Night practice:

Josh Doctson:

Jimmy Moreland:

"He’s done a good job. He’s played outside and inside; versatility is huge for the nickel/cornerback position. [Greg] Stroman’s doing the same thing, Fabian [Moreau] is doing the same thing, so it’s critical for them to learn both. Coming from JMU, he was well coached out there, he plays with great ball skills; we’ve mentioned that before and seen it already. But he’s just got to continue to work and get better, which he is.”

Trent Williams:

Geron Christian Sr.:

Challenging pass interference calls:

"Wow that is a good one, we’re going to have to have (Senior Assistant) Coach [Matt] Cavanaugh on the box watching very closely just for PIs, ya know and obviously other challenges that already are part of the game so it’s going to be a very stressful deal for us. It’s got to be obviously blatant for them to overturn a call or put a flag on a field. But, it’s something we’ve got to watch out for, these plays are huge and then you have to decide what play is big enough to challenge where you don’t want to waste a challenge, maybe on a 12 yard gain. But if it’s a 12 yard gain on 3rd down and 8, maybe you do if it keeps the drive going, it’s going to be something we have to discuss, when and how to use them. You also don’t want to be stuck with three time outs and three challenge flags at the end of the game and not use them, so it’s going to be an interesting dilemma for a lot of coaches – for all coaches.”

Chase Roullier:

Montez Sweat:

"Yeah, speed, size, length; we’ve already talked about that. Now we’re just trying to hone in on – if [we’re] playing base defense, one of those guys (outside linebackers) sometimes has got to drop into coverage – so we’re working on his drops and his aiming points and all that. But from a pass-rush standpoint, obviously he will be a problem for a lot of people; even if he doesn’t get home, you’ll feel his presence because he’s so long and he’s always around the quarterback – he can make the quarterback step up into [Daron] Payne and [Jonathan] Allen, hopefully [Matt] Ioannidis and those other guys. So [we have] two great edge setters. Ryan Anderson is doing a much better job in camp; [Marcus] Smith [II] is doing a better job, talked about Cassanova McKinzy – he’s doing a good job too. I’ve got a good group of edge guys.”
