The Reese’s Senior Bowl is a chance for prospective NFL players to transition into becoming professionals, network with other people, and display their worth to potential employers.
Sometimes, though, it’s also a place to start punching.
That’s what happened during practice today, and the two players had to be separated by other participants in the bowl game.
Rayshawn Jenkins from Miami and Chad Williams from Grambling State came to blows during practice today.
While the precipitating actions that led to this point are not clear, in the video Jenkins throws the first punch, followed by retaliation from Williams, then a scrap between the two of them momentarily until they are broken up. Gotta love the passion, but goodness!
Both players are battling to prove they are viable options at the professional level, and neither is expected to be a top pick.
Jenkins currently grades into the fourth or fifth round, while Williams is rated as the 64th best player at his position and will likely go undrafted. Both players are hoping to improve on their draft stock, but this probably isn’t going to help a ton.
