Scouts are torn on whether Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is more Johnny Manziel or Russell Wilson, but one AFC evaluator expects him to be a high pick despite the doubts surrounding the 2017 Heisman Trophy victor.

"It's fun. He's a fiery competitor", Wyoming's Allen said.

John Elway, the Broncos Hall of Famer and general manager; Gary Kubiak, his backup-turned-right-hand man; Dan Marino, the Miami Dolphins Hall of Famer and current adviser; and John Lynch, a Broncos Ring of Famer and current San Francisco 49ers GM, all stood within arm's reach of one another to view Day 2 of practice for the Senior Bowl. "Obviously we've seen what everyone else has seen, what he can do on the field and the type of player that he is". Everything for my team and the coaching staff.

"That's why we had a top-three, top-four offense in the country each year because we got progression reads", Mayfield said. So this definitely can be an important week for him. Mayfield and Allen were the second and third quarterbacks off the board in a recent CBS Sports mock draft. He did enjoy working with the Broncos coaches.

"Mom's not doing too great", Mayfield said.

The star power of this years Senior Bowl is at quarterback for the North squad.

Ohio State fans were not happy about Mayfield's flag antics after the game.

Don't Miss This Celestial Triplet: a Blue Moon, Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in between the Earth and the sun, blocking all or part of the sun in the process. This rare event on January 31 - a blue supermoon - gets rarer still, because there will also be a lunar eclipse .

Others on the radar are USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen and possibly one more.

The South, meanwhile has a stable of quarterbacks including Kyle Lauletta (Richmond), Kurt Benkert (Virginia), Brandon Silvers (Troy) and Mike White (Western Kentucky).

The practices are the primary focus of National Football League teams but Virginia's Bengert says winning matters, too. "We'll look at all of the holes that we do have, see what's available and also how everything fits with what we want to do and the value that's there. That will be the focus until we get to the Combine". "We're looking to win that game and we're practicing with a competitive nature and it's getting fierce out here". UTSA defensive end Marcus Davenport is a potential high first-round pick though he's not a national name - yet. "It's fun to see them go make some plays". The Broncos will have plenty of time this week to evaluate the offensive tackles at the Senior Bowl.

"That gives hope to a lot of Group of Five running backs or a lot of Group of Five players", Penny said.

So which side of the line should you back in the 2018 Senior Bowl?

In fact, he was reminded of that before a Senior Bowl practice, according to a very amusing account from Sports Illustrated. I've always held myself to that so wherever I land, a chance to play football is a dream come true for me. "Its helped me through my career, and I think I could play guard, too". You can only be in certain formations.

First off, let's dispel the comparison between the two quarterbacks. If a team trails by 20-plus points when it scores it keeps the ball.
