Carmichael's Mini-Camp Press Conference
 
1 Attachment(s)
Can you talk about what you have seen from Nick Toon so far?

I think obviously any young guy coming into this offense has a lot to learn and the nice thing about this part of mini-camp for the rookies is this is the third time they are here in the install. They are here at the rookie minicamp, they are here at the beginning of OTAs, and then we start back over for minicamp. I thought as the OTAs moved on a little bit, the stuff is starting to catch up to them but you would say hes got it down now. Im still impressed with his hands and he runs good routes, so we are excited about him.

Can you talk about his one-handed catch in the endzone during a practice?

Hes got great hands, focus and concentration.

How has Marques Colston looked so far?

Hes a true professional. Hes been in the system quite a few years so he knows what we are trying to accomplish. He is special for us, he really is.

Is he in mid-season form yet?

I dont know. We still have training camp coming up so he will be by the season.

With the CBA affecting what you guys can and cant do more than ever, what has changed as far as evaluating?

I would say that it is probably more upfront. Its more about technique right now, learning the system for those guys and making sure they are doing it they way that we are coaching it. Obviously, there is no bull rush or anything like that happening. The run game is hard to evaluate that because they are taking two steps and letting the defense go. Well wait until training camp when the pads are on to see those guys. It even affects the tight ends. We brought in Jacob (Byrne) as a blocking tight end so its hard for him to show us what he can do until we get to training camp.

Need at least one of the young WR's to step up this year ... of course, two would be better ...

Yeah, we might carry six wide receivers on the roster this year.
