Let's start with Offensive position battles...
We have some interesting ones here.
First we have the battle of the WRs.
Was signed as an UDFA back in 2010 and has spent his time on an off the practice squad, playing musical chairs with Sean Can'tfield. I've always liked Tanner, and this is likely a do or die year for him.
was drafted in the 4th round in 2012. the 122nd pick spent last year on IR after suffering a foot injury. Yes it needed surgery, but we all know this is a favorite ploy of the organization, to keep players from being poached from the practice squad. Toon has the prototypical, build for todays WRs in the NFL. 6'4" and 218 lbs.
Also has a NFL pedigree.
Parents are Al and Jane Toon ... father starred as wide receiver (and in track, as well) at Wisconsin (1982-84), leaving UW as school's career receiving leader (131 catches, 2,103 yards, 19 TDs) ... father was inducted into UW Hall of Fame in 1995 ... Al Toon was No. 10 pick overall in 1985 NFL Draft and played eight years with N.Y. Jets .
and Kenny Stills
Kenny also has an NFL pedigree.
Good route runner, good hands, can adjust to the ball...sounds like a dream receiver for Drew, 6', 194 lbs. Only dig on him is a perceived lack of physicality.In this video against West Virginia, Kenny does a decent job of blocking for the FB. It's a long video, but you'll see the play from about 2:20 to 2:30 on the vid. Might have gotten away with a holding call there.
So that's the WR battles I see of most interest in training camp. What's your take.
This turned out a lot longer than I thought, so I'll have to make this a multi-part series.
