Back home from Mobile, Alabama and with the Senior Bowl game in the books—with the South winning 45-16 against the Denver Broncos coached North—we had to dig into who helped and who hurt their draft stocks the most this week.
There were plenty of prospects to pick from, but given their expectations here are 10 names who helped or hurt themselves.
Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State
Ballage’s upside is clear when you watch his tape but the inconsistent play limited his shine in college. That wasn't the case in Mobile, as he really stood out in the three days of practice. The Colorado native is the full package; he has great size—6-foot-2 and 222 pounds—impressive burst and is a wrecking ball when he gets a head of steam, not to mention he has great feet that are incredibly quick.
The former Sun Devil also showed some skills as a receiver and could be one of the hidden gems of this entire draft class. The Broncos staff force-fed him the ball in the game when they tried to get back into it, as he certainly stood out and could be one of the big risers of the draft season. With his natural talent he could easily blow up the combine too and a third-round selection wouldn’t seem out of reach at that point.
