A few players stood out from this mini-camp, in my humble opinion.
* TE Visanthe Shiancoe was the absolute star of Friday's practice for the offense, with a diving catch and a one-handed catch. Shiancoe is leaner, and he is determined to show that he's not a free-agent bust.I hope that he can use the TE postion more than we did last season. TO keep defenses honest with our short passing game.
* WR Aundrae Allison has definitely made an impression, especially hauling in a few bombs from Tarvaris Jackson. Allison flashed his potential last year, especially on a 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He is an explosive athlete with good hands.
* DE Jared Allen surely humbled second-year offensive tackle Chase Johnson on a couple of snaps on Saturday. Allen also didn't fare too poorly against starter Bryant McKinnie, getting enough penetration on Friday to bat down a pass attempt from Tarvaris Jackson.
With these results coming from some of our potential playmakers this upcoming season. How can you not be excited to see what kind of road that is ahead of us with the coming season. I know that it is a little early.
