The 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl took place Saturday, which ultimately signified the start of draft season. Talent evaluators from all 32 NFL franchises were on hand for the Senior Bowl, and they’ve been in Mobile, Alabama, for the entire week of practices leading up to this game. For most personnel executives, it’s all about the practice week, meeting with the players, and watching how they interact with the rest of their team. However, standing out as a performer in the actual game can carry a lot of weight, too.
All eyes were on the quarterbacks, and Malik Willis, Sam Howell and Desmond Ridder were among those who showed flashes of first-round potential. But they were hardly the only ones to make an impact during the National Team’s 20-10 victory over the American Team.
Perrion Winfrey didn’t exactly fly under the radar during the week, but he did get lost in the mix at times while names like Travis Jones, Logan Hall, Devonte Wyatt and Jermaine Johnson were well-deserved talking points. But Winfrey did his share of dominating one-on-one drills during practices, and he took that tenacity to the field Saturday at Hancock Whitney Stadium. He finished the day with two sacks and three tackles for loss and was just about unblockable every time he was on the field.
