Anthony Gordon puts together a big Senior Bowl performance

New, 6 comments

He certainly didn’t hurt his NFL Draft stock on Saturday.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Anthony Gordon had a big day in the Senior Bowl, completing 8-of-12 passes for 69 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions as his North team defeated the South, 34-17.

Fellow Pac-12 quarterback Justin Herbert took home the MVP award after completing 9-of-12 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown, adding on 22 yards on three carries, even though it was Gordon’s team that won behind a huge third quarter led by Gordon.

Gordon, who certainly didn’t hurt his NFL Draft stock today, displayed all the qualities we got used to seeing this year: Poise in the pocket, quick release, and pinpoint accuracy. He had a couple of nice third down conversions, including this one:

This, however, was probably the highlight for Gordon:

He also had this throw, which didn’t count, but was awfully impressive:

The biggest question, of course, is whether anything he did actually impressed NFL scouts enough to move the needle on his draft status. Who knows if he did enough to change any opinions, but he certainly didn’t hurt himself.

One other quick note: Gordon wore No. 3 in honor of Tyler Hilinski. He certainly did the honor proud.
