Senior Bowl Day 1 Social Roundup: Another Ohio State WR impresses in Mobile

10 Players to Watch at the Senior Bowl

Last year, it was Terry McLaurin who seemingly came out of nowhere -- even though he played at a place like Ohio State -- to show out as one of the top players at the Senior Bowl.

It's understandably very early in the week, but there could be another Buckeye poised to do the same this year.

Reporters and analysts were buzzing Tuesday about K.J. Hill, who left Ohio State as the team's all-time leader in receptions but hasn't been discussed among the top wide receivers in the 2020 draft class. Maybe that tide started to shift after his first practice with the North team Tuesday.

McLaurin, who went on to become a third-round pick by the Redskins and shined during his rookie season, took notice of Hill's day.

Before the players hit the field, they took part in the annual weigh-in. For the die-hards, here's a full breakdown of every participating player. The NFL highlighted the most interesting numbers below.

We listed South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw as one of the 10 players Browns fans should know at this week's game. He's not only one of the top overall prospects in the game, but he also carries a heck of a story.

A handful of the game's top players announced Tuesday they won't be participating in practices because of their respective injuries. Among them was Cal safety Ashtyn Davis, another player we listed as a player to watch and one of the top players at his position in the entire draft.

It was viewed as a bit of a surprise when Auburn DT Marlon Davidson announced he'd return for his senior season. It's looking more and more like it was the right decision.

There aren't any Northeast Ohio natives in this year's game, but there's an intriguing prospect from the Southwestern part of the state. Tight end Adam Trautman is poised to become the first University of Dayton player drafted since 1977.
