When you watch a football practice at which pads aren't worn the players you notice most are the receivers. They have an enormous advantage against the defensive backs; quarterbacks are not under pressure and receivers have time to run their routes.
So they all look good. But even in that context some stand out. Three did at rookie practice Wednesday morning.
Who was that diving to the turf in front of rookie cornerback Josh Norman to grab the ball? It's Lamont Bryant, a 6-5, 225-pound receiver out of Morgan State. Bryant has looked good through the spring and summer camps.
Who's that deep on the left side? Cam Newton flicks his wrist and the ball is in the hands of Hubert Anyiam, a 6-0 rookie from Oklahoma State, who consistently finds openings Wednesday.
Who's the receiver who seems to move at a speed nobody on the field does? It's Jared Green, son of Redskin great Darrell Green.
Green, 6-1 and 185 pounds, played at Southern.
He doesn't run. He glides.
