McKelvin’s focus

Posted by Chris Brown on May 25, 2010 – 4:13 pm

Leodis McKelvin has made it a point to be more focused on the field than perhaps he’s ever been. There is a clearly different on field demeanor coming from him. One of intensity and determination that I once saw in another player entering his third year as a pro en route to a breakout season.

It was training camp 1998 and there was a third-year receiver that had come under much scrutiny for his lack of production his first two seasons. But in training camp that year he was unstoppable. He dominated almost every practice offensively that summer. That receiver was Eric Moulds.

Moulds would go on to have 67 catches for a Bills single-season record 1,368 yards, which also led the AFC that year and nine touchdowns. He had a 20.4 yards per catch average, which was good for 2nd in the NFL and made his first Pro Bowl.

McKelvin isn’t dominating practices defensively just yet, but he’s been around the ball a lot through the five rookie minicamp practices and again on day one of OTAs. Come training camp there could be a whole lot more excitement about the season the former first-round pick might have in 2010.
