The Reese’s Senior Bowl presents a great opportunity for players to showcase themselves to NFL teams and improve their draft stock.
One player who took full advantage of that opportunity was Oklahoma defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey.
Winfrey followed up an impressive week of practice with a dominant performance in the Senior Bowl and was awarded the game’s MVP award after recording five tackles, three tackles for loss, and two sacks.
“I just wanted to show that I’m one of the most dominant defensive players in the country,” Winfrey said as he accepted the MVP trophy after the game.
Perrion Winfrey’s performance throughout the week had NFL Draft and college football media raving.
Even Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy came away impressed by Winfrey’s passion for the game.
Winfrey definitely improved his draft stock, and his performance may have even catapulted him into first round consideration.
Winfrey will next look to carry the momentum he created in the Senior Bowl into the NFL Combine, which begins March 1.
