is still somewhat ambiguous, but it doesn’t matter. He played end and rush linebacker at Temple but got shifted to inside linebacker in Mobile, Ala. He starred wherever he lined up, thanks to his pure athleticism and first-step quickness.
