On slot receiver Kelvin Grady's move from basketball: "Kelvin's been interesting. When he came back and wanted to play football, naturally I went back and watched his film. He was a pretty good player. It's been a little surprise … he's got some great ball skills, he's a good player and he's done really, really well picking up the offense. You can tell he's a guy that's been a guy in college athletics. He's been a pleasant surprise.
"I'm excited about him. I went in with no pre-thoughts about it. I wanted to evaluate for what it is. It's been a pleasant surprise, but not too surprising."
On fifth-year senior running back Kevin Grady: "Kevin's going to have a role. He's done well, a fifth-year guy, good for the younger guys … he's been a good leader for us. We've got a couple of weeks to go here, but I like Kevin's progress."
On whether the young kids are growing up quickly: "We started out pretty aggressive seeing how much they can pick up. With kids coming in the summer now, it helps them. They pick up so much from the guys in the voluntary workouts that it helps them.
"We come and start camp and throw a lot at them early to see how much they pick up, then we slow down as we go. Right now we've pretty much got the offense in so we can keep repping those plays, repping those plays. Every day you see them getting more and more confident in what we're doing."
On whether he's happy with the progress of the young players: "I am. Naturally now you want to get them zeroed in on the game plan, and right now they are getting a lot thrown at them. Maybe they can just start concentrating on the little things. Guys are running around trying to figure out protections, this, that, but when you zero in, you'll see the progression a little faster."
