Aarion Penton - DB - Tigers

Missouri CB Aarion Penton has been added to the Senior Bowl.

Penton just finished with the East-West Shrine week and will take the short flight over to Mobile, Alabama. Penton has ball skills and is not afraid to play in close coverage, but due to his height he likely projects in the slot for many teams.

Antonio Garcia - T - Trojans

Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Troy T Antonio Garcia is the top player attending the Senior Bowl at the start of the week.

It is a huge week for the Troy left tackle. He is not currently listed among the top offensive lineman in this draft, but Norris believes that changes this week. He will face off against premiere edge rushers play after play. Garcia's tape against Clemson is one of the best in this class, and his other games are on that same level. Garcia might shine as a pass protector, but he also loves to finish runs with an aggressive mentality.

Pat Mahomes - QB - Red Raiders

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that "the quarterback most intriguing to scouts" at the Senior Bowl is Texas Tech QB Pat Mahomes.

"His arm strength, general accuracy and upside has many believing he could jump into the second round if he throws and interviews well during the combine, Pro Day and individual workouts," Pauline writes. The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder was as prolific as they come during his time with the Red Raiders, throwing for 11,252 yards (63.5% completions) with a 93/29 TD/INT ratio over the course of three seasons. He will need to adjust as he moves on from Tech's Air Raid system, but the intrigue is very much there for a Day 2 selection.

Lamp got hurt. Everyone projects him better at G than OT.

Dan Feeney - G - Hoosiers

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says Indiana G Dan Feeney "dominated everyone he faced" at Monday's Senior Bowl practices.

"Feeney showed great power, intensity and did not give up an inch to opponents," Pauline wrote. "He blocked with great technique, intensity and looked every part of a top-42 pick today." An AFC scout speaking to NFL.com in November about the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Feeney was less generous due to questions about his strength. "I just question his power at the point. I think he's a zone blocker. You don't draft those guys early," the scout said.

Taywan Taylor - WR - Hilltoppers

Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks Western Kentucky WR Taywan Taylor's game is "on the same spectrum as John Brown['s]."

"He can get downfield, adjust to off-target passes, win after the catch and even shows a willingness to go up for the ball, even if he doesn't always win in that area," Norris wrote of Taylor. Norris is exceedingly high on Taylor, ranking him as the Senior Bowl's fourth-best prospect. Our analyst spoke to a director of college scouting at Shrine Games practices about Taylor. The response?: "You are looking in the right place."

O.J. Howard - TE - Crimson Tide

Alabama TE O.J. Howard displayed the skills of a "potential top-10 pick" in Tuesday's Senior Bowl practices, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"The Crimson Tide tight end started the day with a one-handed grab on an errant pass and continued his momentum throughout the day, avoiding drops and consistently catching the ball away from his frame," Pauline wrote. "He did a nice job tracking and adjusting to underthrown deep balls, used his speed to get open up the seam for an easy touchdown catch and added another one-handed grab for good measure." The 6-foot-6, 251-pound Howard is one of the three-best prospects at the Senior Bowl. He's been comped to Jimmy Graham.

A potential backup player for Buckner and Armstead; if he's there in the late rounds:

Tanoh Kpassagnon - DL - Wildcats

The Giants met with Villanova DE Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Giants general manager Jerry Reese is in attendance at the Senior Bowl, an event Kpassagnon is participating in. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Kpassagnon logged 21.5 TFL, 11 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles last season. "Evaluators believe that Kpassagnon is raw, but that the skill set is there with a lot of upside to develop," Walter Football noted in a scouting report. "Sources say that Kpassagnon is a perfect fit as a five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 defense."

I really like Montravious Adams. I saw two Auburn games this year and he was killing them out there. Dude could really move. He would make an awesome DE for us in our scheme, but unfortunately he's going to end up getting drafted too early in the draft for us to even consider adding yet another 3 technique end...
