Phil Savage impressed by Rams visit
But now Savage works as the executive director of the Senior Bowl and does television work right here on ESPN as a contributor to "NFL Insiders." Savage stopped by Rams Park on Tuesday and watched the St. Louis Rams' first padded practice. He walked the sidelines and spent much of the workout next to current Rams general manager Les Snead.
Wednesday morning, Savage offered thoughts on what he saw on his Twitter account, @SeniorBowlPhil. Among the players standing out to Savage: defensive ends Robert Quinn and Chris Long, linebacker Alec Ogletree, defensive tackle Aaron Donald, tight end Cory Harkey and quarterback Sam Bradford.
Savage is scheduled to appear on NFL Insiders on Thursday and has promised to offer more takeaways from his visit to Rams Park. The show is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Here's a sampling of Savage's initial thoughts:
For @STLouisRams to break thru, need QB Sam Bradford healthy and available, the WR corps to step up big-time and more consistency from DB's.— Phil Savage (@SeniorBowlPhil) July 30, 2014
QB Sam Bradford made several really nice downfield throws. @STLouisRams people think he is in great shape and 100% ready for season.— Phil Savage (@SeniorBowlPhil) July 30, 2014
@STLouisRams DT Michael Brockers should be in SR year at LSU. Instead, entering 3rd year as a pro. Over-shadowed talent with huge upside.— Phil Savage (@SeniorBowlPhil) July 30, 2014
