Fall Camp Photo Essay - Week 2

Entering week two of Fall camp, many of the newcomers have had a chance to become acclimated to the fast paced tempo and intensity of college football. With the depth chart in full fluctuation due to the inevitable rash of injuries that occurs annually, there are many positions up for grabs as the Ducks prepare for Saturday's closed scrimmage.

A more rigorous conditioning program is one aspect of a more intense and up-tempo Fall camp for Coach Bellotti and the Ducks this year.

Nick Cody has been on hand for practice the past few days and looks to be about as solid of a commit as they come.

Linebackers Kevin Garrett and A.J. Tuitele traded places on the sideline on Tuesday as Garrett returned from an injury while Tuitele was held out with a sore hammy after having practiced on Monday.

All five quarterbacks got a chance in this drill with five wide-outs running set routes to work on timing.

Andre Crenshaw appears to be battling with Remene Alston for the third spot on the depth chart behind Jonathan Stewart and Jeremiah Johnson.

Freshman Anthony Gildon and Tonio Cellotto are living up to their hype and could both see playing time this year.

Standing at 6'7 250lb. and just a redshirt freshman, Brandon Bair is an imposing presence with a ton of upside and raw ability. With all that size, it's almost scary that he is always one of the first players to finish in line drills, a testament to his work ethic.

Brian Paysinger, practicing the end-around with Charles Neal blocking here, is the most consistent of the wide receivers.

Cameron Colvin has the speed to go the distance on any given play as evidence by his touchdown run during Monday's practice where he took a short pass and put on the burners.

Darrion Weems looks like a potential early contributor with great athleticism and size. With better conditioning, he should challenge for significant playing time next year.

H-Back David Paulson makes an attempt at an over the shoulder grab...

...which he juggled in the air before eventually reeling it in.

If he can manage to stay healthy, Derrick Jones could be a dangerous weapon at Offensive Coordinator Chip Kelly's disposal.

Coach Bellotti has been happy with the progression of QB Dennis Dixon thus far in Fall camp identifying his decision making as appearing improved from the previous season.

The defensive line is deep with talent and skill. From left to right: Tonio Cellotto, Dominic Glover, Victor Filipe, David Faaeteete, and Will Tukuafu.

Drew Davis has been practicing with the second unit the past few days and has looked good out of his breaks.

With Ryan Keeling's recent injury, Ed Dickson is now more important than ever at the tight end/H-back position.

Jairus Byrd was wearing a protective cast on his right hand on Tuesday. Byrd is another possibility to replace Harper at free safety in case Harper's injury is serious enough to keep him out.

Jaison Williams has caught nearly every ball thrown his way this Fall. His tendency to drop the easy balls last year kept him from becoming one of the nation's best receivers.

John Laidet has a lot of raw ability but Coach Osbourne has him on the right track.

Malachi Lewis practiced with the H-backs on Tuesday and struggled a little bit early on as he drops this pass off his finger tips.

By the end of practice, Lewis started to make it look natural out there.

Ryan Keeling watches his teammates go through drills after breaking a bone in his right hand on Monday.

The Ducks have worked a lot on fundamentals this Fall after a mistake filled season last year. Here, Alston takes a handoff and turns it up the field.

Jonathan Stewart, held out with a sore ankle, and Coach Campbell watch as Charles Neal takes the handoff from Justin Roper.

Titus Jackson and Jeff Maehl are potential replacements for the injured Matthew Harper at free safety.
