Another impressive number of Bobcats showed up to voluntary offseason conditioning this afternoon.
It’s hard to believe, but in less than 10 days Texas State reports to its first practice in preparation for the 2013 season. On Aug. 31, the Bobcats open their second campaign as members of the Football Bowl Subdivision at Southern Mississippi.
Texas State didn’t run 7-on-7 drills after conditioning due to a smaller number of defensive backs available. Instead, the Bobcats ran positional drills with linebackers and defensive backs working on coverages, offensive linemen went through schemes and quarterbacks and running backs/wide receivers flowed through routes.
Each quarterback got a healthy amount of throws in, which allowed a bit of time to critique.
Tyler Arndt: Solid as usual. Placing the ball better than he ever has on short passes and leading receivers better on longer throws, especially those to the sideline. Developing a good rapport with Brice Gunter.
Jordan Moore: Improved his footwork since spring camp. Getting a better rotation on the ball. Impressed with his throws on outs. Interested to see how he’ll perform facing a rush.
Duke DeLancellotti: A solid summer should put him back in contention to at least fight for second-string positioning. Improved his arm strength and throws coming out of his hand finally have zip.
Tyler Jones: Surprised he gets so much force behind the ball for being a smaller quarterback.
