In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles’ first scrimmage of the spring.
Although JJ Cosentino took first team reps during the portion of practice open to the media most of the week, all signs point to Deondre Francois being atop the quarterback depth chart. Francois has won the team over with his maturity and work ethic.
The progress reports for Rick Leonard, Chris Casher and Ryan Green have been positive after their position changes this spring. Leonard will battle for the starting right tackle spot. Green’s speed and receiving ability has him in position to get quality reps. Chris Casher is more natural catching the ball than we expected. If he learns the playbook and nuances of the tight end position, his contribution won’t be limited to short-yardage blocking situations.
Defensively, most of the talk this week centered around the Derwin James at defensive end packages. At cornerback, Tarvarus McFadden is currently the starter opposite Marquez White. With White being sidelined with a broken bone in his hand, Marcus Lewis has been taking those starting reps.
