Senior Bowl Recap: Derek Carr, Crockett Gillmore, David Fales Excel

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The South squad had a comfortable victory this afternoon, and several Mountain West players contributed to the winning efforts.

Derek Carr and the South team put together a strong performance in Mobile, Ala., winning 20-10 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium and perhaps cementing his first-round value in the process. However, several other Mountain West players may have improved their draft stock, as well.

Carr was the first of the South quarterbacks to take the field and also saw action in the fourth quarter. He acquitted himself well, finishing 7-of-11 for 45 yards and a touchdown to former Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore. Gillmore, a late addition to the proceedings, led the South by hauling in five catches for 61 yards and has earned praise.

From NFL.com's Bucky Brooks on Gilmore:

He complemented his impressive performance as a pass catcher, with a strong showing as a blocker on the edge. He repeatedly sealed the corner on perimeter runs and effectively neutralized his assigned defender on power plays between the tackles.

However, Carr may not have been the best MWC quarterback on Saturday. San Jose State's David Fales, who also played on the South team, rebounded from illness early in the week and lukewarm reviews about his arm strength to lead all QBs with 104 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

On the North side, former Wyoming receiver Robert Herron had a quiet afternoon with only one catch on three targets for 12 yards. Utah State cornerback Nevin Lawson followed up a solid performance in the East-West Shrine Game with an interception.
