Quarterbacks are being encouraged to extend plays with their legs, get the ball out quicker and really keep the defense on its toes. Up front, it’s hard not to recognize the tall task offensive line coach Brad Davis has in finding the right mix of talent to ensure better run and pass blocking than the previous two years.
As for the receiver room, likely the deepest on the roster when fully healthy, the expectations haven’t changed. This offense wants to get the ball in their hands and use their athleticism to make plays. With Kayshon Boutte and Malik Nabers dealing with injuries, it’s opened up more opportunity to see just how deep this group really is.
Jack Bech is now working with the receiver group full time after spending most of his freshman year as a hybrid tight end. The terminology may be a bit different but he’s noticing the energy and execution have been different in these first few practices
“It’s going to be more versatile and it’s gonna open up everything,” Bech said. “It’s only the second day but the way we run our offense, it gives the QB the sense of doing what he needs to do to get it to the open player. A lot of our offense is going to be built around getting the ball to somebody in the open field and making our athletes make plays in open field.”
