Quarterbacks - "All of them did some good things," Phillips said. "We are progressing the right way. The ball's got to come out of our hands a little better but the things is, they are throwing the ball where it's supposed to be. We had a couple of interceptions of "feet in cement" a free play of five yards. We've told them to throw it up so those interceptions don't count. All we want to see is that we are throwing the all in the right place - we'll get the ball coming out of their hands a little later."
E. J. Fields and Aaron Boyd - Those guys are a little bit behind the others. Those guys have got to come. This is an important spring for both of them - both going into the third year in our program.
Phillips said Chandler Burden is going to be fine. He's just got to learn the assignments, He's exactly what you are looking for at left tackle. He's big, He's fast, and he's strong.
Cartier Rice is doing some good things and making a few plays, a couple of those are feet in cement plays but at least he's playing the ball. We're asking Cartier to play a lot of positions. He's playing the corner, he's playing the nickle and the dime.
The techniques have changed some and the terminology and they've just got to learn the tags that fit certain situations.
Phillips talked about how elated he was that Brian Adams is back on the field. "Where he comes from this game is important to him. He is big and fast and can catch the football."During the one on one drills Adams and Martavius Neloms got onto a heated shirmish in which both players showed some feistiness. As the secondary pride would have it, later Jarvis Walker ear-holed Adams from the blind side. All that's good in the spirit of what the head coach wants from his team.
- In the 1 on 1 passing drills 39 passes were thrown and there were eight drops and three great catches all by Randall Cobb — in the seven on seven drills 21 passes were thrown with 4 drops and one great catch by Randall Cobb. A lot of short passes were thrown. No decided advantage by any quarterback.
