April 4th practice Video Below.
As always Travis Thomas looks very good. Quick, strong and looks stout. I have always liked the way he hits the hole. Will be an improvement over DW in this regard. Schwapp's knee is still bothering him and he doesn't look like he can do much. It will be nice to get him at full strength. He is big, fast and powerful. Nice addition to a Red Zone offense. Jabbie looks quick during drills and so does Aldridge. Looks like his injury is gone. Click the link to see what was said about him and Armando. Armando Allen as always looked quick, but still unsteady with some of the drills. Will be nice to see him carry the ball on April 21st.
The O line drills didn't show much. Young is powerful and quick (duh), Carufel looks good on the pull and keeps his hips nice and low. Sully as expected looks good and so does Turkovich.
The defensive pursuit drills showed off some speed during the drill. McNeil, Zibby looked good in pursuit. Wade looked very fast for a big guy. I think he will be the surprise of the Defense this season. He hails from the Cincinnati area and I expected more from him earlier, but now the new D will help with that and he will excel.
Crum and Brockington, in the limited drill shown looked good with nice explosiveness off the edge during their backer drill. It makes me crazy to think that Charlie didn't make the move earlier, but we gotta live with it now. The future looks quite bright.
