Taking Stock of Eagles Training Camp: Day 2

The second day of training camp is now in the books. So, who left the biggest mark? Certainly, a lot of press was dedicated to the arrival of second-round pick Nate Allen, who took the field today after a one-day holdout (read all about his perceptions on his first day here). But what about the other rookies and selected veterans who were toiling in the brutal Lehigh sun? Here's a brief look at who's stock is on the rise and who's is falling after practice number two:

Stock on the Rise:

Chad Hall: Still in contention for BGN's Na Brown award, the speedy little Hall continued to impress today, hauling in sideline catches as well as deep balls. He showed a knack for keeping both feet in bounds when forced to the sideline. This also marks the second day in a row where he has caught a touchdown pass from Kevin Kolb. If the former Air Force standout is going to develop a rapport with anyone on the team, his best bet would be to buddy up with the franchise QB.

Riley Cooper: Speaking of talented young receivers, Cooper had a pretty impressive day himself, displaying a very physical presence and refusing to be jammed at the line of scrimmage. He has reportedly looked great during fade routes and should prove to be a threat in the redzone if his progress continues.

Trevard Lindley: By many accounts, Lindley has been having a great camp so far. He's been great with locking down receivers (although he'll have to watch his play if he doesn't want to draw any pass interference calls).

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim: Showing his signature ferocity throughout the day, Te'o earned some praise from Andy Reid during his morning press conference. He has performed well during one-on-one o-line/d-line drills, especially.

Dallas Reynolds: Another player singled out during Reid's press conference, Reynolds has apparently improved a lot since his on-and-off roller coaster ride with the Eagles last season. Reid stated that the former undrafted rookie "had a good offseason" and mentioned him among the offensive linemen who he thought had stood out that day.

 

Stock Falling:

Brandon Graham: No news on the progress of Graham's contract, but word is that it's still nowhere close to getting signed.

Kevin Jurovich: After suffering what Andy Reid dubbed a quad contusion during yesterday's second practice, the young wide receiver spent the entire day on the sidelines. Needless to say, for an undrafted rookie fighting for a roster spot at a position that's already deemed very deep, every day missed is a huge blow.

Dobson Collins: Last year's practice squad receiver had a little trouble staying in his routes today. He was out of position a few times and earned himself a talking-to from Marty Mornhinweg.
