Today was a rough day for the Kendrick Panther. Had trouble getting a good view, tons of people there and they love to stand in front of wherever I sit. I'll post what I can....

-Steve Smith watched today
-Thomas Davis watched and had a long sock on one leg. Dunno if it was for injury or style

-Ron Ron said #96 Ron Edwards would sit out tonight but he was def out there at least partially participating
-Gamble looked good to go all practice

I couldn't get a good angle for number on mos of the position drills so I can't really comment. With that said...

Team Drills:
-Padded practice but still very little hitting, no big hits
-Was hard to follow "1st Team/2nd Team/Etc..." at times they really mixed things up tonight
-Captain and Gamble did get the bulk of "first team" snaps
-On three straight plays Cam completed passes against the Captain...
-I'm sure someone tweeted Jared Green's bomb TD but the play developed really slow, would have been a sack
-Armanti has looked pretty solid. If only he had another 7 years to develop...
-Greg Hardy got pancaked by #73 Bruce Cambell on one play
-#31 Reggie Smith had a sack on Cam, no contact but he got there on a Safety blitz
-Cam threw a pick, the receiver didn't do him any favors but Gamble broke up the pass and Beason scooped the deflection. Cam ran Beason down and put a lick on him. Made me groan personally
-Kuechly continues to be in the correct position on every play. I remember Dan Connor's rookie camp and he was nothing compared to this guy.
-The Offense has been expanding on formations since the first practice. Saw a trips right, tons of motion, even Greg Olsen lined up as a wide reciever
-Tolbert has been playing the "Shockey Role" more with the 1st team than Gary Barnidge
-They continue to work on the read option and Cam always makes the correct call. He froze CJPAYDAY and handed off to Stew for a big gain
-The offense caught the D in a blitz and ran the perfect screen play for a TD, Stewart the receiver.
-Cam's throwing is an afterthought. He's accurate on almost all of his throws, the receivers just need to catch those rockets. Reminds me of Favre in the 90s.
-#7 hardly gets any reps. When he does it's usually embarrassing. Not worth talking about.
-Greg Olsen made tons of catches tonight. All beautiful balls from Cam and Derek Anderson.
-I believe Brandon Hogan picked off someone tonight. Was hard to read the number with the dreads.
-At one point the D blitzed everyone, instead of throwing it into the dirt, Cam tried to escape the pocket and took a hit. Another moment that made me groan.
-Cam handed off to Pilares on a read option, he then pitched to Louis Murphy for the reverse. I don't think it would have worked in live hitting.
-Joe Adams had a very nice play where he sat down in the zone for a ~25 yard catch
-Frank Alexander was getting good pressure but hard to judge that kind of thing in camp
-I saw at least one 3-4 look tonight. Applewhite on the left and Greg Hardy on the right, had a bad angle for the 3 down lineman.
-Didn't notice Josh Norman tonight, may have just been my bad view but I never noticed him
-Darius Butler was getting 1st and 2nd team work a ton tonight
-#33 Tauren Poole dropped an easy one tonight, he heard footsteps with his back to the safeties
-Brockel got plenty of first team snaps motioning around and helping in protection
-Barnidge had a few nice catches but mostly in the 2nd team
-Several times the offense has motioned the RB out to go 5 wide. The RB then stays at the line of scrimmage for a quick screen pass, Cam never throws to them but there they are.

Line Drills:
-I didn't have a good view of these but I did see #99 Frank Kearse restrained, I think he got a little physical with Bruce Cambell but not certain.

Big Picture Observations:
-We are blitzing Safeties and Linebackers a lot more in this camp
-Motion and read option are big parts of our offense thus far
-Kuechly is light years ahead of most rookies
-The offense is winning most of the plays but contact is minimal. We all know defenses thrive on contact.
-Our running backs all look great, even the ones that won't make the team

I'll add a couple pictures of the action. If you click them, they get bigger.

Good stuff dude. I really appreciate you taking the time, fighting the heat, and sharing your knowledge with us. Especially for us out of state fans. The Huddle is way better than the CO for actual camp observations.

I'm eager to see Murphy and how he can be in our offense.

Thanks man, on the note of Cam chasing beason, and taking hits when blitzed. I think its just him having fun, hes young and athletic the likely hood of him getting injured it there, but he just wants to have fun in practice. Hopefully he never gets hurt messing around like that !!!
