The Senior Bowl marked the NFL draft prospects’ first opportunity to prove themselves since the 2014 college football season came to a close.
The North defeated the South, 34-13, as Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah was named the Most Outstanding Player in the game.
Abdullah rushed for 73 yards on seven carries while catching four passes for 40 yards, reminding scouts that he was one of the top running backs in the nation.
Minnesota running back David Cobb also shined for the North in the Senior Bowl with 69 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty helped lead the way for the North, but he threw an interception to TCU cornerback Kevin White.
Petty is looking to boost his draft stock despite being considered a second-day prospect. White impressed in his short playing time with an interception and two tackles.
He had previously held West Virginia wide receiver with the same name to three catches for 28 yards despite being considered a first-round prospect.
The TCU product and Abdullah are both on track to be early picks if they can both continue to impress draft scouts.
