Practice continued on Monday for the St. Louis Rams. The pads will sit in the players' lockers until Wednesday, but that did nothing to dampen the intensity of the work on the field for day two. Defense dominated the conversation at practice on Monday, with reports of the defensive line giving quarterback Sam Bradford little room to work. It makes you wonder how things would have looked with pads on.

Fans on the scene shared a long list of observations from practice, ranging from the play of the wide receivers to the work being done by the team's cornerbacks and even the special teams players.

Among the things to keep an eye on are the first-team reps for the wide receivers. as you would expect, Danny Amendola had the most. He and Brandon Gibson and Steve Smith did most of the work with the first team. Do not despair. This is practice number two, the receiver rotation will change as camp and the preseason move along and sort things out.

Brian Quick did not get a ton of work with the first team. He looks like someone well on his way to earning more and more first team reps, showing fans the skills that made him the top pick in the second round.

Chris Givens was flashing his speed at practice.

Brian Quick worked with the second team more on Monday, getting a nice touchdown toward the end of practice.

Darian Stewart was working with the first team.

Pead turned heads with his footwork.

Something to keep an eye on, Bradford had a pass batted down. It's not a big deal on the second practice of camp, but he has struggled with that in the past.
