Q: What is WR Jaylen Waddle giving you compared to what you thought you were getting when you drafted him?
BF: Jaylen is a tough, smart kid. Football is important to him. Improvement is important to him. He’s a good teammate. He’s as excited about someone else making a catch or having a good run or a good block as anything he does. There’s selflessness there. We knew that. It’s been fun working with him. He’s still got a long way to go. He’s a rookie. He’s still getting used to practicing in this league and the competition in this league. These preseason games, these joint practices, are good for him and really all of our cookies. I’ve been very pleased with him.
Q: Where have you seen the most improvement in WR Jaylen Waddle over the last three weeks?
BF: For all the rookies, I think when you come into this type of environment, all of it is so new. I think creating a routine for yourself and learning how to be a professional and what that is. For all of them — you asked specifically about Jaylen Waddle — but learning or figuring out a routine for yourself that’s going to help you perform at the best of your capabilities. I think that’s something all of our rookies are still trying to figure that out. Do I cold tub after practice? Do I get a massage on my off day? Do I get in the cryo chamber? They’re listening; they’re taking the coaching. We’re coaching them up. I know you talked specifically about Jaylen but Jaylen in particular is just trying to find the best things and asking a lot of questions about the best ways to keep his body healthy and keep his mind healthy so that he can go out there and perform.
Q: With your running backs, which one do you think has separated themselves the most from the rest of the room at this point in camp?
BF: We like all our backs. They’re all a little bit different. They all have the ability to play multiple downs. We are going to try to use them all. From Malcolm (Brown) to Myles (Gaskin) to Salvon (Ahmed). Patrick Laird has gone in there and done some good things. (Jordan) Scarlett has gone in there, he had a couple good runs last week. (Gerrid) Doaks has gone in there and had some good runs. We try to use them all.
Q: You did you see from RB Myles Gaskin tonight (Atlanta Game) – in both running and in the passing game?
