Post Practice Takeaways 4/17: Defense
First of all, I have to preface that the defense is still missing three of the best players in Terrel Bernard, TJ Franklin, and Gabe Hall. Tyrone Brown was also missing and looks great without pads. Defensive LineSiaki Ika is a difference maker. One I have never seen in a Baylor uniform at this size. We can talk Billings, Tayler, Dotson, etc and none were 360+ moving like this with no stop and able to change direction like him. Just truly fun to watchChidi Ogbonnaya is much bigger and healthy. He's going to be able to give valuable minutes beside or behind Apu.Rob Saulin looks like he's not battling Covid and has put on great weight. The 5th year Senior gets off the ball well and at DE in this 3-4, he'll occupy blockers and get some pressure upfield as he did today.Jackson Shupp is a walk-on getting time with two other DL out and he holds his own and made plays. You love to see a guy like this with a motor that doesn't stop and anyone in front of him can't take a break.Brayden Utley was a walk-on until last year and he started out with the 1st and rotated with the 2s as well. At 6-1 270, he's a guy that is going to muddy up the outside, which allows LBs to run free.Garmon Randolph is so full of potential and he flashes it more now than he did in 2020. At 265, he still looks lean and like he could be 290 and be a taller James Franis/Julius Denton athlete. As a sophomore, his NFL potential will be something to watch. Joshua Landry ran at NT and LDE during the practice and I didn't really notice him during the practice, besides running with 1s and 2s.I don't remember seeing Ryan Miller Cole Maxwell has grown and he made one play that made me smile by flushing Zeno out of the pocket and into the arms of a JACK. Overall the defensive line is loaded. LOADED and there is no true dropoff and they can challenge the 2019 line in dominance, which brings us to the next position...LinebackersAgain, missing TB and Tyrone Brown, but deep with talent and speedJACKAshton Logan is noticeably bigger and knows his position. He's getting pushed by Victor Obi who, like Randolph, doesn't look his weight, but he's active and long. He swoops like a condor outside with his wingspanBryson Jackson looks like he's shot out of a cannon on pass rushing and flat ran past Galvin on one play. He had other flashes where it was great to see the Senior putting his foot down and going upfield in pursuit of the ball carrier or QBAnthony Anyanwu looks like an NFL LB in size and his first step is still explosive. He's a little behind Logan, Obi, and Jackson, but he's not needed this second or season, but he'll be readyWill Garner also looks good physically, but I don't remember him outside of warmupsILBDillon Doyle is more decisive and in so, his speed to the ball has improved. He seems to be everywhere and teaming him with Bernard and Pitre is going to be fun to watchSpeaking of Abram Smith, he overwhelms with speed and physicality, but I turned to Gary and Smoaky during practice and said, "I'm not so sure he shouldn't be at RB, but he definitely should be going both ways at this point to get him on the field."Matt Jones is also more decisive and stronger. He's gotten after the ball carrier with bad intentions at each of the last practices I've attended. Will Williams missed a read on an Abram Smith TD run, but he's going to be someone to watch with his speed on the fieldI don't remember seeing Hakeem Vance Brooks Miller laid the wood on Abram Smith and he got up a little woosy, but continued on. Abram got another 2-3 yards after contact, but it was violent.Tyrone Brown from WOS was out there with the 2s and didn't look lost and made a play or twoSTAR or whatever it is called now and other SafetiesJalen Pitre is Pitre. Enough saidJT Woods got a solid lick in run support and on RJ Sneed as he broke free on the sideline. He looks bigger and more confident in the systemChristian Morgan is also bigger and not blowing assignments as he did against a couple of teams in 2020. Solid and physicalLorando Johnson, Jr. was a CB and is now a safety and his athleticism there is noticeable. His interception on Shapen against Fleeks in the end zone was beautiful. He also supported well on running plays.I was looking for Devin Neal and Mike Harris, but don't remember seeing either, which is good and bad, I guessDevin Lemear and Jairon McVea are two more safeties I didn't notice. Again, they didn't screw up or make a play I rememberCornersNobody with throw on Raleigh Texada, just weird, but he's pressing, redirecting WRs in routes, and looks greatKalon Barnes does have the QBs testing him and he looks more natural in his backpedal and mirroringLoving the move of Alfahiym Walcott to CB. He's physical and can run. Looked good.AJ McCarty is always around the ball. He's a year away, IMO.I don't remember seeing Chateau Reed or Brandon White or Byron Hanspard Zeke Brown was in with the 3s and he got his first INT and start against OSU last yearMark Milton has improved his technique and footwork. He's going to be a serviceable #2, but Walcott is going to push himI can't say more about how impressed I am with this unit. Being on the field level with them is like being next to some NFL sized teams. Several sources told us they had really seen improvement under the new weight staff, but damn, it is noticeable from the distance we are asked to be at from them.

Team Notes: Bye Week & More
Outside of Clay Johnston, Gavin Holmes, Jaylen Ellis, and Cole Maxwell being out for the season with knee injuries, the Bears are relatively healthy. The issue of relatively healthy means plenty of players are banged up, but they can play. The bye week comes at a great time to rest, recuperate, and treat the nagging issues which can heal. Post season surgeries could occur for a few to clean up issues from the season. It happens each year and Spring is the time to heal from those injuries, like knee scopes, labrum/rotator cuff surgeries, etc. Here is a quick rundown:Denzel Mims with ankle/foot issues as well as his thumb getting dinged up againSqwirl recovering from his meniscus issueConnor Galvin recovering from his meniscus issue, which was lesser injury than Sqwirl. Galvin has had two full weeks of recovery and the bye week is 3, Saturday after WVU is 4 weeks, then TCU will be 5 weeks and the prognosis was 4-6 weeks until he returned. Gaining his services would give the OL another shot in the armSeveral OL have aches and pains, but nothing structural to dateTrestan Ebner is still recovering from a contusion to his leg following the UTSA gameJohn Lovett is still a mystery to his injuryGrayland Arnold strained a hamstring, but should be ok in a couple of weeksNoah Rauschenberg needs time on his groin injuryRyan Miller looks to be headed to a redshirt at NT/DT to further his careerStill tracking down Gabe Hall's issue from practiceJames Lockhart got the wind knocked out of him during the game and returnedConfidence and trust within the team continues to be high and growing. The loss of Johnston against Tech was seen as a setback by the players and staff, but the adjustment was quick with Bernard and Williams stepping into the void of leadership. Long snapper Ross Matiscik also spelled Bernard for several plays as he did in 2017 and 2018 when needed. This is preserving Matt Jones redshirt. Need Ashton Logan to step up to fill snaps and earn the position of the future or Jones could pass him quickly. Commit Anthony Anyanwu of Sachse is moving around the Mustang defense. He's lining up as a standup OLB, MLB, 5 tech, and 7 with both hands on the ground. The growth from 2018 into 2019 is massive and at 6-3 240, he will have the opportunity to play multiple positions for the Bears with his explosion.Commit Alven Johnson is also moving around for his team with time inside as a 3 tech and his usual 7 tech position. Johnson is now 260 at 6-4 and will continue to add weight to his large frame at Baylor.

More Camp Notes
Kalon Barnes is coming on which allows Grayland Arnold to slide to safety more effective. Arnold is seen as a ballhawking type of athlete which will free up Coach Snow to disguise packages and blitzes. Raleigh Texada is holding the other position down and the battle could be Houston/Barnes/Arnold depending on the package for the other side of the field.Denzel Mims is wearing a protective cover over his injury, but it is just that, protection and not a new injury. He catches without it, but the staff is being careful not to have issues prior to the season. Niadre Zouzoua had a stomach bug and lost some weight, but has fought through the tough practices in the heat. He's not going to be outworked is what one source told me.Ryan Miller running 1st team isn't a fluke as Colt also alluded to. He's taken to the position and things could change once pads come on, but his aggression and burst is expected to occupy OL inside. "He just doesn't take plays off."Connor Galvin is looking great and might be the type to get enough NFL interest to leave after his Junior season. Casey Phillips is his backup and despite his ability, he's not quite Galvin yet. That is to be expected as he'll need game experience to show his potential and what needs to be worked on.John Lovett has taken a major step forward in his physicality and is likely the short yardage back at this time.
