From the Big Cat drill to individual workouts, here are some highlights from the afternoon:
While Collins has been taking all the first-team reps at left guard this spring, don't count out Josh Dworaczyk.
While Les Miles said Dworaczyk wouldn't be thrown in at full speed until the fall, the sixth-year lineman is no longer in a green no-contact jersey and has been taking reps in recent Big Cat drills.
While Collins would likely be the go-to guy if something happened to starting left tackle Chris Faulk, it has been Chris Davenport taking reps at the position with the second-team this spring. In his Big Cat battles this spring, Davenport - a converted defensive tackle - is well above .500 and has shown some solid strength in matchups with some of the team's bigger defensive linemen.
Jarvis Landry and Alfred Blue also scored big wins on Tuesday, and both battles got the offensive players fired up. Landry has looked strong in blocking drills this spring and should be one of the team's strongest wide receivers next fall.
Wright has continued to fill out physically and has some of the best hands on the team. It's not often you see him let a ball hit the ground during practice. It also seems Wright and Mettenberger have good chemistry.
Landry made a big deal of how the wide receivers and Mettenberger got month-long head start on the team by practicing together during their free hours after January's BCS National Championship Game loss.
During practice, Landry has his reps timed out by the quarterbacks. He allows receivers behind him on the depth chart to take reps ahead of him, but only because Landry makes certain that Mettenberger is his quarterback when he runs his routes. As always, Landry has looked crisp with both his route running and hands.
Boone was injured last week and is sidelined for the rest of the spring.
This past weekend, the offense implemented the running back screen pass into a number of different down-and-distance situations.
Feist and Louis both flash some quick feet and ability to get side-to-side without losing much momentum. Louis, who was always a combine warrior, is very impressive when the group works on footwork and cone drills.
It will be a great race to the field when the other four linebacker signees arrive to campus this summer.
With Tahj Jones currently sidelined with injury, the starting three is Barrow, Minter and Muncie, with Welter working in as the fourth linebacker and a substitute for Minter in the middle.
Both are very explosive, and Mingo has bulked up a good bit. He's nowhere near the size of Montgomery, but he's gotten considerably bigger in the arms and chest. It's evident through his play last fall and development in the weight room that Mingo has developed into much more of a player than the situational third-down option he was in past years.
