North Practice Recap - Wednesday


By Doug Lancy on 01-23-2013

Day 3 started beautifully and the players came out to play with today being the last day of practice in pads. The temperatures were steadily climbing as the intensity on the field climbed. A few players really stood out today, namely QB Mike Glennon, RB Johnathan Franklin, WR Markus Wheaton, OT Eric Fisher, DL Brandon Williams, and DB Desmond Trufant.

  
  • QB Zac Dysert (Miami OH) - Very erratic passer, accuracy concerns at every level. Still learning how to takie snaps from center. Still like his play action fake the most.
  • QB Mike Glennon (NC State) - Slowly emerging as the best quarterback here, although he also is the best fit for the scheme here.  Able to put good spin on the ball, connected on deep passes to Aaron Mellette and Chris Harper that got the crowds appreciation. Would like to see some mobility out of him. Can get a little inconsistent on shorter passes.
  • QB Ryan Nassib (Syracuse) - More of a West Coast fit as his accuracy declines dramatically on deeper balls. Has the ability to throw on the run, but not something you can rely upon.
  • Johnathan Franklin

  • RB Kenjon Barner (Oregon) - Is showing that he may be more than just a change of pace back. Still have concerns about his strength up the middle, but he's an excellent in space and running routes. Showed good concentration to bring in a ball that initially bounced off his hands.
  • RB Johnathan Franklin (UCLA) - Continues to excel in every aspect of the game. A well rounded back that can do it all and should be getting more respect than he has been.
  • RB Robbie Rouse (Fresno St) - Size is an issue for Rouse, but he is a scrapper who give his all. He was beaten badly in blocking drills only to bounce back and make the stop.
  • FB Kyle Juszczyk (Harvard) - Shown soft hands with the ability to make tough catches, a definite H-back type. Blocking is a concern and he will need to develop his techniques.
  • WR Aaron Dobson (Marshall) - Is an all-around decent receiver. Ceiling may not be as high as some of the other receivers, but he could be more productive to begin with.
  • WR Marquise Goodwin (Texas) - Athletic receiver with nice speed but questionable hands.
  • WR Chris Harper (Kansas St) - Has already developed a connection with Glennon and is a reliable receiver that quarterbacks will want.
  • WR Aaron Mellette (Elon) - Struggles to get separation from corners, needs to become a better route runner.
  • WR Denard Robinson (Michigan) - Was cleared to practice fully today. Still struggling to make the switch to receiver, dropping some balls that should always be caught. But Oakland WR Coach Ted Gilmore says that Robinson has been paying attention and learning while unable to participate and he's somebody that coaches can develop as he's proven to be very teachable.
  • WR Markus Wheaton (Oregon St) - Excellent route runner that consistently gets separation from coverage.
  • TE Jack Doyle (Western Kentucky) - Showed that he is a complete package at tight end making nice catches with soft hands and is an able blocker.
  • TE Nick Kasa (Colorado) - Struggles in the blocking game getting beat regularly, but to be expected as he is still learning the position. Already showing nice hands.
  • OL Braxston Cave (Notre Dame) - Can be overpowered. Needs to increase his upper body strength and keep his pad level low where he can use his leverage.
  • OL Eric Fisher (Central Michigan) - Continues to dominate the line, but did show some struggles with athletic rushers. May work better at right tackle after all.
  • OL Kyle Long (Oregon) - Has been out the last couple of days with flu like symptoms.
  • OL Joe Madsen (West Virginia) - Is better at pass protection than run protection able to hold his position but hasn't driven back his opponent in drills nor 11-on-11.
  • OL Justin Pugh (Syracuse) - Is definitely athletic but size might be an issue for him to stay at tackle. He moved in to left guard today and had a punishing block against Wreh-Wilson on a pulling play. He could still play tackle in a zone blocking scheme, but guard will more likely be his NFL position.
  • OL David Quessenberry (San Jose St) - Is more of a developmental tackle prospect, he has the frame, but needs to add some strength to be effective at the next level.
  • OL Hugh Thornton (Illinois) - A true road grader whose best fit looks to be right guard.
  • OL Ricky Wagner (Wisconsin) - Shows little upside at right tackle struggling against some of the rushers, and a move inside might be required to get the most out of him.
  • OL Brian Winters (Kent St) - Is making the transition to guard and has played well there although still needs to improve footwork, especially when pulling.
  •  
    Jordan Hill

  • DL Michael Buchanan (Illinois) - Is athletic with a combination of speed and power. Can rush from the end and may be able to stand up. May need to start as a situational pass rusher.
  • DL Jordan Hill (Penn St) - Is best fit for a 4-3 defensive tackle. Doesn't dominate the line but can be effective with a good initial burst.
  • DL Margus Hunt (SMU) - Has relied more on his size and athleticism than skill and technique and he will have to focus on the latter to make an impact at the next level.
  • DL Datone Jones (UCLA) - Impressive pass rusher who has beaten Fisher at times. 
  • DL Alex Okafor (Texas) - Has some of the best hand techniques on the line, but tends to overplay and get caught out of position.
  • DL Kawann Short (Purdue) - Has impressive size, and can make an impact, but doesn't play consistently. Overall conditioning appears to be an issue.
  • DL Brandon Williams (Missouri Southern) - A nose tackle with the mean streak you want in a lineman. A plugger with the ability to collapse the pocket.
  • DL Sylvester Williams (North Carolina) - Looks to be a situational pass rusher only, doesn't offer much in run support but has quick release to get after the quarterback.
  • LB Steve Beauharnais (Rutgers) - Wraps up well. Nice closing speed and excellent change of direction. Struggles in back pedal, more of a speed rusher.
  • LB Khaseem Greene (Rutgers) - Solid in all aspects: wrapping up, back pedal, change of direction, rip move.
  • DB Jonathan Cyprien (Florida Intl) - Shows great range in coverage.
  • DB Will Davis (Utah St) - Good recovery speed but can get burned on double moves.
  • DB Dwayne Gratz (UConn) - Keeps tight coverage but struggles on change of direction.
  • DB TJ McDonald (USC) - Poor recovery speed, but good instincts. Often guesses right and is in position to make a play.
  • DB Jordan Poyer (Oregon St) - Didn't really stand out today, getting beat on comebacks.  Needs to better understand route tree to know when receivers will make their cuts.
  • DB Jamar Taylor (Boise St) - Not a good day for Taylor who was beat deep and committed multiple penalties trying to stay with receivers. Man to man is not his strength.
  • DB Phillip Thomas (Fresno St) - A big safety who shows athleticism of someone smaller.
  • DB Desmond Trufant (Washington) - Great in man coverage. Continues to challenge Wheaton. Shows nice recovery when he does get beat. Strong mental make up, comes back hard after he does get beat.
Other Notes:
  • DB Tyrann Matheiu (LSU) the "Honey Badger" was in attendance looking to do some damage control and build some relationships before the draft.
  • RB Marcus Lattimore (South Carolina) was also around today and showing that he is recovering as he moved with very little signs of a limp.
