I was there for the whole practice. Where is Langi? When I noticed about a quarter of the way through the scrimmage he hadn't taken any reps, I started to look for him on the field. Did not see him anywhere, not in the pit or the sideline.
All the other backs not named White all got about equal reps. Lucky Radley had the long run of the day. It was off tackle and he went for about 45 yards, he was brought down by a shoe string tackle on about the 5 or 10 yard line. This is the most reps I've seen Lucky get out of the three scrimmages I've attended. York looked good too, I guess he's been hurt so this is the most I've seen of him since the first scrimmage about 3 weeks ago. Oliver was his usual self, which is good, but I think he had a fumble.
I think Peterson hit all but one of his FG's, this miss was from about 46 IIRC. Both he and Marsh had about 6-7 attempts, I know Marsh missed at least one from about 31 and missed the same one Peterson missed from 46.
There was a lot of special teams work today. Not sure what that means but it's good to see it emphasized. Maybe the offence and defense are far enough along to allow for more special teams work, just a guess.
Finally got to see Adam Schulz get some snaps. It was only a few in the redzone and he through a John Elway bullet to Kenneth Scott for a TD. Schulz didn't get any reps last week and the week before he fumbled away his chance. It was good to seem him have a good series. It seems I've read somewhere that Coach Whitt said he has the strongest arm of the QBs. He showed it today.
Wilson did well, took a few hard shots from the defense and bounced right up.
Hays had a rough day, threw a pick, or more appropriately, a pass to Terrell Reese. It pains me to say this because I'm in the Hays for back-up camp.
Hansen looks lost and overwhelmed. Trouble completing passes downfield. He looks like a high school player adjusting to D1. Wilson however, does not.
I think Wynn looked good. Completed a few long passes down the sideline, at least one was a TD. He had a beautiful over the outside shoulder floater to a well covered Dunn who proceeded to drop it. Dunn redeemed himself later when he out ran the coverage by a step and Wynn hit him fairly deep, can't remember if it was a TD or not, but it was a big gainer.
Wynn ran the ball off tackle which surprised be. He wasn't live but he saw a hole and took it. He's done this a few other times in prior scrimmages. I don't think he would be doing this unless he plans on doing it "in real life" when the season starts. I think we have bigger, stronger, gutsier Jordan Wynn. I get the sense that with his new found size and strength we are going to see a very confident leader in Wynn.
I'll add more if I think of anything else.
