Figured there are a lot of tweets and stuff so we should dedicate a thread to it.


Latavius Murray:
Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
Rookie RB Latavius Murray an imposing player. Big, tall, fast and strong.

Quote:
Jerry McDonald ‏@Jerrymcd
RB Latavius Murray looked very good as a receiver. Didn't see him drop a ball, could be a good screen guy

Quote:
Levi Damien @LeviDamien
Latavius Murray makes nice one-handed grab in flat. #Raiders

Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
Rookie RB Latavius Murray looks like a handful once he gets into the open field

Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Another nice grab by Latavius Murray from Tyler Wilson. Curious to see damage he could do in pads


Tyler Wilson:
Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Big difference in velocity between QB Wilson and undrafted FA Kyle Padron ... As well there should be.

Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
@Tyler_Wilson8 throws with such velocity that some receivers are struggling to catch the ball. Wilson easily the player standing out most.

Yet another well-thrown pass by @Tyler_Wilson8

DJ Hayden:
Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Coach Dennis Allen spending lots of time with defensive secondary during drills. D.J. Hayden practicing. Looks fine. No one-on-one stuff.

Quote:
Levi Damien @LeviDamien
DJ Hayden uses his wingspan to break up a sideline pass. Wideout looked open. #Raiders

Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
Nice pass breakup by CB @_Go_DJ_ on well-thrown pass by @Tyler_Wilson8

Quote:
Levi Damien ‏@LeviDamien
@jraider1297 check my timeline. I tweeted about DJ Hayden playing well. He looked very good.

Brice Butler:

Quote:
Levi Damien ‏@LeviDamien
After another nice pluck by Butler, he drops one a lil behind him from Tyler Wilson. #Raiders

Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Nice deep grab by Butler from Padron

Quote:
Levi Damien @LeviDamien
Brice Butler continues to make long catches with several DB's in tow. Vernon also making nice underneath catches. #Raiders

Quote:
Steve Corkran ‏@CorkOnTheNFL
Rookie WR Brice Butler does nice job adjusting to ball in the air, hauls in deep pass in stride.

Quote:
Levi Damien ‏@LeviDamien
Brice Butler makes long catch along sideline. Showing skills that got him drafted. #Raiders



DJ looking good and Butler is my pick for this year's Raider Rookie Sensation WR.

Others:
Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
Rookie Menelik Watson getting some time at right offensive tackle, as expected.

Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Team session Raiders 7th round pick Bass working with hand on ground as right end. Rookie camp, will probably get work elsewhere.

Quote:
Jerry McDonald @Jerrymcd
Mychal Rivera moves like a wide receiver after catch ... Don't see him being much of an in-line guy based on size, build

Quote:
Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL
Rookie TE Nick Kasa just clanked a downfield pass. Billed as a guy with reliable hands.

Quote:
Levi Damien ‏@LeviDamien
Conner Vernon looks legit. Hasn't dropped a pass from what I've seen. Crisp route runner, doesn't break stride, watches ball in. #Raiders

Quote:
Steve Corkran ‏@CorkOnTheNFL 1h
Undrafted WR Conner Vernon looks like a promising prospect. Might be this year's @rodstreater80

Quote:
Steve Corkran ‏@CorkOnTheNFL

Can't wait to see T.Wilson play in preseason. Better watch out for him.

My prediction on surprise guy was before and will still be Butler. He'll perform well above his draft status.

Both of these. I had a feeling Butler would be Streater 2.0. Deep scouting ftw if he pans out. Love me some Wilson.

Hey guys!

Wondering if anyone has heard anything about Brian Leonhardt TE from Bemidji State. My brother is the QB up there and i know Brian pretty well. He is a beast of an athlete and i'm hoping for the best. Any news would be great!

Good Luck Next season!

By the way, D.J Hayden is a STUD i wanted the Bucs to snag him real bad! lol

Standouts

Latavius Murray, RB - He's big, has great hands, and runs with authority. Read more about his day and what he had to say about it here.

Brice Butler, WR - Sixth round pick out of San Diego State put on a clinic for the defensive backs trying to cover him. He made several fantastic catches on the day. His first nice catch in team drills came on an underthrown ball which he caught off of a tip from the defender. He was Tyler Wilson's favorite target all day and there was no mystery as to why. He was routinely getting open and making catches when the ball was thrown his way.

Tyler Wilson, QB - There is no question as to why he was considered by some to be one of the top quarterbacks in this draft. He threw tight spirals with great velocity and accuracy all day long. Granted, this is with no real rush in his face and therefore plenty of time to watch plays develop and go through reads, but that isn't what we're talking about here. We're talking about his first step and this first step was a big leap forward.

DJ Hayden, CB - As would be expected, he was far and away the best defensive back on the field. He was shadowing receivers all day and if he gave up a catch, I didn't see it. There were two particular plays he defended nicely. On one throw, the receiver made a double move and broke up the sideline and looked to be open. But, Hayden turned just in time to leap out and smack the ball down for an incompletion. Another time, he was so far in the receiver's hip pocket, he got to the spot before the receiver did and nearly picked it off.

Conner Vernon, WR - While Butler was stretching the field, Vernon was having his way underneath. He was masterful as the slot receiver in this offense. He looked smooth and polished in individual drills and didn't miss a beat in the team drills. He looks to be everything Raiders fans hoped he would be coming in as the ACC all-time career receiving leader and is officially on watch to be the next UDFA gem for the Raiders.

McFadden didnt get hurt putting the flour on his legs did he. For real though How can a guy with those legs be such a good RB when healthy.
