Been hoping we take both Webb and Dobbs.

4. There's been a lot of talk about this year's quarterback class being underwhelming, but I think people that dig deep into this class will like two of the players here this week -- Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs and Cal's Davis Webb. Both bring athleticism and the ability to spin the ball really well. They've been a little inconsistent here in Mobile. They're developmental players. The teams that draft them will be hopin

Davis Webb - QB - Golden Bears

The Giants met with Cal QB Davis Webb.

We like where their head is. If you're looking for a developmental prospect behind Eli Manning, you could do worse this year than to tab Webb on Day 3. The former Golden Bears star has a great frame and a big arm. "With his over-the-top release and flick of the wrist to generate good rotation upon delivery, Webb was able to put the ball in good spots and drive down the field with proper velocity," noted the Drafster. Webb faces a big acclimation process in coming over from the wide-open "Bear Raid" system.

Mack Hollins - WR - Tar Heels

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that "many" at the Senior Bowl feel that North Carolina WR Mack Hollins will be drafted ahead of teammate Ryan Switzer.

Switzer has drawn praise for his work early on at Senior Bowl practices, but Pauline is hearing that his teammate may be more valued by the NFL at the moment. While Switzer is a diminutive slot receiver, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Hollins is the type of size/speed prospect that makes scouts salivate. Pauline expects Hollins to run in the 4.4s. "I’m also told Hollins is a better special teams player than his teammate," Pauline wrote, a surprising sentiment considering Switzer's incredible kick returning acumen. "While Switzer is a dynamic punt returner, the belief is Hollins will be a special teams ace on coverage units early in his rookie season."

Forrest Lamp - T - Hilltoppers

Western Kentucky T Forrest Lamp will miss the Senior Bowl after suffering a high ankle sprain in practice.

In a statement, Lamp's agent Erik Burkhardt indicated that Lamp would have played through the injury had it occurred during the season. Burkhardt wrote that the ankle "swelled up on him pretty significantly." It's too early to speculate about Lamp's Combine availability, but it's a situation to monitor. Lamp will remain in Mobile to participate in the non-playing aspects of the all-star event. Lamp, ranked No. 30 overall by CBS Sports, has drawn comparisons to Dallas Cowboys All-Pro guard Zack Martin.

Forrest Lamp - T - Hilltoppers

Draftwire reports that Western Kentucky T Forrest Lamp (ankle) met with the Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans at the Senior Bowl.

Lamp is staying busy despite suffering a high ankle sprain in practices. That injury will keep him off the field for the game on Saturday. Lamp is currently projected as a late-Rd. 1 or early-Rd. 2 prospect.

Eddie Vanderdoes - DL - Bruins

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says UCLA DL Eddie Vanderdoes "exceeded [expectations] in every way" at Senior Bowl practices.

"He beat blockers off the snap with his great first step, bull-rushed them off the line with surprising power and also showed terrific hand technique to keep opponents away from him," Pauline wrote. "More than anything else, Vanderdoes outplayed and outhustled everyone he lined up against." The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder plays a power game and was far better against the run than pass in college.

Ryan Anderson - LB - Crimson Tide

Alabama edge rusher Ryan Anderson returned to practices after suffering a thumb injury during Tuesday’s Senior Bowl session.

Anderson's left hand is wrapped up. It appears as though the injury won't limit Anderson’s availability for Saturday's game.

Taylor Moton - T - Broncos

Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton "has held up well as an offensive tackle" during Senior Bowl practices, writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Sticking on the outside would be huge for Moton's Draft stock. He played right tackle during his first two years in Kalamazoo before kicking inside to guard as a junior. Moton (6-foot-5 3/8, 330 pounds) returned to right tackle as a senior, but the Senior Bowl had listed him as a guard, a position some scouts think he's better equipped to play. "A move inside to a smaller area will not help mask some of his issues, but he is a wide, well-built mover who can anchor and use his raw power to dominate rushers once he engages," Brugler wrote. "Entering the week, Moton was viewed by scouts as a top-100 prospect, and that shouldn't change based on his practices so far."

Amba Etta-Tawo - WR - Orange

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer and his staff met with Syracuse WR Amba Etta-Tawo on Wednesday.

The Purple need some WR depth with Adam Thielen a restricted free agent and Jarius Wright, Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson all facing uncertain futures. The 23-year-old Etta-Tawo, per CBS, boasts "strong finishing skills at the catch point, finding the ball well in flight and showing natural ball skills on 50-50 passes." Etta-Tawo dislocated his finger at Wednesday's Senior Bowl practices. Matt Waldman of the Rookie Scouting Portfolio reported that the medical staff initially had difficulty getting the finger re-set. They taped Etta-Tawo's damaged digit to another and had him wear a glove. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Etta-Tawo continued to practice. "He dropped one of the first targets after this injury at the sideline, but gradually adjusted to the injury," Waldman wrote. "He earned separation up the seam with a rip move and made a fine reach for the ball on an out route later in the session. His stems and breaks need to tighten up."

John Johnson - DB - Eagles

Per Scouts Inc., Boston College DB John Johnson has been a standout at Senior Bowl practices and is the "smoothest safety down here in terms of movement skills."

"He catches the ball well and gets in and out of his breaks without a hitch," Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl wrote on a shared byline. The crew projects Johnson as simply "a versatile defensive back in the NFL." Johnson played both corner and safety in 2015, but he was a full-time safety this past season. "The coaches put him through some cornerback drills Wednesday, and he did a nice job," Muench and Weidl wrote. "We're interested to dive more into his tape after an impressive first two days of practice."

Tre'Davious White - DB - Tigers

NFL.com's Chase Goodbread relays that the ankle injury suffered by LSU CB Tre'Davious White is not considered serious.

White tweaked his ankle during Senior Bowl practice this week and while it looks like he is being shut down for the remainder of the week, the 6-foot-3, 197-pounder should be fine for the rest of the draft process barring an unexpected development. He is a good bet to land as a Day 2 selection in this spring's draft.

Cooper Kupp - WR - Eagles

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp "[caught] everything thrown his way" during Wednesday's Senior Bowl practice.

"He ran sharp routes to create separation and showed excellent reaction time on short passes thrown outside his body," notes Pauline. "Kupp was consistently in position to make catches after exiting his route breaks and had an overall excellent showing." The analyst grades him as a potential second-round pick this spring. He's not alone in taking note of Kupp's work during the Senior Bowl practice week, as NFL Media's Mike Mayock has been similarly impressed. Mayock believes Kupp will find success early on in his NFL career.

Haason Reddick - LB - Owls

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that Temple EDGE/LB Hasson Reddick "has the "it" factor."

"He was dominant in pass-rushing drills both blitzing as a stand-up linebacker and coming out of a three-point stance," Pauline wrote of Wednesday's Senior Bowl practice. "In several instances he beat opponents so badly Reddick got a rise from scouts in attendance. " Per Pauline, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder also performed admirably in pass-coverage drills. Reddick -- Temple's all-time leading tackler for loss -- could see fifth- or sixth-round interest this spring.

Jonnu Smith - TE - Golden Panthers

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell relays that one NFL scout called FIU TE Jonnu Smith a "Charles Clay clone" during Senior Bowl practice on Wednesday.

Campbell relays that the scout is high on Smith's "toughness, hands and versatility." In 11 games this past season, the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder logged a 42-506-4 receiving line. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views him as an undrafted free agent at this juncture, but he could certainly climb into the late-round conversation if he continues to impress during the pre-draft process.
