"A lot of guys have done a good job of picking up their play level, are learning a lot of things and getting better. Joel Figueroa is playing really well now. Chris Barney has done a lot of good things out there on the offensive line. Dedrick Epps is coming along. Maturity wise they are picking it up. "

"Chavez is doing a good job. He is playing a lot at corner right now and is doing a great job, making a lot of plays. Chavez always has skills to be one of the good guys. We're really excited about the way he's progressing and coming along."
