That's right folks the 2012 CFL season is just weeks away as rookie training camps open up for the teams and I was at the first dat of Eskimos rookie camp...here's some of my thoughts on the first day...
-Junior players from the Edmonton Huskies and Wildcats of the CJFL were invited to training camp and looked pretty good at Clarke Park, U of Alberta QB Curtis Dell was the standout among them and could possibly have a future in the CFL possibly leading the future of Canadian quarterbacks.
-The vetern QBs threw a bit in the camp but Kerry Joseph did more coaching and playing defensive back, could be a look into the future as I could see him one day becoming an offensive co-ordinator.
-Brett Haenini a fullback out of Acadia looked good catching the ball out of the backfield, could be Mathieu Bertrand's replacement when he decides to hang em up.
-Matt Nichols and Jeremiah Masoli had some of the best day 1 performances, these two I do think if they have a solid training camp have the ability make leaps and bounds on the QB depth chart.
-Eric Ward and Nichols wore cameras on their helmets a new feature that Kavis Reed wanted last year but was unable to do, it's purpose? To be able to see what the gunslinger sees to get a better understanding of his quarterbacks.
-There were more cameras than usual around camp today stay tuned for what that could be about....
