2014 Senior Bowl: Day 4 gets competitive after most scouts have left

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Another update from the observations of Dan Kadar.

Thursday's practice for the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama had a much lower attendance. Most NFL scouts and personnel people have already left, having seen what they want to see in previous practices. However, SB Nation's Dan Kadar was still there and we have his observations once again.

He notes that on Thursday, there were more competitive drills, especially seven-on-seven work near the end zone, which meant some touchdowns.

Among the quarterbacks, again it is Derek Carr who is "a considerable cut above" the other players. Jimmy Garappolo was "decent but sporadic,"  while David Fales had a few nice throws, "but often holds the ball too long."

Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch showed off some pass catching abilities.

Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews had a good practice, doing what he does well, going high above defensive backs to make plays in the air, something "he didn't show it often enough earlier in the week."

Texas wideout Mike Davis had his worst practice of the week, dropping a couple of passes he should have.

The game is coming up soon. Who are you hoping has a good showing?
