sorry guys, this one will be much more brief, i have to run to work soon, plus i ran into an old friend and was distracted for part of the time today. hopefully others were there and can expand on todays practice.. il try and keep it to guys that stood out, or dropped off...... im only gonna do a quick sum of the offensive guys as this is where more ppl are interested anyways
QBS: today pierce brink and dimichele all impressed me, they looked really sharp, especially buck... huge turnaround today for buck, he looked like he couldnt miss today, he showed me that he does have a pretty strong arm and awesome accuracy when he wants to. receivers overall had a lot more balls make plays on today because of the better throws imo. i didnt watch a whole lot of jyles thorwing the ball, but when he did i again wasnt that impressed. he is very good on the run tho.
RBS: emmanuell marc today really stood out for me, showed great quickness, and good change of direction ability. pretty much dominated the covering lbs in the one on ones and made some nice grabs, once again this rookie camp is hard to evaluate the rbs as they are not doing any actual running plays.
WRS: today i think will franklins stock went way down, had a couple very big drops, was visibly frustrated with hmself on the field, which cant bode well for his confidence going on. i still think he has the skills, and will continue on to main camp, but hel need to get back to his first day form to be competitive in this deep group.....
dj hall continues to impress, wasnt as flashy today but the guy flat out makes plays, i love that he always catches the ball away from his body, shows he has been well coached, and is confident in his hands, will allow him to pull in jump balls and give him an advantage over smaller dbs.
kenny strickland- had an even better second day, smaller guy, but he works his tail off, a never ending motor, he layed out for a great grab across the middle today on a laser from pierce, his hard work and determination are not going unoticed, coaches are singing his praises on the field.
terence jeffers harris- also had another good day, only one drop that i saw, made a few nice grabs, what i like about him is his effort, hes not the most polished receiver as hes only seen limited action in college, but he is very young and you can already tell he has the tools to be special, id love to see him make the team.
jabari-arthur = had a good rebound day as well, seemed sure handed today, and showed off some of the atjletism we had hoped to see in day one, up close this guy is an amazing physical specimen, if he continues to improve and impresses then he could be a major factor in the bomber offense this year, he is a big boy, if he can use that frame to his advantage he will be a productive starting NI for this team.
corey watson - im really impressed with this kid. has good size and good speed. hands have been great through two days, both days he has looked like one of the better and more confident players on the field... ralph and hargeaves better be ready to compete, cause if we are going to start to NI's its going to be a battle...
Just to some up, if there are 2 imp wr spots realistically available on the final roster (maybe 3 as an extra/kr)
as of right now id rate them 1. Hall 2. Jeffers Harris, 3. Strickland 4and5 franklin/shelton, 6. davis
and so far of the canuck receivers id rate them 1. watson, 2. arthur, 3. mchenry, 4. ionnides
