After a slow start, Allen finished 9-of-13 for 158 yards and two touchdowns for the North Team. But this game wasn't only about the Heisman Trophy victor.
Among them were a couple players I wrote about earlier this week who could make some sense for the Los Angeles Chargers, including USC linebacker Uchenna Nwosu, UTEP guard Will Hernandez and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. Penny, who rushed for 2,248 yards this past season, carried nine times for 64 yards. For the North team, they had Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee, and Mayfield to lead them in the first half.
LSU running back Darrel Williams had a monster game. For the North team, they were led by Vance Joseph and the Denver Broncos coaching staff.
Western Kentucky's Mike White - who began his career at USF - was in a groove, going 8-of-11 for 128 yards and a touchdown. He was covered, but Benkert hit him in stride on what turned into a 73-yard touchdown. Lauletta (6'2/217) was unquestionably the most pleasant surprise of the Senior Bowl game; taking home the MVP and throwing for three touchdowns on a variety of throws. Chicago could just as easily add a wide receiver as they could an offensive tackle, or maybe they'll focus on defense and grab a pass-rusher or cover corner.
We knew Allen had a massive arm. He ran for a first down and passed for a fourth-down conversion before faking an end around handoff and hitting Central Michigan tight end Tyler Conklin in the right corner of the end zone for a 16-yard touchdown.
Allen is a big-bodied, big-armed quarterback out of Wyoming who at first glance, "looks the part" of an National Football League quarterback, but digging deeper reveals some rough spots on the high-profile prospect that should get the Broncos considering a second chance. Then Allen threw a beautifully-placed ball to Durham Smythe from Notre Dame that made it a two-point game. But once the South took the big lead in the third quarter, the North really had no chance of coming back. Amid all the hype around him and the criticism through the week, Davenport played up to the hype. The entire second half was mostly in part dominated by the South.
One game is too small of a sample to gather a complete evaluation on a player.
But which likely Bills' targets stood out during Senior Bowl week?
