Hunter Henry gets first look at Antonio Gates - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"His resumé in college speaks for itself," Gates said. "But when I walked in, from the first time of being around him, I could tell he’s a guy who studies in the classroom. The tunnel vision of wanting to be a great player in this league, he has that. You can tell, he’s very attentive to what I have to say to him, and he’s willing to learn. To me, that’s always the start. If you see a guy who comes in from the collegiate level and thinks he knows it all, I don’t really gravitate toward him as much. But that kid, he’s a phenomenal kid."

Evaluating the Running Backs with RB Coach Ollie Wilson - Ricky Henne
He’s the leader. He sets an example for everyone, and the rest of the group buys in. If I was a young guy coming into this league, and I saw how Danny Woodhead acts, and how he has been so successful in this league and played as long as he has, I would follow as close as I could to him and follow everything he does.

23. Mike McCoy, Chargers You can’t coach health, so it’s hard to put the Chargers’ recent struggles all on McCoy. He’s produced consistently productive offenses during his three-year tenure in San Diego. And his offense, which is built around quick timing throws, suits Philip Rivers perfectly. The 2016 season — assuming the Chargers finally stay healthy — should give us a better idea of just how good McCoy really is.
