Pro Football Focus was high on the Cleveland Browns’ 2016 draft, and back on Day 2 of training camp on Saturday, they were in Berea to take in practice and log some observations. Day 2 was when practice was moved indoors due to rain. Here are some nuggets we pulled from their report:
- On the quarterbacks, PFF acknowledged the problem that Robert Griffin III, much like his Washington days, starts to go on the move when his first read is covered. However, the positive they saw is that Hue Jackson’s system is already built to accommodate this, “with receiver routes designed to uncover later in the play than is usual, catering to the fact that the QB may well be on the move and looking for an open target several seconds into it.”
- Day 2 was when there were a lot of dropped passes, and PFF echoed that. They liked how smooth WR Terrelle Pryor was in running his routes (compared to what people might expect), thought WR Corey Coleman had some issues getting his head around quick enough as he expands the types of routes he runs at the NFL level, and thought that WR Marlon Moore had a great day.
- TE E.J. Bibbs, CB Jamar Taylor, and CB Eric Patterson were called out for having solid performances.
