Free-View: 18 Fast Lane Updates

Today we give you a Free-View of what being a Subscriber at The OBR is like. Since last night, our Insider Lane Adkins has posted 18 updates in his Forum "The Fast Lane." Here is a glimpse at a couple of them.

On Joe Schobert

The rookie LB has taken a primary role as an OLB in training camp sessions. Like most rookies, Schobert has had his ups and downs in practice due to thinking through the process, rather than instinctively playing the game. Coming from early session notes, Schobert has work to do on sealing the edge and has displayed a tendency of getting caught inside/traffic.

A belief among Browns staffers is Schobert is likely to flash as practice sessions progress -- early indications are Schobert is better in the hitting environment

On Players Who Have Surprised So Far

WR Terrelle Pryor - 

"We watched him grow, he was taking in everything like a sponge and you could see the pride and expectations he has for himself. He was given a set of things to work on between OTAs and camp and he did just that. He is not only competing, but he's been one of the best WRs in camp to this point."

Rookie OL Spencer Drango -

"The expectations we have for him are fairly high, but he is coming much quicker than we anticipated, he not only competes out there, but handles himself -- and we have moved him around a bit. He may legitimately have the skill-set to play outside-in."

CB Jamar Taylor

"We knew he was talented, but has had injury issues and some other noise. Looking at him, we felt the risk was worth the reward -- he hasn't been a player that was in trouble, maybe a bit misunderstood, but a young guy that a change of scenery could help -- that's where we are and he's been very competitive as a nickle and dime and squarely in the mix right now."

On Danny Shelton

"We're expecting Danny (Shelton) to be a different player than he was a season ago and we're asking him to play differently. He has done a great job getting his weight down, he's been active in film, now it's all about being instinctive, keeping his pad level down and getting through the linemen -- he's getting there."
