    KRL Camp Notes (8/11/11)

    Traffic was horrible, an hour drive took 3.5 hours


    General Notes

    - Players in full pads

    - Practice ran 2 hours and 45 minutes

    - During the warm up period the DLine worked on volleyball tip drills

    - Callahan had the OLine working on blocking with one arm. It must help
    them with leverage & technique

    - Ellard had the WR's running a "criss cross" drill. A player would cross the
    intended receiver's vision blocking him out and they would be expected to
    catch the pass

    - While watching the KO retrun drills the great thing about Kerley is he gets
    lost behind the blockers. By the time you locate him it maybe too late

    - During the punt return drills Westhoff now requires the returner to have
    one ball in his hand while catching the punt

    - A lot of short yardage and goal line installation today. During the last
    goal line rep someone landed on Mangold's head. He was down for a while
    but he walked off on his own to the locker room


    Player Notes

    - The punter battle is up for grabs in my opinion

    - The kicker battle is up for grabs also. To me Novak's kicks have more
    "explosion" than Folk's

    - McElroy needs a full year in a weight program. He reminds me of
    "Pennington Light" skinny body and arm. He'll be our #3 this year but to be
    our #2 he needs to workout

    - Kroul made a good choice converting to the OLine. With the depth on the
    DLine he would never make the team because he's not explosive. But he's
    good battling with his hands, he's working at guard

    - Impressive depth at the WR position. Excluding the player we just picked
    up (Scales) everyone is a very natural "hands catcher". We'll probably lose
    a good prospect because I don't think we can keep them all

    - The rust is starting to fall off of Burress. In the reps that he had you see
    the skills getting sharper. With his long stride he gets on DB's very quickly,
    very fluid in his routes and just snatches the ball very easily

    - Impressed with Mason he's picking up the offense quickly. You don't see
    mistakes in his routes

    - In DLine vs. OLine drills some of the standouts were Wilkerson,
    Westerman, Pitoitua, Ducasse and Kroul

    - The DLine will get pressure in two ways, "horizontally" and "vertically".
    Horizontally they'll be able to compress the pocket on the QB. But also
    vertically because almost everyone is 6-4 and over, there should be a lot
    more obstruction in the passing lanes and hopefully tips that lead to INT's

    - Wilkerson reminds me of a defensive "Swiss Army Knife". They line him up
    as a 3-4 DE, 3-4 NT in a penetrating line and a 4-3 "3 technique". And he
    seems to be comfortable in all his roles

    - In my opinion Ellis needs to work on staying lower in his stance. On some
    set ups he's too high and loses leverage. But so far I'm impressed with both
    Ellis & Wilkerson. They also show good range in making tackles outside of
    their areas

    - The thing that jumps out at you about Westerman is he can combine and
    transition between pass rush moves during a single rush

    - Watched Bellore today and he shows good ability in diagnosing plays and finding
    the ball

    Great report as always KRL.

    Did you get slammed in traffic going there or heading back?

    I am planning on going tomorrow and would like to avoid any sort of traffic after I-95 rapped me anally last friday en route to Boston.

    Traffic was coming back from the complex. For some reason the highway
    geniuses in NJ closed two lanes on Route 24 as I was trying to get back
    to NY

    Nice report. Really enjoy reading them. Thanks so much.

    What does this Bellore guy look like? Is he an athletic LB, more in the Jonathan Vilma mold? Could he be an answer to our pass coverage issues at ILB?

    It took me 2.5 hours to get to Hoboken from camp. That traffic was brutal.

    Anyways, here's a couple pics of Mangold lying on the ground.

    Bellore is an ILB, I haven't really seen him in any coverage drills yet. So
    I can't comment on that

    KRL, nice report.

    Unfortunately my only attempt to make it out to camp this week was rained out on Tuesday.

    Anyway, curious about the WR competition, how did the depth players beyond Kerley look? Interested in Patrick Turner Logan Payne, and S McKnight.

    Any look at the OLB competition, the new kid we just picked up from Texas, Eddie Jones?

    Curious about the safety play, where do they have Pool playing, first or second team?

    Mangold is so important, a shoulder stinger gets a team prayer going.

    To answer some questions:

    - All of the WR's have been impressive Turner, Payne, McKnight, Campbell
    and Smith. As I said they all are natural "hand catchers", unfortunately
    I think we are going to lose some of them because of numbers

    - Westerman & McIntyre are the #2 OLB's right now. Eddie Jones makes
    an impression because he does like to hit. I'll have to see more

    - The #1 safeties are Leonhard & Smith. Pool & Lowery are #2

    Thanks, great report.

    It's great to see so many of our young players stepping up and showing promise. If they can open the season playing at a high level and continue to get stronger as the season progresses, we'll be primed for a very strong run into the postseason.

    Nice to hear about the WR depth. Maybe that's why Cotch wanted to go stand on the PITT sidelines.:eek:

    KRL, also curious about the depth at QB, how are McElroy and Willy looking?

    How does Brunnel look?

    I'd like to see him retire and the Jets make a play for a QB who can maybe even fill a role like Brad Smith does.

    If players like Dennis Dixon and the kid from Minnesota break free...

    A player that I would even like the Jets to consider, in the supplemental if he makes himself eligible? Terrell Pryor.

    We need a player maker at QB behind Sanchez, I hope this is something Tanny may have up his sleeve.

    I tried to figure out what you meant by this. I really did. But I think you had better provide a bit more clarity on what this means so I can get the images out of my head. Please!
