Default COCKYTALK SPRING PRACTICE REPORT: 3/26/13 (Practice Number 6)

Spring Practice # 6: 3/26/13

Practice today was kind of ragged through most of the workout. All the QBs were off
target and way too many dropped passes. I’m blaming it on the windy and cold weather
conditions for lack of saying the offense just wasn’t “on” today. There was a stretch
early in the skels when there were some nice plays, but it wasn’t the best practice
they’ve had this spring from start to finish.

Bruce Ellington made his first appearance with the team this afternoon and ended the
workout as maybe the best looking WR on the field. Before the team drills, Bruce joined
Vic Hampton and Shaq Roland fielding punts. Shaq actually got some attention during
These drills due to his string of dropped punts last week. Today he fielded about 8-10
punts total and didn’t drop a single one UNTIL… the entire punt and Punt return team
got up for a few full speed reps. Shaq fielded the first punt and with the gunners bearing
down on him, he let the first one slip through his arms and one of the defenders picked
the ball up on one hop and ran it into the endzone. Not being too hard on Shaq today
though, as Bruce and Vic also had muffed punts during this drill.

The team was in shells again today, and I’m thinking with that, there has been only one
practice this spring where the team has gone in full game gear. The skels and 11 on 11
were run identical, with the offense starting at the 25 going long to the opposite end, and
then after about 10-12 reps, they flipped the direction and ran to the short side (red zone)
taking a few snaps from the 20, then from the 5.

Dylan Thompson didn’t have quite as productive a workout as he usually does, however
you can still see the noticeable difference in the talent between him and the rest of the
QB roster when they’re running the full offense. Thompson’s first pass of the day was picked
by….you guessed it, Kelvin Rainey. That makes 6 total for him this spring from his MLB
position and if anyone has wondered if Kelvin has just been Lucky, or in the right spot at
the right time, let me assure you, this pick ended all doubt of that notion. Thompson dropped
back looking to his right and Rainey was backing up slanting to the outside in the opposite
direction. As Dylan shifted his body back to the inside, Rainey stopped and moved toward
Brandon Wilds who was running a short curl route in the middle as a safey or Checkdown
receiver. When Thompson cocked his arm, Rainey was moving towards the check down
target, and by the time the ball was released, Kelvin was in full speed to jump the route
and pick the ball of clean. There was no luck involved in that play..it was ALL RAINEY.
Thompson took a seat and Connor Mitch got up for a rep, and suffered a similar fate. He
threw the ball into heavy coverage in a short curl trying to hit Buster Anderson, but Vic
Hampton read that one all the way and stepped in front of the pass for the first of 2 picks
by Vic on the day. His second came during the 11 on 11 when Brendon Nosovitch tried to
hit Roland on a deep Go Route down the left sideline, but the pass was thrown Way Too
long, and Vic did not let Roland behind him. Hampton was in the better position to pick off
the overthrown pass on that play. Shortly after Hampton picked off Connor Mitch, the
offense got hot and went on a little streak of completions. During that stretch, Roland
brought in two passes over the middle, A catch by Kwinton Smith on a nice Seam route
in the middle from Mitch, there was one catch by Jarrell Adams on a shorter route over
the middle, but it didn’t make up for the dropped pass he made later on, on what would
have been the play of the day. Jarrell made a really nice curl and go route to get a couple
of steps behind the defender (couldn’t make out the number of the DB/LB). Thompson
launched a really nice pass down the right sideline and hit Adams in stride about 30
yards deep, but the ball went through Jarrell’s hands.
Bruce Ellington caught a couple of passes tonight and made some nice moves to elude
the would be tackles. KJ Brent got on pass on a corner route with the team running red
zone plays during skels. He beat Jimmy Legree to the spot, and was able to go up over
Legree and out wrestled him for the reception for the TD. Brent has to pull the ball in
with one hand as he warded off Legree with the other. Shamier Jeffery got one catch
but dropped another, Buster Anderson had two passes sail over his head with him standing
alone in the end zone, but managed to get one reception during skels. However, he
dropped another pass just in front of the end zone later in the full team drills. Jody Fuller
had two TD passes go through his hands during the team drills.

For the most part, the Defense was in control of the team drills, allowing only a couple of
scores from short range in the red zone drills. I’m not so sure however that tonight it was
not so much of outstanding defensive performances, but rather the poor play of the WRs
and QBs .
The first scuffle of the spring broke out toward the end of the practice on a fairly routine
looking play where Brandon Wilds took a short screen pass from the five yard line, and
dove into the endzone for a TD. As the team was coming back to the line, there was some
loud words exchanged and then KJ Brent ended up going at it with one of the defensive
players. I couldn’t see the defensive player’s number because of the crowd around him,
but the two ended up in a pretty rough wrestling match before the coaches decided to
break them up.

Jordan Diggs wasn’t as sharp tonight as he was in the last practice, giving up a TD with
some poor coverage on Drew Owens. He was also beaten over the middle by Adams
for a long gainer off a short pass play during skels. Chaz Elder continues to impress
however, making a really nice play during 11 on 11 on Bruce Ellington. Thompson
threw a strike into Bruce’s numbers on the goal line, but Elder was able to stay with
the play, come over Ellingtons shoulder after he caught the ball, and swiped it out of
his hands. This is a skill I wish all our defenders would work on. By all intents and
purposes that should have been a completion, maybe for a TD, but Elder refused
to give up on the play even with it in the chest of the WR.

Next Practice is Thursday, hopefull the weather will be warmer, the wind will
be lighter and the play by the offense will pick up.

Sounds like our defensive backs are catching more passes than our wide receivers! What's up with that?

Friday was a good day for the WRs, Today was more about wide
and overthrown passes by the QBs, and dropped passes by the WRs.

Kelvin made a hell of a read and play on Thompson's pass. The other
two picks were poor passes by Mitch and Nosovitch.

I know I am not out there but I rather them play in some adverse weather just to make it tougher on them now. Thinking being it could help in the long run.

He's only caught a couple of passes during each of the last two practices
but they were all really nice looking grabs in tight coverage.

Today's practice was rough. It's been windy and cool for most of the
workouts, but tonight the temp was cold to start with and when the
wind gusts came in, it was like an ice sword slicing through you.

Thanks for the report! I'd like to see our DBs and LBs try and rip the ball more to create turnovers.. First guy wrap up and everyone else start ripping for the ball.

Default Re: COCKYTALK SPRING PRACTICE REPORT: 3/26/13 (Practice Number 6)

How good are Kelvin Rainey's chances of starting over Kaiwan Lewis given his success in the spring practices?

According to Coach Ward's post-game presser, if we played a real game this week, Lewis would start at MLB and Holloman would start at OLB.....

Also from tweets of the practice:

The Rabbit Package was practiced with Clowney and Sutton on inside, and English and Harris on the outside...

Surratt and Dixon Jr. are in a tie for the DT spot next to Quarles

Alshon and Stephon were at practice today, as well as Cincy Bengals HC Marvin Lewis...

Thursday's practice will involve a scrimmage. Tomorrow is USC's Pro Day.....

Practice today was kind of ragged through most of the workout. All the QBs were off
target and way too many dropped passes. I’m blaming it on the windy and cold weather
conditions for lack of saying the offense just wasn’t “on” today. There was a stretch
early in the skels when there were some nice plays, but it wasn’t the best practice
they’ve had this spring from start to finish.

Bruce Ellington made his first appearance with the team this afternoon and ended the
workout as maybe the best looking WR on the field. Before the team drills, Bruce joined
Vic Hampton and Shaq Roland fielding punts. Shaq actually got some attention during
These drills due to his string of dropped punts last week. Today he fielded about 8-10
punts total and didn’t drop a single one UNTIL… the entire punt and Punt return team
got up for a few full speed reps. Shaq fielded the first punt and with the gunners bearing
down on him, he let the first one slip through his arms and one of the defenders picked
the ball up on one hop and ran it into the endzone. Not being too hard on Shaq today
though, as Bruce and Vic also had muffed punts during this drill.

The team was in shells again today, and I’m thinking with that, there has been only one
practice this spring where the team has gone in full game gear. The skels and 11 on 11
were run identical, with the offense starting at the 25 going long to the opposite end, and
then after about 10-12 reps, they flipped the direction and ran to the short side (red zone)
taking a few snaps from the 20, then from the 5.

Dylan Thompson didn’t have quite as productive a workout as he usually does, however
you can still see the noticeable difference in the talent between him and the rest of the
QB roster when they’re running the full offense. Thompson’s first pass of the day was picked
by….you guessed it, Kelvin Rainey. That makes 6 total for him this spring from his MLB
position and if anyone has wondered if Kelvin has just been Lucky, or in the right spot at
the right time, let me assure you, this pick ended all doubt of that notion. Thompson dropped
back looking to his right and Rainey was backing up slanting to the outside in the opposite
direction. As Dylan shifted his body back to the inside, Rainey stopped and moved toward
Brandon Wilds who was running a short curl route in the middle as a safey or Checkdown
receiver. When Thompson cocked his arm, Rainey was moving towards the check down
target, and by the time the ball was released, Kelvin was in full speed to jump the route
and pick the ball of clean. There was no luck involved in that play..it was ALL RAINEY.
Thompson took a seat and Connor Mitch got up for a rep, and suffered a similar fate. He
threw the ball into heavy coverage in a short curl trying to hit Buster Anderson, but Vic
Hampton read that one all the way and stepped in front of the pass for the first of 2 picks
by Vic on the day. His second came during the 11 on 11 when Brendon Nosovitch tried to
hit Roland on a deep Go Route down the left sideline, but the pass was thrown Way Too
long, and Vic did not let Roland behind him. Hampton was in the better position to pick off
the overthrown pass on that play. Shortly after Hampton picked off Connor Mitch, the
offense got hot and went on a little streak of completions. During that stretch, Roland
brought in two passes over the middle, A catch by Kwinton Smith on a nice Seam route
in the middle from Mitch, there was one catch by Jarrell Adams on a shorter route over
the middle, but it didn’t make up for the dropped pass he made later on, on what would
have been the play of the day. Jarrell made a really nice curl and go route to get a couple
of steps behind the defender (couldn’t make out the number of the DB/LB). Thompson
launched a really nice pass down the right sideline and hit Adams in stride about 30
yards deep, but the ball went through Jarrell’s hands.
Bruce Ellington caught a couple of passes tonight and made some nice moves to elude
the would be tackles. KJ Brent got on pass on a corner route with the team running red
zone plays during skels. He beat Jimmy Legree to the spot, and was able to go up over
Legree and out wrestled him for the reception for the TD. Brent has to pull the ball in
with one hand as he warded off Legree with the other. Shamier Jeffery got one catch
but dropped another, Buster Anderson had two passes sail over his head with him standing
alone in the end zone, but managed to get one reception during skels. However, he
dropped another pass just in front of the end zone later in the full team drills. Jody Fuller
had two TD passes go through his hands during the team drills.

For the most part, the Defense was in control of the team drills, allowing only a couple of
scores from short range in the red zone drills. I’m not so sure however that tonight it was
not so much of outstanding defensive performances, but rather the poor play of the WRs
and QBs .
The first scuffle of the spring broke out toward the end of the practice on a fairly routine
looking play where Brandon Wilds took a short screen pass from the five yard line, and
dove into the endzone for a TD. As the team was coming back to the line, there was some
loud words exchanged and then KJ Brent ended up going at it with one of the defensive
players. I couldn’t see the defensive player’s number because of the crowd around him,
but the two ended up in a pretty rough wrestling match before the coaches decided to
break them up.

Jordan Diggs wasn’t as sharp tonight as he was in the last practice, giving up a TD with
some poor coverage on Drew Owens. He was also beaten over the middle by Adams
for a long gainer off a short pass play during skels. Chaz Elder continues to impress
however, making a really nice play during 11 on 11 on Bruce Ellington. Thompson
threw a strike into Bruce’s numbers on the goal line, but Elder was able to stay with
the play, come over Ellingtons shoulder after he caught the ball, and swiped it out of
his hands. This is a skill I wish all our defenders would work on. By all intents and
purposes that should have been a completion, maybe for a TD, but Elder refused
to give up on the play even with it in the chest of the WR.

Next Practice is Thursday, hopefull the weather will be warmer, the wind will
be lighter and the play by the offense will pick up.

I'm hoping Rainey develops as I thought he might and as Cover2 and I discussed last fall. The NFL drafts multiples at LB compared with tight ends. It could be a great move for his future as well as filling a need with the team. With his height, frame, and speed, he could develop into an elite LB if everything comes together.
