Eagles fly into fall camp

I'm back with a few reflections on the Eagles' first day of fall camp, which was held Wednesday on the grass fields behind the athletic facilities: Head coach Beau Baldwin said he was pleased with the overall pace of the practice, especially the mental aspect of everyone being on the same page. As I overhead safeties coach Jeff Schmedding say it, “doing the reps in your head and not standing around.” …  .

Speaking of which, no was standing around on crutches, with LB Zach Johnson (here is his interview with the media before practice), WR Brandon Kaufman, RB Demetrius Bronson and OL Steve Forgette all 100 percent. … The only apparent casualty is LB Jordan Pulu, who has an injured meniscus suffered while working out alone during the summer. An MRI is scheduled for Thursday. … On the practice field, Baldwin and QB coach Zak Hill were able to watch five QB;s in drills instead of two last spring (I almost think they wish they could throw a few, but there were arms aplenty on Wednesday) … They all looked sharp (here is a brief video) but transfer Kyle Padron was being tested by some very aggressive coverages during the 7-on-7 drills that concluded practice. Meanwhile Vernon Adams threw some nice balls, especially over the top, and still showed mobility despite picking up a few pounds of muscle. … Speaking of which, on the other side of the ball, true freshman Miquiyah Zamora out of Pasco looks like a safety in a linebacker's body, but he showed plenty of skill, including one interception. Practice is at 3 p.m. today, with a 9 a.m. session on Friday.
