2021 OTAS also includes Rookie and Mandatory minicamps


Recommended Posts

Luckily we have about 20 RBs so we should be fine....But this is why I didn't mind taking two backs in the draft. We have some injury prone backs and none of them could stay healthy.

There weren’t a lot of throws on which to judge him, but Lance on Tuesday mostly looked like someone learning the offense, though certainly not like a hapless rookie. As was the case during the rookie minicamp earlier this month, he checked down to a short, outlet receiver a lot and missed some throws high.

Lance also had a good-looking completion to receiver Brandon Aiyuk while rolling out to his right. Those types of plays — bootlegs and play-action scenarios — were expected to be Lance’s strength considering the offense he ran at North Dakota State, and so far that has been the case.

“He looks a little bit better than a rookie quarterback,” tight end George Kittle said when asked about Lance. “He’s out there, he’s slinging it.”

Lance didn’t have any jaw-dropping throws Tuesday, but he apparently made an impressive one during the first OTA practice on Monday, which was not open to reporters.

“He made an awesome throw on a play action,” Kittle said. “He found my rookie Josh Pederson on a far corner — that’s what we call it — on a rollout, which is like the last guy you’d throw it to on the play. And the fact he found him on the first-ever rollout was pretty cool.”

An under-the-radar player who stood out Tuesday was Jonas Griffith, who was easy to overlook last year considering he was an undrafted rookie from Indiana State who entered the NFL during the pandemic-altered spring.

After Warner & Greenlaw, the LB room is wide open. Hopefully one of the guys makes a mark as at least a solid backup.
