Rapid Fire: Prince, Thigpen, Lucien shine in team drills

QB Kevin Prince had one of his best days today accentuated by a 77-yard touchdown pass to WR Shaq Evans, a zip over the shoulder and away from CB Aaron Hester. Prince didn’t hold back his emotions, rushing over to Evans for a high-five. QB Richard Brehaut also connected on touchdown pass to Jerry Rice Jr., whose burst on catch is really impressive. Brehaut also connected with a little help from WR Jerry Johnson who made a fantastic diving catch. WR Devin Lucien made turned heads when he went upstairs for a completion on a Brett Hundley pass. RB Damien Thigpen impressed, too. He had a couple of nice big runs. He’s really showing good awareness of gaps. He’s also becoming a good blocker in the backfield. WR Jordon James who made a some nice cutbacks and finds the seams. James looks like he’s ready to contribute and won’t shy from contact. That physical style will only serve him well. It should be noted that James did fumble. CB Marcus Rios recorded an interception as did S Tevin McDonald off Hundley, who was looking for WR Sam Handler in the red zone. The kickers got a chance to strut their stuff. Ka’imi Fairbairn and Justin Moreno showed consistency from shorter range but struggled as both missed from the 51-yard line. Fairbairn went wide right and Moreno went wide left. Fairbairn also converted from the 43-yard line. The team simulated crowd noise as they surrounded both kickers from every spot they took turns kicking, and a handful of them also simulated wet conditions by squeezing water out of their Gatorade bottles.
