Quick Hits!

Stock Up!

Corey Fuller – Though he didn’t show up and dominate every play like he has the past couple of practices, Fuller continued to show strongly today.  The press drills really showed his improvement, but his routes kept him from getting a full mention a third day in a row.

Bill Bentley – After struggling on Saturday, Bentley got a shot in the arm from the coaches when Darius Slay was held out with injury.  He was the first corner called up  to play opposite Rashean Mathis and he held his own on the outside.

Nevin Lawson – Lawson had a rough start to practice on Saturday which was a huge departure from his disaster of a practice on Friday.  Today he took another step forward and really looked like he settled down and just played.  He still drew flags, but looked confident, improved.

Jed Collins – An established veteran at FB rarely gets recognition, but Collins lit up several linebackers during whole team drills today and opened up running lanes for Theo Riddick and George Winn.  My only notes on him were simply “Jed Collins is mean.”

Daryl Tapp – I’ve mentioned his surprisingly good play as a pass rusher recently but today Tapp showed some good moves as a run defender.  He shot a gap on an inside stunt and took out Steven Miller as he was being handed the ball.

Cornelius Lucas – Size aside, Lucas has actually been playing pretty well.  He once again took over LT duties and held his own no matter who was facing him.  I get now why the Lions threw a bucket of cash at him this off-season.
