Preparations for the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl continued in Mobile, Ala. on Thursday for the third day of practices. After primarily scouting receivers on Wednesday, it appears that linebackers and safeties were the central area of focus today for Big Blue’s scouting department:


Out of Army, Andre Carter II came into Mobile as one of the Senior Bowl’s most intriguing prospects. Projected by some to be selected in the first round come draft day, Carter II has rebounded from a slow start to the week with plays like these that flash his tremendous potential and upside:

Michigan State’s Jayden Reed continues his rise up draft boards, showing off his speed on plays like this one:

On the offensive end, tackle Cody Mauch continues to raise his stock. The Giants themselves have taken notice, making Mauch a name to monitor very closely:
