Wide receiver Josh Mellon had a strong day, making three long catches from backup quarterback Mike White. Mellon will have to fight for a roster spot, but he did have some good moments at camp.
Dealing with the fly on the left. Packers had a hard time with linebacker Preston Smith, who beat him for two sacks (if handled from there) and a few other times put pressure on Zach Wilson.
Caught my eye
Cornerback Julien Gaidri made a good play near the goal line during a two-minute drill. It forced Aquinas St. Brown to receive packers on the 1 yard line, preventing touchdowns.
Zac Wilson’s Day.
Wilson The offensive line was under a lot of pressure in practice with the struggle. He was “fired” seven times by my count. He passed 12 out of 23, but two of them were incomplete.
