The 7-on-7 scrimmage today will help sort out the depth chart

About how the 7-on-7 scrimmage with full-speed tackling today will help them decide on the depth chart, Mac said:
“We want to see who tackles, we want to see who catches the ball under pressure.” (HSB)

About the tough competition at each receiver position, Jon Medeiros said:
“We’re going to see who can make the tough catches over the middle, and this live drill is getting a feel for the real thing. There’s a lot of competition among the receivers. Everybody’s slashed down the line. … Making those tough catches will show how much you know the offense and how to perform under that kind of situation.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “While the offensive and defensive lines pound on each other in their 9-on-7 period dedicated to the running game, the contact is generally lighter for receivers and defensive backs.”

About the live tackling in their 7-on-7 period today, Medeiros said:
“During our 7-on-7 period and our team period, all the DBs and receivers know it’s pretty much just a thud period, just tag off and hold up. With this period (today), it’s a little more live and a little more hard-core.” (HSB)
