Some defensive notes from Thursday’s practice…is Dicaprio Bootle a starting CB?

  • In early parts of practice in the 2-minute drill, Bootle was serving as the boundary CB opposite of Lamar Jackson, and then later saw that Eric Lee was indeed the nickelback. Surprised at all by that?
  • Also, Chris Weber on 2nd team LB unit in the nickel defense, with Gifford/Newby both on field…

Are we seeing a potential move on the offensive line with Boe Wilson entering the starting fray? / Shut Up Sipple

  • Wilson was getting starting reps at RG for most of practice, with Jerald Foster and Tanner Farmer splitting reps at LG….just getting Wilson more reps or something worth watching?
  • Maybe it’s a way for Cavanaugh to light a fire under the line’s ass…we know Wilson has a mean streak

What has happened to Patrick O’Brien? Langsdorf says there is no ‘clear’ No. 2 QB currently

  • Is that more of an indictment on O’Brien’s performance the past 2 weeks, or a credit to Tristan Gebbia’s rise so far?
  • How will this all play out? Just a few months ago, there was a legitimate battle for the starting QB job, and now it’s not even clear if O’Brien is the backup. What the heck happened? POB not hungry enough to serve as a back-up or is Gebbia just the man of the future already?
  • Also, more comments from the current QB, Tanner Lee, on his Fall Camp so far.

It’s time to start taking the Tyler Hoppes conversation very seriously

Hoppes was the target several times in 2-minute drill, and made several nice catches in traffic…definitely is going to have a big impact on the offense. But how much?

Is there a chance that the top running back spot this year goes to it’s best pass catcher?

  • Devine Ozigbo, Mikale Wilbon and Reggie Davis spoke with media yesterday and all talked about how much they’ve had to improve their pass-catching in the offseason and in the first part of Fall Camp
  • Also, Tre Bryant missed practice to avoid wear and tear on his knee, per Coach Riley—concerned about his status in the race at all?
