Just a few years ago, a defensive tackle dominated at the Senior Bowl, and still ended up being a steal outside the top 10 picks of the NFL draft.

Aaron Donald has made the rest of the NFL pay for not learning what they should have during that week in Mobile: That Donald would eventually become the most dominant defender in all of pro football.

This week, South Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw has that kind of performance in mind.

At Tuesday’s Senior Bowl Media Day in Mobile, I asked Kinlaw if he believed he can become the kind of player Donald has been for the Los Angeles Rams. His response was emphatic:

“I think I can be better.”

Kinlaw weighed in at 6-5, 315 pounds at Tuesday morning’s weigh-ins, then dominated the first day of practice, tossing around some of the nation’s best interior blockers. He entered the week as the clear-cut top prospect here in Mobile, and he’s solidified himself in that regard.

Don’t be surprised if he leaves this week a top-10 prospect on many NFL teams’ boards.
