NFL at ASU
The Carolina Panthers, Buffalo Bills and Houston Texas each had one scout at practice.
Wilkins: Richard either ran the ball or was thrown a screen pass for nearly every play. Wilkins started the drive at his own 20-yard line and ended it midway through the opposite side of the field.
Barnett: The sophomore quarterback ended his drive with a touchdown pass to Ryan Newsome.
Wilkins: 1. Richard ran up the middle for about a yard. 2. A flag was thrown, and Graham yelled “holding up number 65!” McCollum tagged the offense with a penalty. 3. Richard ran for three yards. 4. Wilkins threw a screen to Harvey who took a step forward before he was hit hard by Bryant and lost the football, and the defense recovered the fumble. 5. Ballage found room and got about five yards on an explosive run. 6. Humphrey took a hand off and was tackled in the backfield.
Barnett: 1. Benjamin ran to the right side of the field and was wrapped up after three yards. 2. Graham screams “second and two!” Benjamin is given the ball again, but doesn’t convert as he’s tackled after a yard. 3. Barnett rolls out of the pocket and throws into open space about ten yards in front of him to the right side. The throw away didn’t happen because he was covered, but likely because of a miscommunication between him and Williams who was the nearest receiver. 5. Barnett then tried to run it himself on the final play, but a whistle was blown to halt the play right before he was about to make contact with a lineman near the middle of the field.
ASU punter Michael Sleep-Dalton, a Geelong, Australia native, was seen kicking rugby-styled punts. Former Oregon State running back Paul Lucas was practicing as the return man alongside Humphrey.
