Just curious but where is Brockel seeing his time at, tight end or full back?

Having the pads on really benefits Star. If he cannot hit anyone he isnt going to beat them at this stage in his career. Finesse isn't his game. When the pads are on, he can bull rush and use those massive arms to toss aside his opponent. We will really get a sense of what Star is made of in the first pre-season game when he is suited up, fired up, and can hit someone who isn't on his team.

The offensive line really needs to be on point by season's open. That's the key to a fast start for us. I think the defense can hold their own but if the the line is not blocking well for Cam, prepare for another 1-3 September.

Great Write Up, if you can do this for every training camp it would be awesome.

 

How did Hixon look btw, hardly any mention of him.

This battle between Star and Amini is going to be the highlight of camp for me.

 

O-line is probably the biggest concern.

Love to hear that about Barner! A lot of people were mad about the pick because it was another RB, but I knew how explosive he was and was surprised he was still there that late. Awesome news!

As far as the OL and DBs, hopefully this will convince Gettleman that we need to add some guys that are left out there... I know its one padded practice, but finish the deals with Wharton and Mikell, then look into help at CB.

Btw Zod, aside from almost being sacked a lot, how did Cam look?

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
