Browns Mini-Camp Observations

The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak takes a look at who did well, who made nice plays, and offers some post-camp thoughts. Scott is joining the OBR in 2006 to help us provide more in-depth coverage from Berea and to provide insight for our exclusive Ask the Insiders forum.

WHO LOOKED GOOD

  • Joe Jurevicius showed sure hands and looked smooth running routes. His best play was a sliding catch in the back of the end zone in a red zone drill. When the Browns signed him, I thought he was a third receiver. Now, I think he's a legitimate No. 2 receiver.
  • Kellen Winslow walked with a slight hitch but ran full speed. He caught almost everything thrown his way – which was a lot – and showed the edge he brought from Miami. He talked trash, dunked after a touchdown and threw the ball at a rookie defensive back after catching a fade in the end zone. It was only minicamp, but the offense certainly looks designed to involve Winslow often.
  • William Green showed a burst on a couple of runs through the middle.
  • Backup kicker Jeff Chandler went 3-for-3 on long field goals in the two-minute drill that concluded minicamp. He hit from 45, 48 and 52 yards.


SOME NICE PRACTICE PLAYS

  • Sean Jones stepped in front of Winslow to make a nice interception.
  • Rookie linebacker Kenny Kern tipped a pass at the line, then made the interception.
