Fan Day Notes....Diggs


I'm sure there will be other posters on this subject, but since I didn't see anything yet, here goes. First off, Diggs is the real deal. I know it was just a scrimmage, but he scored three TD's. The first on a punt return, the second on a kickoff return, and the third on a nifty little catch in the redzone where he caught it over the middle, spun quickly, and dove into the endzone. Oh, and he's got plenty of swag, too. He was very visible on the sideline, talking it up with both the offensive and defensive players. There was some talk about how he may get along with the veterans, but I don't think it's going to be a problem at all. He seemed to get along well with everyone, talking on the sideline to Nick Ferrara and transfer Ricardo Young, as well Devonte Campbell. He did look small to me though. I know it's hard to get a good read from the stands, but he did not look 6' 1" to me. In any case, if you've ever seen his highlight reel video, I saw it firsthand today. I'm not sure he was touched on either returns for TD's. And he looks very, very comfortable fielding both kicks and punts. I think he makes an immediate impact on special teams. Offensively I saw glimpses of how they may use him, with Hills just overthrowing him in a deep route, which would have been a TD had the ball been on the money, but they also put him in motion coming behind the qb a few times, ala Tavon Austin at WVA. I thought Hills looked very good. He has decent size and looked to have good poise in the pocket. On the first drive he got flushed and ran with it at least 3 times, gaining good yardage all three times. He even scored on a nice 20 yd scamper. Although it wasn't full contact on the qb's, I could tell that Burns can definitely run it. He actually scored on about a 50 yard run on a nice zone read play. He's quick. Rowe didn't look bad either, but Hills definitely is the stronger of the two. Levern Jacobs had a few nice catches and runs as well...very quick. Tight ends are solid..very solid, and Furstenburg is legit. Didn't seem to have much going in the running game, which is a concern, although Reid, Pickett and Brown have obvious skills. Brown is a bruiser. Honestly, I didn't pay much attention to the D, as my focus was on the qb and the rest of the offense. We do look very young though - I think I saw where 68% of our team is either true FR, redshirt FR or sophomores....and you can tell. All in all I was pretty impressed, and the crowd this year was twice the crowd from last year, with even a few groups of tailgaters! The field looks very nice as well....a great day at the stadium!
