The same drill featured a terrific matchup involving number one cornerback Cameron Chism and All-ACC wide receiver Torrey Smith. The talent of the two players was obviously top notch, but what really stood out when they faced off was their physicality, which reached a climax when on one play, both players ended up on the ground from fighting so hard for position.
The quarterback and receiver drills were interesting to watch, as both the signal-callers and wide-outs seemed to struggle with out-patterns to the sideline. Even experienced receivers like Torrey Smith and Emani Lee-Odai were struggling to haul in passes that seemed to be at least somewhat catchable. After watching a few too many drops, the coaching staff spent extra time with the players on the pattern until they began to look and feel more comfortable.
Jamarr Robinson continued his streak of strong practices with another superb showing. He showed velocity on all passes, and even showed a tight spiral and terrific accuracy on a couple of long bombs downfield.
Not surprisingly, senior offensive lineman Paul Pinegar looked terrific in blocking drills. The tackle-turned-guard-turned-center had no problem keeping his man in front of him, and was noticeably lauded by the coaching staff for an impressive performance.
