Hageman, Turner, Henderson shine on Day 1 of Senior Bowl

Day one of the Senior Bowl is in the books as the week-long process kicked off Monday in Mobile, Alabama. The event culminates with a game on Saturday, but the week of practice is incredibly important for players hoping to improve their draft position.

Three Minnesotans stood out on the first day. Miami offensive tackle Seantrell Henderson (Cretin-Derham Hall), North Dakota State lineman Billy Turner (Mounds View) and Gophers defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman (Minneapolis Washburn) stole the show.

SB Nation reported that former Vikings head coach Mike Tice, who now works for the Atlanta Falcons, got Henderson to jump offsides a few times, but that was offset by Henderson's multitude of power moves. He "stonewalled" talented pass rushers throughout the practice.

Turner is a starting lineman for three-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State. He was playing against FBS competition – a higher level of competition – but he fit right in. He performed with skill and strength at both the guard and tackle positions. Rob Rang of CBS Sports said Turner was arguably the most impressive lineman of the day.

Rang's co-worker Dane Brugler took it one step further, writing this: "If Turner can learn to consistently sink his hips and not bend so much at the waist, I truly believe there are several Pro Bowls in his future."

Here's how's Mike Wobschall defined Hageman's day.

Hageman weighed in favorably on Monday morning at 6-6, 318 pounds with an arm length of 33¾ and a wingspan of 81¾; that arm length and wingspan is the longest of any of the North’s DTs. It didn’t stop there for Hageman, as he was at times dominant in Monday’s practice. He burst through the line of scrimmage to de-cleat a running back in the 9-on-7 drill and then during one-on-one pass rush drills he used a series of moves over several reps to consistently beat his blocker. He looks every part of a pass-rushing force at defensive tackle, so I will look more this week at his performance against the run. was in attendance and noted that scouts were impressed with Hageman's physical size.

We'll have a day two wrap late Tuesday or bright and early Wednesday.
