    I would totally agree. That said, you can tell he still has work to do when you compare his footwork to Trask and Franks. He seems to have the ‘working and waiting my turn’ mentality, so I hope that stays with him during the process.

    I was very surprised how tentative he looked with his footwork on that one bag drill from yesterday. I was almost expecting the coach to tell him, Come on move your ass a little bit.

    If I had to guess, coach Johnson/Mullen probably told him to be deliberately slower. With his athleticism, he probably doesn't even have to think about the mobility in the confined area of the pocket. So maybe they ask him to slow it down and work through the bags. Just a guess tho.

    I would bet you are right. His footwork may be sloppier than the older guys so they instructed him to do it in slow motion.

    McEachern is big boy football (7a).
    The reason their facilities and stadium look like a college campus is because they are. Life College (Chiropractor school) donated their old stadium to McEachern ... in addition to dozens of acres of land. It is a beautiful school and campus. Elle Duncan (ESPN anchor) went to high school there.

    Six years ago my son played at McEachern in the third round of the playoffs (feeder ball). The parents had the dumb idea of having our kids arrive to the game in three stretch limos (McEachern is not an affluent community). They KILLED us. It was 63-0 at the half. We still laugh about that decision.

    I'm glad Del Rio is on our team -- he is an elite athlete.

    I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    John McEachern founded Life Insurance Co of GA. It's his endowment that funds many of the major projects at the school. It's a massive campus and the sports complex does in fact look like a small college -with big video board, etc.. but I'm not sure Life Univ is connected in any way - I could be wrong though.

    Right. I thought Nebraska would be one of the 10 but here we are. Miami thought they had the lead on him and they may very well do, but let's see how this plays out

    He’s either not really a fan of any school or playing games. I have no idea but it is a strange list from a fan perspective.
