Reggie was not able to participate much in Mini Camp, because of a graduation rule. Ernest AKA "The Big Hand" meanwhile was turning heads in Mini camp with his spectacular athletesism. Ernest got a headstart, and my overall assessment of his performance so far in camp is putting Ernest in 1st round form. Ernest as well as Reggie have been stunning in the run blocking department.
The only thing setting these two apart IMO is the fact that Ernest has had more opportunity to develop with the system, but Reggie has at the moment these guys are pretty much closed the gap. These guys are running neck and neck in the competition department for the #2 spot. But Reggie being a first round pick, pretty much command the #2 position at the moment. Both are stellar athlete's who look to be the future 1-2 guy's for the Jags with Byron at the Helm.
Former 1st rnd pick Troy Edwards, is sliding down the depth chart. How far he slide's will be determined by the performance of Hankton, Redmond and Hatchette who are in a desperate struggle to find their place on the depth chart, as rookie Fred stamps is nipping at their heels.
