According to Barry Jackson, Dolphins first-round DE Charles Harris has flashed in each of the three OTA practices open to reporters.
“It is consistent,” HC Adam Gase said of Harris. “He’s really done a good job of trying to implement the techniques we’re asking him to do and doing everything in the run game (and) passing game exactly what he’s coached to do. It’s hard to predict how far we can take and what’s going to happen when we get in pads.
“That’s going to be a different world just because we’ll be able to do some different things offensively as far as the run game goes and some of the trap game type things. That will be a new world for him with what we’re going to do in training camp. I think it’s just going to be an evolving process for him. He’s just going to keep learning and see how fast he can adjust to the pro game.”
- Jackson mentions that Drew Morgan has been the “most impressive” young receiver competing for the team’s No. 4, 5 or 6 job.
Rams HC Sean McVay referred to QB Jared Goff as “our guy” after Monday’s practice and said they have a lot of confidence in him moving forward.
“Jared is our guy; we have a lot of confidence in what he’s done,” McVay said, via ESPN.com. “But we have confidence in Sean as well. … We’re going to play the guys that give us the ability to win football games and the guys that are competing at the highest level. Clearly, Jared has done that so far. It’s a one-day-at-a-time process, but what he has done is just pick things up. He’s getting better every single day, and he has definitely commanded that role. He did that again today.”
Former Seahawks quarterback Brock Huard, who hosts Pete Carroll’s weekly radio show, believes the Seahawks passed on signing Colin Kaepernick because quarterback happens to be the only position where they don’t actually want competition.
“As much as Pete wants to compete at every position, quarterbacks are different. And especially when you’ve got a $20 million quarterback, and a guy that you know is your franchise, a guy that you believe in deeply,” Huard said, via Pro Football Talk. “It would have been too much. Too much for a locker room, for a quarterback room that doesn’t need it.”
