McKenzie is 5'8", 173.  Rayray is 5'9", 190.  They are guys who would like like, well, ordinary guys walking down the street.

So you’re saying I have a chance? Put me in coach! I’m often mistaken for an ordinary guy when I’m walking down the street.

The same thing that happened when he looked like the better QB last season vs. the Jets. This is Allen's team.

They are looking at the ceiling, not the floor. It will play out.

Err...pads just went on yesterday

 

Yes, it is early. But at the moment McKenzie and McCloud are ahead of the big guys in the receiver rotation and out there ahead of them on special teams as well. I don't think I am crazy in thinking that Sills and Duke are behind the 8 ball. 

 

And while it is early I say again that the pattern in the two McDermott camps has been that at receiver it was the guys that made noise early in camp that stuck.... not necessarily the guys who played the best in pre season.

What happens if Barkley looks like the better QB thru the preseason?  He is way more accurate.

 

Then this board is going to lose its mind. 

 

Reality is Barkley May well stand a chance of being competent, Allen represents a swing for the fences. He’s a shot at elite, great, exceptional.

Am I alone in thinking that McKenzie, and McCloud are a little small for the role of gunners?

No, not at all alone.  I have that concern myself.  On the one hand, Steve Tasker was 5'9" and played at 185, so it's possible

On the other hand, Steve Tasker was kind of unique, and some of the players used as returners are larger now.

Just sayin', it's one ST scenario reported by Astro, and doesn't necessarily represent all that's going on.

 

It's also possible that after some actual tackling, the player ST assignments may change.

You're still not crazy in thinking that Duke Williams and Sills are not lining up as sure shots to make the team.

I don't know if they are playing as the primary gunner. Siran Neal had first shot there.

These reports have been great!  I almost feel like I went to the practice after having read it.  I've now read 1-4 and I'm hooked!

 

I've seen Victor Bolden getting mentioned a fair amount for making nice catches.  This WR battle is shaping up to be pretty juicy.  Preseason can't come fast enough!

They are more than no sure shots. They are long shots. And I am not the only one saying it - it is the consensus on social media from guys (both media reps and fans) who have been out at camp.

He gets to throw passes to you in your back yard while Josh is playing in front of a sold out crowd at the stadium.

Isn't there a closed-to-the-public, media-only camp Tuesday?  But I guess Rastro doesn't qualify.
