UCLA started a second week of open use with a full-pads use on Tuesday. Here are records and observations from a day:

Time: 2 hours, 17 minutes

Attire: Full pads

Notebook: After final year’s debacle, the defensive line needs a “violent” makeover


Personnel notes:


Injury notes:

  • Greg Rogers seemed in a yellow jersey and a right knee prop Tuesday. He didn’t attend in any hit drills. we didn’t see if a defensive lineman got harm during Saturday’s practice, so uncertain where a damage originated.
  • Brandon Stephens, who was seen operative out on a sideline during a finish of Saturday’s practice, was behind during full speed Tuesday.
  • Other injuries remained a same: Josh Woods, Keyon Riley, Colin Samuel, Jaelan Phillips, Caleb Wilson, Michael Alves, Jax Wacaser

Notes and observations:

  • Big day for linebackers in coverage as Mique Juarez and Krys Barnes both had interceptions. Juarez picked off Devon Modster in a initial seven-on-seven duration on an ungainly play where it seemed that Modster got held between dual minds and wanted to chuck one instruction and pulled a round behind unexpected to a other side where Juarez was waiting. The former five-star awaiting also sloping a pass from Austin Burton that was picked off in a group period. Juarez did good in coverage in use Saturday also, so it seems he’s building adult some movement for himself. Barnes picked Modster off in a group duration and had a good pass dissection opposite Jimmy Jaggers on a chuck from Modster in a final group period.
  • Four days into practice, a trend we see is that when Boss Tagaloa misfires on a snap, it’ll be too low, while Zach Sweeney some-more mostly puts snaps high and wide. Sweeney had 3 high snaps between dual quarterbacks in a group period, including one that roughly went directly to a using back. Josh Kelly was channel in front of Austin Burton to take a handoff and a round hot-potatoed between a quarterback and a using back, though was cumulative fast adequate to go as a benefit of a few yards. In a final group period, Tagaloa rolled a snap past Modster afterwards on a subsequent repute had a round stop brief of a quarterback on a belligerent on another low snap.
  • Starting defensive line was Chigozie Nnoruka or Martin Andrus in a center with Rick Wade and Osa Odighizuwa on a outside.
  • The defensive line and a outward linebackers seemed to, again, get a best of a descent line. In a final group period, that was focused on third-down situations, there were a lot of haunt sacks entrance from flattering most each direction. Andrus got into a backfield adult a middle. Odua Isibor and Nnoruka got by on a right and left sides, respectively. Keisean Lucier-South continues to shine. Perhaps a change in invulnerability is his possibility to comprehend his Anthony Barr destiny.
  • Quentin Lake roughly had an interception in seven-on-seven though forsaken a pass that went true to him. we was roughly certain that he was going to get an interception on a play after in a group period, though Modster instead lofted a ideal chuck over a jumping safety. It was substantially a quarterback’s best chuck of a open so far.
  • Damian Alloway had an considerable locate in a final group period, holding a round divided from a defensive behind when a defender seemed to have most improved position on a round thrown from Lynch.
  • Other seven-on-seven highlights:
    • Austin Burton threw a good 40-yard touchdown to Theo Howard when Howard separate a safeties and ran into a finish section simply in seven-on-seven.
    • Mo Osling III had a good pass breakup.
