Filling the holes - Training Camp July 30 - Evening Practice

By admin Published: July 30, 2008

Travis & Travis sounds like a law firm.

It's not, but two players who share that name - Travis Thomas and Travis Wilson - may actually make contributions to the Browns this year.  I mentioned Thomas in my post earlier today.

Wilson has been drawing a lot of attention because the former third round draft pick out of Oklahoma looks to be living up to the potential that the Browns saw in him when they took him in the '06 draft.  Like Thomas, Wilson continues to impress with his consistency in camp.  He snared several passes in the evening practice.  That hasn't been the problem throughout his career, however. Catching them consistently has been.

A situation exists in on this team that the third receiver role is wide open and it's anyone's for the taking.  Josh Cribbs has had little problem believing he's up to the task.  Yet, it's Wilson who continues to catch the attention of fans and the assembled media.

If Kellen Winslow plays in games the way he is during training camp, opposing linebackers and DBs will be in trouble.  Winslow caught several balls this evening and looked unstoppable on runs after those catches.  His potential backup, fourth-round choice Martin Rucker, also got in the act looking good on one reception.

The big question on the defensive side of the ball very well may be who is Alex Hall is.  Should you make it to training camp, play close attention.  The linebacker defensed several passes like a veteran.
