Senior Bowl 2014: Aaron Donald headlines McShay's 5 Most Impressive Performers on Defense

Todd McShay has been at the Senior Bowl practices and he has generated a list of players that have stood out on the defensive side of the football this week. Here are the players that have jumped out to him:

Utah CB Keith McGill
Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
Pitt DT Aaron Donald
Wisconsin LB Chris Borland
Auburn DE Dee Ford

These guys are standing out on the field and are raising their draft stock. Aaron Donald has been getting a lot of praise of the field this week. He is quick off of the line and is proving that he can make plays despite his smaller size as a defensive tackle.

Borland is proving to be a playmaker as well despite the height concerns.

There has been a lot of talk about Dee Ford’s speed. He has been flying around the football field.

Both corners are moving up draft boards with their performances this week as well.

The Senior Bowl has been a great stage for these players and they will be making big things happen in the NFL soon.
