Very short practice today. Apologies for posting this so late – Had dinner with the in-laws right after practice. There wasn’t much from a “competition” standpoint. I’m not sure if that’s the right way to put it, since every snap is evaluated. What I mean is that passes weren’t really contested (the scout team basically let receivers run free), there wasn’t really any press coverage, etc. It was basically just a day where the vets get their first taste of preseason action, and the rookies get their first taste of training camp with the big boys. It was the first team offense going up the scout team defense and vice versa. So there wasn’t much in the way of what I can report as far as who looks good and who doesn’t.
However, one thing I can note for the people attending camp tomorrow is who they can expect to see on the first and second teams for the offense and defense. The offense is pretty much exactly what you would expect, but if you have any questions, I’ll be glad to answer what I can in the comment section. The defense will go a little something like this:
1st team DL: Jason Babin – Cullen Jenkins (UT) – Derek Landri (NT) – Trent Cole
2nd team DL: Brandon Graham – Fletcher Cox (UT) – Antonio Dixon (NT) – Darryl Tapp
1st team LB: Mychal Kendricks (SAM) – DeMeco Ryans (MIKE) – Brian Rolle (WILL)
2nd team LB: Akeem Jordan (SAM) – Casey Matthews (MIKE) – Jamar Chaney (WILL)
Nickle LB: Mychal Kendricks (looks like Mychal will be the only 3 down LB for now) – Jamar Chaney
1st team CB: Nnamdi Asomugha – Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Nickle CB: Curtis Marsh (outside) – Nnamdi Asomugha (slot) – DRC (outside).
2nd team CB: Marsh (outside) – Brandon Boykin (slot) – Joselio Hanson (outside). Make of that what you will.
1st team S: Nate Allen – Kurt Coleman
2nd team S: Oshiomogho Atogwe – Jaiquwan Jarrett
