1. An increase in tempo
2. Better physicality
"[That's] to be expected. It wasn't anything me coming out and thinking it wasn't going to be," Morris said. "I did think it was slow. It was something we had to pretty much address real quick and get their attention.
"We had to give a few little reminders before we got going in practice. They got going and their tempo definitely picked up. It's amazing how those things happen. I was pleased to see that they responded to the coaching."
Three days in, Morris likes what he's seen from Tajh Boyd.
"I knew today, going in pads, a big install day for the third straight day, there was going to be some uncertainty," Morris said. "He's really picked it up. He's doing well."
He noted that Boyd has demonstrated a better understanding of the offense.
"Tajh is really stepping forward now. That's what needed to happen," Morris said.
As for the freshman skill players Boyd's working with, Morris said "their head is swimming, spinning and foggy."
"They're grasping things, but we haven't backed off of them."
With all the summer chatter about those freshmen wide receivers, BrYce McNeal has emerged through the first three days of camp.
Morris credited that to the presence of Sammy Watkins, Charone Peake and Martavis Bryant.
"His focus, his dedication -- it means something," Morris said of McNeal. "I think you're seeing that with a lot of guys that are feeling that as well, at all positions, without a doubt."
Like Monday, practice on Tuesday will be in just helmets and shoulder pads. Wednesday will be the first preseason camp practice in full pads.
Morris impressed with Boyd
