Practice Report (3/18)

A few tidbits from the early part of Thursday's practice...

-- Watched the QBs for a while and, as Mike Bobo promised, Zach Mettenberger was working with the No. 1 unit. Most of what I watched was handoff drills, and Bobo spent some time working with Mett on watching the ball into the hands of the tailback and keeping an eye on the follow-through. Richt also took Mett aside for some pointers.

-- The O line groups were as follows:

First team (R-L) Josh Davis, Chris Davis, Ben Jones, Cordy Glenn and Clint Boling
Second team (R-L) Jonathan Owens, Ben Harden, Chris Burnette, Kolton Houston and A.J. Harmon.

-- In the early defensive drills, each D unit spent time working with each D coach. Scott Lakatos worked with all players on stripping the ball, Warren Belin worked with players on getting off blocks, Rodney Garner worked with players on pass rush, and Todd Grantham worked on sled drills.

-- Speaking of Todd Grantham, his brother, Tony -- a linebackers coach at Navy -- was in attendance today.

-- The starting lineup in the secondary remained the same for the second straight practice: Brandon Boykin and Vance Cuff at corner and Shawn Williams and Bacarri Rambo at safety.

-- The last two periods we watched, the linebackers and secondary worked together on coverage drills. Darryl Gamble and Akeem Dent worked at the Mike and Moe positions (i.e. the inside 'backers). Cornelius Washington was in at OLB. At one point, Grantham got in the face of Cuff for a slip-up in coverage -- but Cuff was hardly the only person to hear some vocal critiques. Grantham is definitely the loudest guy on the field. We'll have some good video of that coming in the next couple of days.

-- Prince Miller and Bryan Evans were in attendance at practice today, too.

-- Again, no significant green jerseys to report.

Where is Justin Anderson? What about Dallas Lee?

Anderson is out for the spring -- that was announced a few weeks back. Not sure on Lee, but he's struggled with some health problems since last year. I'll check into that though.

Thanks, hadn't heard about Justin Anderson being out. Hope he's back in shape by fall. That second team OL looks a little sketchy.
