The excellent crew at Moving the Sticks has their list of Standouts on Day 2. I'm glad that people are just now beginning to buy in on Alabama DT Dalvin Tomlinson. More praise for Tennessee DB Cam Sutton.

Mike Mayock of unveils his list of Day 2 practice stars

Longtime friends of the blog, Pro Football Focus has Day 2 insights on some prospects.

OS has a breakdown of standouts and stock down prospects from the Day 2 South practice. Local kid Cam Sutton had a productive day it appears, showing off positional versatility. Noted Titans fan and Hurricanes CB Corn Elder also stood out. FSU CB Marquez White was roundly criticized during his Seminoles tenure but has shown up to play this week.

Our friends from Optimum Scouting has their breakdown of Day 2 North practices. It appears that it's EWU Cooper Kupp's show and then everyone else. One guy that I need to scout further is Michigan's DE Chris Wormley. USC NT Stevie T would be fun to watch as a Titan. As for corner, it's the Rasul Douglas show with a cameo by Desmond King.


Stand-Out Players

Some of the players who stood out in today’s practice include...


  • WR Cooper Kupp, Eastern Washington - Kupp continues to turn heads at Senior Bowl practices. Though he wasn’t as good in the one-on-one period, he was one of the best players in team drills. Kupp may be able to go in the 2nd round.
  • TE Evan Engram, Ole Miss - Engram made a few “wow” plays today and has started to draw Jordan Reed comparisons. He is part of a deep tight end class and could be a target for the Titans in the third round if they miss out on the top prospects.
  • TE O.J. Howard, Alabama - On Tuesday, Howard showcased his receiving skills on his way to an outstanding practice. On Wednesday, the 6-5 tight end displayed his prowess as a blocker, too. Howard is a true three-down NFL tight end with a real chance to be a super star at the position. The Titans will surely consider him if he falls to the 18th pick.
  • OT/G Taylor Moton, Western Michigan - Moton is one of many college tackles that project better to guard in the NFL. Moton played mostly right tackle in college, though he did move inside to guard for his junior season. I don’t know much about Moton, but the Titans only spoke to one prospect after Wednesday’s practice, and Taylor Moton was that guy.


The defenders made a bit more of an impression on Wednesday, so the list is longer...

  • DL Daeshon Hall, Texas A&M - Hall is someone I’m watching a bit closer due to reports of interest in him by the Titans. He impressed for the second day in a row.
  • DL Dalvin Tomlinson, Alabama - Tomlinson had a solid day on Tuesday and an even better practice on Wednesday. He really explodes off the ball and uses his hands well. His fit with the Titans would come at nose tackle.
  • DL Tanoh Kpassagnon, Villanova - The Titans interviewed Kpassagnon after practice on Tuesday, so I watched him closer on Wednesday. He is a really big kid with great combo of strength and quickness. His technique is underdeveloped, but he could be a disruptive 3-4 DE who really starts contributing in year two or three.
  • CB Damontae Kazee, San Diego State - In college, Kazee was strictly a zone/off-coverage cornerback, but on Wednesday that was not the case at all. Kazee, who was interviewed after practice by the NFL Network crew of Andrew Siciliano, Mike Mayock, and Daniel Jeremiah, revealed that he made the decision to play only press coverage in order to show scouts he could do it. He is raw, as is to be expected, but showed a lot of potential and versatility on Wednesday.
  • CB Cam Sutton, Tennessee - Sutton has looked very good two days in a row. Today, he played a bit of safety and slot CB in nickel packages, and he had a really nice rep covering O.J. Howard in a team period. Sutton’s versatility extends to special teams, as he could function as both a gunner and a return man, and he is one of many defensive backs in play for the Titans.
  • CB Rasul Douglas, West Virginia - Douglas has been inconsistent at times, but he made a phenomenal play during one-on-ones on Wednesday. Recognizing and reading the receiver’s slant route, Douglas turned his hips and jumped into the throwing lane after the ball was released, nearly collecting an interception. Douglas has room to improve, but he is physical, aggressive, and has the ability to be disruptive.
  • CB Jourdan Lewis, Michigan - It’s no secret that the corners in the 2017 draft are really good, and that holds true at the Senior Bowl. Lewis is yet another cornerback who continues to make plays with his refined technique. This is a player I want the Titans to draft.
  • LB Haason Reddick, Temple - Reddick played mostly at defensive end his senior season and is trying to use this week to prove that he can play inside linebacker at the next level. Reddick impressed today with his ability to cover in space. Reddick spent time at both outside and inside linebacker, showing great versatility with his ability to rush the edge, blitz, and most importantly, cover in space. In coverage drills, his athleticism helped make up for raw technique, but he showed that he has a lot of potential. Some teams will view him as an edge rusher, but I think his fit with the Titans would be a developmental three-down inside linebacker. He could be drafted in the first three rounds.

We’ll be back after Thursday’s sessions to recap the last day of practice and preview Saturday’s game!
