Standouts: Daniel Jones goes deep; Dex disruptive


Here were today's standouts at practice:

QB Daniel Jones

Jones was accurate in practice, especially on deep balls. He hit Darious Slayton on four different deep balls throughout the practice, including two during sessions where it was truly competitive with the starters facing the starters (without the defense running plays to simulate an opponent). Jones also hit David Sills and Saquon Barkley on deep routes, and threw a few more touchdown passes in the red zone. He was leading his receivers perfectly, and they did not have to adjust to the ball in the air. It was one of his more impressive outings of training camp.

WR Darius Slayton

Slayton was Jones' main target, and showed off the speed and playmaking that was apparent during his rookie season. He routinely ran by cornerbacks and created plenty of separation for Jones. The final long ball to Slayton took place at the end of practice, converting a 4th-and-10 on a "move the ball" no-huddle portion of practice. He also caught a touchdown pass from Jones early in practice. During 1-on-1 tackling drills, Slayton also put a slick move to evade a safety.

DL Dexter Lawrence

Lawrence has been adept at getting his hands up at the line of scrimmage and knocking down passes throughout camp. He didn't do that today because he was getting into the backfield more consistently to put pressure on the quarterback. Twice during 1-on-1 with the offensive line, he used his power to drive the blocker into the backfield. He did a Reggie White impression on one rep, using the "hump" move to get under the pads of the offensive lineman and nearly sending him airborne.
