Eagles Training Camp: Jason Avant Doesn't Drop Anything

The Eagles website had this little tidbit that kind of blew me away.

Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said on Tuesday that while checking the team’s stats through training camp two days ago, Avant had around 80 catches and zero drops … in competitive drills.

I believe it too. Every day I’ve been up at camp Avant has made plays. I have no problem saying that he’s been arguably the best offensive player at Lehigh this year. Marty seems to agree.

“I’m not sure I’ve ever had a receiver that has had quite this type of camp, as far as catching the ball. I just looked at the numbers about a day and a half ago and he has caught up near 80 balls - now this is under competitive, this doesn’t include the competitive 7-on-7 – zero drops. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a man do that.”
