I tried to focus on offensive and defensive line.

Defensively, Roy Robertston-Harris and Jonathon Bullard each had sacks and were active but they don't hold the point of attack as well as the departed Unrein.  Rookie Bilal Nichols also had a sack.  So I think the DE position is in good shape along with Akiem Hicks.  Backup NT John Jenkins looks like he lost a few pounds and made a nice hustle downfield tackle. 

Super impressed with Isaiah Irving.  Nice speed and bend on the pass rushes.  And Kylie Fitts was almost as good pass rushing but better against the run.  I liked the draft pick at the time and now I really like the draft pick.  We'll see how they do against better competition as we progress through the PS.

Offensively, Jordan Morgan struggled from the get-go.  He's basically a rookie but he looks like a project (read practice squad).  Rashard Coward who just converted from d-line to RT was raw but I thought did OK considering.   Bradley Sowell's play makes me value Charles Leno even more.  Watford could make the team as a backup.  But I don't think I saw Grasu or Daniels out there...maybe I wasn't paying as much attention in the 2nd half?

Grizzly's guy Wims looks like he has a good chance to make the team.  The announcers said he wasn't a speed guy but he ran a respectable 4.53 and has length and can track the ball.   Ayers looked much faster than his 4.7 combine times - but that time was from a couple years ago when he was a rookie.

Chase Daniels makes Mark Sanchez look good.
