2016 Senior Bowl Week Concludes With Annual Game

Posted Jan 30, 2016

The 2016 Senior Bowl game was played on Saturday, as prospects got the final chance to showcase their skills in game-action before the NFL Combine. The South Team won 27-16.

The 2016 Senior Bowl game was played on Saturday, as prospects got the final chance to showcase their skills in game-action before the NFL Combine. The South Team won 27-16.

The 2016 Senior Bowl week concluded on Saturday afternoon during the playing of the annual Senior Bowl game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.

While the South Team – coached by the Jacksonville Jaguars’ staff – would come away with a 27-16 victory, the game was more about the individual play of NFL hopefuls more so than the final score.

South Team quarterback Dax Prescott was named the game’s Most Outstanding Player, as the Mississippi State product completed seven of his 10 pass attempts for 61 yards and a touchdown along with a 154.2 passer rating.

His touchdown pass was completed to Southeast Missouri State’s Paul McRoberts in the second quarter.

McRoberts finished the day with four catches for 46 yards along with a 27-yard punt return.

“It’s going to be real special,” McRoberts told Redskins.com this week of playing in the Senior Bowl. “It’s going to give me a chance to really boost my draft stock and show people who I really am. At the end of the day, I’m the [only] one to come from my school and that’s a blessing, so I’m really doing it for me, but at the end of the day I’m doing it for everyone who’s showing me love and support and has believed in me as well. I’m just wanting to show everybody that I really can do it and why I should be drafted to a team. I feel great being out here, and I feel like it’s just normal and I should be here.”

The South Team also got a pair of rushing touchdowns from Alabama’s own Kenyon Drake and TCU’s Aaron Green.

Baylor’s Shawn Oakman, who became an Internet sensation last year for his size, recorded a game-high two sacks along with a forced fumble.

The North Team, meanwhile, was led out of the gate by North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz.

Wentz played the entire first quarter, completing six of 10 pass attempts for 50 yards.

Louisiana Tech’s Jeff Driskel led the North Team in passing with 110 yards and a late touchdown pass to Michigan State’s Aaron Burbridge.

Driskel started his college career at the University of Florida before transferring to Louisiana Tech for his final season of eligibility.

“I want to show that I am a true competitor and I love the game of football, and that’s why I’m here,” Driskel said earlier in the week. “I’m enjoying it, taking everything in stride and just trying to get better.”

Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, who got positive marks all week long for his explosiveness, caught two passes for eight yards along with a 31-yard kick return, a  five-yard rush and a two-yard punt return.

“I can do it all,” Miller said. “Like playing special teams, playing punt returner, kick returner,  coming straight out to special teams, and you know, doing receiver stuff. I can go full-go every rep.”

The next step for these prospects will be participating in the NFL Combine next month in Indianapolis.

Along with participating in drills such as the 40-yard dash and bench press, they’ll also get to meet with teams.
