Bills head coach Chan Gailey had a lot to observe and evaluate through the course of his team’s rookie minicamp. Over those five practices, there’s one all encompassing conclusion he came to.
“There’s a little bit more speed on the field than I thought,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “I think we’re a little faster and quicker than I thought as a whole. I expected the effort and I expected the enthusiasm. You get that from young players. I was pleasantly surprised with the speed on the field.”
Obviously top pick C.J. Spiller is a part of that, but there were several quick receivers among the young group that may not have those top flight 40 times, but play faster. The group of young defensive backs assembled are also quick. And there are some linebackers that can really run like Arthur Moats.
To see that speed now knowing these players are doing a lot of thinking instead of reacting, says a lot about where that level of speed will be when the offensive and defensive schemes become second nature to the players.
