Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Jared Goff is locked in as the starter. He may struggle in an offense that, after T.J. Hockenson and D'Andre Swift, has one of the worst supporting casts in the league. Tim Boyle and David Blough have gone back and forth in their quest for the backup job. Blough was better in the second preseason game but struggled in the final game. Boyle wasn’t any better than Blough in the last tilt, losing a strip-sack fumble before throwing a touchdown on the ensuing drive. Blough replaced Boyle and had extended playing time with an interception but showed the ability to create on the ground and keep plays alive. Head coach Dan Campbell noted that the team could keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster.
D'Andre Swift returned to full-team drills last week and had multiple touchdown receptions during 11-on-11s. Running back coach Duce Staley said of Swift, “I’m concerned. You want to get him out there to get used to the speed of the game, to get on the same page with your quarterback.” Campbell echoed Staley, “Swift concerns me a little bit, just with getting his wind back before being able to take a [full workload].” Jamaal Williams slots behind Swift, but will play a significant role. The third running back spot is unsettled. Chris Burke of The Athletic notes the coaches like Jermar Jefferson, even though he’s struggled in pass protection. Burke added Craig Reynolds, Godwin Igwebuike, and Derick Mills “are taking the RB3 race to the wire.” Reynolds is probably destined for the practice squad. Igwebuike, the converted defensive back, has grown during camp, with Burke projecting him to make the 53 man roster behind Swift, Williams, and Jefferson.
