NFL Pre-season rookies

Some tidbits from NFL news on PSU rookies

Sean Lee - 8 Tackles, 3 Solo, 1 TFL Apparantly he knows how to play this game.

From Blogging the Boys

--  Sean Lee entered the game early after Keith Brooking hurt a shoulder.  Lee showed the ballyhooed instincts.  He made or assisted on the tackle on four of his first five plays.   When the Chargers were trying to come back late in the 4th quarter, Lee blew up the 3rd down play by flying in off the right end to trip the running back for no gain.  On 4th-and-1, Lee stuffed the fullback in the hole and stopped the runner cold.  

Josh Hull - 8 Tackles, 7 Solo - Best of a poor tackling Rams defense.  Looking good as back up to Laura Naitis.

Navorro Bowman -3 Tackles, 3 Solo First preseason action, battling shoulder injury

Mike likes Bowman:

"He is a physical guy, much more physical than I thought he was," Singletary said. "I didn't know if he would be able to play inside. He was a thick looking guy when I saw him at the combine, but I wasn't sure. The film had me going back and forth because he was never really inside, he was never really outside. He was more outside than he was inside. When he got here, we realized he was thick enough, he was quick enough - really a unique guy because he has a lot of flexibility which is sort of ironic because I heard prior to getting him that he was kind of a stiff guy, but he moves really well."

Same old, same old for JO according to

-I really like the depth that Miami's defensive line has..... Jared Odrick took on double teams a lot - which tells us what other teams think of Odrick, who showed he's up to the challenge.

Landolt getting some love from The Giant Insider

... G/T Dennis Landolt, an undrafted free agent from Penn State whom the Giants had to offer a higher signing bonus back in the spring to land, has mostly worked at both guard spots, where he has shown fine athleticism and has made some bone-crushing hits to blow defenders off the line. At 6-4, 306, Landolt has looked very stout at the point of attack.
