Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

It's training camp and it's early.... but I have been on twitter a lot, I've read the various reports and I have a early training camp stock up/stock down....

Stock up: Nick Toon..... His name was all over OTA's... It seems like his name is at least early on all over training camp as well. It is said that in an NFL players career there is a point where the light turns on.... Sounds like Nick is at that point.... don't think it could have come at a better time as he is on the bubble IMO.

Stock Down: Corey White...... Again it's early but every TD that has been given up early on has had his name on it. They were talking about moving him to safety....... on a team full of safeties, that's not good.... Maybe I'm reading to much into it but Robinson has received a lot of praise while White as of right now ( again still early) has been the camp goat....

Discuss..... Provide your own....

Anybody hear anything on Tim Flanders? I just have a hunch that he might be good.

I've heard various reports of all our DBS getting beat. Bailey got toasted by Morgan, vaccaro was beaten several times, Robinson got toasted by toon. I've read very little about white getting beat.

I've heard Lewis is doing great though.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

I hear Baptiste is looking a little better than people anticipated. I know when we drafted him he was looked at as raw with a huge upside but seems to be picking the game up quick. Any truth to this?

I haven't heard anything specifically, but I did read something the other day about his college coaches saying he became a real student of the game and they expected he would learn a lot from Keenan and Champ. I hope it's true, I'm rooting for the guy like crazy. I think he's got greatness in his future if used to his strengths.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

Since I didnt go today, I cannot speak for that day. But Friday and Saturday, the DBs you could tell didnt really try real hard to mess up the timing of the offense. For instance, Drew was moving around the pocket once and couldnt find someone, so he threw a pass to Jimmy on the right side about 15 yards down. Vinnie and another DB instead of picking it just acted in the motions, but let the ball get to Jimmy for the reception. I would say today was a little different, especially since pads were on, but I got the feel of the defense more worried about getting to proper spots in the D rather than messing up the play.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

I am happy to hear Toon is looking good. Although he is probably on the bubble I've been saying that neither Coleman or Hull have much chance of beating him out. I could see Hull on the team in a Steve Gleason role though. But that's a guess with no evidence to back it up. Everyone seems to think Tim Flanders is the next Pierre Thomas or Khiry Robinson but I think he's practice squad at best. Who's spot is he gonna take?

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

It sounds like Coleman is playing a LOT better than he did at rookie camp, which is encouraging. I still think he is a practice squad guy or IR since we seem to "red shirt" rookie WRs a lot.

I have not read anything about Corey White getting beat a lot. In fact I have not read anything about him at all. I do think P-Rob is easily the frontrunner at #2 corner if his leg is right. I like both players a lot. I do believe Champ is probably firmly locked into the nickel/slot role at this point.
