MOBILE, Ala. – Many of the NFL's top prospects will be on display here this week leading up to this weekend's Senior Bowl.
NFL executives and coaches, including Titans general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Mularkey, will be on hand. The first practices are scheduled for later today.
Here's a look at five players to watch:
Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State**
No, the Titans don't need a quarterback. But other teams do, and the best-case scenario is for some signal-callers to soar during the draft process. Phil Savage, a former NFL general manager who's now executive director of the Senior Bowl, told reporters Monday he thinks Wentz could end up going in the top 10 of the NFL Draft. Some are skeptical. With QBs Jared Goff (Cal), Paxton Lynch (Memphis) and Connor Cook (Michigan State) not here, Wentz has a chance to make a case for himself here this week.
Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama
Ragland is considered the top middle linebacker in the NFL Draft. He's widely projected as a first-round selection after earning All-American and SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors at Alabama. Ragland (6-2, 252) wants to prove to NFL teams he can play outside linebacker, too, and that's where scouts will see him this week.
Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State
Miller could be one of the more intriguing prospects on display at the Senior Bowl this week. Miller made a name for himself as a quarterback in the Big Ten, but he made the switch to receiver last season. Miller has good size (6-2, 215) and speed, and while he's still raw as a receiver, he'll get a chance to show off his explosiveness before scouts. At this point, he's regarded as middle round pick.
Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky
Spence was a five-star recruit, but he transferred from Ohio State because of two failed drug tests. He was dominant at Eastern Kentucky, racking up 11.5 sacks, 22.5 tackles for loss and 15 quarterback hits in 11 games on one season. He's a big man (6-3, 261) with plenty to prove both on the field and in interviews with NFL teams.
Jeremy Cash, S, Duke
Cash, the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a first team All-American, is regarded as the top safety in the NFL Draft. He was a tackling machine for the Blue Devils, racking up 100-plus tackles for three straight years. He'll have a chance to show off his versatility here this week.
