    • There was no question of the improvement of David Arkin from this season to what we have seen the last two from him in training camp. I had honestly given up on Arkin, which is a cardinal sin for a personnel man, especially at offensive line because I just had not seen the strength and technique development and I was prepared to move on but I was wrong.
      Arkin was not perfect and was actually poor on two plays where he looked like the player of old. He was over extended and off balance and when he plays that way, he is no good to this line. During this game, he drew Arizona's best defensive linemen, Calais Campbell and was able to play him to a draw. Arkin's hands and feet worked very well together and he didn't put himself in difficult positions to block. He was able to work with both Travis Frederick and Tyron Smith to pass stunts or to help when uncovered. In the running game, he had some good fits but still plays on the edge at times too which he will need to clean up.

      What David Arkin has shown in this camp that he does have the flexibility to play either guard spot in a backup role and be dependable. Ronald Leary and Mackenzy Bernadeau are better players and should start over Arkin but the days of questioning why he still is on this team will no longer be asked by me.
    • If you ask me of a rookie that has come into camp and appears to be ready to play right now, I would be caught between Travis Frederick andDeVonte Holloman.

    I have to admit that I'd given up on Arkin also. I want him on the roster now.

    Almost like he read the board and talked about every issue here.

    Would like to know how Berny is better than Arkin at this point cause I'm all of a sudden having a problem seeing it. As for Escobar, we will really have to run more 12 for the pick to make sense, and right now we haven't seen very much of it. The thinking of us 'hiding' it doesn't make sense only cause if its our new base, we have to practice it before the opener.

    Me too. Arkin took on Calais Campbell and did a good job for goodness sake, not Pee Wee Herman. Berny still has too many Chinese Fire Drill moments for my taste.

    He may need another year to refine his game and gain more strength
