With the Wednesday morning session in the books, the Cleveland Browns came out again for the evening session and fans were treated to some more action in 7-on-7, 11-on-11, and goal line drills. How did the offense and defense do?
TRAINING CAMP REPORT - DAY 5 [EVENING] (8/4/10)
Offensive Line Shake-Up: This morning, it was reported that Shawn Lauvao (RG) and Tony Pashos (RT) played with the first unit. During the evening session, the coaches mixed things up and moved the combination of Floyd Womack (RG) and John St. Clair (RT) to the first unit. Any unit with St. Clair sounds like a second team though, so the fact that Womack wasn't paired with Pashos still sounds like a plus for Lauvao.
11-on-11 Red Zone Drills: There were a lot of touchdowns thrown by the quarterbacks in these drills, according to reports. For QB Jake Delhomme, his highlights were connecting with TE Ben Watson and WR Mohamed Massaquoi for touchdowns. For backup Seneca Wallace, his highlights were hitting TE Evan Moore and WR Bobby Engram for scores. Engram reportedly beat S Larry Asante in the right corner of the end zone and received a tongue lashing from the coaching staff as a result.
More 11-on-11 Drills: Another drill saw Wallace hit WR Johnathan Haggerty for a touchdown, but when the duo tried to hook up again on a jump ball, Haggerty couldn't come down with the football with Joe Haden in coverage. The ABJ notes that rookie wideout Carlton Mitchell dropped a pass thrown by Brett Ratliff. Mitchell seems to be having quite a few drops being mentioned by reporters.
Goal Line Series: Practice ended with goal line sessions, which the ABJ and Plain Dealer both covered in detail. Listed below is a recap of each goal line session:
Gocong Picks Delhomme: The first-team offense had three attempts to get the ball in from the one yard line. On the first play, Delhomme was denied a quarterback sneak by S Abram Elam. On the second play, RB Jerome Harrison was stopped for no gain. On the final attempt, LB Chris Gocong intercepted Delhomme on a floating pass. Advantage, defense.
Second Team Offense Thrives: The second team offense did a much better job with their goal line opportunities, scoring on two of their three attempts. The first play saw RB James Davis punching it into the end zone for a touchdown. The second play saw QB Seneca Wallace connecting with TE Evan Moore in the back right corner of the end zone. Wallace tried to hit Moore again on the third and final play, but CB Joe Haden stepped in to break up the play.
- Two Drops: Earlier in the evening practice during 7-on-7 drills, it was discouraging to hear that TE Evan Moore and WR Joshua Cribbs each had a drop. Backup tight end Alex Smith, who I've been waiting to hear something about, caught a touchdown pass from Delhomme during these drills.
