The Chiefs selected defensive lineman Kahlil McKenzie, son of Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, last week in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
At the same time, NFL clubs have reduced the length of offseason and regular-season practices, as well as the amount of contact allowed in both, as part of a new labor pact struck with the players union in 2011. DeCamillis believes that agreement led to an unintended consequence 鈥?sloppier fundamentals and tackling techniques that are causing players to get hurt more.
Some of the things technique-wise we can get across 鈥?keeping our heads up, how we’re teaching tackling and blocking -鈥?those are the things that you see over and over on the film that we’ve gotta eliminate,DeCamillis said. I think guys are really making an effort to Womens Vadim Shipachyov Jersey do that, but it’s going to take a lot more effort on our part. We just have to do a better job of coaching it as much as we can.
Baltimore has also added defensive ends Myles Humphrey and Christian LaCouture as undrafted free agent signings in the last two weeks since the NFL Draft.
Gregorius didn’t talk to reporters before Saturday’s game, but Boone addressed the topic at length in his pre-game media session.

I think it’s a matter of he’s not in a real strong powerful position like he was most of the first month where he could do damage, Boone said. Sometimes right now when he’s barreling balls, it’s not quite with the impact just because he’s so good at touching the ball if he decides to swing.
Boone went to explain how Gregorius makes contact on pitches that many other big leaguers don’t hit, but that they’d mostly led to groundouts, flyouts or popups during his slump.
I think sometimes we’ve seen through this stretch where he’s hit frankly a fair number of balls on the nose, but maybe not with that slug impact that we’re used to seeing, Boone added. I think part of (the reason for) that is because he’s so good at getting the barrel to the ball. When he goes to swing, if he’s not in a great position to really hit it with authority, it results in putting it into play for an out sometimes. Sometimes it can be a result of something he’s really skilled it.
