Every week during the NFL regular season, we will track notable performances by NFL players who participated in the Collegiate Bowl. Here are the top performers from week 1:
In the opening game of the 100th NFL season, the 2017 Collegiate Bowl alum caught eight passes for 49 yards against the Green Bay Packers. Cohen was a top target for Bears QB Mitch Trubisky and should continue to see action as a slot receiver this year.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling- WR
Green Bay Packers
On the other side of the gridiron, Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 52 yards, including a 47-yard play that set up the only touchdown scored for either team in the Packers’ 10-7 win. The 2018 Collegiate Bowl participant is expected to see more action this season with the Packers new offense catering to wide receivers.
Conley had a solid performance against the Chiefs, catching a team-high six passes for 97 yards and a touchdown against his former team, Kansas City.
Cairo Santos- K
Santos went two for two on Sunday against the Browns, recording a 53-yard field goal kick in the Titans’ win.
