Rookie camp day 2 report

  • Print

Overall impressions:

Second day and, without a lot of contact drills or one-on-ones between the offensive line and defensive line, it's impossible to focus on anything other than the receivers, quarterbacks and defensive backs.

Who we liked:

#34 Emmanuel Marc, running back: Was in the B.C. Lions camp last year. He's shown exceptional quickness and good hands in the receiving drills. Haven't had a look at him as a ball carrier, but he could push Fred Reid and Yvenson Bernard if he can carry his work over to main camp.

#16 Kenny Strickland, receiver: He looks small compared to some of the other behemoths at receiver — he is 5-foot-10 — but he showed outstanding speed in both sessions today.

#88 Jabari Arthur, receiver: The big Canadian target has battled injuries for so long he has to shake off a lot of rust. But he looked good at the slotback position today and is a huge target.

#37 Alex Suber, defensive back: Just like this guy's cover skills.

#38 Jason Tate, defensive back: see above.

#7 Alex Brink, quarterback: Consistently delivers the ball to the target.

#14 Terence Jeffers-Harris, receiver: A lot of raw skill here; seems very comfy on the bigger field.

#35 Guillaume Senecal, running back: Made some solid catches today.

***

Walking wounded: RB Anthony Woodson (foot; will not practice at all in camp); WR D.J. Hall (hurt in the morning session); WR Travis Shelton (hamstring; did not practice).

Welcome aboard: The Bombers finally made official the signing of linebacker Chris Smith on Thursday. Smith was the club's second pick, 28th overall, in this year's draft. He was the defensive player of the game in Queen's Vanier Cup victory last year and was a starter for three years with the Golden Gaels.

Friday's practice session goes from 9:30 to 11:15 am. and is open to the public.

Here is head coach Paul LaPolice’s post-practice interview scrum:
