Justin Herbert: Participating in Senior Bowl

Herbert will participate in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 25.

Herbert will have the opportunity to solidify his stock as the No. 3 quarterback in the draft class behind LSU's Joe Burrow and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa (hip). The 6-foot-6 Herbert was a four-year starter at Oregon, setting career highs in touchdown passes (32) and yards (3,471) while also completing 66.8 percent of his passes during his senior season. He also showcased strong mobility and athleticism throughout his career, racking up 560 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. He's not a perfect prospect, however. A four-year starter would ideally not have the lapses of inconsistent play that Herbert was susceptible to, even as an upperclassman. Nonetheless, Herbert is toolsy with the prototypical frame, arm and athleticism desired at the position to go along with high marks for his leadership and intelligence. It's unlikely that even a stellar week in Mobile, Ala. would leapfrog Herbert over the top quarterbacks in this class, but he can solidify his position and potentially rise into the top-15 range on NFL draft boards.
