Week One OTA Nuggets

The news I've read out of OTAs this week has been encouraging.  Here are a few nuggets regarding the 89 guys at OTAs this week, with links and credits to the sources.  Bob Gretz confirmed Brackenridge's jaw surgery, which had been an unconfirmed radio report to this point, as far as I saw.

Q: What other draft picks have done well so far?

EDWARDS: ”[Brandon] Carr’s done pretty well. He made some plays yesterday. [Brandon] Flowers has done good. [Will] Franklin has made some plays the last couple of days. I think all of them have shown something. [Jamaal] Charles has shown that he’s a lot faster than he was on tape– and he’s fast on tape.”

Offensively

Croyle was sharp while Thigpen struggled.  Jeff Webb looked better than Darling.  "To me, the best guard on the field Thursday" was Chris McDuffie.

Defensively

Glen Dorsey: unstoppable. He ate up Brian Waters.  DE Brian Johnston "has the goods this year to start for the Chiefs."  For the week, DT Derek Lokey appeared to be "one of the team’s four best interior defensive linemen."
