Live From Dove Valley: Khan's Camp Report
Hello Orange Crew! This is Kaylore posting from OF1 here to bring you your camp report and oh what fun we have for you. Let's start with the receivers.
The day started with receiving drills. We got a good look at the receivers and Quarterbacks.
Plummer: He's doing a lot more audible work and throwing underneath more. He's going through all his progressions and very quickly. No picks and only a few off passes. His foowork is still good and he seems pretty confident.
Danny Kannel: He seemed to have an off day. the majority of his passes were errant and his drop backs looked awkward at times. He also made some bad choices and threw into tripple coverage at one point.
Matt Mauk: He looked really rusty. Not great accuracy and didn't really impress like last year.
Bradlee Van Pelt: He was, I'm ashamed to say, very solid. His passes were very accurate and he went through his progressions well. He rarely threw a bad pass. He didn't have as quick a release as Plummer but his footwork was almost as good.
Chad Friehauf: This kid will die if a mere corner tackles him. He's a total stick. He's got a big arm but needs some touch and is pretty rusty. He needs a lot of work. He knows the right plays and hangs his head everytime he makes a mistake. He makes the right plays, but his passes aren't very accurate and he guns everything he throws. He's just really raw. He's much more mobile than I would expect for someone 6'6"
The wideouts. I'm only going to post what stood out.
Rod Smith: Still looks good. He's lost some of his speed and quickness, but has little moves to get open. Shook most of his defenders and made most catches; even ones that were a little off.
Lelie: He looks real good. He did a lot of short quick patterns, come backs and crossing patterns. His button hooks really faked people out. He made some good catches and was able to get open relatively consistantly.
Watts: This kid couldn't be stopped. He gets so much seperation no matter who is covering him. He's so agile and quick and he's easily got the best body control of all the wideouts. He dropped a few passes, but those were errant, and for every pass he dropped (3) there were several more amazing catches that he made. He had one where the ball was tipped and as he was falling he reached around to tip the ball with one arm back into his chest and grab it as he hit the ground. He was being covered by Roc at the time and all the players applauded the catch. It was pretty sweet.
Jerry Rice: Zero drops. This guy can play and play well. He faked out half of the backs that he played against and got better with each one as he learned their styles. He's not fast (duh) but his footwork is the best of all the wideouts. He'll make the team.
Jeb Putzier: Great at finding the zone seams. No drops and actually shook off quite a few defenders. They were only playing touch, and he still was able to beat a few for extra yards.
Nate Jackson: He was easily the most impressive tight end in the pass game. He's so quick and matched up against linebackers or safeties he was eating them for lunch. He was real good at anticipating the ball and would look only at the last second. His obvious weakness will be blocking, but he's really solid in the pass game.
Average performances: Stephen Alexander, BJ Johnson, Wesley Duke, Patrick Hape
Showed flashes: Todd Devoe, Charlie Adams, Triandos Luke
