Nasty weather today at camp.
OK some thoughts on what I saw today.
Wr's... AB wowed fans a few times taking slants to the house. He also took a go route right down the sideline and Ben hit him perfect for a long td.
Wheaton made a few diving catches one on an out and he played solid all afternoon. Ran with the 1st team.
J Brown stood out as a wr. Made a few diving grabs and just looked like a vet receiver. He did NOT return punts.
DHB flashed speed and made one long td grab.
Bryant did not stand out. He did stay after practice and looked better working on catching the ball away from his body. A few times early in the day he caught passes against his body and you could hear it hit his pads. He had one easy drop.
Moore runs good routes and caught everything tossed his way today.
Moye showed ok for himself.
Wheaton and J Brown stayed very late after practice and just took a bunch of extra reps.
Qb's for the most part were good. Ben was on target even with the wind and rain. One great pick by Worilds 30 yds down filed on a wheel to Archer.
OL has two new faces who jumped out a little.. Johnson who has excellent technique and Will Simmons who had more then one pancake block one against Worilds.
DL won the battle in the trenches. Tuitt and McCullers both had their moments. McCullers got some good push in pass rush situations and Tuitt showed a burst to the ball on a bunch of plays. They both ran with 2nd team today.
Shazier plays very fast. He was disruptive in live 11 on 11. Made a few tackles for losses.
Shaq Richardson jumped a out and had a diving pick. He flashed a few times. Will Allen looked like our best corner. Blake and McCain both made some plays. Both of them were also used as gunners on punt coverage.
The safety Dangerfield broke well on the ball and made more then one big hit.
Dri was #1 on punt returns and just looks explosive with the ball in his hands. With the offense Dri lined up in the slot and in a wing position. took a toss and got to the edge and showed nice hands today in wet weather. He was a crowd favorite.
In some one on one Shazier and Blount went head to head and each had their moments.
JJ took Beachum to school on back to back pass rush plays. JJ showed some very good counter moves in getting to the qb.
C Carter got ridden out a few times on pass rush drills. Howard Jones looked like he has a burst in pass rush situations.
Shamarko made a few tackles and looked solid in coverage.
Zumwalt ,Blanchflower, Bell and Goodwin were not on the field.
Last but not least Spence who was running with the second team played well. Glad to see him return.
That's it for today. I'll get some new info to you after Wednesdays practice.
