The first practices in Mobile, Alabama were held on Monday afternoon and there was one player who immediately stood out during one-on-one drills. Pittsburgh Panthers defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who cleaned house during post-season awards, was an absolute beast at the North practice.
Donald was matched up with Baylor guard Cyril Richardson, who many consider to be a fringe first-round pick and one of the top guards in the class, and the Pitt star was able to outwork him on numerous reps.
Every time Donald would go up for a rep, you would see someone at the Senior Bowl praising the move he was able to pull off and Richardson was often the victim.
Donald displayed a number of moves to get past the offensive linemen during one-on-ones and he was certainly one of the big winners on the day. It will be interesting to see if Donald can continue to dominate throughout the week.
Coming in to the Senior Bowl, Donald was a second-round prospect in the eyes of many, but he could watch his stock rise if he can continue to win his match ups throughout the week.
