The first two practices leading up to the 2020 Senior Bowl, an invite-only showcase of the top upperclassmen in the country, are in the books.

With a pair of sessions down for both the North and South teams, NFL draft experts Todd McShay and Steve Muench break down how the best prospects fared, which under-the-radar players are rising and more. Ten participants in last year's event ended up being 2019 first-round picks. Who might join them in 2020?

Let's look at how the signal-callers did on Days 1 and 2 (rankings are from Scouts Inc.).

Justin Herbert, Oregon

Team: South | QB ranking: 3

Day 2: One of the things you look for during Senior Bowl week is how the best of the best take on a leadership role. No matter the locker room, players follow the guys who are playing winning football. And because Herbert obviously is the best quarterback on the field this week, everyone seems to be following him. Not only has he played really well so far, he is taking on a leadership role and continues to come out of his shell.

Day 1: Herbert is clearly the most talented quarterback on the field, and that's going to work in his favor. The Senior Bowl is a great opportunity for him to stand out and firmly entrench himself as a first-rounder. On Tuesday, he looked natural with his footwork, showcased some athleticism and was consistently accurate. Throw in his 6-foot-6, 227-pound size and 10-inch hands, and you can see why scouts like his physical traits.

Jordan Love, Utah State

Team: North | QB ranking: 6
