Adrian Clayborn

Five things that stood out to me at Friday's training camp practice: 1) Left tackle Isaiah Wynn had some of his most notable struggles in 1-on-1 work that I've seen, with Adrian Clayborn powering into him on one rep for an easy win. That will be good tape for Wynn to watch to fine-tune his technique; 2) Attrition adding up on the offensive line with Jason King recovering from a knee injury and Brian Schwenke leaving with a leg injury, which led Wynn to take his first snaps at left guard in 11-on-11 work; 3) First-year DL Keionta Davis with a decisive win in 1-on-1 drills from an interior rushing position. 4) Interceptions by Jordan Richards and Jason McCourty – both against Brian Hoyer; 5) No sign of rookie RB Sony Michel for the second straight day after he had left Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury.
