The day after: Extra observations, plus turning a weakness into a strength and Keary Colbert reflects

By Pedro Moura

It's the day after USC's third practice of fall camp. As we will have after most of the month-long camp schedule, here are a few extra observations and a video interview from Friday's practice:


Former Trojans receiver Keary Colbert, who graduated from USC in 2004 as the school's all-time leader in receptions on his way to a five-year NFL career, re-joined the squad in the spring as a graduate assistant coaching the tight ends.

Colbert, 28, brings a unique perspective -- he's young enough to relate to the athletes but old and experienced enough to be a coach.

In a video interview taken this week, Colbert talks about his natural love for the wide receiver position, his role in tutoring a big group of both young and old tight ends and the whirlwind last six years of his career.

Hear all of his comments -- including his thoughts on the USC-to-NFL pipeline:
