Which players to watch for in the Senior Bowl 2022?
Some of the best quarterbacks have committed to compete at this year’s Senior Bowl, including North Carolina’sSam Howell, who was announced as an accepted invitee on Tuesday's Roster Reveal Special, Pitt's Kenny Pickett, Cincinnati's Desmond Ridder, Liberty's Malik Willis and Nevada's Carson Strong.
Willis is an interesting watch for this weekend due to his powerful combination of an explosive running style and often slide-averse, especially given the level of competition he’ll be facing.
Georgia’s James Cook is also an intriguing prospect who can contribute in the slot heavily with his elusiveness, toughness and receiving skills.
DB Tariq Woolen (UTSA) is also under the radar this weekend, said Jim Nagy who is the executive director of the annual college all-star game. “You watch his 2020 tape, you love the fact that he's aggressive and he's willing to put his face on people and strike people. Obviously new to the position, he had a lot of instincts, things and technique stuff to clean up. This year, he comes back and is coached by a former NFL player there, and he did clean up a lot of those things," added Nagy.
