Marcus Mariota finished Sunday session very well

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Stuff of note from Sunday’s training camp practice:

I still see some timing and anticipation issues from Marcus Mariota, and we’ve been told by smart people to expect such things as he gets the new offense down and that thinks will eventually fully click in. He had an early boot left with a throwback deep right for Walker that was good – Will Compton got a bit lost and would have been called for PI. That’s the sort of mismatch the Titans should eat up.MariotaCampHood

Mariota threw a few balls I thought weren’t driven enough and that had a slight wobble. Adoree' Jackson broke one of them up intended for Taywan Taylor that had a good trajectory but was a touch short and wobbly. In the final period, however, Mariota was excellent. He hit Darius Jennings with Logan Ryan in coverage. He had a strong throw up the right seam to Walker. He pulled one down in a collapsing pocket and took off. He zipped another to Jennings, who’s dive to collect it beat Jackson and set up the desired field goal.

The one-on-one passing period pitting receivers against corners had a twist, as each snap alternated with a pass rusher taking on an offensive lineman with Mariota dropping back. Mike Vrabel said he mixed them together for guy to have more of an audience of peers while working one-on-one, which is the core of the game. But he said he’ll need to look at it to see if there was any gain that would make it a regular or semi-regular feature.
