Good morning! We had our normal Golden Nuggets earlier this morning, and we’re back once again with our special edition of Senior Bowl Nuggets. The Senior Bowl wrapped up its second day of practices on Wednesday, and there is a ton of stand-alone content from the day. Countless media are on hand recapping what the North and South teams are doing in practice, and it seems useful to give people a chance to read about it.
One player who stood out to a lot of people was UTEP guard Will Hernandez. He said that he has met with all 32 teams, but there is no word yet on formal interviews. The 49ers have a huge need at interior offensive line. Quenton Nelson has been mocked to them with some regularity at No. 9/10, with their next pick coming at No. 59. Once the Senior Bowl wraps up, it will be interesting to see where Hernandez is showing up in mock drafts.
Speaking of offensive line, NorCal product Alex Cappa of Humboldt State has been impressing folks. The offensive tackle has held his own with the increase in competition and stands a chance of being the first Humboldt State player drafted since the NFL cut the draft to seven rounds.
On the defensive side of the ball, edge rusher Ogbonnia Okoronkwo has stood out. He stands 6’1, 243 pounds, which seems a bit undersized to be a defensive end. He’s been worked out a bit in an OLB role, so that will be something to watch as the draft approaches.
Here’s our links for day two, and feel free to add more in the comments. I have also embedded a Twitter moment created by Niners Wire writer Jerod Brown. It includes all sorts of video from day two.
