Canedo, Noah Gray, Blake Beller discussed on Arrowhead Pride
Well i do think he's the other you said at the other star training camp if we didn't know anything about him going in we might be a little more intrigued about him. I think his name just kill fatigue to it. Now and just the fact. That noah gray and blake beller clearly above and that is the thing though got remember last year they kept ricky seals jones around a fourth tight end for really no reason. He didn't really make any sort of impact at all. In fact the actually the only real impact we made was a drop. I wanna say in a crucial spot. If i remember correctly. I think it was in the playoffs against the browns. He dropped ez pass but so you know if they do keep four tight ends. He's the logical choice for the fourth guy. Because nick kaiser have been injured and not playing. And i think you don't need. I think blake beller nick. Kaiser one of them was making the team. I don't think the other number made sense for both of them to make the team. So there's an opportunity in that sense and he has been playing pretty well he actually you know he's getting on their rotate. And a lotta tight ends in with the first when kelsey one out so he did get some run as a tight end getting some passes from a home so if they do wanna ricky seals jones type he kind of fits the same kind of profile. So we'll see maybe maybe that is the plan. Maybe you know maybe jodi fortson a mursal finally get their day in. The sun would be a little bit surprise. I still feel like he is just right on. That cusp of of being somebody that you can rely on within the within the offense is sort of between her between wide receiver and tight end. We always get excited about those giant wide receivers or the pass receiving tight ends at and you don't see a lot of 'em pan out you know he's been around for a couple of years you know maybe he's finding astrid now or maybe he's just a perennial practice squad player. I guess we won't really know until cut down calm. But i'd be really curious to see if they carry forward tight ends at whose expense. What position are they going. Lean on to carry an extra tight end. Yeah so that is one thing you know. That'd be ten linemen that i- factored into to get to my fifty three man roster projection. They have nine in the past. And you know how long is on the pup. It doesn't count against the roster. You know maybe they count him as the tenth linemen and only keep nine and maybe allegany You know Is cut or maybe. That's when we t know wave that trade clause and go somewhere where he can maybe get a better playing up and so you know that that's where they could cut someone to make room for the four tight end six receivers to you know. Maybe they think they don't need six cheever's maybe they think the only need five and so callaway gets cut or You know i. I really the only way for them to get to five. I can't imagine it cut or get tried. To put cornel powell on the practice squad he wouldn't survive on the practice squad. Get taken up. So yeah it's interesting you know i. I would definitely be that it wouldn't happen. That will definitely see three tight ends. Jody fortson will just be another training. Camp name that will remember forever and nothing will ever happen from it but You know it is interesting. Because he has had he has looked good at tight end. He has made places dining live a ton of bodies at offensive line. My current projections still has nine offensive. Lineman going in with six wide receivers three tight end four running backs on offense. I think they always going to carry that extra running back just because it's position where you need a lot of bodies and you go through a lot of of injuries and wear and tear dharma thompson may have some competition for that. Fourth spot hasn't been on the field Yet because of the kobe situation but that's a position to watch. Can they carry a fourth tight end and fullback and you know a full complement of wide receivers. I'm not sure it will be tough to get down to two numbers on the offensive line. And that's why it's worth worth really watching. Where lewis kneeing plays if he is the swing tackle or if he if he wins at right tackle spot. You want your backups verse. Allow line. So i think they could carry nine offense lineman pretty logically as long as all of their backups. Play multiple positions. And i think that's true already for for awesome blythe if he makes the roster for might remers if he's not the starter he certainly can play multiple positions So that really does make me believe that. If trey smith wins the right guard spot than lt might be the odd man out may only keep nine on the offensive line but a lot to be determined when it comes to roster spots and a lot of it were just frankly not gonna know much about it at least until we see preseason games and maybe not even then another name that again as popped up today Just now that. I'm curious to see what you thought. In person of joshua canedo. He just had another good wrap. It sounds like where he would have had a sack. If it was alive period house canedo coming along. Does he looked like somebody who they can get in the mix early so i think the fact that you really didn't see canedo in the practice i was that like doing much with the first team or rotating and much with the first team thing. It just shows you how many bodies have right now. And how many guys you know with alcohol dana. In damone harris has actually been practicing. You know up in that rotation kinda up with those guys to even rotating in with the second team. But i will say monday towards the end of practice. All sudden i started see canedo pop a little bit The third team. He's going as wyatt miller at right tackle. Who you know just a throwaway guy and canedo got a couple of pressures. He around the edge force quarterback scramble out and then he actually next play countered back in with a nice move to collapse the pocket on the quarterback and would have been probably a sack and then actually i noticed right after that first thing came back on the field. They got canedo in there. Didn't create pressure or anything but man. He's exploded off the ball like it was buried noticeable. How quickly got off the ball. How you know how much he he did like. Penetrate the pocket a little bit. Just didn't get past. It would have been orlando brown at left tackle. But man. I i do think you can see why he was a five star recruit and he if he can harness that and and really just be a pasha specialist. I mean the does. The team really need him to be that great run defense. I mean i know it'd be nice. Obviously get a guy that can be a start run-defender obviously but man if he just you know make tackles work on the outside or just be a pass rush presence and be fresh legs at the end of game when the offensive line's tired and all sudden. This canedo guys only had five snaps. All game on fresh legs comes in and works him. I mean he could really be an x factor for the defense. I think But i don't wanna get hyped up too much. I wanna get my hopes up too much. So he looks the part physically right like. He's a good athlete. he's big Looks like an imposing figure. Yeah no. he's he's huge now he is. He is like tunnel passing. Your comps are lazy because of how they play but the size wise like he is kind of. He's kind of that. Standout tall figure like tana was but they just don't really play the same so he's probably competing with guys like tim ward for for those sort of backup or situational snaps. Alex okafor's seems to be working as way right back in to the rotation as well so they do have a lot of bodies defensive and is the concern at that position. Maybe a little less than than it was at one point. Oh absolutely i think so. Because honestly now i don't have ten more making the active roster which i did for a while to see this offseason but i'd say five defensive ends and if you include chris jones at six and so you know and then there's forty tackle so that's ten total defense line. I think that's what kind of want. And so i and i haven't really seen more be used at all in in in rotated in like even though canedo was very limited. He still was put in with the first team. Defense and played i. I didn't really see tim war. Get those kind of reps. Obviously you know. That's the two days. I've been there. But like i said to him on the i just saw reporter tim. Warren had a head. What would have been a sack in the third team on the thirteenth defense against anthony gordon at at quarterback so as he's rotating deep in the rotation but he's certainly been apple a name that i was surprised to hear positive things about which maybe i shouldn't be bud and colin sanders has been standing out a little bit with his quickness in camp. And that's that's what he's known for him and he's a. He's a remarkable athlete for his size. But.
