WR/DB’s

-Terrance Williams of Baylor looked to me like he was rounding off his slant route early in practice. In cones he knocked one over and was reminded by the coaching staff to keep his feet up. In one on ones he beat Marc Anthony on a double move deep. Williams later went against Anthony who had tight coverage on him but Williams was still able to go up and make a play on the ball. I thought he looked good in blocking drills.

-Conner Vernon from Duke got corrected on his slant route by the coaches. He later had a drop on the 7 on 7’s. I also thought Vernon struggled in the blocking drills, he quit moving his feet once he made contact. He also couldn’t get any separation from B.W. Webb. Vernon was quiet the rest of the day.

-Russell Shepard from LSU got complimented catching the ball with his hands off his frame during drill work, but then in the next drill had a bad drop. Later Shepard failed to separate vs. JJ Wilcox. Shepard was a late addition; he was quiet for most of the day.

-Cobi Hamilton from Arkansas looked as if he was rounding off some of his routes, but was complimented on his blocking. He also couldn’t get any separation from Robert Alford in one on ones. Hamilton didn’t do much to stick out in practice the rest of the day. Read the rest of this entry » «Senior Bowl Notebook: Wednesday South Practice Notes»

WR/DB’s

-In drill work I thought Jordan Poyer showed a nice, smooth backpedal. He had an up and down day today. When lined up against Denard Robinson he got turned around and beat. He got high on TE Nick Kasa on a tackle. He had good coverage for most of the day but he didn’t stand out as well today as Monday and Tuesday. A case could be made for him as the best CB here.

-Dwayne Gratz also looked to have a nice low back pedal. Gratz was active in practice today doing some nice things. He got complimented by coaches for a nice pass break up, showed that he has a nice press.

-Desmond Trufant seemed to be high when coming out of his back pedal. He had a nice pass break up, but was also beat a few times by wide receivers.

-It was an up and down day for receiver from Texas, Marquise Goodwin. In early drill work he had two drops. They were both high throws that he got his hands on but couldn’t haul in. While doing blocking drills he lunged at the DB and fell over, he was given a 2nd opportunity right after and looked much better. He was giving good effort. I noticed that Goodwin caught the ball with his body too much. Later Goodwin displayed his speed and was able to run right by Duke Williams. On 7 on 7’s Goodwin again dropped a pass that he let get into his body. Goodwin later shined on the 11 on 11’s. He made two nice catches on out routes; Wreh-Wilson was on coverage for both of them.
