    Question We are your eyes at camp...what do you want us to look for?



    At least one representative from 24x7 will be at Training Camp every day. We'll use this thread as an ongoing sticky to allow you to direct us to be your eyes and ears.

    What haven't we covered in Camp Notes that you'd like us to address? We value your opinion and quite frankly YOU are why we are here. We'll do our best to address everyone's questions.

    Fire when ready and thank you for all of your support!

    Torrey Smith's improvement as far as route running & catching with his hands and not his body. We know he's fast and is an effective 9 runner and screen receiver...but I want to see him develop into a solid route runner as well.

    Which of the LB'ers are standing out?

    Which of the guards are standing out?

    Which of the running backs behind Rice are standing out?

    McKinnie update. Harbaugh hasn't even seen him recently. How does McKinnie look and do they have him practicing as normal?

    Damian Berry--how's he looking with the extra weight?

    Have they gotten Sergio a hearing aid to practice with?

    Jah Reid: Any improvements with his feet and bend?
    Flacco: How is his deep ball accuracy? Is he reading his progressions better?
    #3 WR: Who is demonstrating the most consistent hands? ...and who is consistently able to get open?

    Thanks.

    Good stuff guys. We'll drill down on all of these areas during tomorrow's first full team practice.

    Keep them coming!

    How Kruger and Upshaw look at their respective positions. How the receivers behind Torrey and Boldin are doing.

    Is EVERYTHING not an option?

    I think my main areas to watch are...

    LG Battle: Not just who's doing the best....but are they even looking like a good option? We've seen camp battles won by default before, and LG is probably my top position of concern, especially with the uncertainty of LT.

    OLB Updates: Assuming the 3 guys competing for the starting spots are Kruger, Kindle, and Upshaw, how does each look?

    Jimmy vs Cary: Who's looking more awesome?

    6th WR spot: We can almost assume the 5 top WRs are Boldin, Smith, Doss, Jones, and Williams. Streeter vs Deonte Thompson, who's winning that battle? Is there an Option C we're missing, or is one of the locks playing their way off the roster?

    Gradkowski - How does he look? He's been mentioned in the mix for LG, but I think the main thinking is he's the C of the future. He's also a fun athlete to follow on twitter, and I give him big ups for his involvement with R-Word Pledge (http://www.r-word.org/Pledge.aspx). How's he look for this year, or even future prospects?

    Does Sergio Kindle look improved or is he having the same issues that he had last season?

    Another biggie - for me - is how much has Ed Dickson improved his ability to catch passes?

    He dropped far too many passes last year that hit him in the hands/chest.

    I second this one.

    ditto.

    Also I'm curious on the rookie free agents such as Nigel Carr and Deonte Thompson. Who amongst that batch may look like a 53 man spot taker.

    To me, the biggest thing in camp has to be, WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON WITH THE OFFENSIVE LINE?

    For it doesn't matter if we have all the skill guys if Flacco has no time to throw and Rice has nowhere to run.

    Our defense could once again be in the top 3, but the team will regress if the offensive line is terrible.

    Does Joe Flacco think he is an elite QB?
    Does Ray Lewis know he is old and has lost a step?
    Are the second string WR's mastering the Cam Cameron end around?
    Is there any chance T. Cody will get some reps at full back this year?
    Do you hear any rumblings that we might be able to bring Terrell Owens in to bolster the WR corps?

    Just kidding.

    Any reports on how the O-line is coming together are greatly appretiated. I would also like to hear updates on who is going to be the primary RB back up behind Rice as well as how the kicking battle is shaping up.
