Wagoner's 7/29 Afternoon Notes
-From the “Tell us something we don’t know department” Kevin Curtis is unbelievably fast. He continues to prove that he is the fastest player on the team. In the afternoon session, when throwing is more the order of the day, Curtis got a chance to display that speed, but it was his hands that were the most impressive part of his day. Curtis made a number of great catches including an over-the-shoulder gem on a fade pattern from Jamie Martin.
-Looking around the secondary it is almost impossible to tell right now who has the edge. Every player seems to bring something different and all have talent. There isn’t a single player in the secondary that isn’t capable of making the team.
-Ronald Bartell is a good kid with a good head on his shoulders. His speed and build is impressive. He is starting out as a cornerback, but I would like to see what he can do at free safety. His tools seem perfect for that spot.
-I forgot to mention in my morning notes that Jimmy Kennedy isn’t the only defensive tackle making an early impression. Ryan “Big Grease” Pickett also looks primed for a big year. Pickett has always kind of flown under the radar because of his laid-back approach. He can tie up blockers in bunches and has a solid motor. This is his contract year and he could make a move this season.
-Orlando Pace closed out the team huddle in the afternoon session. It’s hard to believe that the big soft-spoken tackle from Ohio State has become such a leader to the point that he is not only leading by example, but also taking an active vocal role on the offensive line. Having Pace in camp on time this season should do great things for the chemistry and camaraderie of the offensive line.
