News: 2017 American Solar Eclipse Jasper Colt-USA TODAY

Herman held forth after Monday’s practice:

  • Roach is back practicing
  • Kyle Porter is non-contact, but doing a lot of drill/scout work
  • Scout teams have been formed. Every year Herman has been a coach, someone from the scout team has been called up and thrown into the fire
  • Chris Brown, Andrew Beck & Elijah Rodriguez will all miss the Maryland opener. Brown has a 4-6 week injury
  • They’re starting to introduce Maryland prep and simulate a game week preparation
  • Current RB depth chart: Warren-Porter-Johnson-Young
  • John Burt has been running with the 1’s. He’s exhibited better consistency and Herman praised his body of work over three weeks of camp
  • The 2nd group DL has made strides. Graham/Wilbon/Chisholm/Daniels will all be expected to play. Omenihu is considered a de facto starter alongside Nelson-Ford-Roach (as predicted and explained in TTFB)
  • To date DeShon Elliott has graded highest of the safeties, Kris Boyd the cornerbacks
  • Gary Johnson was the first player to lose his newcomer helmet stripe. Now joined by Taq’uon Graham, Derek Kerstetter, Cade Brewer, Josh Thompson
  • Singled out Dorian Leonard as doing a 180 in attitude since staff arrived. Working hard and leading (the potential depth we have at WR is scary)
