The Arizona State Sun Devils have now completed Friday’s session of fall camp inside of the Verde Dickey Dome, the final session before Saturday’s closed-door scrimmage. Players were only required to wear helmets.

In the company of media, the team worked through three portions, which included a circuit, ball-security session, and two series of the full-team, 11-on-11 two-minute drill.

Players in Green

Green pennies: Maurice Chandler (DB), Mitchell Frabroni (LS), Marshal Nathe (OL), Tyson Rising (OL), and Grant Martinez (TE) each were spotted working out on the side in “Muscle Beach” during individual drills.

  • Defensive end JoJo Wicker also worked out on the side in Muscle Beach.
  • Tight end Raymond Epps sported a brace on his right hand/wrist, but went through position drills.

NFL at Practice

The Chicago Bears had a scout in attendance at Friday’s practice. He and ASU head coach Todd Graham discussed former Sun Devil defensive tackle Will Sutton.

The scout said Sutton is currently down to 295 pounds; a stark contrast to the 325 pounds he weighed during his senior year in Tempe.

Next

Tomorrow, the team will participate in a scrimmage. Graham said the scrimmage will provide further insight into the quarterback competition, as well as other positions facing competition.
