Potential replacement Kirk Cousins ​​impresses on first day of Senior Bowl practice

Potential replacement for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​shined on his first day of practice at the Senior Bowl.

The first day of Senior Bowl practice sessions comes on Tuesday, February 1 from Mobile, Ala., where NFL Draft prospects look to boost their stock against NFL teams. One group of positions that will be most likely to be under the microscope is the midfield group, as there is no consensus top choice.

The Minnesota Vikings could be a team eyeing a quarterback in the NFL Draft, as they have a new general manager at Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and are about to hire a new head coach.

One quarterback who impressed on the first day of Senior Bowl practice was North Carolina’s Sam Howell, as evidenced by tweets from those present.

Before the start of the 2021 season, it is widely believed that Howell will be one of the top promising defenders in the class of 2022. That is considering he is about to have a second year where he throws 3,586 size, 30 touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 68.3% of his passes. But he is coming out of a season where his production has slowed a bit and Tar Heels ended the season with a 6-7 record.

In 12 games, Howell completed 62.5% of his passes for 3,056 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Based on a strong first day of practice, Howell’s stock could continue to rise if he continues to impress throughout the pre-draft.

When it comes to the Vikings, they have Cousins ​​under contract for an extra season. This veteran is set to hit the $45 million cap and earn a base salary of $35 million. The only way Minnesota can free up cap space is through trading, which will free up $35 million, each Spotrac. However, as a result, they will eat 10 million dollars of dead money.

Who knows if the Vikings will continue to give him up and if there is a team interested in buying him back. But, with a new head coach arriving in Minnesota, they will no doubt want to have their favorite defender in the room.

The Vikings kept the 12th overall pick in the first round, putting them in a position to exercise a quarter of their pick, whether it was Howell or one of the other top quarterbacks in the draft class.
