Going into the 2012 Senior Bowl, the unanimous opinions of scouts, including SB Nation's own Alfie Crow, who has been in Mobile, Ala. as a correspondent, has been that North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples is the best NFL prospect in camp. His performance in the game has reinforced that line of thinking, as his effort has led to sacks, disruptions and flags whenever he's been on the field. The offensive lineman on the North squad haven't been coming close to handling him.
Other players on the South team who have impressed are Zach Brown, Janoris Jenkins and Casey Hayward, who had great coverage on an interception late in the half against Kirk Cousins. Brown and Jenkins are projected as high draft picks, if not first-rounders, and have looked like the most athletic players on the field when they've been out there.
On the North side, playing for the team that's up 13-6 at halftime, the most impressive player has been Cincinnati's Isaiah Pead, who has been dynamic on punt returns. He's just 5-foot-9 and around 180 pounds, so he's undersized to be a running back at the next level, but he had two returns in the second quarter that went for 30+ yards and showcased his vision, cutting and straight-line speed. WR Devier Poseyhas shown impressive speed, but has a bad drop and made a bad play on Hayward's interception. QB Russell Wilson has looked good at times, showing a better arm than Kellen Moore, but has made some questionable throws when he was sitting comfortably in the pocket.
