    Pat O'Donnell has hit the top of the ceiling w/every kick, said his leg is massive.

    Said Ego and Sutton are HUGE men, said you can see why Phil was enamoured w/them.

    said Trestman has been upset w/the O rookies first team a few times and told the entire first string to come off the field to have the 2nd team come on instead.

    Fuller looks good, has good "hip swivel",

    my phone's radio just stopped working nothing else right now

    That makes me grin about O'Donnell, hell yes. I love Trest, if you guys don't wanna perform, we'll see what these guy can do. Good lesson for those rooks. Where were you listening?

    radio is back, fyi this was via 670 the score

    said the team is happy about O'Donnell b/c they are going to try and use him to keep field position instead of relying on their KR/PR guy.

    Said Lynch has terrific contact balance.


    and the radio went dead again...

    thanks --- I was wondering what might have been happening there. Don;t like to hear that the first rook team was taking it lightly, but obviously they know it's no picnic. now. If they want to sip Marguaritas, they need to make their way to Tampa.

    it wasn't that they were taking it lightly, but things like penalties or false starts or the person lined up wrong. They were running these rookies like they would the vets at reg training camp

    btw, I heard a bit of a 2nd report, Christian Jones looks like he belongs and Lynch looked pretty good at rb, but it's really hard to tell b/c there is no hitting; but both looked like they belonged.

    jones is looking to work at SAM and only SAM.

    Saw one of the quotes by Trest was today was about learning how to practice. I love how up-tempo he runs things, you go 100 miles an hour all damn practice. I bet it'll make the game speed a bit easier to imagine when practice is a whirlwind.

    That's music to my ear. Jones, Lynch, and Lattimore are my favorite UDFA's. Any news on Lattimore? Still though, very happy to hear about Lynch and Jones.

    Excellent. I thought (hoped) that Jones would look good. AT one point he was considered a first round pick. Not sure why he dropped. I'm sure there is a reason, but don't know much about him.

    I believe Jones had to switch from LB to DE due to players leaving and FSU needing some pass rush off the edge. So perhaps some teams wanted more tape or didn't know where he'd go. Also failed a drug test at the combine, think that was big on his draft stock.
