CBSSports.com draft analyst Rob Rang selects the three winners and three losers from the first day of the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

WINNERS

▪ CB Quinten Rollins, Miami (OH): “Former basketball players, you could just see the athletic ability. At the North team practice, he was so much more fluid and athletic than the others on the field. Teams could be excited about his upside.”

▪ CB D’Joun Smith, FAU: “Really fluid, great acceleration and (very) physical. Showed a lot more aggression than you’d expect (for) a player who is 5-10, 189 pounds.

▪ WR Vince Mayle, Wash. St.: “He had a nice practice. Won’t jump up as a first-round pick but came up at legit 6-2, 219, has a tapered build, kind of (the) way (the) NFL wants receivers now. Struggled (a) bit with drops over last couple years, but he really caught the ball effectively and has a little more wiggle to him than you’d expect.”

LOSERS

▪ WR Ty Montgomery, Stanford: “Just fought the ball. Had a couple drops. Didn’t have great lateral agility. Faster in a straight line than making people miss. Kind of a one-trick pony.”

▪ QB Blake Sims, Alabama: “Most of the quarterbacks today were pretty bad, and Sims did perform better as the practice went on, but he was pretty bad early. The accuracy just wasn’t there. So that’s a concern.”

▪ OT Jamil Douglas, ASU: “It’s a little unfair, he shouldn’t be a tackle, he should be at guard. He’s not a bad player, but he’s a guy playing at a position (he shouldn’t) so he’s gonna be a little exposed, and he was a little today.”
