ESPN UA: Practice One WRs and TEs

Orlando, Fla— practice notes from East Recruiting Analyst Bob Lichtenfels who was on hand watching the team's practice. Here are the notes from Saturday's first practice session.

White WRs and TEs:

Jarvis Landry  Convent/La./Lutcher  5-11/181   (LSU)

Landry was by far the most impressive wide receiver on the White team during Saturday's first practice. Landry runs precise routes and gets out of his breaks quick. He has very strong hands and comes down with everything. He is slippery, when he gets a crease he can take it to the house. Landry may not have blazing forty-yard dash speed, but he has game speed. He looks to me like the most college ready receiver here.

DaVaris Daniels  Vernon Hills/Ill.  6-2/164  (Notre Dame)

Daniels really struggled in the position specific drills. he was rounding off his routes and dropped four-five balls. He came around in the 7v7s and caught a few balls. He is very undersized and is a definite red shirt candidate. Showed some flash, so we're expecting him to rebound the next few days.

Quan Bray  LaGrange/Ga./Troup County   (Undecided)

Bray is working as a wide receiver, so there is a learning curve there. He did seem to adjust well to the switch. He is small and looks like a nice fit as a slot receiver. He is very elusive and dangerous in the open field and could be a very good return man. he made several tough diving catches.

Ben Koyack   Oil City/Pa.  6-5/228  (Notre Dame)

Koyack had an outstanding practice on Saturday. He worked with the offensive line while they were doing their blocking drills and he showed he could seal, as well as chipping on his combo blocks while getting to the second level. Koyack has very good hands and rarely misses a pass. He showed he is a complete tight end and we'll see if he keeps it up the rest of the week.

Jay Rome   Valdosta/Ga.  6-5/230  (Undecided)

Rome didn't look real explosive off the snap, he seemed to lumber at times. He had trouble adjusting to the ball in the air. He is the classic inline blocking tight end. He has a big thick frame and shows a willingness to put his hat on a body and block.


Red WR's and TE's:

Ja'Juan Story   Brooksville/Fla./Nature Coast Tech  6-3/190  (Florida)

Story may have the most upside of any receiver in this game. He has an outstanding frame and uses his body well to shield defenders from the ball. He adjust well while the ball is in flight. He shows the ability to accelerate past defenders and is a deep threat. Probably the most game breaking ability of any of the Red team wide receivers that we saw on day one.

Devon Blackmon   Fontana (Cal.) Summit  6-0/180   (Undecided)

Blackmon showed the ability to separate from a defender. Used his hands to catch the ball and that has been an issue with a lot of the Red team. He went over the middle a few times and caught the ball well in traffic.
