NFL rookie minicamps

 are hardly a barometer for future success. Players are learning the basics, such as the names of coaches, where to find the locker and how to execute a play call. But a few NFL-transferrable traits should stand out. And one thing -- OK, two things -- usually on display with Pittsburgh Steelers first-round pick T.J. Watt: His hands.A highlight video from the Steelers' Twitter feed shows Watt violently smacking a tackling dummy. Yes, it's a quick clip, but it brings home what the Steelers liked about Watt during Joey Bosa Youth Jersey the pre-draft process -- his ability to win with his upper-body. In late April, both coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert praised Watt's hand usage as advanced for a player who started one full season at outside linebacker at Wisconsin. "He beats people with is upper body just as much as his lower body, and usually you don’t see that type of hand usage and that type of know-how in a one-year player," Colbert said. Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said Watt showcased his hands early in his collegiate career. Despite Watt's position change from tight end and a knee injury that cost him the 2014 season, Chryst quickly noticed Watt the pass-rusher could beat tackles in one-on-one settings with several different hand maneuvers. "He had some natural stuff to him where you knew he would be good," said Chryst of Watt, who finished last year with 15.5 tackles for loss. "We felt pretty good about his (first) fall camp as a pass-rusher. He will work, and he's smart enough to know how to get better, smart enough to listen to caching and watch what other great pros do. He'll put the time in." BEREA, Ohio -- Cody Kessler will begin the Cleveland Browns' offseason practices as the starting quarterback.Though coach Hue Jackson said the job is open, he said Kessler earned the chance to open organized team activities as the starter ahead of Brock Osweiler, Kevin Hogan and second-round draft pick DeShone Kizer. "This thing's Adidas Authentic Dalton Prout Womens Jersey open. It really is," Jackson said Saturday after the team's second rookie camp practice. "But Cody's done a great job. That's the reason I brought his name up first. He's really improved. He's worked his tail off, and he deserves the right and the opportunity to walk in this building and walk out there first. "And they've got to take it from him." Jackson would not commit to Osweiler as the backup, saying Hogan's year with the team has him ahead. Kizer will also get his share of reps. When the Browns acquired Osweiler from Houston in March, they did so to obtain Houston's second-round draft choice in 2018. Osweiler was not in the long-term plans, but he now figures in the mix. "He's competing," Jackson said. "He's here. And I said from the beginning, if a guy is in our locker room we're going to treat him like any of our other players." Osweiler's 21 starts are more than double the total for the other three combined. "I think in this league we all know you can't have enough good quarterbacks, enough guys to train at the position," Jackson said. "You never know how it's going to unfold, and things do happen, but he's competing. "He's done a good job. He's been great in the room with the guys. He's been a good person in the building. We're going to continue to allow him to do that and see what he has to show for us and kind of go from there." Jackson said the breakdown on who gets first-team reps for veteran minicamp in June will be settled at that point. For now, Kessler gets the first chance. As for figuring out reps for four quarterbacks for an open position, Jackson shrugged. "I'll find a way," he said. "I've been through this before, a few times."
