    KRL Camp Notes (8/12/11)

    I stayed for the first two hours I didn't want to get caught in traffic.
    So I probably missed the last 45 minutes.


    General Notes

    - Players in full pads

    - Doug's Fish Fry from Cortland came down their truck was in the parking
    lot

    - The offense installed a ton of misdirection plays today. Both runs and
    passes

    - Moore practiced today as well as Mangold which shocked me


    Player Notes

    - WR vs CB one on one drills today here are some highlights:

    * Wilson was showing the "Revis Influence" today. In his reps you saw
    the arm bars and hidden jersey tugs that Revis uses. In addition
    you saw him very physical with his hands and using the receivers
    movements to tell him when to turn and locate the ball

    * Courtney Smith stood out, for a tall WR he shows good footwork. He
    doesn't have to gather his feet to get in and out of his breaks. In
    addition he uses his size to his advantage by being very physical with
    the CB's covering him

    * Campbell and Payne are both outstanding route runners. So good in fact
    that multiple times they shook the CB's covering them to the ground

    * Kerley shows impressive strength, against Cromartie who was being very
    physical with him he was able to get separation and still make the catch

    Is Ropati truly the beast some are making him out to be?

    All of my observations are based on what the players do in practice. If
    they can take it to the games is totally on them. After saying that, from
    what I've seen of Ropati for the past two years yes he can be a beast.
    He's 6-8 and 310 pounds and he's learned to stay low and most importantly
    learned how to bend. Which should allow him to come off the end and
    apply pressure

    Anymore news on #99 Eddie Jones the DE/OLB from Texas? Rex said he was blowing dudes up his first day at practice.

    Thanks for the update. Love your reports. Good to hear Wilson is becoming a baby Revis.

    I agree, everybody is whining about Edwards, and the supposed risk with Burress.

    Last year, we had zero depth at WR. Smith wasn't even that good of a WR.

    From all accounts, players like Kerley, Turner, Courtney Smith, and Logan Payne, even Campbell have all been impressive, I'm anxious to see them on Monday and in the 2nd game where we will really have a good look at the depth and maybe the future at the position.

    I think the Jets could keep 6 WR's this year, with Payne being a ST's fixture, it's my understanding that Westoff likes Payne a lot.

    WR:

    Holmes
    Burress
    Mason
    Kerley
    Payne
    Turner/Smith/Campbell

    That is a nice group of WR's.

    I was at practice today. I'm no great talent evaluator, but that kid from temple runs some sick routes.

    Campbell impressed me today. McKnight and Payne looked good too. As mentioned before Kerely had a really nice catch on Cromartie.

    Not really seeing the love of the South Alabama kid, #3, forgetting his name right now. Didnt look fluid at all.

    These guys may be running great routes, but is Sanchez getting the ball to them? I heard the tail end of an interview on 1050 where Harnesty (sp?) said Sanchez was pretty off today . . .
