09.Aug.2015 Fall Practice Day 2
Some good news regarding Seumalo — the coaches are easing him back into practice and using him at guard for now since Andrews is out, but he might move if and when Andrews returns. The expectation all around is that he will be ready to start game 1 barring any setback.
Regarding the QB battle, nothing really new today. Quarterbacks were throwing into the nets (rolling out and throwing from 10 yards away then throwing what would be WR screens), and Collins struggled and lost his cool a couple of times, appearing to be frustrated about his performance. He struggled hitting the net, as did the transfer QB Garretson. Mitchell and Marcus did well in those drills, but McMaryion missed open wide receivers in his 2nd team reps. Based on this and yesterday’s performance, Mitchell probably has the upper hand at this point.
On the second team, Paul Lucas stood out. Very explosive, froze DBs, and ran good routes for a converted RB. He would have scored several touchdowns had McMaryion delivered better balls.
