MM said he mistook undrafted RB Pease for Lacy at one point when he broke off a nice run. He also said Coleman stood out today.

I guess it's just to fill the unit, but I'm surprised to see Datko at guard. Seems like square peg, round hole.

Cleveland is a Guard, or so I hear

They weren't doing positions today.

I am in complete agreement with this. If you had asked me to guess the rookie camp "first look" line from the list of five starting names I would have guessed from left...

Bakhtiari, Taylor, Gerhart, Tretter, Datko instead of...

Bakhtiari, Datko, Gerhart, Taylor, Tretter as reported.

It is a bad sign for Datko that he is being asked to prove something at guard.

As a fan of Tretter, it is a great sign that he gets a shot at RT.

I wouldn't totally say that. If he's projecting to be a LT, LG isn't a bad spot. Still on the blindside. Tretter was a Day 2 pick and he was a Day 3 pick. I think it's more of a pecking order type situation with the OL right now in camp. If nothing else you're getting a look at what they can do (in shorts) at those spots. I still think there's a better shot at Datko as an OT and Tretter as an OG/OC than Datko as an OG and Tretter as an OT.

Yeah, I would not read into the positions they played today one bit.

I would ... and I agree with the thought that it's a bad sign for Datko.

Breno Giacomini (who like Datko) has the body for an OT, not for inside, didn't play inside until the year he was cut and basically had no chance of making the final roster.

Of course Breno Giacomini is now a starting RT for the Seahawks. But the point is... as soon as the Packers put him at OG, he was gone.

In my head a high-pitched male voice with an Italian accent is subvocalizing the process of kicking a volleyball really, really far so that the coaches notice him.

I did kicking duties in HS and did some research on the topic. Most coaches suggest you use soccer balls or volleyballs during practice because they are bulkier but easier to kick. Once you train yourself to kicking a heavier/bulkier object and controlling that heavier/bulkier object, you will be able to kick farther and have better control of the football. I remember seeing college kickers use soccer balls to kick FG's during practice.

All I could think when I saw that photo was "Does a chin strap still work if you don't have a chin?"

Yep. Maintaining the flight path of a soccer ball is a bit more difficult. I did some kicking with a range of 45-48 (played soccer my whole life though) and transitioning to football was easier. Just need to find that rhythm.

Nice. Didn't know that.
