Yeah him and Hightower seem to be making plays. I so wish we could watch these two in some pre season games.

Fran Duffy's quick hits

1. The highlight from the first team period for the offense came on the second pass attempt, a deep crossing route by Zach Ertz. Carson Wentz hit him in stride over the shoulder with Avonte Maddox in the area downfield in zone coverage. Great touch throw by Wentz, nice concentration by Ertz with Maddox flashing by. That catch by Ertz kind of foreshadowed the day for the offense, which featured a lot of big plays from the tight ends. Dallas Goedert was extremely involved in the short and intermediate areas.

2. That first team session was also highlighted by a diving interception by rookie safety K'Von Wallace, who was paying deep down the field. The pass was thrown by Jalen Hurts, intended for fellow rookie John Hightower, who appeared to stumble coming out of the route, going to the ground, and allowing the throw to go unimpeded into Wallace's grasp. The defensive sideline was expectedly hyped up for the rookie. As for Hurts and Hightower, they hooked up on the next play for a nice gain on an out route.

3. I was excited to watch my first 1-on-1 session of the summer, and my attention was on the offensive line against the defensive line. Here were my takeaways:

• The first rep pitted Lane Johnson against Brandon Graham, who tried to win with a bull rush inside, but Lane ended it quickly, dropping his anchor and keeping the "quarterback," Connor Barwin, clean. Graham came back later with a slick inside move against Jordan Mailata to get home for a "sack."

• Fletcher Cox got the energy back to the defensive side on the next rep, beating Nate Herbig with a nice combination of a rip move into a long arm move, pushing the second-year lineman backwards into the quarterback's lap. Cox would later overwhelm rookie Jack Driscoll with a bull rush as well.

• Isaac Seumalo put the clamps on Anthony Rush's bull rush attempt on the next rep, stopping the second-year defender cold.

• Hassan Ridgeway had a nice session overall, beating Matt Pryor on the left side on his first rep with a quick inside move. Ridgeway would later beat Sua Opeta with an outside rush before beating Herbig later in the drill from the opposite side. Ridgeway was one of the standouts for the defensive line with multiple wins in the session.

• The offensive line was at its loudest in this period when Andre Dillard stood up Josh Sweat's bull rush attempt. Dillard let some bull rushes get the best of him last summer, and Sweat wanted to test the former first-round pick's strength on their first battle. Dillard came up with the W, standing firm on contact. On Sweat's next rep, he won with an impressive long arm move, getting the best of rookie Prince Tega Wanogho.

• Second-year defensive end Shareef Miller had a couple of wins in this drill, beating Mailata with an inside move early, and bull rushing Casey Tucker late. Miller also earned praise from teammates during a team drill with a stop in the run game. One of the notes left on the cutting room floor Monday was an assistant coach praising Miller from the sideline in a team period for his effort on a run stuff against the first-team offense. Miller is trying to stack days together as he competes for one of the backup defensive end spots.

4. The team got together for some red zone work. Here are some quick notes from that period:

• On the first play, we saw the Wentz-Reagor connection again that was so prominent on Monday. Wentz avoided pressure off the edge by stepping up into the pocket and rifling a pass between defenders to Reagor in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Reagor dove with both feet in to secure the score. It was a really nice play by both guys, especially given the early pressure off the edge.

• The pressure got home against Wentz a few plays later, as Hassan Ridgeway got home on third down for what likely would have been a sack, forcing a throwaway in the red zone. Ridgeway built off his quality reps from the 1-on-1 portion of practice and brought that to the team sessions.

• Jalen Hurts wrapped up the red zone session with some nice plays with his legs, running in for a couple of scores and making a nice throw for a touchdown to young veteran tight end Josh Perkins. Perkins wasn't the only tight end to reach the end zone in this period, as Caleb Wilson won on a jump ball from Nate Sudfeld in the left corner of the end zone for a touchdown to put a ribbon on the session.

5. The focus shifted to the passing game in a 7-on-7 drill coming out of the end zone. Carson Wentz threw darts in this drill, connecting with Dallas Goedert several times as well as Greg Ward and Boston Scott. He threw one incompletion in the direction of receiver Quez Watkins on a deep post, as he slighly overthrew the speedy rookie.

6. Practice ended on a quick team period in the middle of the field. Some quick highlights:

• Cre'Von LeBlanc got a diving pass breakup on a Carson Wentz pass in the middle of the field, stepping in front of a pass intended for Greg Ward. LeBlanc is competing for a job in the secondary, and the versatile playmaker has lined up both inside and outside throughout his career here in Philadelphia.

• The secondary got excited again after a pick-six from Jalen Mills, who was lurking in the middle of the field and intercepted a pass intended for Zach Ertz. Mills raced down the left sideline, sprinting into the end zone where he playfully told the media contingent, "That's what I do!" before flicking the ball over his shoulder. It was a great play by Mills, who looks comfortable at the safety position through two days of practice.

• Wentz would have the last laugh though, as he hurled a beautiful fade route to rookie John Hightower just shy of the goal line for a 40-plus yard completion to end practice. The ball was placed perfectly, and Hightower reeled it in for a big completion to end the day.

I think Ridgeway would have made an impact if he didn't get hurt last year. Good to see he's impressing this offseason like last offseason.

Losing him and Jackson last season was a significant blow, especially with a hampered Timmy Jernigan and Cox who wasn't quite right with the foot either.

If we have a healthy Cox, Hargrave (please come back before week 1), Jackson, and Ridgeway that definitely has to be the best DT rotation in the league.

He played well the first half of the year last year.

I thought he only played like 100 something snaps, but I checked and he played like 250 which wasn't much less than Jernigan.

I see chargers fans think Herbert is already better than Wentz. If only those guys knew chargers fans dont exist.

Has Jordan Mailata done anything positive so far? Everything I've read has been negative. I know he was drafted as a major project but it might be time to move on.

I heard he didn't have a good day yesterday from the few tidbits I saw, but Monday was some positive I believe. 

Another thing is apparently Mailata looks more fluid/comfortable at LT than RT.

He really needs game reps though. No preseason hurts him just as much as first year players.

Wait, Connor Barwin works for us now? Since when?

 

Pretty cool though. Seems like a lot of former Eagles, even guys who played on other teams or ended their careers elsewhere, tend to stay bleeding green. Chris Long is my #1 dude. Guy BLEEDS green.
