Watching practice, the receiver that stood out to me the most was rookie Chris Givens. The fourth-round pick moves so well and with so much explosiveness zipping around the field. Quarterback Sam Bradford took notice too, giving the media a heads up on the Wake Forest product following Friday's practice.

"It's hard to single out one guy, but I think Chris Givens has played really well over the past couple weeks," Bradford said. "He's smart, he understands what we're doing. Rarely does he make a mental mistake. He always seems to be in the right position. I've definitely been impressed with what he's been able to do throughout camp so far."

Like so many draft picks, Givens' 40 time got him some early notice, so did a pair of surgically repaired ACLs, which pushed him into the fourth round when he could have been a third- or even second-round pick.

The receivers will rotate in and out with the first team this weekend, though Givens and Brian Quick, his fellow rookie, will be doing most of their work with the second team.

Bradford also spoke highly of Quick.

"I think Quick obviously has got a lot of talent," Bradford said. "He's made some big catches during camp. It'll be nice to get him rolling. I'm really happy with where he's at right now. Like I said, we've still got a couple weeks and I think if he can continue to make progress and make the strides that he's already made, I think he'll definitely be a major contributor for us during the regular season."
