National Football League mock draft 2018: Another projection of Baker Mayfield to Jets

However, he doesn't quit on a play and many of his sacks come as a result of him just outworking his opponent.

"The football side of it, Johnny's a special player, there's no doubt that. That team played pretty well on Sunday, so I think it's worth it", said Broncos head coach Vance Joseph. Mayfield, Allen and Falk are among the top prospects at the position in this April's draft.

"He comes out here and throws the ball very well", Denver general manager John Elway said Wednesday. Asked Tuesday whether reports of him taking limited to no reps in Saturday's contest are accurate, Mayfield responded, "We'll see". "To be able to have a week to be around him and get to know him a little bit was important to us".

While prospects will battle for a leg up this week, a defensive player without a hand made a strong first impression. "Family first. Always. Doesn't matter what the situation is, I would never put myself before my mom", Mayfield said. He did enjoy working with the Broncos coaches. While Washington fans cringe thinking of trading up for another quarterback, the package to move up to get Mayfield will not almost be as costly as it was in 2012 when the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III.

In fact, he was reminded of that before a Senior Bowl practice, according to a very amusing account from Sports Illustrated. "If he played at USC, his completion percentage would've been much higher".

USC's Sam Darnold, left, and UCLA's Josh Rosen after a 28-23 Trojan win at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on November 18, 2017. "I could care less where I end up but I just want a chance to win games for somebody". He was named practice player of the week. Gallup has been project to be drafted anywhere from the second to sixth rounds. UTSA's Marcus Davenport, Griffin and Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips.

Other names to watch for include Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington, San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny, UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin, and UTEP guard Will Hernandez. Hunt, who played for Toledo, ran for 118 yards in last year's Senior Bowl and led the National Football League in rushing for the Kansas City Chiefs as a rookie.

Asked if there's another more flattering net drill video in his future, he said with a laugh, "we threw to a lot of nets in Wyoming, " he said.

The offenses are limited in what they can do by Senior Bowl rules - and by so few practices together.

His big goal for the week, he said: "Prove that I can belong".

"I think we're still in the process". You can only be in certain formations.

Given Allen's and Mayfield's presence this week, the collection of quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl is one of the best overall in recent seasons, with Virginia's Kurt Benkert, Troy's Brandon Silvers, Richmond's Kyle Lauletta and Western Kentucky's Mike White featured on the South roster.
