2014 Senior Bowl: Standouts, struggles from Day 1 practice

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Checking in with what is happening with the draft prospects.

Dan Kadar, from SB Nation's Mocking the Draft, was in attendance to the Day 1 practice for the Senior Bowl and shared his observations of some of the draft prospects that are there working out for the biggest college football all-star game.

What did he see? Read on!

Who stood out?

Miami tackle Seantrel Henderson began his "redemption," as Kadar called it, with some very impressive power moves.

Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald "was practically unblockable," which is impressive because he is a little light for the position at 288 pounds.

Louisville's Marcus Smith looked good at linebacker, where he is playing for the Senior Bowl, rather than defensive end.

Texas receiver Mike Davis stood out in a group that includes Jordan Matthews and Cody Hoffman. He looked "more athletic" than Matthews.

Fresno State QB Derek Carr was "the South's best quarterback" of the day.

Lineman Billy Turner, who played at FCS school North Dakota State, "fit right in" when lined up against FBS players and worked at multiple positions on the offensive line.

Who struggled?

According to Kadar, Tennessee defensive tackle Daniel McCullers got pushed around a bit.

Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood struggled getting off the line and locating the ball.

We'll keep an eye on what Kadar has to say the rest of the week.
