Here is a general summary of what's been going on this week at OTA's so far:
- Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is back on the field after missing nearly 18 months of football with his knee injury, and is feeling pretty good. He has a great shot at rotating in and out at the cornerback position for the team if he can regain his form before being injured.
- Kenny Stills has been balling out lately, catching multiple TD's from Ryan Tannehill and impressing early with his speed and knowledge of the playbook. He is competing in a VERY heavy WR group, including Leonte Carroo, Jakeem Grant, Griff Whalen for reps.
- Speaking of our QB, Griff Whalen notes how impressed he is with Tannehill's knowledge and leadership early on in learning Adam Gase's offense. stating, "his grasp of the offense is really impressive this early on. It's been good having that leadership in the huddle
- Rookie kicker Marshall Koehn has impressed early and has a legit chance at upending Andrew Franks for the starting kicking job. Length strength between the two is nearly identical.
As for the defense....
It is good to see Cameron Wake getting back to his old form before he tore his Achilles last season, and Billy Turner, Jermon Bushrod, Dallas Thomas and Kraig Urbik are all getting reps at guard as well as at tackle.
The team is looking to piece together the best 5 as a UNIT, regardless of who is at what position. Laremy Tunsil continues to get reps at left guard.
