The Saints shocked some fans when they released running back Jonathan Williams last week; favoring rookie Boston Scott as the back up to Alvin Kamara. Scott’s ability in special teams was most likely a contributor for Williams’s release Womens Alvin Kamara Jersey , but he showed throughout the preseason that he was a capable runner. It’s the reason many of us were even more shocked by his release. Hopefully, his release was just temporary—possibly due to an injury to Andrus Peat—and he can land on the practice squad where we can see him eventually in Sean Payton’s offense. Scott has the vision, burst, and power needed to be capable of running the multiple blocking schemes the Saints use. Deuce Windham gives a great explanation of the different schemes here. We’ll look at some of the plays that showcased his abilities in the preseason. The first run play is a typical zone blocking scheme to the left. The offensive line will move in unison towards the sideline and attempt to open multiple creases. The running back must possess the vision to see where the open crease is, make a cut, and hit the hole. Scott shows all three here. As he receives the handoff his eyes are looking at the line of scrimmage. He sees the outside linebacker seal the edge and the defensive tackle getting off of the center’s block, so he plants his foot and “bangs” the run to the inside for positive yardage. Scott’s vision is on display here again with a DUO run called. This is a man blocking scheme that features two combo blocks. The center and guard will block the defensive tackle while the right tackle and tight end will block the defensive end. The play is designed to be an inside run through the right A-gap, but the defensive tackle is able to get to the outside of the center’s block and fill the running lane. Scott sees this, makes a jump cut and hits the D-gap. Not only does he have the vision to make the proper read, he shows off his strength by carrying two tacklers for an extra 2 yards.Standing at only 5’6” and 203 pounds, some may consider Scott’s size to be a negative. For comparison Womens Josh LeRibeus Jersey , Kamara stands at 5’10” and 215 pounds. Those 4 extra inches only account for 12 more pounds, meaning Scott is not as small as he being made out to be. Not that Scott is on the same level, but Maurice Jones-Drew only weighed 207 pounds and stood at 5’7” coming out of college and went on to have a great NFL career. Due to his height and low center of gravity, he’s able to play lower to the ground than the defenders making it harder to be tackled. Scott will show his strength when the Saints call an ISO run. The fullback Edmunds will lead the way through the A-gap for Scott with man blocking upfront. The defensive tackle is able to get off of the left tackle’s block and clog the running lane. Scott is able to drop his shoulder and break the attempted tackle before accelerating to pick up yards after contact.While the rookie is not a finished product, and not as skilled as Kamara, he should be able to contribute to this team. His pass protection is still a question mark, as is his effectiveness receiving out of the backfield and out wide. His current skill set should allow him to have a meaningful role in this offense. If anything happens to Case Keenum, the Denver Broncos' offense would be in the hands of Kevin Hogan, who rose up the depth chart when Chad Kelly slipped up.A third-year pro, Hogan has one NFL start on a resume that includes more wins (36) and total yardage (10,634) in college than any of the all-time great quarterbacks who played for Stanford Womens Benjamin Watson Jersey , including his boss, John Elway."Kevin has played in games. He's a smart guy," coach Vance Joseph said. "He's picked it up quick and we have full confidence in Kevin."The Broncos were awarded Hogan off waivers from Washington last month after Kelly beat out first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the No. 2 job in Denver.Kelly was dismissed from the team Wednesday , a day after his arrest on suspicion on criminal trespass in the hours after a team-building Halloween party in suburban Englewood.In Hogan, Keenum sees much of himself."I have a lot of trust in Kevin. I think, similar paths. Been on a few teams and he's done a great job stepping in and getting a lot of mental reps every day," Keenum said. "Getting better every day. He's done a great job, great team guy, great locker room guy to be around. I have complete trust in him if he needs to step in."On Thursday, the Broncos added former Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson to their practice squad after promoting receiver/returner Isaiah McKenzie to their active roster. Grayson is a third-year pro who spent two seasons on the Saints' active roster and practice squad (2015-16) and last year on the Falcons' practice squad."Isaiah's been working very hard. He's got a skillset that you can't teach and that's speed," Joseph said Thursday. "So Youth Cameron Jordan Jersey , when you can add a guy with that kind of speed, it's always a good thing."Joseph said Grayson was "a guy that we've been tracking here for a couple of years. He fits the skillset that our quarterbacks have. He can move, he's got a very good arm, he's a smart guy. He's been on an active roster in New Orleans for two years, so he's got some experience."So, having that spot available, pushing Isaiah up to the roster and bringing up a guy of that caliber, that will help us in the future."The Broncos (3-4) travel to Kansas City (6-1) this weekend to face the team that drafted Hogan in the fifth round in 2016."These things have a funny way of coming full-circle," said Hogan, who will be active Sunday for the first time with the Broncos. "It's going to be fun to go out there and suit up. I'm not worried about that right now. My job is to get myself prepared, but also to get Case as prepared as possible."Hogan still has a big fan in Chiefs coach Andy Reid."I love him Womens Patrick Robinson Jersey ," Reid said. "He's got sniper vision. He's got great eyes and he sees everything. I'm pulling for him. I'm one of his fans. I like the way he goes about his business. He's a brilliant kid."Elway's record on QB acquisitions is spotty aside from luring Peyton Manning to Denver for the second chapter of his brilliant career.Ever since Manning's retirement in 2016, the Broncos have had their troubles at quarterback, whether with free agent Mark Sanchez or draft picks Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, Lynch or Kelly.Even Keenum's acquisition is looking more like a short-term situation.He signed a two-year, $36 million deal in March after leading the Vikings to the NFC championship game, but he's off to a middling start in Denver with eight TDs and nine interceptions and is the only quarterback in the league with interceptions in all seven of his team's games.He missed a wide-open Demaryius Thomas for the go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of Denver's 27-23 loss at home to the Chiefs on Oct. 1, and was booed in a 23-20 loss to the Rams in Denver two weeks later.Hogan has been a game-day inactive all season but now will be one snap away from playing."I feel very prepared. This is going on Week 7 or 8 in the system and I spend a lot of time working and studying," Hogan said. "I always took the game plan seriously and prepared as if I was playing. I'm not going to treat it any differently, just going to put the uniform on."
