CB Jaylen Watkins, Florida - Was excellent in coverage on Tuesday. Perhaps the best play that we saw all day long was Watkins' interception during 1-on-1s when he was covering Tulane WR Ryan Grant. Watkins trailed the route and then darted in front on the deep dig for a tremendous interception. He was excellent in coverage in every phase of the practice.
WR Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin - Continues to get open. All day, every day. His route running is just so good and he's having little trouble getting off of press coverage. The only other receiver making more of an impact is
WR Robert Herron, Wyoming - Wow. He continues to make one catch after another at every spot on the field. Love this guy's quicks, his route running and his LA-style toughness (played his HS ball at Dorsey High in Los Angeles)
WR Kevin Norwood, Alabama - Again, looked good in competitive aspects of the practice. Go 1-on-1 with a corner and he lights it up. He went deep on Auburn CB Chris Davis, high pointed the throw from the QB and came down with a tremendous catch. He continues to shine in those situations and solid in team drills.
Many of the South DB have said that Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews is the best receiver they've faced. Not just here in Mobile but all year. He continues to show that throughout the past two days. He had some decent battles with Utah's 6'3" CB Keith McGill but Matthews came out ahead in most of those 1-on-1 situations.
After reading the review, I realized that I actually saw more of the action than I thought.
