NFL.com's Chad Reuter believes Temple OL Dion Dawkins is a first-round talent.

Reuter made the statement after re-watching the Senior Bowl, where Dawkins practiced at both tackle and guard. Many project Dawkins to the inside, displaying athleticism and power as a guard. Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney are other interior prospects drawing first round love.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah says Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick "clearly generated the most buzz in personnel circles" among prospects at the Senior Bowl.

His colleague Mike Mayock is on record agreeing. Reddick earned rave reviews at the Senior Bowl for dominating at ILB after spending most of his Temple career aligned on the edge. "He showed the athleticism to easily cover running backs and tight ends while also excelling during the blitz periods of practice," Jeremiah wrote. "Most impressively, he showed excellent run instincts and the ability to sort through the trash and find the ball carrier in team drills." The analyst believes Reddick is closing in on Florida's Jarrad Davis to become the No. 2 ILB behind Reuben Foster in this draft class.

Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick landed at No. 30 on the latest Big Board of CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang.

Rang wrote that it is "the agility and acceleration [Reddick] showed playing off the ball in Mobile [during the Senior Bowl practice week] that has his stock skyrocketing as one of the few true three-down linebackers in this class." NFL Media's Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah came away from the Senior Bowl similarly impressed, with Mayock saying that Reddick "showed versatility that people didn't realize he had." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein sees him as potentially putting up rock star numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month.

When asked for the biggest winner of Senior Bowl week, both Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah said Temple EDGE/ILB Haason Reddick.

"He showed versatility that people didn't realize he had," Mayock said. Reddick played 4-3 defensive end at Temple, but Senior Bowl coaches lined him up all over the place. "Reddick can be an inside linebacker in a 3-4, inside linebacker in a 4-3 and even line up occasionally as an edge rusher. He really helped himself this week," Mayock said. Jeremiah agreed. "He has excelled in coverage and in pass-rush drills, dominating at times. He made the most money of anyone here," he said.

During NFL Network's broadcast of the Senior Bowl, Mike Mayock said that Temple EDGE/LB Haason Reddick "had the best week of anybody here."

Reddick has been a consensus "winner" for the Senior Bowl practice week, with both NFL Media's Lance Zierlein and Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline shining a spotlight on the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder's work. Temple's all-time leading tackler for loss could be a star at the NFL Scouting Combine, too. Zierlein thinks he will showcase "some really explosive traits in his workouts."

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein is keen on the versatility of Temple EDGE/LB Hasson Reddick.

"He's got a chance because he can do a lot of things -- he can blitz, he can cover, he can do whatever you need," Zierlein noted. The analyst believes that the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder will "have some really explosive traits in his workouts." Zierlein isn't alone in taking note of Reddick's work during the Senior Bowl practice week. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote of Wednesday's practice session that "in several instances he beat opponents so badly [he] received a rise from scouts in attendance." He should see interest on Day 3 come the draft, though he could have upward mobility toward the middle rounds.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that Temple EDGE/LB Hasson Reddick "has the "it" factor."

"He was dominant in pass-rushing drills both blitzing as a stand-up linebacker and coming out of a three-point stance," Pauline wrote of Wednesday's Senior Bowl practice. "In several instances he beat opponents so badly Reddick got a rise from scouts in attendance. " Per Pauline, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder also performed admirably in pass-coverage drills. Reddick -- Temple's all-time leading tackler for loss -- could see fifth- or sixth-round interest this spring.

When speaking with Rotoworld's Josh Norris, Temple EDGE/LB Haason Reddick credited yoga for his ability to bend and turn the corner as a pass rusher.

Reddick explained that he and a few teammates participated in a few yoga sessions this summer and wants to continue that after the NFL Combine and leading into OTAs. Reddick is one of the "winners" of Senior Bowl week for his comfort in space, patience and speed as a run defender and pass rushing ability. The cornerback turned linebacker turned edge rusher turned linebacker is a possible top 50 selection.

Temple redshirt junior WR Adonis Jennings caught seven passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Tuesday's 34-26 loss to Wake Forest in the Military Bowl.

Just too little, too late for Temple. The Owls fell behind 31-10 at the half and while they would outscore Wake Forest 16-3 in the second half, they weren't quite able to completely overcome the large deficit. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Jennings opened the second half hauling in a 58-yard touchdown to start the would-be comeback attempt. This 7-154-2 effort is his best of the season by a fair margin. He came into the Military Bowl having caught just 20 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns.

Temple senior T Dion Dawkins accepted an invitation to the Resse's Senior Bowl.

Per ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., Dawkins is a "dominant run blocker from his left tackle spot." The longtime Worldwide Leader scouting mouthpiece believes the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder could rise as high as the first round depending on how he tests out athletically come February's NFL Scouting Combine. Draft insider Tony Pauline was particularly impressed with his work in a September loss to Penn State, noting that Dawkins "looked terrific in pass protection." Pauline sees him as a Day 2 selection.

Florida HC Jim McElwain offered high praise for reported new Temple HC Geoff Collins.

Collins served as defensive coordinator for the Gators each of the past two seasons. Earlier on Tuesday, ESPN's Brett McMurphy reported that he had landed the head-coaching position at Temple. Said McElwain, "[The Owls are] going to get a guy that motivates players, a guy that really understands the game and understands both sides of the ball — not just the defensive side." He referred to Collins as a "relentless, competitive recruiter."

Florida DC Geoff Collins will be Temple's next head coach, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Collins has been a defensive coordinator since 2010, and spent those years between FIU, Mississippi State and Florida. Matt Rhule recently left to coach Baylor, and this will be Collins' first ever head coaching gig. His Florida defenses in 2015 and 2016 played at a very high level. Rhule and Collins coached together at Western Carolina.

Temple senior QB P.J. Walker (leg) went 16-of-25 for 199 yards and two touchdown passes in a 34-10 win over Navy in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday.

Walker was in a walking boot earlier this week, but he didn't look any worse for the wear today. Temple, which lost to Houston in last year's AAC Championship game, saw things go down a little differently this time around, mostly because of their superb defense. The 10-3 Owls will learn which bowl they're headed to on Sunday.
