MOBILE, Ala. — In their final real practice before the Reese’s Senior Bowl game, former Wisconsin Badgers Corey Clement and Vince Biegel performed well on Thursday. Both have drawn positive comments here in Mobile.
Thursday’s opening practice with the North was easily the more enjoyable practice of the two during the day to finalize the week of media practices.
Clement had another solid day for the North team. While he’s struggled in pass protection for the most part, he’s been improving day by day. He does everything else pretty well, so if he can shore up his pass protection, it will go a long way to helping him improve his stock during the NFL Combine and pro day periods.
Tony Pauline is as plugged-in as anyone not involved in the league, so when he says something, it’s usually worth a listen.
Biegel has also impressed this week. He’s showcased his athleticism by both participating in the coverage drills as well as in pass-rushing 1-on-1s. He’s been very coachable and that will bode well for him. While he has struggled at times in pass coverage, it’s something that will improve with repetition.
Both former Badgers made it out of the week unscathed from an injury standpoint and will look to compound a solid week of practice with stellar performances in the Senior Bowl game Saturday on the NFL Network.
