5 names to watch from the Senior Bowl's North team

The rosters for the 2017 Senior Bowl are set. Here are five names from the North team to keep an eye on next week down in Mobile, Alabama.

G Dorian Johnson, Pittsburgh

Considered one of the best guards in this year's draft class, Johnson was a first-team All American, the first Pittsburgh offensive lineman to earn such an honor in 22 years. CBSSports.com projects the 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect as a second-round pick.

CB Desmond King, Iowa

King was named the Thorpe Award winner after eight interceptions and 72 tackles in 2015 and surprised some by returning for his senior season. His production dropped this past year — 58 tackles, three interceptions — but King figures to emerge as one of the top cornerbacks in this year's draft class.

CB Jourdan Lewis, Michigan

Lewis was part of a stout Wolverines defense that ranked first in yards allowed, second in yards per game and second in points per game. While the biggest knock on Lewis is his size (5 foot 11, 180 pounds), there's no doubting his production. Lewis led Michigan with 11 pass breakups and had 20 passes defensed the season before as a junior. He leaves Ann Arbor with six interceptions, 116 tackles and 37 pass breakups.

C Tyler Orlosky, West Virginia

The Cleveland, Ohio, native and former St. Ed's standout played in 50 career games at West Virginia and started in 42 of them. He's a second-team All-American, two-time captain for the Mountaineers, a three-time academic All-Big 12 honoree.  He was also a Rimington Award finalist, a senior CLASS Award finalist. Orlosky was the backbone of a WVU offense that averaged 486 yards per game.

DL Chris Wormley, Michigan

The Michigan fifth-year senior and co-captain earned first-team All-Big Ten honors with 40 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, six sacks and three blocked kicks. The year before that, he had 43 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss and a forced fumble. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound tackle is considered one of the better defensive linemen and could go as early as the first round.
