How did Davis influence Kelce before he originally shared a practice area at NBC Sports Philadelphia?
Jason Kels and Jordan Davis finally shared a practice area on Saturday.
Earlier, Davis had impressed the Eagles legend.
The giant rookie had already impressed the Eagles’ veteran center during a walkthrough, the same day that Davis received his first team representatives of the summer, before Kelsea returned as a full participant in practice on Saturday.
“I think only in walkthroughs, the stuff I love, you can tell when a person is in a walkthrough by looking at their eyes, whether it’s closed or not, whether they’re focusing, if they need to. getting something,” Kelsey said. “Some people go there for a walkthrough and they’re going through the motions and that’s a waste of time. What’s going on here? Even when it’s a heads-up shed in the walkthrough, he Sinking his hips properly, he is using his hands properly.
“His eyes are wide. Whenever you see someone who has worms in their eyes, he’s blown away, isn’t he? He’s taking everything in. That lets me know he’s ready to grow And he’s trying to hone his craft. These are the people, when you combine it with the physical prowess he has, it’s great to see. But apparently we’re only here for two days So we’ll see how it develops.”
The next development for Davis was to get some first-team reps on Saturday. For what it was worth, he seemed to handle them well. Davis was disruptive on the third day of training camp and showed some of his athleticism.
In the first two days of practice, second-year defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu was getting snaps in front of Davis in a nose tackle position. It didn’t take long for the coaching staff to put out a first-round pick at that location.
Davis’ personality is as big as his frame and we saw that when he performed during the first week of camp during the Rookie Talent Show.
But other than that, Davis has actually been quieter than usual since camp started.
“He’s been a little quieter since we’re in camp,” Javan Hargrave said. “I think he’s really putting his head down and really learning from everybody.”
The good news is that Davis got into his first training camp in shape and was looking great getting some first-team reps on Saturday. He’s entering a position with the Eagles where he doesn’t need to be a star. The Eagles still have Hargrave, Fletcher Cox and Milton Williams in that defensive tackle rotation.
So what are the Eagles’ hopes for Davis this summer?
“There’s no hope from me right now,” said defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon. “I want to watch him play and practice and see what he can do. It’s like everyone, you know, how he fits in with the other people he’s out there with and what he does well. We have to put him in those conditions so that he can be successful.”
