2014 Senior Bowl: What happened at practice on Day 2?

A look at who stood out and who didn't in Alabama getting ready for the Senior Bowl.

Mark A. Cunningham

Out at Mobile, Alabama, the practices continue for the Senior Bowl. Like on Tuesday, SB Nation's Dan Kadar was there and he wrote about his observations.

Players that stood out:

Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward looked great in one-on-one drills against some pretty good receiver prospects.

Utah State cornerback Nevin Lawson also looked good, but had a hard time defending Wyoming receiver Robert Herron. Herron did well against several corners, as he was able to get separation both on comeback routes and going deep.

Quarterback Derek Carr continues to be solid, showing off his work ethic and that he "could target all points on the field." Kadar believes he is "getting there" when it comes to showing he is a first round talent.

Tight end Arthur Lynch (Georgia) was "one of the stars of the day" showing off his "stellar blocking."

Those who struggled:

Missouri's Michael Sam struggled. He is moving from defensive end to linebacker, and it was not a good day. He "was choppy in his movement in coverage drills and was out of place in team drills." Anything laterally was not fluid.

All three north quarterbacks -- Stephen Morris, Logan Thomas and Tajh Boyd -- "had issues placing the ball."


We'll keep you updated as Kadar gives more observations.
