Practice week at the Senior Bowl is all about identifying the top two or three players. It's a great setting to determine how prospects respond to competition and who can thrive in an NFL-type environment. Two players have definitely answered that challenge.

Oklahoma wide receiver Mark Clayton has been the best offensive player on the field. He has great feet, runs good routes and has phenomenal hands. He completely schooled Howard DB Ronald Bartell Jr. Clayton is not real tall or fast, but he is quick and ready to play. He is solidifying himself as a late first-round pick.
