There was a special teams splash for sixth-round pick Robert Davis, who beat everyone downfield on punt coverage and tackled return man Tim White.
Don’t expect new defensive coordinator Greg Manusky to dial up a bunch of exotic blitzes, but do look for evidence of his more aggressive mind-set rubbing off on players, and for signs of improvement out of the rebuilt front seven.
But strong play from the second unit bodes well because many of these guys will see action on game days as both Manusky and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula prefer to rotate players so frequently.
Tonight is also a good opportunity for guys like Ryan Grant (working for a larger role) and Niles Paul (back from injury and starting in place of Jordan Reed) to show their capabilities in this offense.
There’s no indication as to who will start along the defensive line as Allen, free agents Stacy McGee, Terrell McClain, Phil Taylor and young prospects Matt Ioannidis, A.J.
