Day 3 of the week marks the final chance that the players are put through full pad practices. Friday is for walkthroughs and other obligations such as media and of course, visiting local hospitals among other charitable causes. Most teams have packed up and left for their home bases. Who won and lost the day? Here are some links to kick things off as usual.
CF 24/7 has some bonus thoughts from Mike Mayock
CF 24/7 also has a feature on KSU WR Tyler Lockett here
NFL.com features 8 things they learned on Day 3 practice sessions
Eric Galko has a report on the North practice
- ECU QB Shane Carden solidified his undrafted stock today with another poor performance. He was the love child of Chad Pennington and Jay Cutler. Didn't show much arm strength or talent and threw some hideous picks at least 5 different times.
- Baylor QB Bryce Petty pretty much answered the system questions in the WRONG way. He's an one read and go type of QB. Needs a lot of work.
- Danny Shelton. That is all.
- La'el Collins pretty much locked up the top tackle drafted honors this week. He's a monster
- As I mentioned earlier in the season, Hau'oli Kikaha is all smoke and mirrors.
- Utah DE Nate Orchard has confirmed my evaluation this week. He's by far the best pass rusher/athlete not named Shaq Thompson. Underrated guy who is one of the best pass rushers in the Pac-12.
- The only dude who "handled" Shelton was Duke's Laken Tomlinson. This LT has made a name for himself this week. Could be a 2nd round pick right now.
- The Clemson duo of LB Stephone Anthony and DT Grady Jarrett both impressed today and this week in total.
- Our Big Ten RBs stepped up as well. Both David Cobb and Ameer Abdullah impressed me in their pass blocking one on ones.
- Garrett Grayson, third best QB in the class? We will have to see but he is well on his way after a solid week.
- I'd like to thank Jimmy for the chance to do this again and more importantly, you the readers who graciously took the time to read the posts. I look forward to bringing more draft notes to the best SB Nation site out there as we move along the process.
- Not to be too self indulgent but most of the prospects I did highlight in my preview posts and the fan guides managed to shine this week.
- Also, a welcome for Terry Lambert is in order. Welcome Terry!
