A few things I observed: Scrimmages: 1. Hansen ran the ones which included the usual guys. OL had Solder, Adkins, Stevens, Miller, and Bahktiari. WR's were Clemons, McKnight, and Jefferson. Offense was spreading the field. Defense had Webb and Mahnke at LB, with BJ at his DE position, Cunningham, Herrod and Pericek rounding out the front 4. DBs were Smith, Perkins, Polk, Brown and Orms. 2. Cody led the 2nd group, Hildreth broke one. OL had Harris, Richter, Iltis, Dannewicz and Givens. Tau and MTM were doing drills and moving well.. I didn't see where they fit into the scrimmages. I didn't see Bahr and Behrens, but I'm sure they were there. Those two started a lot of games in 2008.... It's early, and I don't think running with the 1's and 2's means much now. Newcomers: DL and Tight Ends. Uzo-Diribe stood out as a big explosive guy. Some really athletic guys in this group. Uzo-Diribe was mostly working with Bandison and the DL, but ran some Tight End drills. Impressed with Mobley and Griffon as athletes. Given that Griffon came from a running team, he might have an edge to see PT this year? Just a thought. Couldn't see the RB's much. Clark is a big boy though. Speedy and B-Lock were leading the drills. DL - Kasa is huge. He stands out. Bonsu was full participation and moving well. Obi and Goree are big boys. The DL looks bigger and meaner than ever before. West is out a few weeks with a tweak. Clemons vs. Jimmy Smith in practice is a treat. Serious competition there. Orms - it's an illusion. There are 3 guys on the field wearing his number. Got to be. PR - Canty, Cefalo, Clemons, Jones #1, McKnight and others catching punts while guys throw crap at them. Canty - don't care what his 40 time is, he's got Football quicks. Looks really confident. Our OL group is impressive. They number about 20 guys and they are deep and they are huge. Solder and Miller are both freaks of nature. Darden was doing some good stuff. He seems to be emerging as a player who could see some PT. Until they are going live in full pads, there's not much to observe. Given practices close in about a week, that means we will see what we got vs. CSU.
