2 - NOTES: Statistically speaking, it was an offensive camp. The QBs were sharp again on Wednesday with unofficial numbers in the skeleton period of: Zach Collaros 14/16 1 INT, Brandon Bridge 13/16, Marquise Williams 8/12 and David Watford 7/8.
3 - PLAYER OF THE DAY: Receiver Jeremy Tabuyo was the Player of the Day on Tuesday having collected the most receptions but on Wednesday, the Player of the Day honour fell to defensive back Nick Marshall. The former Auburn quarterback intercepted Brandon Bridge in the 1-on-1 period and Zach Collaros in skelly.
5 - MOVING FORWARD: Chris Jones noted after the workout that about half of the players from the Florida minicamp will receive invitations to the main training camp in Saskatoon beginning May 20. So, these 32 players will be waiting by their phones for a call from the Roughriders or their agent. I'd be shocked if Tabuyo and Williams-Lambert aren't invited.
6 - MORE ON TABUYO: The 5'11", 192 lb Honolulu product told me after the practice that he "kind of felt great out there" and that current Rider Chad Owens gave him some tips on how to stand out in this camp. Tabuyo also said he participated in the L.A. Rams minicamp so has a history of turning heads.
8 - COLLAROS: Chris Jones made it clear that the quarterback competition is wide open and Wednesday's happenings are a nod to that. However Collaros showed up as advertised: calm, smooth, controlled, accurate and can make ALL the throws. He rolled out smoothly without a hitch on Day 2 and it's clear his former knee problems are in the past. It's doubtful the media will bring that up again, but it's also clear there are several in the Rider Nation who are still taking a "wait and see" approach with the Cincinnati product.
10 - NEXT UP: By 11:30 am on Wednesday, the Riders were packed up and gone from IMG Academy. Not a scrap of tape was left on the floor and all that was left was a chewed up field and a few dreams. Next up for the club is next Thursday's CFL Draft (May 3) which will commence at 6:00 pm ST that evening. It's disappointing there isn't more hysteria leading up to the Draft, but that's nothing new. Canadians just don't follow university sports like they do here in the USA. It's something Luc Mullinder and I will discuss on today's SportsCage.
