What they're saying…
"[Breeland] has been good. He's competitive. He's got a great presence about him. He goes against some awfully good players every day. As the saying goes, iron sharpens iron. He couldn't get better work on a daily basis. He loves to compete. I've noticed that he's his own worst critic. He has the ability to really make leaps and bounds in improvement, just as a player, because of that humility that he has and the tough-mindedness that he has."
"Travis Blanks is off to a great start. He's a very focused young man, very focused, very determined. He's already, I think, earned the respect of his teammates with how he's been able to absorb the knowledge. He's been working since the day he got here."
"Right now, [working] at free safety. When [Hall] gets back, definitely, that's where I want to be at, the boundary [cornerback]. I'm pretty much learning everything right now. [Venables] wants to fit me in anywhere."
