USC's Cameron makes impression at Shrine game


Todd McShay, Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl are blogging from the Shrine Game practices, and you can keep up with their day two updates here and here.

The only Pac-10 note was on former USC tight end Jordan Cameron, who earned a tip of the cap from Steve Muench as a "top performer."

Wrote Muench:

He is really athletic and I love the way he gets off the line. He uses his hands really well to get defenders off him and get a good release. Once he's free, he quickly gets into his route, has a good burst at the top of his stem, tracks the ball well and caught everything thrown his way today. He doesn't have great speed, but he has enough speed to stretch the field and man an occasional play downfield.

Cameron caught just 16 passes for 126 yards with a touchdown this season. He spend most of his career as a big receiver before converting to tight end.
