The annual Reese’s Senior Bowl kicks off in Mobile Alabama on Saturday and four Miami Hurricanes will be participating in the game.

Justin Vogel – Punter 6’4 215 lbs – Tampa, Florida 

2nd Team All-ACC Honors this season averaged 43.8 yards per punt, his highest as a three year starter

Corn Elder – CB 5’10 180 lbs – Nashville, TN

Started all 13 games this year. Was first team All-ACC, tied for third on the team in tackles, with 76, 12 pass break ups leading the team in second straight year. He also had 4.5 tackles for a loss, 3.0 sacks, 1 int, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery

Rayshawn Jenkins – Safety – 6’2 210 lbs – St. Petersburg, FL

Started 12 of 13 games this season. Honorable mention All-ACC. Tied for third on the team with Corn Elder with 76 tackles. Had 4.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks and two INTs.

Danny Isidora – OG – 6’4 305 lbs – Weston, Fl

Started all 13 games at right guard. Had 39 consecutive starts. Was named to 2nd Team All-ACC this season

Out of the four players, Corn Elder will likely be drafted the highest. Though his measurables may not equate to the level of some of the other CBs in the draft, he has a high football IQ and possesses strong leadership skills. Jenkins is another guy who’s stock may rise as we get closer to the draft. Considering the success of Artie Burns in Pittsburgh and LeDarius Gunther in Green Bay, who played quite a bit with Elder and Jenkins at Miami, this could mean good things for these two seniors.

Isidora is a big guy, but we will have to check out his combine as well considering the inconsistencies of the Miami line this year.

As for Vogel, well teams don’t usually draft punters in the early rounds. He’s solid and it doesn’t hurt that Matt Bosher is going to the Super Bowl with Atlanta. Wonder if he’ll lobby for a fellow Cane.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer. He later spent 2 seasons as the publisher of the website “Beyond U Sports” focusing on major college football/basketball. Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.
