Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette said repeatedly during the offseason that he wanted to slim down for his second NFL season. Mission accomplished.
Fournette told Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune that he is currently at 223 pounds [url=http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-calvin-johnson-jersey]Calvin Johnson Jersey[/url] , his lightest since he was a star at St. Augustine High School in New Orleans in 2013.
Although Fournette weighed in at 240 pounds at last year’s Scouting Combine, getting down to 223 isn’t quite as big a weight loss as it sounds: Fournette said he had been drinking a lot of water at the Combine and that a lot of that 240 was water weight. At LSU’s Pro Day, Fournette was 228 pounds, and that was his listed weight as a rookie last year as well.
Still, Fournette believes he’ll be faster, quicker and better as a 223-pounder.
As he squares off against first-round draft pick Kolton Miller almost daily in training camp, Oakland Raiders rookie defensive end Arden Key rarely uses the same move twice.
On one play, Key takes a jab-step inside then spins around to Miller's outside shoulder and speeds past the big left tackle. A few moments later, Key bull-rushes his way between Miller and another offensive lineman with little resistance.
It's not an indictment of Miller so much as it is a credit to Key [url=http://www.bearscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-allen-robinson-jersey]Allen Robinson Jersey[/url] , the Raiders' third-round draft pick who has been one of the early stars in training camp.
"We love Key," Oakland coach Jon Gruden said Monday. "We've liked Key ever since the draft process. We felt lucky to get him where we got him. There's some things this kid can do that are very special. Hopefully, we get full strength someday at the defensive end position and we can show our true colors."
Gruden was referring to defensive end Khalil Mack, who is entering the final year of his contract and is holding out for a new deal.
Mack, the 2016 defensive player of the year, has been the Raiders' best pass-rusher for the past four seasons. In hopes of giving him some help up front, the team used three of it first six draft picks to acquire Key along with defensive tackles P.J. Hall (second round) and Maurice Hurst (fifth round).
Oakland also moved Bruce Irvin from outside linebacker to right defensive end, the same position as Key. The two men formed a close bond, with Irvin serving as a mentor to Key.
Irvin compares Key to Aldon Smith [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-nathan-peterman-jersey]Nathan Peterman Jersey[/url] , the talented but troubled former Raiders linebacker who had 33 陆 sacks in his first two NFL seasons before off-field issues forced him out of the league.
Like Smith, Key wears jersey No. 99.
"He's a really natural rusher," Irvin said. "He reminds me a lot of the old 99 that was here. If he keeps his head on straight, which he will, he's going to be a hell of a player and a hell of a player for the Raiders. Can't wait to see what he's going to do this year."
Irvin is among a number of Oakland players and coaches who have repeatedly praised Key during camp.
The 22-year-old has tried to keep it all in perspective. Key buries his head in the playbook and has been pouring over film of other pass-rushers, trying to find new tricks to add to his arsenal of pass-rush moves.
"I look at a lot of pass-rushers to try to steal some of their moves and try them in one-on-one," Key said. "If it works it works and if I like it, it's going to stick with me."
Getting around an offensive tackle, Key said [url=http://www.ramscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-johnny-hekker-jersey]Johnny Hekker Jersey[/url] , is much like a chess match.
"I always work on one move first and see if he beats it," Key said. "If he beats that then I'm going to counter with something else. If he beats my counter move then I've got to counter with another counter."
The Raiders have also had Key lining up in the three-technique over a guard, giving the defense more speed for the interior rush.
"He's a stud, I'll put it that way," linebacker Tahir Whitehead said. "He's big, he's strong, he's athletic. He can go inside, he can go outside. I'm excited to see him go out there in the first game and let it rip."
As for his ongoing battles against Miller, Key said the competition has been heating up between the two rookies.
"Kolton gets better every day [url=http://www.cowboyscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-daryl-johnston-jersey]Daryl Johnston Jersey[/url] ," Key said. "From the first day we went against each to now, it's just gotten so much better. Now I have to dig in my tool box to try to pick different moves to use on him."
Notes: The Raiders will host two joint practices with the Detroit Lions beginning Tuesday. . RB DeAndre Washington has left the team for personal reasons but is expected back soon. . The team waived defensive back Shaquille Richardson and signed cornerback Raysean Pringle. . Gavin Newsome, a candidate for California governor, attended practice and chatted with owner Mark Davis.
