PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) – It was another less-than-stellar day for quarterbacks, but somehow the receivers still managed to look great – especially the trio at the top of the depth chart.

Sammy Watkins has an incredible burst off the line. He was routinely blowing past corners – even beating Stephon Gilmore a couple times. I watched him stutter step past Ross Cockrell during one-on-ones, and he easily opened up a two-yard cushion before he was even five yards into his route. Another cool tidbit: Watkins spent more than a half-hour after practice, working with Dez Lewis and another young receiver on beating press coverage. Impressive, from a second-year player to be taking a leadership role like that.

Robert Woods and Percy Harvin really stand out as well. Woods just catches everything, and Harvin is electric.

On the downside, Marquise Goodwin dropped a couple passes after sprinting to get open, and Chris Hogan’s been less steady than usual early on in camp.

None of the three quarterbacks is really standing out. Don’t sound the alarm yet, but it definitely leads to an uneasy feeling around that position.

John Miller went down with an ankle bruise – he’ll be fine. The interesting part was that Cyril Richardson was the man to replace him in the starting lineup. That tells you how impressed the coaching staff is with Richardson.

Rex Ryan also revealed Leodis McKelvin had a setback with his ankle, which means more time with the starters for rookie corner Ronald Darby, who certainly looks like he belongs right now.
