Jalen Hurts, Justin Herbert, Shea Patterson Earn Mixed Reviews at Senior Bowl
Jalen Hurts, Justin Herbert and Shea Patterson earned mixed reviews at the Senior Bowl.
The Senior Bowl came and went on Saturday, with the North beating down the South 34-17.
Scouts from all 32 NFL teams were in attendance to watch the action unfold, and it provided an opportunity for some of college football’s best players to show what they had.
Herbert was undoubtedly the biggest winner of the event.
The Oregon quarterback showcased good ball placement and smart instincts as he led his team down the field on a touchdown drive early.
The drive culminated in a 16-yard touchdown run by running back Lamical Perine, but Herbert going 4-for-4 for 31 yards and a score did not go unnoticed.
Hurts had another rough day. On top of throwing an ugly interception, he finished the first half going two-of-seven for 25 yards and a pick. On the ground, he recorded -7 yards through two quarters of early action.
Later in the game Hurts would find Tennessee’s Jauan Jennings for a touchdown, but that did little to erase memories from the week that was.
Patterson had some early good and late bad on Saturday. He started off with a great 75-yard touchdown to TCU running back Darius Anderson. That was the good.

Unfortunately, in the second quarter, the bad presented itself. He badly missed a couple of easy throws which resulted in an interception.
Later on, in his final play of the day, he almost threw another pick.
All in all, neither Hurts nor Patterson did much to address the issues people had with them heading into the NFL Draft.
Herbert, meanwhile, is clearly the big winner from the week that was and likely worked himself into the top 10.
