- Wanny has come out and praised Lucas Nix and Chris Jacobson. Nix got reps at left tackle with the first team offense on both days and has made a good accounting of himself. Jacobson is clearly the front runner at the left guard position and he is living up to that status early in camp. I'm still very skeptical about how much Nix will play and what the final depth chart will shake out at when we get to the fall.
- Bostick and Sunseri got chances to work with the first team which is promising if you expect a legitimate QB competition. So much is going to happen over the rest of these practices and as long as Bostick and Sunseri get their chances I'm happy. I really hope Cignetti gets a chance to look at everybody before the decision on who starts is made.
- Elijiah Fields is getting all the first team reps at strong safety which is great news. Fields has the opportunity to be a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball. If Fields plays to his talent we have a potential All Big East player in him.
- Greg Cross was returning kicks yesterday which seems insane to me with a guy his size. I would imagine Saddler and Wright will be the kick returners but this is an odd development.
So that is it from the weekend of practicing in pads. I'm going to push the linebacker position battle column to tomorrow since things got a little hectic today. See you tomorrow.
