Today’s practice may have been Keenan Reynolds best this year. Though he scored a great seam-route TD during the open practice at Navy, he produced a quality practice today.
I have these notes specifically on Reynolds:
- 10-yard catch against Chuck Clark
- 8-yard catch against Lardarius Webb
- 50-yard touchdown pass from Dustin Vaughan
It wasn’t all perfection though, as he did drop a kickoff during special teams drills. Terrell Suggs commented his disapproval from the sidelines, urging him to make no more mistakes.
It seems Josh Woodrum’s preseason game against the Washington Redskins has elevated him to the second string. He worked his reps with most of the second unit, at least more than before the game on Thursday.
Javorius Allen is fending off Taquan Mizzell whenever given reps. He’s running the ball quickly and exploding through lanes. Seems to receive more first- and second- string reps than ‘Smoke’ right now.
Ryan Jensen was called out by Za’Darius Smith in pass protection battles. The two crashed pads and played well after the whistle. Both the offense and defense were fired up by the display. Energy levels were boosted for the rest of today’s practice.
Maxx Williams shined today, after Larry Donnell had a bad drop. On a third down play, he high-pointed a pass and came down a yard past the first down. The play received some acknowledgement from reporters watching. Later on, during the aforementioned 1v1 pass-pro drills, Williams stonewalled Matt Judon. Reminder, this is a tight end, not a tackle dealing with a Judon bullrush.
Jaylen Hill continues his impressive playmaking streak after the game against the Redskins with a diving interception. He cut the route against Chris Moore, who had a good bit of separation against the corner. The slot corner position is reaching boiling temperatures as Sheldon Price, Marlon Humphrey and Hill jockey for position.
