Notre Dame conducted its third practice of the spring – the first of which was in full pads. Here’s a quick recap of all of the practice videos put out on the Notre Dame athletic departments YouTube channel – one from each practice session.
Notre Dame Spring Practice Day 1
The position battles at quarterback, cornerback, and right guard and tackle are highlighted with some comments from Brian Kelly.
Notre Dame Spring Practice Day 2
This video highlights the linebacking corps. There’s a interesting drill with all of the linebackers dropping into coverage and defending a pass. One thing that stood out to me here was how comfortable and smooth Justin Utupo looked in coverage compared to some of the other inside backers. Bob Diaco talks a little bit about the depth and experience the Irish have at the position towards the end.
Notre Dame Spring Practice Day 3
The first day of full contact with the video showing one on one blocking drills, the rodeo drill, and some 11 on 11 scrimmage. Check out the 5;22 mark for a really nice throw by Gunner Kiel and the 7:15 mark for a long run by Theo Riddick out of the backfield.
