Senior Bowl Week Day 4
Today’s practices were in helmets and shorts, so not a lot of work being done; so minimal scouting was done, as well.
QB Ricky Stanzi continues to underimpress. His ball is still floating on the intermediate routes, causing his receivers to wait for it.
QB Colin Kaepernick is still having accuracy issues in the 2 minute offense drill. Big wind up had DBs breaking on him quickly and making plays.
FB Owen Marecic is able to use his quick feet to get into 5 and 6 holes on dives…very impressive.
RBs – Da’Rel Scott doesn’t look too comfortable in pass routes and catching the ball. May be his stiff footwork being highlighted in another area. Needs to be more aggressive on the draw.
Roy Helu Jr. had an awesome day. He showcased what you need to in helmets and shorts – feet. He has exceptional footwork and fluid hips helps him glide in and out of cuts.
Demarco Murray – Great size, excellent feet; sharp, crisp and precise. Great in deep patterns; very effective double move on a LB.
LBs – Ross Homan stays tough after jam and I able to break with the receiver after it. He provides great back pocket – blanket coverage with receiver after jam on the line. Showed off his excellent feet in a few different drills
Mike McNeil had trouble covering after jam.
Lawrence Wilson looked a little lost in coverage at times.
Casey Matthews has excellent closing speed.
DBs – Jalil Brown has great feet and fluid hips. He stayed in receiver’s hips and made plays.
Kendric Berney was on fire. He had 2 interceptions, as he broke out of his backpedal very quickly. He was all over the field.
QBs – Greg McElroy finally looked consistent. His balls were tight and precise.
WRs – Courtney Smith was on fire. He showed that he can get use his speed to get separation. He also used his large frame to shield and bully the DBs.
Greg Salas continues to drop balls and looks very out-of-place.
RBs- Bilal Powell showcased his exceptional hands and will be a threat and asset out of the backfield. Excellent hands and catching ability.
OLs – Rodney Hudson great strength and he drops his hips very well.
DBs- Shareece Wright still blanketing reveivers with a supposed bad toe.
