Sam Ehlinger

  • Praised Calvin Anderson for pass pro, athleticism
  • Year 2 - you understand who you are now, now you can focus on attacking the defense
  • The game is starting to slow down for him
  • Tre Watson is a leader
  • Kris Boyd having a great Fall camp
  • Young DBs are fun to watch
  • Keaontay Ingram is football smart and has wiggle

Shane Buechele

  • Feels he’s getting better protection this year
  • The RBs have benefitted from another year in the offense
  • TEs are important in the offense, it’s nice to have some
  • A reporter asks if Shane if he “has been yelling in his mirror” to practice vocal leadership
  • Keaontay Ingram is “dynamic.” Has been good in pass pro. Needs to get into the film room and the playbook. Physically, he’s good. It’s a mental game now
